Farmer's Wife Finish

I got so distracted last week working on getting caught up on some BOM blocks, that I forgot to show you that I finished my Farmer's Wife Quilt!

Yay! A finish!

This really was a fun Quilt Along to be part of this last year.
I enjoyed making the blocks from my scrap pile, and increased in learning some new quilting techniques.

For the border fabric I decided to use the same fabric as the sashing.
The solid colors allow the bright and busy blocks to do all the talking.

Finished size 61" X 70"
which also fit very nicely over a picnic table.

My thanks:) to Angela (Fussy Cut) and
Amanda (Hey Pork Chop!) for hosting this wonderful
Quilt Along!

It's one of the prettiest Farmer's Wife quilts I've seen. I love the restful grey for the sashing. It perfectly ties everything together. Great job!

I think you are spot on with the sashing and border. The plain color ties it together and makes it all work. Nice nice job.
