In case you have been on Mars and didn't hear: The Baseball All Star Game was played here in Kansas City a few weeks ago and it was all the buzz. Me? I stayed home and played my own game with the Farmer's Wife blocks.......just as any good country girl would do
The sashing is easy...add 2.5 inch strips to the sides of each block to be set square. For the blocks set on point, cut two 5 inch squares on the diagonal and then attach the 4 triangles to the four sides. All blocks are then trimmed to 9 inches.
I'll set my blocks into 11 rows of 10 blocks. Since I've made 111 blocks, I'll have one extra to use as a label on the quilt back. (That light pink churn dash in the first picture.) I'm getting excited to see this quilt come together! Be sure to stop over at Cindy's blog to see how she will be using her blocks. Check back in a few weeks to see more of my blocks sashed in Kona white. I'm determined to have this as a "finish" in 2012!
