Farmer's Wife Quilt: Part 2

When I got home today it was raining so quilt pictures would have to wait for another day.  I got on the torture cycle and was half way through when the sun came out.  I hopped off the bike to see that it was raining through the sunshine.  Drat.  Not only did I have to get back on the torture cycle but I still couldn't take the pictures I wanted.  After doing my time on the bike, the rain had stopped so Husband, the dog and I grabbed the quilt and pinned it up on the clothesline really quickly before the rain started again.

So here it is again.  In full glory on the clothesline.  The carport shots from yesterday just didn't do it justice but I so wanted to share!  We didn't pay any attention to right side up or not because it really doesn't have a right side up.  It's all good.  10 months of quilting work all bundled up and hung on the line.  It feels good.  Really good!

Linking up with Amanda Jean for Finish it Up Friday.  Full quilt details available on yesterday's post.

  7. Your finished quilt is beautiful. I have a question about your quilting: did you just quilt round the individual blocks or did you do more than just that? I love the way itlooks and that the blocks are untouched...

  8. A beautiful heirloom. Yo should be proud!

  9. I am VERY inspired. I have a farmer's wife quilt I am making for my mom in her colours, country (all Kansas Troubles). I want one for myself now in colours like yours!!
