Farmer’s Wife & Joseph’s Coat


Progress on two quilts – well actually 3 I have worked on Star Crazy too but no photos on that one – still the same area that I am working on there.  I did put in an hour of quilting last night.

Farmer’s Wife, I know I said this was going to be my quilt group project to have on hand for quilting but I decided of course to quilt on it when I feel like it also Smile I never last with whatever I say on quilts do I?

The area that is quilted is in this area.


Always hard to see in the photo that covers a large area, individual blocks – all the white blocks have the same stenciled flower – there are two or three of these finished.



I have never been able to figure out this block – what is it? a butterfly maybe?




Yes a couple points got chopped off – I’m not worried about it so don’t you be either!


A little of springtime in my kitchen – springtime  LOL, well we had nice weather for all of January, now for the next  4 or 5 days it is winter, in the 30’s and 40’s, maybe a little ice or snow by Monday I think – it will be short lasting – Tuesday will be in the 50’s the forecasters say.  That is where the stackable teapot set that my daughter got me for Christmas stays when I am not using it.


The newest row of Joseph’s Coat laid out on the floor before I start to pin together segments to make it easier to work on.


The whole thing, I had to finally drag the coffee table out of the way so I could work around it.


A close up of the two new colors – I didn’t have enough for the whole row in either color so they are sharing this row.  I had to do that with some of the other colors so it will work out ok in the end.

    To be frankly, I didn’t like the black frame one at first. BUT, it is SOOOOOO nice and elegant from the pictures you posted today!!!!!!!! Really beautiful!!!

    Goodness, you’ve come a long way on the Farmer’s wife quilting. I like your Joseph’s Coat more each time I see it.

    I think I have missed some posts… didn’t know you’ve done that much on FW’s. Are you making all the FW’s blocks from the book? I love what you said about the points – lol! That happens sometimes, doesn’t it? 🙂 Lovely tulips, sign of spring! Two different shades of colors in the same row won’t be that visible when the quilt is done. I was wondering, are you adding borders to JC’s?

    Beautiful quilting on the Farmer’s Wife! Really like the flower motif in the plain blocks.

    So fun to see the Joseph’s Coat grow. 🙂
