Day 3 giveaway!



Hmmmm!  what shall we do for today?  How about the Farmers Wife quilt book.  We have been working on these blocks at the shop and kind of put it off till after the Holidays.  They are fun and there are loads of groups doing it on the internet.  First off you must be a follower of our blog, you can click at the side of our page and join.  Second, tell me if you have ever done a sampler style quilt.
Good Luck!

Quiltin' Sandy said...

Hi I am one of your followers. Yes, my first quilt was a Sampler quilt. I saw a sign for a class, and went along to learn how to make one. It was done entirely by hand using with cardboard templates, hand peiced and quilted. I still have it 20 years later. I have since made another sampler as well as other quilts. That class was the beginning of a love of quilting for me. :)

Needled Mom said...

Yes, my first quilt was a sampler. I took an adult ed class and that is the best way to show as many techniques as possible. I gave it to my youngest son...it has since had it's binding ripped off, so need to repair it...boys are not gentle on their blankets! That was over 20 yrs ago....
