My Farmer's Wife Quilt

So for probably the last year I have been working on the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt by Laurie Aaron Hird.  There are 111 different blocks and they finish at 6 inches. (6 1/2 unfinished).  That's a lot of blocks and piecing.  I machined pieced my blocks and there were only two blocks that I could not do. So I found two others that I added to the quilt. There are over 3,175 pieces in this quilt and it measures approx. 82.5 x 102.

I will be putting this in our guilds quilt show this March along with 3 other quilts.  This will be my first time putting quilts in a show.

My longarm quilter used the pattern Clam Shell and it just came out stunning.  So after all the hard work and struggles putting this together I am just so totally pleased with it and it is on the bed even though I still have the binding to hand sew.

On a little side note the new Schnibbles for this month is Jersey Girl!  WhooHoo!! I've been wanting to make this one as soon as Carrie released it and I am shamelessly using the same fabric she used in hers which was Midwinter Reds by Minick & Simpson for Moda. I love this fabic!!  The photo below is from her website Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!
