catching up with farmwork.....

I cut and sewed my little pears this morning
had to get back to the farmwork at hand
the month is almost over and I hadn't 
done ANYTHING on them
(I WAS doing 4 blocks a month....sigh)
but I like the pears
(the wonkiness is the seam allowance that will
fix itself once sewn into the quilt)

so then I picked a pinkish red fabric
for my weathered barn
and cut some pieces up
once I finish cutting them I will sew this one
up as well
may try to fit some kids playing in the barn
and thought of another cool thing
what if I made the barn door
BUT made it as a 3d door in the seam
that when you open it 
the kids are playing inside
may have to think a little on that one
but how fun!

once done they will join these 8 blocks 
for a total of 10
at six inches
these would finish at 30 x 12
ugh...........I have a LONNNNNNG way to go

March has been a crazy month and April 
I fear will be no different
many irons in the fire
lots of things to fix
so just plugging along as I can

what are YOU doing on the farm?

You have a great idea for using the 'kids' fabric. I know what you mean about the pears looking wonky. I was concerned about that when I made mine a while ago but then realized it was the seam allowance and it would fix itself. Since I had made the pears already, I made the barn and old glory. Looking forward to what you pick for April!

My farm needs to have the backing made then I can quilt it. I just can't seem to piece it. Maybe next week.
