My Farmer's Wife Blocks Are D-O-N-E Done!

Happy Dancing here!  This is one of the projects that has kept me from blogging more frequently.  My Farmer's Wife blocks are now DONE!  I'm so happy; yet kinda sad at the same time.  Silly, I know; but I have really enjoyed working on them.

Get ready for a block show:

Blocks 51-60
Blocks 61-70
Blocks 71-80
Blocks 81-90
Blocks 91-100
Blocks 101-111

If you missed the first show, you can click here for the first 50.

I went to the quilt shop the other day and purchased the fabric for my sashing, cornerstones and setting triangles.  I am going with a nice brown for the sashing, but wanted to brighten the quilt a bit by using a pretty gold for the cornerstones and a gold tone-on-tone for the setting triangles. 

I don't know yet what I will use for the borders.  I want to construct the center first and then take it to the shop to see what speaks to me.  I used all civil war repros in the quilt, so I know it will be a repro fabric for the border.

I see a lot of cutting in my well as figuring out what blocks will go where in the quilt.  I think my first step will be organizing the blocks by colorway and then just playing on my "design floor" (otherwise known as the great room floor).  LOL.

Wish me luck,

My Top is DONE. Not Quilted yet- more decisions before that happens. I like your sashing, cornerstones and setting Triangles fabric choices.
