Farmer`s Wife in Your Life Challenge





Farmer's Wife in Your Life


I was so happy to be asked by Sunni to participate in her series, Farmer`s Wife in Your Life, which kicked off at the weekend.  
Farmer's Wife in Your Life is a series inspired by The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt by Laurie Aaron Hird. The series will focus on using 6" quilt blocks in everyday sewing projects.  I know many of my bloggy friends have made Farmer`s Wife blocks and perhaps they`ll be able to use some of them in a smaller project inspired by the blog hop!

Here's the schedule.

Inspiration and Tutorials from Designers
Blog Hop
Week 1
March 4-Sunni is guest-posting on Jolly Jabber

Linky Party

Linky Party will be open from March 24-31 with 2 winners announced the next week. You can link up any project that is inspired by The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt and uses between 1-9  6" finished quilt blocks. The blocks do not have to come from the book. 
Please link up a blog post or Flickr photo for your entry.


Judges 

I couldn`t believe it when I saw that the author of The Farmer`s Wife Sampler Quilt had agree to judge the entries - no pressure there then!
