WIP Wednesday: Buckwheat Edition

I missed WIP Wednesday last week, but if you keep up with me regularly, you know that I've managed to get quite a bit done over the last two weeks. To recap: I created a photo tutorial for the Zig Zag block I've asked my hivemates to make me for my month of the We Bee Learning Be. I also completed all six of my dresden blocks for the 3 x 6 mini bee.

I've been making progress on my Flora HST charm quilt, primarily by cutting Kona Snow charms and prepping them for stitching. I hope to sew the seams tonight.

I finally turned my attention back to my Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt blocks. Actually, just one block, #13 Buckwheat. I hand pieced the majority of this block in front of the television. There are SO MANY pieces. I'm embarassed to say how long I've been working on this block for. I guess I just don't spend much time watching TV anymore. I finally got so tired of this block that this evening, I machine pieced the final four seams.  This is a block that I should have paper pieced because my points aren't fabulous. I do like the fabric I chose though.

  1. I love those dresdens, very pretty fabric choices.

  2. Hand piecing takes time and sometimes it is just the way to enjoy quiltmaking most... love that buckwheat block.

  3. Your buckwheat block looks fabulous!

  4. Your points look a-okay, better than a quilt I saw in a book the other day. Love the Dresdens too.

  5. Looking great, Lisa! I love those dresden plates and your fabric choices!
