Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt ~ one more block finished

After the paper-piecing fiasco with block 1, Attic Windows, I decided to hand-piece the rest of the 111 blocks.

(fabrics ~ Denyse Schmidt’s Hope Valley)

So fare I’ve pieced #2, Autumn Tints.

And #54, Kitchen Woodbox.

#26 Cut Glass Dish and #24 Country Path are all cut out ready for me to piece.

  1. Oh my goodness! Those are beautiful – and hand pieced! I am the slowest ever! What are your tips for finishing a monstrous project? Shall I make myself do it while I watch tv at night? :)

  2. Looking good. Hand piecing 111 more blocks – are you sure that’s a good idea?

    These are beautiful! I love the colors!!!!! I like hand piecing much of the time because it is so therapeutic–mental help :) Wonderful work!!!

  4. So fun!! That was a GREAT fabric collection choice for this quilt!!

    Actually, as with Dear Jane, I know of far more people who are handpiecing this than machine piecing. ;-)

    Your blocks are turning out great! Can’t wait to work on more of mine in FL.
