Farmers Wife Quilt

A few years back my mom, Kathleen gave my grandma the Farmers Wife quilt book for Christmas. My grandma is a fantastic seamstress and we thought it would be fun for her to make 100+ Farmers Wife quilt blocks.
 Along with the book she gave her a few fat quarters, but, this quilt also became a great stash-buster quilt. I'm so proud of my grandma for making this quilt. There are so many tiny pieces and she did a great job!
I custom machine quilted it for her, she has no idea that it's done, I've popped it in the mail and I can't wait to her the surprise when she receives it back! :)

Hope you're all having a great day!

  6. Amazing to me when I see one of these magnificent quilts, how one an keep the whole deal straight in ones mind and ones workspace. I love this and your Grandmother deserves a HUGE HUG !~! Give her one for me please. My Grandmas didn't quilt like that to my knowledge. Altho Grandma Tiffany died while I was young and i do remember a quilt in my childhood. Wonder if she made it for me ?~!
