Check out this give away of some fun Dr. Seuss Fabrics. See the Give away here.
I hope to get back to working on my Farmers Wife quilt blocks this week. I have all the blocks sewn and am ready to attach the Sun Bonnet Sue blocks in the black area. I cannot decided if I should had stitch them down or machine stitch them down. I am leaning towards the hand work even though I have tons of hand work going right now. After putting the block together I recounted where we are at and I have 13 Sun Bonnet Sue blocks left. I stop over and had Pat the lady I am making this quilt for check it out. She paying for the fabric and I am putting it all together free for her.
If I take one of the Sun Bonnet Sue’s out of this first top we could put a picture of her mother in once square and then there are enough blocks to do a second quilt and putting a picture of her mother in that quilt too. Since she has a son and daughter she could then in time have a quilt for each of her children or she has 2 granddaughters and a grandson that maybe these quilts could then go to them. The jury is out yet but I think that would be a wonderful plan.
She is so happy with how the quilt is looking so we are moving forward in a very positive way on this project.
