Welcome to Farm Quilter

Enjoy your stay under the variable skies of Eastern Washington and watch the seasons change, from planting to harvest here on the farm...be sure to wrap up in a quilt during the winter, it's cold!!

Finished Follow the Son

This quilt was the first time I tried multiple curved pieces in a quilt...and only the second time I have pieced curves.  The pattern is called Radiant Suns and is forgiving of piecing errors.  The quilting took an hour per 9" block because I did a different pattern in each of the five pieces that make up the block.  I love the way it turned out.


I changed one quilting pattern in one part of the orange blocks to make them a little different from the green and purple blocks.  I'm so happy to have this one finished.  It will be going into the quilt show here in town the end of April.

I helped do this pattern a while back at the quilt shop. Not an easy pattern to do but very striking. Yours is wonderful and your quilting looks great on it too. Good luck in the show!
