Farmer's Wife

This weekend I had some time to work on my farmer's wife sampler quilt.  I went all out this time around and completed TEN all at the same time!  Yay, me.  Here is how they came out ...











Sorry some of the photo's are dark.  I was racing the sun at this point in the day!

Sew long for now,

  1. Finding time to take pictures while there is sun is a challenge! The blocks look great, broken dishes is one of my favorite blocks and I really like rail-road, which I hadn't seen before.

  3. Your fabric choices and piecing are just perfect! Love the chalk board to display the names, too. Well done on all your blocks, Chelsea! This is going to make a fabulous quilt!

  7. I love your chalkboard idea to label the quilt blocks for the photos! Beautiful quilt too! I'm trying to think of a clever way to imitate the chalkboard idea without completely copying it :)

  8. Oo I really love Flock, Broken Dishes, and Linoleum. I'm always partial to little triangle blocks such as flock and broken dishes, and the colors you used make them pop. Linoleum, though, I haven't been able to figure out how to make modern in my quilt so I've been putting it off. Yours looks splendid, however, so maybe I'll tackle that this afternoon.
