Farmers Wife Friday - The Drought is Broken Edition!

There's been a fairly long drought down on my farm...

 ...in fact, I really can't remember the last time we had some rain, and I was beginning to think that we may just be in drought forever :(

However, some recent significant events have seen my interest in farming renewed...like cleaning up my craft room and finding my lovely big pile of completed blocks...so pretty! Like seeing Kristyne from Pretty By Hand's AMAZING completed quilt! (you sooo have to check it out...it is diabolically beautiful). Like following Camille Roskelley on Instagram, and watching new blocks appear on her feed almost daily. Like discussing fabric combinations with my sweet friend Hope, and watching how cleverly she puts her Rose Parade fabrics to use on her Farmers Wife blocks. How could I resist?

I tossed around addding some new fabrics to the mix (instead of sticking to Rose Parade, dots and crisp white), but once I started playing, I decided I just COULD NOT contaminate the beauty of the Rose Parade :)

So, here we have the blocks to break the drought! Number 72, Railroad...


 ...can you spot the pattern straight through the middle of the block?

And Number 73 Rainbow Flowers...
...a bit hard to see in my photo, but I've used the same pattern in red, hot pink, white, and a plain white square in the corner.

Here's hoping the rain continues! (and happy Friday!)

Oh my! So beautiful... You were quick! I love the Rose parade on white. Wish I had done it too sometimes. My miniature ones will all be on white :)

And thank you, you're so nice to me :)
