I think every quilter dreams of having the opportunity to quilt a The Farmer’s Wife Sampler quilt. I was lucky enough to quilt one recently. One hundred and eleven different 6 inch blocks! This quilt is a challenge for the patch worker as well as the quilter.
First I stitched in the ditch around all the blocks.Then I stitched a cross through all the sashings and those tiny 1” corner stones. Every block then stitched differently to suit the patchwork.
Next onto the curved crosshatching in the cream setting triangles.
Finally to suit the style of the quilt a nice classic feather in the border.
I’m grateful to cross this quilt off my “must do” wish list and grateful to Lyn for sending her treasure to me to quilt.
Bye for now
