Farmers Wife Blocks

In June, my good friend/cousin-in-law Camille, told me about the Farmers Wife Quilt Sew Along. I was immediately intrigued by the idea of joining the sew along and making this sampler quilt my next endeavor. There are 111 different blocks and each uses teeny tiny templates for the piecing. I have never used templates before or pieced anything this small but it has been challenging and quite enjoyable so far. The fabric I am using is mostly from my fabric stash. The main inspiration was Its a Hoot my MoMo. I have also used some Central Park by Kate Spain, Bliss and Ruby by Bonnie and Camille, and some Amy Butler polka dots here and there. I should have kept better track of the order in which I sewed. I can say I do remember the first one I sewed and that is the first one I posted just below. The rest are just in the order I posted them.
