Farmer's Wife Baby Quilt--Finished

This little quilt has been basted for a few months just sitting on the pile.  There was no rush to finish it so other projects took priority.  Just two days before Christmas, after all the gifts were finished and while the twins were napping (a rarity around here now days), I decided to pull this quilt out and finish it up.  I love quilting baby quilts.  I had it done in less time than it took Miss C to watch Cinderella.





The quilt is made entirely from the Bliss line from Moda.  I now regret this a bit as I look at the quilt.  There just isn't enough contrast to let the blocks really pop.  It was great practice, but I'm really glad I stopped at 18 blocks and made this into a baby quilt instead of a twin like I originally planned.  I'd like to try another sampler in the coming year, but will definitely go scrappy next time.

The back is flannel from the Bliss line as well.  Final size is about 42" x 52".

  4. I love this...fabulous idea for FW blocks too. I have lost steam on my FW sewalong and maybe because my colors don't pop enough either. The sashing and setting you did really make this quilt, it is sweet :)

  6. It's very restful, and sometimes that's what's needed. The wives look comfortable and friendly, not competitive and over-dressed!
