Farmer’s Wife Quilt | In Progress

The kids and I are planting the garden today! Woohoo!!

So maybe next week, we’ll have some pics to share of that. In the meantime, I thought I would share a picture of where I’m at in my farmer’s wife quilt.

It’s a quilt made up of 111 blocks that are 6 inches each. Yes, I have a long ways to go 🙂 You can follow my progress here.

Here are my first 42 blocks:

But quilting and working with my hands is my way of relaxing (so is reading, but that’s another subject for another day). Taking the stress off, if you will.

I’m curious, what do you do to de-stress?

    Your quilt is beautiful! I’ve never learned to sew, but it’s on my “list.” I have a huge quilt that my aunt made for me about 20 years ago — she’s passed away since then, and I’ll always treasure her beautiful gift. You’re creating an heirloom.
    My best de-stressing method is to get outside and be quiet, preferably out in the pasture. Grooming the horses or just watching them graze while the birds sing in the background is very calming. If I can’t get out there, then cleaning or baking will usually do the trick. My husband and older son like it when my “therapy” results in baked goods! 🙂

    • That’s awesome, Kerry. 🙂 I wish I could say that cleaning was one of my therapies. Alas, it’s not. 🙁 I love a clean house, don’t get me wrong, but getting there is not my most favorite thing to do.
      Being out in the pasture is great! There’s just something about green grass and blue skies, huh?

    That is going to be an amazing quilt!

    That is so beautiful! I have dabbled in quilting, but not as detailed as you are doing. I’m going to go check out your website, while I sit here with my lunch. 🙂

    Looking good, Sheri! I like to hand piece and hand quilt to relax, also to read, write and just sit quietly out in nature. We just got six adult hens and two roosters (don’t ask) and it is quite de-stressing to pull up a lawn chair and just watch them do their thing.
