My Farmer's Wife 1930's Quilt
I finished it! It's my version of the Farmer's Wife 1930's Quilt. It's my version because I used 42 blocks and made it my own size. This quilt top measures 64" x 72". It's a very nice lap size which is my favorite size to make. The book included 4 different sizes that could be made. This quilt falls between the crib and twin size.
This is the quilt without the outer border. Not many Farmer's Wife quilts include a border made from the background fabric. I decided I wanted to really outline the blocks and thought the background fabric would be best. I didn't want to introduce another fabric color. I feel the blocks have all the color and should be allowed to shine.
It took a few days to find the border fabric. I really wanted to find a really pretty lavender but my local quilt shops didn't have anything I liked. I found this teal Penny Rose fabric and thought the color was perfect.
I'm so happy to have finished this quilt. The quilt along is ongoing so I feel as though I cheated!! I'm hoping to finish machine quilting my scrap quilt today too! For once, I won't have 4 or 5 projects I'm working on at the same time. I'm going to try and restrain myself and only work on 2-3 projects at a time. Maybe.
