Did lots of Farming this week!!

I have been super busy this last week! I keep thinking "it's going to get better next week" and it just seems to be getting busier and busier. Hopefully things will start to slow down a bit and I can relax with my family a bit more. Last week I was able to get a lot of blocks cut out. It was a lot of fun getting to just sew them up one after another. I laid them all out to see what colors I need to add. My honey walked over and said he was really excited for me to finish this quilt. He asked how big it was going to be and I told him I was doing all 111 blocks which comes out to a Queen size. He then said can you add more blocks so it will fit out King size bed? Wow did he just say that? :) I love that man!!!  I'm loving the way it's starting to look. The blocks are so much fun, but a lot of work. It really feels like I should be further along than I am. I'm enjoying each block and can't wait to cut out some more. 

So here are the blocks I got done in the past two days.

The first one is Block # 12 Broken Sugar Bowl

Block # 13 Buckwheat

Block #14 Butterfly at the Crossroads

Block #15 Buzzard's Roost

Block #16 Calico Puzzle

I some how skipped three blocks 17-19 and will get busy on those this week.

Block #20 Churn Dash

I also skipped ahead and did Block #102 Whirlpool 
 It is the same block that Amy from Stitchery Dickory Dock showed us how to do for February's Craftsy BOM. I love that block so I decided to recreate it for this quilt. 

I also decided to redo Blocks #2 Autumn Tints
And Block #4 Basket Weave

The last few day have been pretty productive. 

I'm linking up with Sew Modern Monday and Manic Monday .
