There will be a Happy Ending!

The Farmer and his wife have finally got their act quilt top together!

Not without a spot of bother....

(The first option used a more sparsely dotted fabric)

Mr and Mrs Schmidt don't always have the same view of life...




Mr Farmer is a bit of a square, a straight up and down type of guy....




Denyse often sees things from a different (on-)point of view!




But I think they have their act top together...


Even if it is upside down!!


But how will they keep sew it together???


By hand or by machine?


Mr Farmer and Denyse may need to go to counselling to solve that one!

Of course, they would be happy to take advice from neighbours and friends!




They also apologise for the rather poor photos....

They live in a little house and they found it very difficult getting all the top in 

these shots!




And MrPnP didn't want to play!


Happy days!

I love your layout and spotty/dotty sahing fabric. It is going to be such a wonderful quilt. Nice to see someone who has actually got their Farmer's blocks all the way to a pieced front!

Fantastic to see all those farmer's wife blocks put together!! (I am slowly making blocks from the lovely farmer's wife quilt book too). The spotted fabric is a great idea, and the alternate arrangement of the blocks looks great too!
