The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt). The colorway shown is Americana - and I'm sure the fabric is Thimbleberries, or something like it. This particular BOTM was available in 3 different colorways - Americana, Civil War reproductions, and 1930's reproductions. And, although I am really drawn to 1930's reproduction fabrics, I am currently working on another quilt out of them. How could I possibly work on 2 quilts out of the same fabrics at the same time? Couldn't do it. So I signed up for the red/cream/blue fabrics...
Truth is, I don't love Americana. I have made a red/white/blue quilt. One. Been there, done that. But I now have some fabric that I don't love, and a block pattern to make up in one month's time.
Auditions!! Fabric auditions were held to replace the red and cream. I want to make blue blocks (maybe for a baby quilt for a relative who is expecting).
