Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt - Star of Hope

Back at the beginning of 2012, I started the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt. The idea was to do two blocks a week as part of a quilt-along on Flickr. Well, I didn't quite get that far. I think I've made about 40 blocks out of 111. Recently, I decided to start it up again with block 88, called Star of Hope:

I have made this block before, but the fabrics I used don't fit with the other blocks I've made so it needed to be made again. I'm definitely going to use this Frog Prince version somewhere else - I do love that Tula Pink fabric. :)

This is definitely still a long-term project. I'm thinking maybe a block per week? Or maybe one a fortnight if it's a particularly time-consuming block.

Do you have a Farmer's Wife Sampler quilt started? Or completed? If you'd like someone to cheer you on to finish yours, let me know and we can encourage each other.

Bye for now,

Hope x


  1. Your plans to make steady progress sound like a good idea. I really like your new block!

    1. Thank you Karen. In a way I'd like to get it done quickly, but though they're fun to make, contemplating fabric combinations tends to eat up a lot of time - in a very enjoyable way of course - and I do need to work on other things too.
