Farmers Wife Quilt Sampler

Yes!! I have joined in on the Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt
and I must say I was a bit hesitant at first cause I know
that I am good at starting things but not finishing them, so I thought
it will just end up in the cupboard.

But these are really addictive.


Bat Wing

Big Dipper

Attic Windows

Autumn Tints

Basket Weave

All of them looking pretty together, not
sure if I'm liking the dark brown, but that can be changed later on.

I was orginally going to do these by templates, but gave up on that,
then tried paper piecing, definatley gave that a miss, my blocks were
not coming out the size that they should. Then I discovered
Lori's blog Bee in my Bonnet and I followed a few of her
tutorials on working on graph paper to rotary cut them,
much, much, better.

Now it is much more fun and I'm learning along the way.

Happy Quilting!
