Ready to Begin!

Well, I got my Farmer's Wife Sampler Book and love the letters and patterns!! I've been following some  FWQA bloggers and it seems this is quite a challenge with templates and all!!   Yikes!!  I wonder if hand piecing would be easier on some of those odd shaped pieces....we'll see!

I was going to use Aunt Grace fabrics or some that kept to the  1920s~30's but I just can't get away from the coral reds and
 turquoise blues!
Of course, I had to throw in a few wild cards...green!
Most of these are Moda, but I have some that have been around and need to find a home~

Farmer's Wife Quilt Along

Well, now I'm off to trace templates and decide whether to start with block one or make them according to the story selections...
oh what to do!!


  1. The templates are mostly frustrating because of how they only print one to page. But once you get one printed out and figure out the measurements you are set for many other blocks.
    I love your fabric choice. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

  2. I have some tutorials over on my blog that might help you out some.
    I've been having fun making the blocks and I love the book...the essays from the farmers wives are so fun to read.
