Geraldine contacted me to work on this incredible Farmer's Wife quilt. She had seen some of my work on Instagram and wanted to work with me. I was so flattered and totally up for this one!
The colours in this quilt are stunning and would be a welcome addition to my Great Room. ha!
This quilt was meticulously pieced. There are 111 unique blocks in this quilt.
Here are sampling of some of the blocks:
I wanted to quilt them in a way that would showcase the piecing of the blocks - some areas quilted more heavily than others - allowing designs to pop.
The black sashing was quilted with ribbon candy design, allowing the centre red squares to pop.
I know....a ton of eye candy right?
I have to admit that about 3/4 of the way through the blocks my new mantra was 'Just Keep Swimming' - Dory's song.. ha!
The setting triangles are a simple triangle echo with figure 8 fill. The outer border I wanted to keep simple and quilted a beadboard design to keep the focus on the blocks.
The backing showcased a lot of the quilting as well....
