I started this quilt last year, it is machine appliqued. My friend Susannah made this quilt, and I couldn't wait to make one too. It is called the Farmer Quilt - with activities that you might find on the farm.
I still need to do some hand embroidery on some of the blocks - like the clothesline on the block below. It is a lot of fun to work on - the thing that took the longest was picking out the many fabrics for the blocks.
For the background I used several different tans.
Learning in a one-room-school . . .
Taking turns on the swing (when the rope is embroidered)
Checking the corn crop . . .
