This is such a pretty quilt block that I’ve quite fallen in love with it. There seem to be several different blocks all called farmers fields, but this is definitely the one that I like best. I have made it here as a 16″ block.
eight 2.1/2″ white squares, four 2.1/2″ squares each of green and brown
eight 2.7/8″ squares each of the following combinations: white/brown, white/green and brown/green.
Making the quilt block
All the 2.7/8″ squares are made into half square triangle units by placing two squares with right sides together and marking a line along the diagonal. Sew a 1/4″ seam either side of the marked line and cut along the line to produce two half square triangle units. Repeat this with all the s.7/8″ squares in the colour combinations listed above.
Lay the patchwork pieces out in eight rows of eight squares each as shown in the photo. I don’t think that it will help much for me to list the squares – the colours contrast enough that I think you can see where everything is placed.
Sew the squares together across the rows and then sew the rows together to complete the farmers fields quilt block.
