My pretties

I love my pretties.... these Farmer's Wife blocks are just so cute to take out and look at.

All 111 of them.

Enjoy the parade. 

  Blocks 1 through 25

blocks 26 through 50 - 

 blocks 51 through 75 - 

Blocks 76 - 95

Blocks 96 - 111

This was such a fun journey.   I posted about my first block on July 23, 2014.   The whole process took me about 8 1/2 months.  Most weeks, I did 3 blocks but there were a couple of weeks at the end of the year where I didn't do any.

When I made my New Jersey quilt, I had purchased this yummy stack of Vintage Modern fabrics.  I just loved my finish quilt and gave it away to my mom for Christmas.  I had lots of the fabric left so decided to make my FW quilt in the same fabric line.

Paper piecing allowed me to use the smallest of pieces - no small scrap was spared.

Thanks to all my blogging friends for all your encouragement along the way!!

Happy Stitching!


  1. Congratulations.....that's a lot of blocks! Love your color palate and can't wait to see what you do with these. Great job!

  2. What a great accomplishment :) You can really tell the attention you have paid to getting the color balance just right!

  3. These are so amazing! It has been fun following along as you made them. I love your fabric choices for it too!

  4. Congratulaions on this accomplishment! I love the colors and am anxious to see the top.

  5. I am making 2 red and aqua sampler quilts for my daughters doll beds. I love these! Great inspiration- I think I will dig up my Vintage Modern scraps, too!

  6. This colour palette is just gorgeous. How many different fabrics of each colour did you use?
