February’s Farmer’s Wife Blocks
From earlier posts, you know that a group of us at Coastal Quilters (Maine) are spending this year making the 99 Farmer’s Wife blocks from Laurie Aaron Hird’s book, The Farmer’s Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt.
We set of goal of making two blocks a week, or eight a month.
Since February is a short month… OK, since I am addicted now to making these blocks, here are my February blocks. Each block has a woman’s name, and I have only one more “b” name to go.
I am putting on the setting triangles as I go, and I am loving these bright modern fabrics. (Leftovers are going into a hexie project.) Each block, even the so-called “simple” ones, takes a fair amount of time to make.
