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