    I am working on a Farmer's Wife quilt using white on white fabrics. I thought I would post a few of the blocks. They are are unpressed and untrimmed. They were downstairs and my sewing room is upstairs. I pulled a muscle in my back on Thursday and am pretty much grounded to the downstairs for a few more days.

    Very interesting. What are you going to use for sashing? Hope your back gets better quickly.

    Very interesting choice, I like it, but I wouldn't let my black cat sleep on it.

    Hope your back feels better soon.

    It is going to be a totally white quilt. I have always wanted a white quilt. I have a black dog who will probably have me using the lint roller on a daily basis, but I don't care. I haven't decided whether to hand or machine quilt yet. I have 17 more blocks finished, but they are in the sewing room upstairs. I am hoping to set up my fw in the living room and work on some more blocks downstairs until my back will let me get back up the stairs. I am doing all the piecing on my fw. I inherited it from my wonderful mother-in-law. She would love what I am doing with her machine.

    I love the blocks and it's an interesting idea. The photos have the blocks on a dark background which shows off the different WOW patterns. but I'm wondering if all your beautiful piecing will disappear on white/light batting, and make it look like a whole cloth... Just wondering if you have laid them out on your intended batting.

    I have laid them on white batting. The piecing shows up to the eye, but didn't show up well to the camera lens.

    As others have said, that is very interesting. I've never seen blocks done with white on white and look forward to seeing your finished quilt. I think it could be quite dramatic depending on how well the piecing shows over batting and backing. What do you plan to use for sashing, batting, batting and quilting thread?

    Keep up the good work.
