FARMER'S WIFE SEW ALONG
Several members have expressed interest in participating in a Farmer's Wife Sew-Along. Millissa Masters and Barb Maurer have graciously agreed to co-chair this group. So, hold onto your sewing needle, you're about to have some fun!
HOW MANY CAN BE IN THE GROUP AND WHAT WILL YOU DO?
Millissa and Barb's vision is to gather a group of 18 like-minded individuals to create a fun, interactive format where all participants are part of the planning and presenting of blocks using today's modern, piecing techniques. So, expect to participate by 1) sewing and 2) planning & presenting a block or two.
This quilt is made up of 111, 6 1/2 - inch blocks. The color choices and final layouts vary drastically! The beauty of the Farmer's Wife is the ability to create a quilt in your own style. We have found traditional as well as modern interpretations. All are beautiful!

To join this group, you will need to:
