Farmin' Fancy

So okay I have been contemplating what to do with my beautiful stash of Flea Market Fancy. It has been sitting in a box languishing since I bought it way back in March of 2012! Just couldn't cut into it nor did I have a quilt pattern in mind for it. 

We'll today I have cut into it!

  These are half yard cuts of lovelies!

A friend of mine has been teaching how to do the Farmers Wife quilt 
without all those xxxxx templates. She has her lessons set up on Craftsy.
Karen I blame you for yet another project! She is a super talented longarmer I might add!

Anyway I bought the book at Amazon....and had it spiral bound at Office Depot 
so it would lay nice and flat, and today I started my class one blocks.

I decided to use white Kona here and there in it, so went to JoAnns' yesterday hoping to find it there. They hardly ever have it I might add. The saleslady was just taking the plastic off a fresh bolt so I quickly snatched it up and bought the whole bolt! I just love the feel of the Kona cotton. it sews so nicely and a lot of my internet buddies ask for it in the swap blocks that I make for them.

So far these are my blocks and this is so fun!


  1. Very nice! I just started doing Tula Pink's City Sampler using mostly DS fabrics! Too fun!

  2. Hi Jeri! w0w!... thanks for the nice blog post! Great! Every time i see another set of blocks out of different fabrics, i want to start another FW quilt. Your fabrics are great!!! Share them on the Facebook Group!
