Farmers Wife Anyone?

No I am not  branching into matchmaking…

A few months ago I became involved in another long term project. Another I hear you ask?  Yes, I’ll elaborate a bit more on the others another time.  This time I am joining in with other lovely bloggers from around the world and we are making history – figuratively and currently.

This project  is to be a year long and I was asked if I’d like to be involved and I thought it sounded great and would be a wonderful way to get back into some sewing as well as the quilting at the end.

Earlier this year Laurie A Hird released another book call the Farmers Wife 1930 Sampler Quilt.  This is her 3rd book, with the others being the Farmers Wife 1920 and the Farmers Wife Pony Club.

The lovely Angie at Gnomeangel has coordinated this enormous project and has gotten together some amazing ladies to share tutorials and how they are making some of the blocks from this lovely book. I am really happy to be part of the blogging team and will be writing about my journey with this project here.  I’m going to be sharing tutorials for 4 of the blocks from this book. My first will be on the blog tomorrow morning

If you’d like to join in it’s not too late. I will be making some blocks to catch up over the next few weeks and there is a scheduled break over Christmas.
