Try, Try Again

Reluctantly, I tried this block again. There was no way that I was going to cut all those pieces again, so I ripped apart the entire block and re-did it. 
I am not entirely happy with how it turned out. All of these triangles were wicked tough for me. Some of my points look alright, but then I look at all of the mess-ups. Oh well. Looks like I will have A LOT of practice with triangles while working on this quilt-a-long.

AND I absolutely love the color combination. I want to do an entire quilt with this deep tealy blue and olive-ish green.

I do really like how all of my blocks are coming along. The only one I really don't care for is the Block #1 Attic Window. It is the block on the far left corner there. Yellow middle. 

About once a week we have a big Caesar salad with grilled chicken and croutons for dinner. I think that it's my favorite meal. Take a look at our homemade croutons.

Just another looksie --

Check out my flickr photos for more Farmer's Wife Quilt-a-long photos.



  1. No one is perfect, I think they look great! Mmmm Croutons are making me hungry!

  2. Hmmmmmmm....chicken ceasar salad - yum! But your designs are quite intricate and beautiful. Many kudos to you! Here is something though you should not forget this month:It is not only the month for Halloween, but breast cancer awareness month!!! Treat yourself or a loved one because you care! I am just stopping by with a reminder to do your self breast exam.
