Call Me a Farmer’s Wife

I’m sure you’ve probably seen the Farmer’s Wife Quilt-Along fever sweeping across blog land recently. It was started by Angela of Fussy Cut and Amanda of msmcporkchopquilts and can be found here on Flickr.  The QAL is based on the book The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt and is super addicting! I came into the FWQAL a bit late so I’m currently 2 blocks behind, but here’s what I’ve got so far:


I would really have loved to have made it with more modern fabrics because  I must be honest, I’m totally jealous of some of the gorgeous blocks in the Flickr group. But, I’m determined to keep it scrappy, I’m a new sewist and my stash is very small, and I’ve enjoyed using bits of fabric that were mostly all scraps given to me by other people.

Week 2 blocks


Week 3 blocks

I decided not to go in order with the blocks and so far they have all come together really quickly.  This is going to be a fun, long term project.
