Some of us are discussing starting the Farmer's Wife quilt after the first of the year.  If there is enough interest I would be willing to get a group started.   Just let me know if anyone is interested in going on this journey.

Are you talking about the book The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt by Laurie Hird - book with CD?  I was just reading reviews on Amazon and it sounds like a lot of folks are having major problems with working with this book.

What other groups might be coming up? MQ, scrappy, QAYG ,machine embroidery ....what else is up your sleeve? I don't want to bite off more than I can chew which I always do.

Could you post a pic of the quilt again?

Marge,

the book has photos but no written instructions for piecing them. Not beginner friendly but I think we should be able to handle it here if we all work together.

I have the CD that works with EQ7 but not the book. (15.99 at Connecting Threads).  I looked through the book at the LQS I would get it if you want the stories in it.

I would join this group if you started it Nana. It might motivate me to get moving on the SBS blocks or...it may be one more thing I fall behind on.

Let me further add that the author of the book has corrections, an offer for a free replacement CD (the one that comes with the book not the EQ version) and downloads for templates.

What does the EQ CD offer that the cd with the book doesn't?  I just went thru the book I have and everything has already been corrected.  Haven't checked the CD yet.

 Nana - will this be a mystery?  Or just in so many steps knowing how it ends?  I'm just now trying to finish the one from American Quilter -- it is so gorgeous, but it has been a challenge, different than the usual, but that's why it looks so great now that I'm almost done!! And haven't been back yet to the older one from McCall's Quilting, I like that one, too, and will be working on it soon, I hope.  The Bonnie Hunter mystery is one I like too, the Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll (Love that name, too!) First two steps were simple and pretty quick, look out for next week!  Anyway, first of the year is a while off, I'll be ready by then to start another one with you all!!   Thanks!

We set up the sampler quilts like the Sylvia's Bridal Sampler or the Dear Jane quilt as a group where blocks are assigned every week and you work at your own pace.  People give tips and help when someone runs into a block they are having problems with.  Everyone has to have their own pattern book as none of the patterns are posted on line.  The group just gives help and encouragement.  It also seems to help some of us to stay focused if we work as a group.   You can check out the Sylvia's Bridal Sampler group to get some idea of how these groups work.
