While spending too much time reading blogs today, I noticed that quite a few quilting blogs are working on blocks from The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt book. The first few blocks didn’t look all that hard to do, so I ambled down to my quilt studio, located the book, and put the accompanying CD in my computer. I printed out the templates for the first two blocks and gathered some scraps together.
Fortunately I have plenty of scraps to make at least 10 of these quilts. I counted my scraps last night and there are one jillion and 49. Well, that count might not be completely accurate, but you get the idea. I do not want for fabric.
Here is the result of my afternoon fun.
I decided to kind of follow the colors in the book so that I didn’t have to agonize over choices. There are no promises here that I will do all the blocks or make this quilt, but I will have to admit I had a good time making these two blocks.
The templates made it very easy in spite of the fact that the first two pieces I sewed on backwards. Quilter error!!!! After that I paid attention. Paying attention prevents quilter errors. Did you know that?
