Anyway, I received my book in time so I had no excuse not to partake. And I am happy to report that I duly made the first block:
the second block
I haven't bought special fabric for this quilt (maybe I need to!) and decided I will stick to my stash as much as possible. To be honest I don't like 30s fabric so I knew I wasn't going to go that route. I just want a happy cheery quilt. Let's see how far I will go from my stash.... My middle daughter is dreaming of having a poney farm when she grows up so maybe she will be a Farmer's Wife.
In a moment of complete madness, I even went to check if I had already made blocks #12 and #16 of the original Farmer's wife quilt (that I started... a few years back) and you know what? I had.
I haven't made block #8 so hopefully I will find time for this one soon (lots of fiddly pieces and some Y seams that I am thinking of changing...)
Maybe the new Farmer's Wife will help the old Farmer's Wife to progress. Watch this space!
3 blocks for this month 350-blocks challenge.
