Farmer’s Wife

This Farmer’s wife is all 111 blocks. It was hand pieced and hand quilted. I used the Baptist fan quilt design. I use a hand held hoop and thread baste before quilting. I love hand work, but must admit I am more hand pieced topper than hand quilter. So many quilts waiting to be quilted.

  1. I just love your quilt Rita and it makes me want to get back and finish my Farmers Wife blocks. I too love hand stitching but not so much hand quilting. Take care.

  2. love your color scheme for this one.
    I hand piece a lot faster than I hand quilt, that is why I always have a pile of quilt tops waiting in line to be quilted.

  7. Amazing. I set out to make just 50 blocks from that book by hand and don't seem to be making much progress.
