I’ve said it many times recently that I want to make the quilt from the Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt book. Well, the book comes with a CD of all the pattern pieces; 1 piece per page. I wanted to print the patterns onto card stock, but didn’t want to use over 100 sheets for all the pattern pieces. So, I moved them all into Photoshop and was able to condense all the pieces into 6 pages. Between doing this and cutting out the pieces was a project all in itself. I now have everything ready to go; patterns cut, fabric picked and I have the book.
I must say that making these squares is kind of addicting. It’s only been two weeks into January and I already have 6 squares done. Granted some of them need a little work to fix. Working with such small pieces is quite difficult. I’m excited to be working on this quilt and am excited to see how it turns out. Only a few more blocks for the month of January.
*update; it’s been 3 weeks and I have 10 squares done. I would add a picture of my finished squares, but I don’t currently have access to them. So stay tuned for some pretty FW (farmers wife) quilt squares.
