Main Quilting with friends. If you've had your eyeballs open around blogland lately you will have noticed that everyone is ing in The Farmer's Wife Quilt Along. She's quite alluring, that saucy farmer's wife. And with all of the gorgeous blocks everyone has been making, I couldn't stop myself from ing. Not that I really wanted to stop myself. Sure, I have plenty of partially made quilts The nerds wife really should be finished.
I sure don't, and I'm sure you don't either. So in would ya? You know you want to! I just picked up my book at Borders yesterday. The book comes with a cd for downloading the templates. While perusing flickr I found a wonderful link to download all of the templates by a fabulous gal named Liz. She's combined them all onto 15 s which makes it so convenient.
Thank you so much Liz!! Of course even with Liz's templates you'll need the book for block construction.
The best thing about the book to me is the letters written by 's farmer's wives. They wrote into the magazine answering the question, "Would you want your daughter to marry a farmer? And pretty funny, apparently Jazz music was considered quite inappropriate among the farmer's wives.
Who knew Jazz was the gangsta' rap of ? Well, I went through my stash and pulled some fat quarters. My goal is to use what I have. I really wanted a soft, cheerful, vintage cottage feel to my blocks. It's fun to rediscover fabrics that I forgot I had! Like you chickens! I've only had you punks for about But I'm happy to see you again! I've had some fabrics in bins under my bed so long it's a nice surprise when I open the bin; like someone sent me a gift.
Is it sad that I feel like I'm receiving a gift from an imaginary friend when I rediscover fabrics that I apparently purchased myself years ago? Of course not. I don't know how long it will be before this quilt is finished, it may be a loooong time.
My goal is to just finish a few blocks a week, along with the other quilts I'm working on. No rushing, just thoroughly enjoying the process. Let me know if you're making one too!
I'd love to see your blocks! You can follow this conversation by subscribing to the comment feed for this post.
Oh swoon, this quilt-a-long is getting harder and harder to resist. All the blocks shown have been so adorable! Posted by: Michele July 13, at PM. While I am generally drawn to more modern fabric, I really like the fabrics you are using.

I'm not a er and I don't blog, but I follow lots of quilters who are making this quilt and I enjoy seeing what everyone is doing. So many ideas! Posted by: Rita July 14, at AM.

Now I'll have to tend the home fires while I send you two off to rehab. Naughty, Naughty!
Posted by: Thimbleanna July 14, at AM. I can absolutely relate to every single word of your latest posting. I actually bought my book some time ago and it sat untouched for months. It's been years since I worked with templates, and had a bit of a rough start, but once I discovered St.
Liz on Flickr had put all the templates on one link and only 15 sheets of paper, I was off and running. I've also promised myself to use only fabrics from my stash, and going thru them has been like listening to old songs on the radio!
Each one brings back a memory of all the delicious projects I had planned for every little fat quarter. I'm having so much fun! And all those unfinished projects staring me in the face? Well, they've waited this long, they can wait one more day! By the way, your block and fabric choices are beautiful! Have fun! Ha, The nerds wife do I see?? All these wonderful forgotten fabrics But it seems as they will have a "revival" now and they deserve it. Any advices?? Have a wonderful day, liebe Freundin! Posted by: Sabine July 14, at AM.
I so want to in but until there is a little bit of fudge in the budget I won't be getting the book. It looks really fun though. Oh and I too am a computer nerds wife!
Your blocks look wonderful! And that chicken shirting is to die for!
How cute will that look in your quilt! Posted by: Dawn July 15, at PM. Yes, it is fabul;ous to find fabrics you've forgotten and still love! Not so wonderful to come across those fabrics I've bought and forgotten about for good reason--sometimes I'll pull something out and wonder just who gave this nasty colored fabric?!
But the other day I 'found' a Bali Pop package that hadn't even been opened and it was like opening a bag of candy--yummy. I'm sure your quilt will be fabulous, but no sampler for meI'm more of a quilter than a piecer and I'm sure I'd muck it up. Posted by: Amy July 16, at AM. The nerds wife have such a gift for combining fabrics. I love the vintage look of the block.
I'm sure it will be a gorgeous quilt! It is funny how we rediscover fabrics that we forgot we had Sarah I would like to e-mail you but I can't find your e-mail.
I was wondering if you used quilting thread on your machine to quilt with or is it regular sewing thread. Love your fabrics, you always make some beautiful things.

I have followed your blog for a while now. Please e-mail me and let me know. Thank you from Louisiana. Posted by: Elsie July 24, at PM. I haven't jumped on the bandwagon for the FWQ-- yet, but I have seen many quilting bloggers interpretations of the blocks. I love yours-- and I really have loved all the ones I've seen. Sadly, the Borders bookstore nearby have closed.

I was a big fan-- not necessarily for books, but also for gifts. Enjoy the quilt-along. I have so many UFOs that I can't possibly do it right now--maybe a few years down the line. Have fun with it! Posted by: Elisa July 24, at PM.
