FARMERS FIELDS QUILT BLOCK

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.

Cutting requirements

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.
