Farmer’s Wife QAL: Week 1

It’s never too late to hop in to one of the most fascinating quilt-a-longs! The Farmer’s Wife QAL has been around since 2011 (I think), and has gained thousands of fans. I purchased the book since 2012, but never dared to participate, until now that I have started the YouTube channel.

So, starting this week, I will be posting 2 blocks per week, hoping to finish the sampler quilt in about a year from now.

For my first two blocks, I chose two easy ones, that also come with different names in the quilting terminology. I used foundation paper piecing for both blocks, and even though it is time consuming, I really love the accuracy that this technique gives you. Of course I made a slight mistake on the Big Dipper, but I guess it will be fixed once I piece the whole quilt.

You can watch my tutorials for these two blocks here:

no. 6 Big Dipper
no. 29 Economy

That’s it for today, join me every week for two new blocks, and a monthly wrap up of my progress. It is truly exciting to start this sampler quilt!
