More Farmer's Wife

I don't have much to blog about today, as I slept until noon, yes noon, as I deal with being sick by sleeping -- a lot. I can sleep for 12 to 14 hours at a time, its just my way of dealing with a sick body.

I spent what time I was up sewing the rest of the civil war colorway blocks that I had cut out for my Farmers's Wife quilt. Then I spent some time cutting out 10 blocks from the other colorway, Breath of Avignon for the quilt-a-long that I posted on a few days ago. It begins February 1st and I wanted to get a head start.

My picture today is a BOM I did about two years ago. It is one of my triumphs of the many BOM's I participate in every year. This one was done through one of my local quilt shops, done in a civil war repro colorway, and 16 grid block patterns. I did the quilting, mostly shadowing the patterns in each block.

I have not yet sent any of my quilts out to a long arm quilter....I am selfish in wanting to say the quilt is all my work. Maybe someday???
