What on earth am I doing??
I must be crazy! When LaDonna and I first started the Farmer's Wife project, we decided to to it with Christmas colors. She would do reds and I would do burgundies, since we each had more of those colors. So I thought! While I was gathering the Christmas greens and reds to send to LaDonna, I discovered that I also had lots of reds and greens in addition to my burgundies and dark greens! I got to thinking about all of that fabric. What am I going to do with all of this stuff? Then it came to me...I have two children and two different color ways. Duh... make one of each and maybe there won't be any fussing about one child eventually getting "the Christmas Quilt". That way each of my beloved children will get a Christmas quilt from Mom.
Here's what I've done so far....block one and two for the red version:
Block two for burgandy, I know it's a bit different, but it is Christmas fabric and it works for the burgandy colors:
