Farmer's Wife enjoying time at the Spa

The LAQ spa!!

Instagram post from my LAQ Cathy Kirk.... can't wait to pick up my quilt!

For the backing, I used a grey print from another of Bonnie and Cammile's lines.  My extra block was all nested nicely in the back as my quilt label.

Deciding on the borders and the backing was my May goal for Another Lovely Year of Finishes.  I'll be linking up at Another Lovely Year of Finishes .

Happy Stitching!

Farmer's Wife

I used 110 of my 111 blocks to assemble my Farmer's Wife quilt.

I left block #68 - Postage Stamp - off of the quilt. For a block that is a simple postage stamp block, it came out quite bad.  Either my pressing or my paper piecing really distorted this block.  

This is what it looked like:

I decided to remake the block for the back and use scraps from all the fabric used on the front of the quilt.

It will sit in the middle of my pieced back!!

Happy Stitching!
