Blogger's Quilt Festival ~ Spring 2015

Farmer's Wife Quilt

Welcome to my entry in this Spring 2015 Blogger's Quilt Festival.  (And please excuse the far from Spring-y photo!  This quilt was photographed and gifted at Christmas time.)

Farmer's Wife Quilt

All the fabrics in this king size quilt are from Kansas Troubles by Moda and I used the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt book.  I made a few tweaks, adding setting squares and triangles to make the blocks larger, and so setting alternating blocks on point.

Farmer's Wife Quilt

This quilt was made as a gift for my mother and father and took me about 3 years! I really enjoyed putting the blocks together, it was like an interesting puzzle every time. However, I tend to like chain piecing and letting my mind wander, so this took me a long time to do and I didn't alway choose to do it as it was a brain bender and not the meditative calm of chain piecing and simple patterns. (I quilt to relax!)

Then, I quilted this myself on my home machine!  Here is a link to my original post about this quilt if you would like more information.  Enjoy all the rest of the entries in the Blogger's Quilt Festival!  And please consider casting a vote for me here, in the Large Quilts Category!

  3. Absolutely stunning! I've admired the Farmer's Wife quilts circulation the Internet and blog land, but have been apprehensive about tackling those blocks. Your quilt makes me want to just make them anyway. I especially love your color choices and the way you set alternating blocks on point - such a great detail! Your folks must just be over the moon! Great entry!

  5. Beautiful quilt. I really like how you set the blocks - I've never seen one done alternating on point like that. It really adds to the overall look and feel. Great work.

  6. This is a stunning quilt Cora. What a massive effort to piece and quilt - and then to gift it - a very beautiful and generous gesture.

  7. Fabulous! Your parents must be thrilled. I am restarting my Farmer's Wife quilt this summer. I didn't like the direction I originally took with it. Totally clicking the heart on this one.
