Meanwhile, Down on the Farm

The Farmer’s Wife was a woman’s magazine during the early 1900’s, and The Farmer’s Wife is the name of the current Block of the Month at my local quilt shop.  The blocks are a selection of those published in the magazine and the fabrics are all 1930s reproductions.

These are 6” paper-pieced blocks and they range from simple 9-patch to tear-your-hair-out complicated!  If you are not in love with paper-piecing, maybe you should not make this quilt!!

I have almost four columns done so far – only the fourth one stops at the floor.  This is going to be a Very Big Quilt!

I am loving the fabrics in this project.  And, yeah, I love some of the blocks.  Just not all of them.  Ha!
