    I posted the picture of our first block earlier this week. Below are the next two we got done.

    In case your not farmilar with our story. My 10 and 14 year old sons are helping mom put together the "Famers Wife Sampler" quilt this summer. My youngest wanted to do a Civil War Sampler (Civil War Diary) in repoduction fabric but we can't afford the book or the fabric right now. So we settled on this book since it was a gift to me. We are doing it with what ever farbic we can get ahold of. Be it from our tiny supply (think shoe box size stash) or what we call Hand-me-down scraps from Nana or anyone else we can get them done.

    We are not doing the blocks in order. But what ever we have the fabric for and fits our moods. I am trying to do the harder ones so that they boys get the eaiser ones. But I might leave the 32 piece block for one of them. They have smaller hands.
    They are not perfect. Nor will the quilt be perfect. I am not experienced as many of the woman on here. I've only been quilting serious for a year or so. But alot of this is being done by kids. Yes my 10 and 14 year old children.

    Here are block #5 and #49

    More than likely it will go on the couch out in the family. Sure isn't going on my bed. Already don't like the colors in it.

    My older son seen the Hobo, riding the rails book by the same author. So we might pick that book up next pay day (July) or the one in Aug. Than we can put that one together.

    Thanks Rose. We are hoping once school lets out to each do one block a day. Or some how do 7 in a week. We could than get the quilt done in a month or so. Would love to be able to do a few other ones done with them this summer.
