1930’s Farmer’s Wife Quilt finished!

I put all my finished blocks into the layout I wanted.  Then I moved things around until I thought everything looked the best.

These setting triangles required some math ( that didn’t quite work out because I added the sashing dimensions to each block).  They ended up larger than I needed and so it was easy to just cut a little off.

Then it was just the tedious task of sewing the rows all together.

You can see I laid out my border fabrics to see how all the different colors would look together.

I had this sweet lavender fabric that I originally wanted to use for my smaller border but after laying everything out, I realized there was a lot of yellow in the quilt and a different yellow fabric seemed to pull the whole thing together.

The quilt came out looking very feminine and summer-y with all the pastels.  It now measures at 72 inches x 91 inches.

It was so much fun to make but now I have to decide if I’ll hand quilt it or have it machine quilted.

  1. I love it. It turned out beautifully. I was thinking of you last week and looking back at some of your old posts. I was tempted by a Jen Kingwell and debating if I should buy “My Small World” or “Long Time Gone” or let them pass!

  2. ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!!! Your quilts get more beautiful with each one. Your quilting skills totally amaze me!!! You truly have a gift!!! Since it’s a heritage theme quilt, I would probably hand quilt it. Just my two cents.
