A Farmers Wife and Plain and Simple

 I finished some more of my Farmers Wife blocks last week.  Some of these blocks are from the Barristers Sow-A -Long but I got a little over anxious and started making blocks on my own.  I have the Farmers Wife CD for EQ7 and used it to make the blocks.   I will say it's much easier to just follow Randy and make the blocks she posts on her blog because even with the CD and EQ the cutting directions can be confusing.
I also finished my little Plain and Simple quilt top from Quilts by Cheri.  Cheri has a great blog and is always offering little Mystery Quilts.

Still working on the Cheddar scrappy quilt but I ran out of 2" squares so I need to cut some more.

Also just one more border to finish on the  Beyond the Cherry Tree quilt and that top will be complete.
I am really not in too big of a hurry because I am not looking forward to figuring out how to attach them to the very large center.

Happy Stitching,
Nancy

Your blocks are coming along. The border on BTCT will go on without a hitch. I can't wait to see your's all together, this keeps me motivated!

Love your assortment of blocks - a quilt along is fun watching each block come together.
Your version of Plain and SImple is wonderful.
BTCT - congrats on the border progress. I have border envy ;-) thank you for keeping me motivated.
