No, no, I'm not that fast of a sewer. The blocks were done (except for 6) but it took me an entire day (and I mean ENTIRE day) to put the top together. The pattern is called "Farmer's Wife" and it was a monthly class I took at my local quilt shop. We met once a month and the assignment was to have 10 blocks made for the next class. The book has 110 block patterns in it. By doing 10 a month, you would have a complete quilt done at the end of the year. I didn't want a king size quilt nor did I want to make that many blocks so I opted for the Lap Size, which is perfect. I only had to do 50 blocks but that was plenty. The blocks are 6 1/2" so it makes for some difficult piecing. There was no room for sloppy piecing in this quilt. And those that were less than perfect fought me when I tried to match them up to a lattice. But overall, I was very happy with the end result. If you are in for a challenge, I would suggest you buy this book and give it a whirl! Or better yet, you can use my book because I won't be making another one soon!!!
Quilting, knitting, sewing... any kind of craft. Couldn't possibly forget wool applique and embroidery either. And did I mention that I like to make purses, totes and organizer bags? That is what I love to do. My greatest joy is making things for my family and friends. I have been a crafter since I was a little girl. I would sit for hours and watch my Mom and Aunts knit, crochet, sew, tat and embroider. They would hand me baskets of scraps and I would sit on the porch and make clothes and blankets for my Barbie dolls. That was many, many years ago. My greatest joy will be when I am able to sit with my grandchildren and teach them all about the wonderful world of crafting!!
