Two new quilts!

Here you go - photos of two new quilts! The first I've mentioned before. It's the first block in my Farmer's Wife Sampler quilt, which I'm stitching along with Nic. We're doing one block each weekend, though I think we both finished yesterday's block and promptly wanted to do a second one!

We're doing them alphabetically and both hand piecing. Mine is just finger pressed at the moment, but here it is with this morning's cup of tea.


The largest triangles are cut from a single charm square - a perfect size. I quite liked the way they look a bit different to each other.

The second quilt is complete madness. I present my first few puffs for The Beekeeper's Quilt


I said it was madness didn't I?

  1. I love the first block to farmers wife. Pretty colours. Can I ask you a really thick question? As a non quilter does hand piecing mean that you stitch it together by hand rather than machine or is it something else?

  2. Beautiful block. We've got some of the same colours in the block too :)
    I'm leaving all mine finger pressed until the end.
