Wow! Look at this amazing Farmer's Wife Quilt made by Penny.   I love scrappy quilts and I love sampler quilts, so I was delighted when she brought it to Fabadashery Long Arm Quilting to be quilted.  Penny started the quilt as part of Farmer's Wife Quilt Along which as been sweeping the internet since the summer of 2015.  She completed 99 blocks ahead of schedule using the scraps from her stash, including special fabrics which have personal memories.  The combination of colours just have so much exuberance and joy.

When I am brought a quilt with a lot of 'white space' it is usually a candidate for some special custom quilting. After thinking of some quilting ideas, on this occasion I stitched in the ditch of each  Farmer's Wife block, added a frame and then applied the same free-motion pattern to the background, so no computerized patterns on this quilt.

With all the bright, modern fabrics, this fun circular 'filler' quilt pattern worked a treat, without interfering with the stars of the show, which were the pieced blocks. After, getting to know this quilt better, the Farmer's Wife quilt is definitely on my bucket list of quilts to do.
