Go to this link (copy and paste) and it will take you to the Farmer's Wife Group that Nana has started. She has all the information there. Also, you will need the book if you don't already have it. The group officially starts after the first of the year, a few people just started early, but you have plenty of time to get the book and fabrics together for the official start.
It is really great to see some of the new people joining the group. Some of us have started already but group is suppose to officially start the first of January. SO far this has really been fun ,and the block go really fast,,but so far we just done some of the easier ones ,,Its very exciting to see what everyone does with the blocks and the fabric they've chosen, Come and join us It is really a great project...Barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
Count me in. I have the book and the stash picked out and ready to go. Just need the encouragement to get started. Is this a "by hand" project or is everyone useing their sewing machines?
nagsragatz, I'm machine piecing,so far I think there is only 1` lady doing hand piecing and she is doing them both ways,,We will look for ward to seeing you in the group..Barbara
I am very interested in doing this quilt also. Bought the book last year tho - can I still join the group to do the quilt? also, what date is the updates since I bought the book last year? Jill in CA
Jill, the group offically starts the first of the year ,but some of us got antsy and wanted to start early. I know there are some updated posted on the FWSQ website. You might try there. I also think Kris is going to post some of the updates she has EQ7, but I'm not real sure. Hope you go head and join the group we are aready having a great tine. If you go to groups and check FWSQ and then check Media you can see some of the blocks we antsy ones have made LOL...Barbara
It is so good to see all the new members wanting to join in on this journey. I will continue to post cutting tips as I assign blocks. Also will try to make sure that all the updates are posted. Please go to groups and join in the Farmers Wife Sampler quilt group. I think this is going to be a really fun journey.
Most of us are piecing by machine but there are a couple of people that really like the idea of hand piecing. I personally prefer doing things the quick way.....LOL>

Nana what happened to the SBS group, I can't find it anywhere. I bought the book and would like to try a few blocks to see if I like it and work along with the FWS group at that pace.
Here's the link to the SBS group:

Not sure why you can't see it.

Thanks Liz I was about to write to Nana and tell her I found it on the second page of "Groups". I just need my eyes examined is all. LOL
Glad you found it. We have so many groups now that it takes two pages. And to think we I first joined there were only a few groups. Unbelievable how much we have changed.
