Blocks Away - Friday Night Block Party

Do you remember the Shooting Star block that I made for the Friday Night Block Party?  (Just click on the picture below for the free pattern). 
Well Elaine who hosts the Block Party over at Summer Crafter is giving away two charm packs, courtesy of the Fat Quarter shop, to one lucky person who links a block in November.   It can be any block you like.  Elaine is making the Farmer's Wife quilt blocks and  Susie and I are joining her.
Farmer's Wife Block 1 - Attic Windows
I’m hooked on these little 6” blocks.  They are ideal when I only have an hour or so, after a busy day at work.
Farmer's Wife Block 2 - Autumn Tints
There is a book that details all the blocks and contains templates but I prefer to patch my blocks which means I get to do a little math.
Farmer's Wife Block 5- Bat Wing
But I love patchwork and I quite like math so it is no hardship. 
Farmer's Wife Block 8 - Bouquet
This month Elaine is holding a draw at the end of November to win two charm packs – all you have to do is link up a block sometime this month – it doesn’t have to be the Farmer’s Wife – it can be any block you like. 
Farmer's Wife Block 9 - Box
You could even link up a Patchiqué block or a block that you have created for another project (like Quilty Fun). 

Sew pop on over and check it out.


  1. I just love all of your Farmer's Wife Sampler Blocks so far! They are so pretty and cute!!
    You are right about being able to complete one in a short amount of time. You are so good at putting the blocks together... I am enjoying using the paper pieced patterns on most of them, that some folks on the Yahoo FWSQ group put into files. I am entered in Elaine's giveaway for Nov!

  2. Darling little blocks! I've seen lots of these over the last year, and it's fun to know what they are called.

  3. I really enjoy watching you Patchique progress and your FWQA color combinations are so pretty!. Thanks for the shout out. This week is a tutorial, that's how I started and it's easier for newbies too. XO
