Default Farmers Wife

The Farmers Wife book contains 100 patterns of 6 1/2 inch blocks designed by women married to farmers many years ago .I can't remember the exact years . I wouldn't have attempted them except they gave paper pieced patterns as an easier way to make them. Some had over 50 pieces. I made 53 of them

Beautiful quilt and quilting. That green makes it jewel-like, specifically emeralds.

Kudos to you for giving it a go. Turned out sooooo beautiful and my favorite color. If you ever get tired of it, you can send it my way and I'll love it to death. Great job.
