Sneak Peek- Farmer's Wife Blocks

These are the first 10 Blocks of the FARMER'S Wife Quilt.
Mary C. came out to cut out her blocks in preparation for the Small Groups meetings at Thread and Bolts next week. After Quilt Guild we now have 18 Quilter's who want to make this fun quilt. More Marti Michell templates and Farmer's Wife Books are on order and should be delivered by Monday, UPS and FED EX are working hard for us.

These are all fairly easy Blocks based on the 9-patch so they can be assembled quickly. Mary cut them out with the Marti Michell Templates and couldn't go to sleep Wednesday night until they were all sewn. Lynn and Mary C. have a few TIPS and tricks to making it easier to follow the book using Marti Michell's Perfect Patchwork Templates.

They are Top to Bottom L-R:
#9-Box, #16-Calico Puzzle, #21-Contrary Wife, #23-Country Farm, #41-Friendship Star, #69-Practical Orchard, #70-Prairie Queen, #72 Railroad, #81-Snowball, and #84 Spool.

Mary C. will have her camera ready on Tuesday to show some of the other color ways that these blocks/quilt will be made in.
