Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt

And so it begins. Some friends and I decided to start our Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt Blocks finally. There's a group that we all joined that's already started last year. So they're on block #60 or something...

We set a goal of 4 blocks a month. There are 111 blocks in all.  Crazy?  I know.  I decided to try this to get back to the basics.  I haven't done many of them and they are definitely out of my comfort zone...I made these last night.  I tried paper piecing for the first time and I love it! It wasn't bad at all.

The fabric I decided to use was my DS Quilts Daisy Mae.  I finished 2 blocks. #1 Attic Windows & #3 Basketweave. I think my layout is backwards on the basketweave block, but that's what I get for sewing at midnight....  I can't wait to show you more.
