Well, it's time to dust off the old Beeswax blog and get busy on the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt class. I am leading three sessions of students creating this quilt at Main Street Quilt Company in Shelbyville, Ill.
This beautiful queen-sized quilt features 111 6 1/2" (unfinished) blocks. Our fabric choices are Miniatures by Windham and Arnold's Attic by Barbara Brackman for Moda. We'll be meeting once a month for 18 months. We're going to need all the help and support we can get. Soooo - I've decided to keep my blog up-to-date with photos of our blocks and other encouragement.
I know my Friday night class is already busy working on their first six blocks! This Saturday I'll be meeting the ladies in the other two sessions and getting to know them. I've been looking forward to this class since I purchased the book about a year ago. I knew then that I would be doing this quilt in pinks and browns. Indeed, I am focusing my efforts on the Miniatures fabric.
You can visit the Farmer's Wife Blog kept by book author Laurie Hird here. She's already busy completing and promoting a new quilt book.
Below are the first blocks, in Miniatures fabric and in Arnold's Attic.
