Mrs. Farmer

I finshed sewing the blocks and sashing together, the way I wanted them.

I only made  four new blocks but only used three. I had all those blocks. Imagine having enough blocks tucked away to make two entire quilts. I love Sampler Quilts. Each block is so different.

I started to build the blocks into double blocks as those block were all different sizes.

The Bonnet on the right is a double block, with a couple little FW blocks and some strips added to make it 30.5. The one underneath is another double. I use the different size of bonnets, scotty, heart and half blocks. Then the single block was added which is 15.5 inches. These are large blocks that show of the design real well.

The middle section is made with the Farmer's Wife block in the middle and the small FW blocks (5.5). Above and below that middle section are two single blocks.

The first row has two double blocks and one single block at the bottom. The double blocks were the most fun to put together, it was like building something.

I will add a nice border to make it bigger and quilt it and show another pic when done.
