My Farmers Wife Quilt is Finished!!!...


My Farmers Wife is finally complete:)
YaY!
I know I've posted about my progress about a bajillion times
 because I've been working on it for quite a while.

Every time I had a break in between deadlines...

I would sew up a block or two.








And as I progressed I posted a few pictures ....


And a few more....


until I had all of them complete and laid out on the floor to arrange in order.
(by all of them...I mean 52...for the size of quilt that I made)


I showed you my sashing, borders, binding and backing fabric.


And even showed you when I almost had the top complete.


Now it feels good to be able to show it all finished!


As usual...
I hung it on my front room wall for a quick photo shoot 
along side some of my vintagey collections.


It will eventually find it's home on my kitchen wall...
a fitting place for a farmers wife quilt I think!

I've loved making this quilt because as I have told you before...
I love making sampler quilts and I have made many over the years.
Even though I'm happy it's complete...
I must admit that I'll miss working on it:)

Tomorrow I have a
 BIG announcement...
so stay tuned...
and don't forget to 
have a quilty kind of day:)
xx

Pin It!

I just LOVE your quilt. Maybe some day I will do a Farmer's Wife...

I also ADORE the vintage items you photographed with...particularly the dress form and the white cabinet. SOME DAY I am going to have a house full of 1930's colors and vintage items! You are my inspiration.

Kim said...

Your quilt is beautiful! I also love the way it is staged. Do you have a photo album of your home!? It looks like it would be beautiful! Do you know the name of the paint color in this picture?

Cassie A said...

Lori, your Farmers Wife quilt is such an inspiration to me! Especially because yours is made of light and bright colors and is placed amongst vintage childrens books...all of which speaks to my heart. Thank you for sharing such a delightfully inspiring quilt!

The quilt is so pretty. I love the colors. Mostly I am making the little design boards you use they are so nice.
