  1. Life on the Farm BOM Finishing pt 2? Are we still supposed to be waiting on this? Or are we now done?

    • Hey Janice! Well, there are two parts, but in the move I’ve misplaced the second and am sorting through a pile now trying to find the rest of it. This DOES NOT affect how you finish your quilt, you can do it however you like. It was merely some suggestions for things you might try. I will post this as soon as I am able to find all of the pages to this document. I apologize. Life here is not completely organized since moving and all we’ve had going on. I just last week got my office/sewing room/school room unpacked and trying to file things where they belong. Thanks for understanding, and for reminding me of this! Nichole :)

  2. When are you going to get block 10 and the finishing directions back up, so we can download them?

  3. Oops! I found it, never mind. Many thanks for providing this BOM for us! Caroline

  4. Is there a photo for Block 11?

  5. I could not get any of block 10 to download or the finishing directions either. Both said PDF failed to load.

  6. Is it me or are others having trouble opening some of the pdf files
    Block 10 Photo and Directions I couldn’t get open as well as Finishing Directions/Part 1

  7. Hi Nichole,
    Wonderful job! I have copied all blocks ,work in progress. I tried to copy block 10-old red barn cover photo but it atated did not start with phf[?] then tried to copy block 10 old red barn directions and the finishing directios part 1 was stated the file was broken and could not be fixed. Mot sure if that was form your end or mine. I copied all other bolcks and directions without any difficulties.
    Keep up the good,no , excellent work
    Juanita

    • I will work on this. It is probaby my end! :) Be looking for the update, I will be sure to post about it when it’s fixed. Thanks for letting me know! Nichole

  8. When clicking on the finishing instructions a system message states the file is damaged and cannot be repaired. Please check/fix. Thanks Kim

    • Will do! Thanks for letting me know! Be looking for the post to say that it is updated. NIchole

  9. I have linked your BOM on my blog but the last few blocks aren’t linked on this page. http://happywren.wordpress.com/life-on-the-farm-free-bom/

    Thanks for a great pattern!

    • Oooppps! Yes, I forgot to add those and will do so! Thanks so much! Nichole

  10. just found this and I am SOO GLAD I DID, this is really cute, cant wait to see the other blocks (NO HURRY) so settle in first. Thanks for sharing your talents.

  11. Are there any more blocks coming out or is block 8 the last one?

    • YES! There are twelve total….I just did not anticipate a huge move smack in the middle of it! More coming, promise! It is too cute so don’t miss out. The blocks will be here in a few short weeks. Nichole

      • Great thanks!

  12. Obrigada…
    Muito bacana…
    Beijos

  13. I hope you have great weather for your move. It is a lot of work but you find stuff and get to look at it all. (Is that good or bad!!??)
    I love the farm patterns; you have done a super job.
    Blessings

    • You are so sweet! It will be like having two Christmases this year! One when I open the boxes and another when we do presents. :)

  14. Dear Nichole, Please ignore my last email. I FINALLY got the PDF for block 2 to open! Must not have held my head just right. Sorry for the trouble. Caroline

    • Yippeeee!!! No problem. So glad you got it to work! :)

  15. Nice site. I loved.
    Thanks

    • So glad you are here! Welcome! It’s going to be the best blog ever when we keep getting new folks like you joining in! :) Blessings! Nichole

  16. Hi Nichole. Thanks so much for going to all the time/trouble to put all the blocks in pdf. It’s much appreciated. The links worked for me.

    • YIPPEEEE!!! I am so happy! I hope you’ll share your photos of completed blocks and your quilt when you are done :) It was so worth it…have a great night! Nichole

  17. Dear Nichole, I have been unable to open the directions for several blocks. Could you perhaps post them ALL as PDF files? (Pretty please with sugar on it?) I love your blocks! Caroline

    • Yes, I most certainly will work on that! I know it’s given others a hard time as well….so glad you like the blocks and I will do that and try to have that tab updated with all the links in one place. :) Nichole

  18. beautiful,thanks

  19. Hi Nichole,

    Where do you find the time to do all this! Thank you ! Hope to see more of your designs in the future. I can see you like a lot of Australian, Blogs. Do et me know if you would like a few old Craft books from here. Will be pleased to send it on to you. Reply to my email address and I will do.

    Cheers from an Aussie in Botswana

    • Well I don’t do anything alone! Hubby is the builder and my son did the majority of the planting of the tomatos and veggies. My daughter does a lot of the animal care around here. And I don’t sleep a lot, ha! As far as sewing…like I said…I stay up really late and work on it while I watch t.v. or if I get a free moment or two I draw and plan and such. I also type pretty fast… honestly it’s just fun and I do not sit still much (a genetic thing from my mom). We’ve been on a school break since April and so our days are our own…and so in the next couple of weeks I’ve got to get moving and get even more accomplished knowing my days are numbered! Thanks for your comment…and I am glad you are here! I love getting to know all you gals! :) Nichole
