I’ve started yet another quilting project: the Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt. It’s a pretty amazing book full of stories and 111 different 6 inch quilt blocks. Yes, 111. I’m not as ambitious as you may think and at the moment my goal is to make 80 of them which I plan to put together in a similar fashion to this beautiful quilt. Karyn, of The Workroom fame, proposed that we all do a quilt along starting in January but seeing as I am such a keener I’ve already finished 10 blocks, 8 you can see below.
One I might re do. My issue with this book is that there are separate PDF files for each little square and I have very little interest in printing them one by one. None of them have measurements on them either so for now I am winging everything. Winging like mad and avoiding HST math. Then I have to figure out what colour sashing and who will be recipient. Oh, decisions, decisions. This and I have to finish 3 quilts for Ashley. And my vintage sheet quilt. And the tshirt quilt for Shannon. That can’t be it, surely?
In other news: still no heat here. Seeing as it was snowing in Toronto last night, it is pretty freaking cold inside. My feet were like ice and I had to give up sewing for the day. Boo.
I’m craving roti. Or a giant burrito. Hot, spicy, goopy comfort food.
