September Farmer's Wife Blocks

Hi All - I'm posting a photo of this month's Farmer's Wife blocks. Why? Because for once, I am done a few hours early with them! That's right - I'm the princess of procrastination. I can't remember the last time I was done with the blocks a WHOLE DAY early! And, count 'em. There's 7 blocks this month.
Oh ya. I'm on a roll.
The September 7.
Let me you, these ain't easy. Except for maybe the Puss in the Corner block (hot pink).  We'll need our 16th ruler for some of these... (did I hear a collective moan?). The easy blocks are few and far between now. Oh, how I long for a simple four patch!
But, we can do this! They may not be easy, but they're done...and they measure 6 1/2".

So, Friday night ladies - I'll see you soon. The Saturday class is Sept. 10. Two sessions - 9 to 11 and noon -2.

For class - Don't forget to bring a 2 1/2" strip of a favorite fabric. This will be the binding for our display boards we'll be making in class. Also, if you have a glue gun, please bring it. We can also work on a block in class...let's say the Tall Pine Tree. Choose two fabrics for this: a dark and a light. Then, from each cut:
4 rectangles at 1 1/4" by 3 1/2
4 rectangles at 2 3/16 by 3 5/16
We'll do the rest in class.

See you all soon!
