Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt - revitalised :)

I have rediscovered joy in sewing my Farmer's Wife Sampler quilt - all due to Karen Walker, of Farmer's Wife Quilt Revival fame :)

I came across her lessons on Craftsy, after reading her blog.  I wasn't too keen on paying more money for this quilt, as I had bought the book, and an awful lot of fabric ...  I was beginning to doubt whether I had made a good choice to make this quilt :(

I bit the bullet, and purchased two lessons - US$8.50 which turned out to be A$12 per lesson with the exchange rate at the time - that made it approximately $1 per block instruction :( with 111 blocks, this could turn into an expensive proposition :(

Well, let me tell you, Karen's instructions are great! Following Lesson #1 has revitaslised my interest in the Farmer's Wife Quilt, and brought some joy back to sewing :)  I was really struggling using the templates alone :(
