WIP Wednesday :: Farmer's Wife QAYG

It is time to share my progress on my Farmer's Wife quilt.  The quilt is going to my 8 year old daughter, she claimed it after I made my first few blocks.  The blocks have taught me a lot about precision in piecing, I am sure that I have a more than few mistakes, but I am loving it anyway.

The quilt is getting a twist from the original design.  Each block (35 for a twin size) is getting a border and I am trying out Quilt As You Go (QAYG) for the first time!  

8 Completed Blocks

4 Ready for Quilting

All of my progress together.

Yesterday, I reached out to a group of quilting ladies for some motivation to get cracking on this quilt.  I will have to utilize some of their ideas.  It is time to get working!

In Progress (Current progress in blue)
