Farmer's Wife QAL

I really wanted to use 1800s reproduction fabric for this quilt, but Tom just isn't a fan of that fabric. He suggested that I use solids, so I am using various Robert Kaufman Kona solids. There are 111 different blocks in the sampler (which make a queen size quilt). I am going to make the king size quilt which will have 145 blocks (I will be making doubles of 34 blocks). Each block is 6.5 inches unfinished.

The book is much more than just quilting blocks. It includes letters from the 1920s farm wives. These letters are illustrated with the blocks that they inspired for this quilt.
