Let's have some fun! See details at end of post!

The children were nestled all snug in their beds...


 The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...

In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there...

Oh how i love all the decorations!
Susan made the Poppa's Tree Farm quilt above, Cheryl made the sweet stockings and this little house scene is warming my parent's home.

Here's a close up of Susan's quilt...i love the small red and green dots in her background fabric.  Get the pattern here

How much fabric do i need to make the Farmer's Wife Sampler quilt?

Many quilters ask this question of me...How much fabric will i need?  Since this is a scrappy quilt, it's hard to pin down the exact amounts for all 111 blocks. 


I created the pdf (below) where I share thoughts on
'my questimated' fabric requirements as well as what type of pre-cuts may or may not work.  
I think you should be able to download this pdf and print it off if you like.  If not, join our Farmer's Wife Facebook group...you'll find it under the files tab.

Place your curser in the top right hand corner of the pdf insert below and click on the arrow for a full view (it's 2 pages), or use the bar on the right to scroll down.  Zoom in too!

Don't forget to come back to read more of my informative post!



On another note...
In the back of the Farmer's Wife Sample quilt book by Laurie Aaron Hird, there are fabric requirements for the border, sashing, cornerstones, and setting triangles.  However, most of  those requirements use the same fabric and are lumped together in one large fabric amount.  

In my Farmer's Wife Revival Class 10, i list separate fabric allowances for each, making it easy for quilters to use different fabrics if they choose to do so.

Here's the book i'm talking about.  If you have it, dust it off and take another look.

My Farmer's Wife Quilt Revival Classes use modern rotary cutting and piecing methods!  


The block below called Attic Window is...SUPER EASY!! 

Using my class methods, here's a look at how easy it is!






Seriously...how easy was that?

Don't forget to take a look a the pdf above!  
Happy Farming!

Rebel Junk Vintage Market and Noble Spools


This Ferguson tractor put up with a lot from me today!  Patient, never complained, still and steady.  Thankfully no grease was transferred onto my quilt either!  Such a good tractor.


I love this picture...those pedals.  I would sit on the fender when my dad plowed the fields and stare at them.  

If you'd like a copy of Noble Spools, (printed pattern or pdf download) you'll find both options on My Pattern Page.



Rebel Junk  was in my home town this weekend...I HAD to buy this tree!  Made out of recycled metal and stands about 4 feet tall.

Brought it home, now where to put it?  People who don't get it always ask "where you going to put it?"  Duh, i don't know...I just love it!

My friend Jana surprised me with this lovely wreath and Ooops, that red tool carrier below came home with me from Rebel Junk too.

I came home with one other treasure...but i'll save that for another post.

Happy decorating!
