I've got 4 more farmers wife blocks to show you.
I now have 48 blocks sewn...
and that's how many I need for my quilt!
I am not making all of the blocks in the book...
(there are 111 total)
I wanted to make it smaller so that my quilt can hang on my kitchen wall.
My quilt will measure
55" x 69"
which will fit perfectly for the space that I have planned.
Now it's time to think about sashings and borders.
After auditioning several fabrics from my stash...I like the way these 5 go together so these are what I have decided on.
What do you think?
I'm using Pam's small yellow polka dot for my sashings...
and my Sew Cherry yellow sew leaves for the borders...
my Sew Cherry red gingham for the binding...
and finally the Annie's Farm Stand seed catalogue prints for the backing.
Now to lay out the blocks and get them into rows!
Wish me luck:)
Have a quilty weekend my friends!
P.S. Stay tuned...I have a really fun announcement on Monday:)
