Scrap Basket Sunday

I love to use up my scraps and I have a ton of them! As a new quilting blog follower, I have admired many of the Farmer's Wife Sampler quilts. But, I am not a fan of templates, so I certainly did not want to make the blocks by using the templates. This has led me to Lori Holt's block tutorials and to use

I have been following Kim's Big Quilting Adventure and wanted to participate in her Scrap Basket Sunday. Here are the blocks I made today.


  1. I am so checking out that link! A few months ago I purchased the Farmers Wife book,but am not a fan of templates,so it sits on my book shelf...

    Your blocks are very pretty.

    1. Hi CeLynn,

      The Judy Hopkins book is so worth it! I don't plan on making all the 100+ block from the Farmer's Wife Sampler. I am only thinking around 50. Be sure and look at Lori Holt's Bee in My Bonet because her tutorial blocks and blocks in her Barn Along are all 6 inch blocks that could be put in the Farmer's Wife Sampler. I am trying to use up my scraps, but not look too country. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. That is a fantastic idea! I really like your blocks... very fun way to use your scraps. I can't wait to see more!

  3. Ooooooh! Pretty blocks! Are you going to work on the Farmer's Wife type blocks each week? I'll look forward to seeing what develops!
