Its Done! - My Farmer's Wife Quilt

**Edited to add this picture 2-26-12**


I started this quilt in July 2011 and 8 months later it's done.
Finally!!!
My Farmer's Wife Quilt

I did all of it.
The cutting (so much cutting!), the piecing and the quilting.
It is 72 blocks total. 
I planned on making all 111 blocks but I just couldn't do it.

The fabric is mainly Sunkissed from Sweetwater
but also some Flea Market Fancy
and Denyse Schmidt's new line called Aunt Edna
and other misc fabrics that I mixed in.

I alternated the blocks between a
square and diamond shape after seeing this one,
loved that idea.



So glad it is finished.
It is very hard to get a good picture of it by myself.
Hopefully I will get a better one soon!

It's gorgeous, Kristin! I love the plaid binding. And I think the alternating square/diamond layout is perfect. Can't wait to see the whole thing :)

its really lovely, and I love the setting out of the blocks. I am doing this setting too but king size, i really like your color/fabric choices...and the binding looks fab.

Ahhh! Wonderful! I've stalled on mine, but this was the inspiration I needed, thank you! I love the Aunt Edna prints you put in there, I may have to go back to Joann's today. I love that you didn't make all 111 blocks, that was intimidating me a little bit. I love the tag you included too, that's so clever! Love it, such a happy beautiful quilt!
