Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler - Grandmother

I never had a grandmother (both my parents parents died when they were young) but if I had I like to think she would have worn a print dress like the print in this block.

New project underway - Thirty Something

From a quilt on the cover of American Patchwork and Quilting Issue #134, June 2015, that I at first thought I (and my stash) wasn't up to.   I am now underway on it and just loving it.
Here is how I am holding my 1 1/2" squares and below it my 2 1/2" x 1 1/2" bits.

New fabrics!

Because I am working now on 2 1930's style quilts I needed a few more fabrics - don't we always?
Yesterday I was out looking for local stuff and having been looking at lots of old 1930's adds I had styles and colors in mind and found this.  Between it all it is 16 1/2 yards!
