    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

    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.

    This is a stunning quilt. I like this setting for the Farmers Wife blocks so much better than any other I have seen. Great job!

    What could be better in the eyes of those farmers than bright greens. I think your quilt is gorgeous. I like your quilting choices because they complement the lovely squares rather than compete with them. I like the paper pieced technique you used. Great finish.

    That is gorgeous! I love small blocks (make mini quilts off and on) but haven't committed to a complete quilt with the tiny blocks...but I do love them!

    Beautiful in green and white. Good job. I have the book but not the courage (so far). Thanks for posting, I may have to look thru that book again.

    Beautiful! I love your color choices. I haven't seen one done using only 1 color palette. I really like it. I think if I was going to make this one I'd do it the same way.
