Farmer's Daughter block 1

I've been thinking about the Farmer's Daughter block, since I discovered it to fill a need on a quilt, which, sadly, I have not touched since I attached those stars to it. 3 months ago. Hmmm.

I've been thinking about bee blocks, too, and dreaming of what I would ask for if I were in one, and thought this would be fun, but my schedule is insane, so I don't want to subject anyone to it. I decided to bee by myself, which I do realize is crazy. I'm calling the hashtag #farmersdaughterblockalong if you want to join in.

My plan is to have the blocks be different, either slightly or monsterously, and yet 10", using only 2.5" squares and corresponding half square triangles. But not paying much attention to the tradition color placement. I intend to mix it up entirely, to see what can be made from it. In symmetric patterns, or not, with coordinating colors, or not, based on whatever I feel like at the time, but anyway, I cut some fabric, out of the scrap bins for once!) settled on a low volume background, and off I went.

Block one.
So, I'm going to try to have a new one each week, and hopefully after a few months a quilt.
