Farmer's Wife


My progress so far... This will be a king size quilt for my mom and dad. The traditional colors are my mom's style. Kansas Troubles by Moda was a perfect fit. I love making these, they are so fun to put together, like a little puzzle. I've been cutting out the fabrics for the blocks and putting them in little baggies when I have a chunk of time. Then I can pull out a baggy, sew up a block when I have a few minutes. And voila, instant quilty gratification.

Quilts Done, Quilts Doing

Before January, when I did this occasionally, I made 8 quilts.  In 2001, using scraps from flannel pyjamas, I made two charm quilts for my (then 2) boys' bunk beds.  For Christmas gifts in 2002, I made 3 tied quilts from cut up and layered fleece throws.  When my last son was about to be born in 2009, I decided to make him a baby quilt, and another.  And his brother, who would be moving out of his crib, a big boy quilt.
