My Farmer's Wife Quilt is finally finished. Started in June of 2013. See my first post here. This is the first quilt that has taken me this long.
I still need to block it. It's been through the wash 2 times already with oxi clean and color catchers and there is one spot still on the aqua color inner border. This was the first and only time I will ever make a quilt using paper templates. It was a lesson in patience. I spent a lot of time on the blocks so when it came to the border I could have just slapped on a plain border but figured I should spend as much energy into the border as I did to the inside. It's a simple raw edge applique using the button hole stitch around the applique. I gridded the background of the border using the checks in the fabric. Each block is quilted differently.
I love it. I love the colors and I love that I used aqua for the sashing.
