Farmer's Wife Quilt-a-Long - wk 1

I came across the blog, msmcporkchopquilts, a little while ago and found out that she was co-hosting a quilt-a-long using The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt book.  This is my sort of quilt along as she is doing 2 blocks a week and they are not in the same order as her co-host.  That gives me complete freedom to quilt what I want to!  I have started a little behind, so the first several weeks will happen very quickly.  I let my 4 yo son pick my first several blocks.  He thinks this is really cool and I am relishing every minute of that!  Without further ado, here are my first two blocks!!!

#2   Autumn Tints
All I can tell you about the fabric is the solid orange is from IKEA, the rest are scraps that I inherited.

#71   Puss in the Corner
Again, I don't know anything about the fabrics, as they were not purchased by me. 

~ the numbers listed above are the number of the quilt block in the book~


  1. sarah! i JUST ordered this book from amazon! of course, with my mom right around the corner, i have no idea when i'll start, but i do plan to start sometime. so cool! your blocks look great. can't wait to see your progress. :)

  2. Once you read the stories, you will want to buy land and work it!!!
