Done! Another quilt is finished – what a good feeling to know – although for this one it was a different feeling than normal, it was more like one more out of the way – not a feeling of satisfaction for some reason. When I started making the blocks for the Farmer’s Wife I had found another sampler block quilt that I thought I wanted to make – it quickly turned to boredom though. I have made 3 sampler block quilts – two Dear Jane’s and the Underground Railroad and I think sampler block quilts have turned into burn out for me. No more of these sampler block quilts for me for some time to come.
I am pleased with the way the quilt turned out. I think we all go through phases in our quilting . I couldn’t even make all the blocks in this quilt because of the boredom. I am glad I put the 20 blocks that I made though into this quilt. It finished at 59 inches by 69 inches. I am happy with the 1/2 inch binding.
The crinkly antique look from washing and drying a 100% cotton batting – I do love that look.
The back of the quilt. I need to make a label and it is finished! Oops just noticed my toes got in that photo
It has now taken the top spot on the ottoman.
