    I started this as a BOM over two years ago and then got side tracked. I decided I really needed to finish it this year. And over the week-end I finished block #111 - woohoo! Of course, as I was admiring it, I realized I had put one of the rows upside down and had to redo it. But it is finally done. Now to put it together with sashing, etc. Feels good to get this far and had to share it with someone who would understand (that is definitely not my DH who doesn't understand my passion for quilting but supports it all the same)

    I will post pics when it is finally together - provided I master my digital camera by then! I want to add that this BOM (actually 10 blocks per month) was a pleasure to do because the quilt shop included plenty of fabric each month. Don't you hate doing a BOM where it is a puzzle as to how to get all the pieces from the fabric provided?

    Please post it in the Farmers Wife BOW thread. Several have worked on this quilt for the past year and we have been sharing pictures and comments.

    I have admired this pattern. Never had the courage to start. You should be so proud of yourself.

    I'm seven weeks into it and am on block 12. It's nice to know that people do finish.

    Are you posting on the FWS threads? There is a picture thread for every two blocks. We'd so like to see.
