Design Wall Monday

What a fun weekend. I had a couple of "quilty" events on Saturday followed by my husband's company Christmas party. And we had friends (we hadn't seen in a couple of years) who stayed at our house on Saturday night.  The best man at our wedding 39 years ago is joining my husband's company and so he and his wife came for the party and stayed to visit. It was so good to see them again and catch up.

I finally fit in a little sewing time Sunday afternoon after our friends left for home.  I made another Farm Wife block.  These cute little 6" blocks are all named after women and are from the 1930's Farmer's Wife book. Not sure how many I'll actually make, but I have been enjoying the stories and the blocks from this book. 

Then I worked on Clue 3 of Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt Allietare.  I've cut all of the pieces for all 3 clues. Clue 1 is done (294 HST).  I have sewn half of the Clue 2 sections (40/80 "santa hats") and have sewn 1/4 of the Clue 3 sections (30/120 four-patches). Actually for Clue 3 I have all of the two-patches sewn and ready for become four-patches. And 30 of the four-patches are done, so I guess I'm more than 1/4 of the way through those.

Check out what others are working on this week at Patchwork Times' Design Wall Monday.


  1. Love that bright yellow in the four patches.

    Visiting with old friends is always fun, especially when you haven't seen them in ages. Are you still in contact with your maid of honor?

  2. Your yellows are great. The fabrics in your new farmers wife block are so much fun, too. Glad you were able to catch up with old friends.
