Spring has sprung and the vegetable garden is looking GREAT! My fabulous farmer hubby has all kinds of goodies growing – tomatoes, potatoes, strawberries, squash, radishes, lettuce, peppers, asparagus, onions, garlic and lots of different herbs.
Since it looks like a real “farm” I decided this farmer’s wife needs to get back to the Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt. The challenge is to make two blocks a week from The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt book (by Laurie Aaron Hird). There is a wonderful Farmer’s Wife Quilt Along Group on Flickr with lots of support, encouragement and pictures.
I picked back up with Block 44 – Gentleman’s Fancy – here pictured among the tomato plants (yes, it is April and we already have good sized tomatoes – amazing!).
Next is Block 45 – Grape Basket. It is photographed in the potato plants (no, we don’t usually have a tomato cage in the potato plants ).
And then I had to get both blocks in the strawberries:
The fabric I chose for this project is primarily Aunt Grace and is so bright and cheery that it feels like the perfect project to celebrate a beautiful and bountiful Spring.
