Heh. I may be from Indiana but my dad was not a farmer. However! That slight flaw will not keep me from creating a Farmer’s Wife quilt. Have you seen these? Talk about gorgeous!
This all came about when my MIL told me she and a couple friends were kicking around the idea. I asked what the rules were. She just looked at me like “what do we need rules for.” There can’t be a quilt along without rules! We all need to be held accountable and if I’m doing it then I may as well make the rules. (Notice there was no actual time between her telling me and my becoming part of the project for her to actually ASK if I wanted to be a part of it?)
At this point I sat down to write the email. We will be making 4 blocks a month which means it’s a 2 year project. Officially the first thing in my life that I have planned 2 years in advance. Heck, babies only take 9 months so this is a big deal.
Here’s my progress so far! They are 16. Calico Puzzle, 21. Contrary Wife, 70. Prairie Queen, and 72. Railroad.
