I got a very nice package in the mail today. I ordered these beauties from the Fat Quarter Shop. I had my daughter-in-law select colors she wanted in a quilt, and I am very excited with what she chose. I am going to use the same pattern I used for the H2H quilt. I can't wait to get started.
I have been doing two of the Farmer's Wife blocks at a time. Here are #1 - #6. They are not in numerical order here. I have to make more with the light fabric. I was inspired for the colors by the leaf fabric in reds, blue, and golds. This was a thrift store shirt, and I am going to be frugal with it so it lasts for the whole quilt. I used the same fabric for the first border around Hokule'a
I added the dark blue to the border to give the center breathing room. I am happy with the way it is coming along. I think the next thing is stars. I think this section will be in the lower right part of the quilt with the next borders only on two sides. Then, I will put one other border around the entire thing. As with everything I make, I reserve the right to change my mind along the way.
Tomorrow is another quilty day.
Joyful quilting, everyone.
