Farmer's Wife 1930s QAL

My Name is Kay and I’m a Fabricoholic

This should be a post about making something not a post about buying something, but I have bought something – more fabric. My excuse; I didn’t have anything suitable for the Farmer’s Wife 1930s QAL. Now I have! So no more fabric buying posts after this one for awhile – promise.

Anyway who can resist a sale, this particular one was at http://www.keepsakequilting.co.uk/sale

First up is a selection from Yuko Hasegawa called Everything but the Kitchen Sink which has cute blender fabrics and even cuter prints, love those teddy bears!

The next lot are a mixed bunch and seeing them in ‘person’ it’s clear that, lovely though it is, Sugar Hill Scattered Roses are too bright white to go with the other fabrics. The others are Tula Pink – Pineapple Slices, Joel Dewberry – Botanique, Flea Market Fancy- Flower and Dot and lastly, Cameo Hopscotch

Assorted

The last lot are actually from my stash and not all of them may be included but some look promising

I must confess that the Farmer’s Wife blocks look more fiddly then I thought they would be but QALs should stretch skills and this one certainly will! Best I get started…
