FNwF - Show and Tell - 3rd Time is a Charm

It was FNwF (Friday Night with Friends) and I got some quality time in the sewing room.

you may recall my previous post about the Birds in the Air block for my Farmers Wife quilt .... I was not having a very good time of it :(

Well, I finally had success (well sort of)

FW #7 - Birds in the Air
and it only took an hour and a half!
I really took my time with this block - trimming at every stage

it is still not perfect, but it is better than my first attempt.

That's it for me with this block - three times making the same block is the limit for me LOL
I will be happy with this slightly imperfect block :)

Progress Shot - 15 blocks
I can reveal the colour version of the Double Aster block I made for Merry, in the CraftMad Family Quilt

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day - any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.


  1. The pieces of the Farmers Wife quilt are tiny. Love the blocks you have made so far. I am very slowly doing it and haven't sewn on it for ages but it is all there in its own tub when the urge to work on it strikes lol. I think I have made about 16 blocks from memory. But I am only going to do a lap quilt with it.

  2. love what you have finished sew far

  3. Great blocks and I can't see anything imperfections! I have the book and want to make a quilt but so far have not started. Happy Easter.

  4. That block looks pretty perfect to me! Love the blocks you have made so far. The quilt is going to be goregous. You reminded me I have the book..... seeing your work is making me want to make a start too. The block you made for Merry is beautiful... bet she's pleased with it. xx

  5. I agree with everyone, that block looks perfect to me. Well done with all those triangles. Love the block you sent me as always so neat....great fabrics.
