Farmer's Wife Wrap Up!

Last Saturday was a delightful day.  The women who had followed along on the Farmer's Wife quilt-a-long, all got together to see everyone's project.  Lots of fun, laughter and encouragement was shared by all.

Sonja's quilt is simply stung.  She choose 1930 reproduction fabrics.  The border is pieced cone shapes.  What a treasure.  Unfortunately It was hanging in the window, so it was hard to get a good picture.

JoAnn used scrappy whatever she had, then tied it all together with her blue sashing and cornerstones.  A beautiful quilt made from what she had on hand.

Linda used 1800 reproduction fabric for hers.  I have seen it on her bed where it looks stunning.  It perfectly compliments the decor in her bedroom.

Roxy used batiks and then set them together with dark sashing and light insets.  Wow!

 Betty has great intentions of making two of every block.  With a little encouragement, she will get there.  You GO Betty!

Deanna also used batiks, but used light sashing and darker cornerstones.  What a contrast from Roxy's. Both are stunning, of course!

Carla is well under way with hers.  She has used a Kate Spain fabric with white background and sashing.  A very modern take on Farmer's Wife.  Simply smashing!

Last of all, my quilt.  I am so pleased with how it turned out.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the quilt-a-long, and thanks to the women who came out Saturday to cheer us all on!  The quilts will be hanging at Katja's till tomorrow afternoon so hurry on out and check them out.
