In Love!

Have you ever made a quilt that you love so much that every time you see it you just have to smile and giggle because you made that quilt?
This is mine!

The Farmer's Wife Quilt

First allow me to say I never would have been able to accomplish this quilt without the wonderful

Her classes were essential to my success. It is not too late for you to make a Farmer's Wife Quilt. You can find all the information you need on Karen's Blog

OK, Picture heavy, sorry, no actually I am not sorry!

Had to get outside as we are expecting snow tonight or tomorrow!











 This is how I quilted the border. I am not sure it is sowing in the picture.





 I am going to use this girl all the time!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I hope you do something you love.

  9. I can safely say that I didn't get overloaded with pictures. It is truly a gorgeous quilt. Love your pink border, too. Do you hand-quilt all your quilts? Do you use a frame? I'm very close to beginning my Farmer's Wife - yep, I joined Karen's Facebook group - my first. Your quilt has really made me feel antsy about getting 'this show on the road'!!

  13. Good morning Jane....This is such a comfy,cozy and old fashioned pretty quilt, and I can understand your attachment to it. It just says "come crawl under me and I will keep you nice and toasty". It doesn't look as if we got any snow overnight, but is supposed to start around now and continue till around 3 this afternoon. I don't know where in IL you are, but we are in Yorkville and it hasn't begun yet. lv2bquilting2@comcast.net

  14. Rosemary B here
    So adorable. Did you hand quilt it?
    It is big and cute. One day I wil finish a quilt for me.
    I hope you are snuggling under your quilt right now looking at that snow.... are there teen agers roaming the neighborhood looking for driveways to shovel?

    ......Gosh that is a beautiful blankie
