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,
