If you haven’t heard of the Farmer’s Wife Quilt before, it is basically a collection of sampler blocks put together in a book along with letters that Farmer’s Wives sent into a farming magazine.
You can construct the blocks a number of ways. There are templates in the book you can photocopy and cut out and the book has cutting and piecing instructions.
Constructing the Blocks
As far as the book itself goes it is gorgeous. It has lovely bright colours and it’s all set out very attractively inside.
Thoughts on the Farmers Wife Quilt Book
If you make all 99 blocks and the accompanying recommended background fabric in half-square triangles to put the blocks on point you will end up with a Queen Size Quilt.
I will say that although I have tried foundation paper piecing before, this is definitely the most complicated foundation paper piecing I’ve done so far.
