Farmer's Wife in Your Life

I was SO excited Sunni asked me to create something special for her new series Farmer's Wife in Your Life. Inspired by the beautiful Farmer's Wife quilt, this series will give project ideas for people who only want to make a few of the many Farmer's Wife blocks. I can't tell you what I'm going to make yet, but I can assure you: it will be awesome!

Farmer's Wife in Your Life

Farmer's Wife in Your Life is a series inspired by The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt by Laurie Aaron Hird. The series will focus on using 6" quilt blocks in everyday sewing projects. 

It starts with a preview post on Jolly Jabber on March 4th! 

Here's the schedule.
