A beautiful Farmer's Wife Quilt

I'm so inspired by Gloria's 1920's Farmer's Wife Sampler quilt!

Her use of colors are wonderful and her added border around each block takes this quilt to new levels.  

Gloria successfully plowed her way through each block using the modern rotary cutting and piecing instructions found in my Etsy Shop
Then, unlike the original quilt layout from the 1920's Farmer's Wife Sampler Book, Gloria added a border around each block.

It's it wonderful??

If you are interested in adding a border around each block, it changes the cutting measurements for the rest of the quilt layout.  

Those cutting measurements are found in the photo below. Thanks to Gloria for sharing these measurements.

Love it Love it LOVE IT!!

Here is a look at the original quilt can see how that extra border in Gloria's quilt, really enhances each block!

If you have always wanted to make this sampler quilt...the instant pdf classes make it so much easier!!

  1. Thank you, Karen and thank you, Gloria. This is a wonderful lay-out and the sashing is wonderful.

  2. I have that book, and hope to make the blocks some day, so thank you for the heads up on the pdfs. That would be very helpful. Her quilt is just gorgeous!
