    I have 101...

    I have 101 of them. 101!!!
    No, not dalmations. Can you imagine the cost of dogfood? Or the cleanup? Ok, ok, I digress.

    I have 101 of these: 101.jpg

    THESE are Farmer's Wife blocks. Only 44 more to go and I'll have enough to put it together. Can't wait!

        Idle sewing machines are the devils work! I hope you post pics of the finished quilt. I'm not sure what a Farmers Wife Block is.

              Did you count them twice, just to be sure?

                    Bob, The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt is a book put together by Laurie Aaron Hird, and features a number of letters written by Farmer's Wife subscribers in 1922, and the 111 blocks they inspired Laurie to assemble. We've got a Farmer's Granddaughter QAL over in groups. Come check us out!

                      Karen, I've got a piece of paper where I put a tick mark every time I add one to the stack.

                          Oh Meli, that is so great! I stopped at about 45. I'm to busy right now, making quilts for customers. But once in a while, I take my blocks, and look at them, actually amazed that I did make them. You're going so fast!!

                              Lenie, I don't have any other projects right now, so this is the priority. I need to get these blocks completed, then I have two flimsies to quilt and bind, then I can get back to the assembly of this one. The goal is to have it done by the end of August so I can enter it in the state fair. If I get it done sooner, I might enter it in the county fair as well.
