Resistance was futile try as I may - love won out this time.
I'm referring of course to the Farmer's Wife 1930's sew along.
I've been collecting shirtings and 1930's Conversational Shirtings for many years. I want these to be the main theme of my quilt. So I'm pairing them with solid fabrics in colors of sky, fields and rain. To soften the mix I'm adding in a wash of batiks in various shades of pond colors.
Here are my first 2 blocks. I really love the stories tied into them and am trying to have my blocks reflect the sentiments of these Farmer's Wives.
every quilt tells a story...
