Finally got a scanner so I can post the 8 Farmers Wife blocks that I have done so far.

Attic Window
I joined the Farmers Wife quilt along at yahoo groups and the Flicker Quilt along as well and finally can participate like I should. This is block 1 Attic window and if you are familiar with the book "The Farmers Wife" by Laurie Aaron Hird you may notice that I've accidently done the block in mirror image. Luckily, I think it still looks fine and the paper piecing of this block was a challenge. I began this quilt with fabrics from my stash with the idea that it will end up on my king size bed and after several fabric buys I might have enough for a good start. My final purchase was from Hancock's of Paducah was several Barbara Brackman civil war prints. I'm so excited!

So,I got in the car out in some terrible heat to take my cheap self to Walmart and buy a scanner. If it was fabric I'd just buy it but no. I had to agonize over the purchase.

The rest of the blocks.


  1. I was just glancing through your fw blocks and you have done such a great job! Love love your fabric choices. Mine are out of daisies and dots by Robert Kaufman. Totally different than yours but love yours. Thanks for posting. My
    Blocks aren't posted anywhere but I need to figure out how to.

  2. Thank you so much for looking! I took forever to get a blog set up and now I love it. Google's Picassa links with blogger and I can get all my photo's from there after I have mailed them from my iphone. :)
