Farmer's Wife 1930s quilt block no. 68 - Mrs Fay. Patched. Ignore the paper-piecing templates - they are overly difficult for such a simple block. Much simpler - and quicker - to piece this block.

Block 13 - Pharlemia. Another Farmer's Wife 1930s paper-pieced block. I am loving all the scrap busting with these blocks.

Farmer's Wife 1930s quilt block no. 66 - Mrs. Anderson.  I paper-pieced the four corners and then patched the block together.  Tip: take all papers off before joining sections so you can match, and nest, seams.  Nice, easy block.

Block 8 - Iris.  This is a Farmer's Wife 1930s paper-pieced block.  I had trouble with this block in terms of matching up the points - I don't really know why as the block finished perfectly to size!

The makings of a Farmer's Wife

If you've been following along on Instagram, you know I recently pulled all my Farmer's Wife blocks out again. I have 29 left to go to make the twin size version. Yay! (In case you aren't familiar with Farmer's Wife,...

The Girl Who Quilts: Farmer's Wife QAL - Using templates! Tutorial

Farmer's Wife QAL - Using templates!

I seriously considered ditching the templates and working out the math for each block as I go along. I love math, and I know that my work is more accurate when I rotary cut my pieces. But I wanted to keep in the spirit of this project, so I'm using the templates from the book. I hand pieced and quilted my first quilt using templates, so this process isn't new to me. This time around, I am using my rotary cutter to cut around the templates and I'm machine piecing my blocks. I thought I'd…

Farmer's Wife 1930s Quilt Along Blocks 91 and 92 Sarah and Sonnie

Time for blocks 92 and 93, Sarah and Sonnie in the Farmer's Wife 1930s QAL. I've had sore hands this week so I've been looking for shortcuts and for Sarah (p.250, letter p.78) I rotary pieced the whole block rather than foundation paper piecing. If you want any help calculating flying geese or with different half-square triangle methods, you can refer to my Making a Quilt series for Sewing Directory. Justine returns for her last guest post and you can read her thoughts on this block, and the…

Farmer's Wife 1930s Quilt Along

So..... that was a bit of a blogging break, wasn't it?! Life got a bit more crazy for a while there and this blog fell by the wayside. ...

Farmer's wife quilt...love the layout.  She just did a small meander between all of the  blocks. Great idea!

Quilts of 2011

(not yet quilted -- with luck, I will finish hand quilting this in 2012!) (not yet quilted -- another 2012 project!) Whew! After sorting through all of these photos, I'm tired! And I'm wondering how in the world I did this much quilting this year?!?! (and thinking that I must be a bit crazy!) Happy New Year!

AWESOME!!
