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!
