'Block 3' is almost done ...

Here's the result of my weekend's hexagon piecing - I've added the 'block 3' border to my Mrs Billings project, and I'm just thrilled with the result!


All that remains now is to put together the hexagons for the corners, and they're a little different. If you look at the centre block - the six diamonds in the very centre, and then the six hexagons surrounding them are what will go in each corner. I haven't actually decided on what fabrics I'll use, which is why I'm procrastinating with the piecing. I think I'll fussy cut a cute border print that I have, but not sure just yet. I hope to make that choice today :-)

I'd also like to get back to making some more Farmers Wife Sampler blocks today - do you ever wish for more hours in a day? I often do :-) With parent/teacher interviews tonight, a basketball training meeting after school, and other everyday stuff, I can't see too much being done in spare minutes.

But I did get a couple more FWS blocks made last week, and here they are:

Block 48 - Homeward Bound

Block 71 - Puss in the Corner

Definitely not challenging blocks, but so much fun to see the block count slowly growing.

Chatter soon - I have my work cut out for me today! xox

Your Mrs. Billings coverlet is stunning! What fun it must be to see it come together in person. Each round just adds to its beauty.
What's your current count on Farmer's Wife blocks? I'm enjoying watching your progress.

I always wish there were more hours in a day -- so many quilts to work on, almost makes me wish we could do without sleep!

Your Mrs. Billings is great! Love the way it's coming together.
I've thought on and off about the Farmer's Wife but I don't know if I'd follow through.
