Farmer's Wife and Block Frenzy blocks

Al is working today so I get to spend some quality time with my sewing machine :) The block above is from Farmer's Wife, cups and saucers block #25. This one was foundation pieced so it was super fast and easy... AND so precise! I have two or three more blocks that I would like to complete TODAY, from that quilt.

The block below is one I made a couple of days ago for Hearts to Holly's Block Frenzy. I call it Interlocking Stars. I'm not sure what the actual name is. The gray fabric is from Lily and Will... Puttin' on the ritz. If anyone wants to join in the block frenzy, just send a 12-1/2" block (unfinished size) to Sue at Hearts to Holly (or drop it off). You need to use the current line... the yellow and grays from Lily and Will. For every block you make and bring in, your name goes into the pot once. At the end of a month and a half, she has someone pull for the winner. Winner gets all the blocks sent or brought in! This is going to make a sweet sampler quilt. I want to up my chances so I need to make at least one more block. The winner also gets to choose the next line used. :)

Very Pretty blocks Deb. Love the fabric line too.

I've been slowly pushing myself back to quilting. My back pain gets terrible in the mid day so early morning is the best time to sew.  ...
