No I don't know the quilters quilds in Pittsburg, I just do my own thing except for events through Needle in the Haystack. We do a retreat at Flint Oaks which is past Fall River and class at the Haystack. The Farmers Wife Quilt has a total of 111 6" blocks you can make. It uses a lot of Marti Michell templates, which is my favorite. I guess if you can't live in Kansas then Arkansas is just as good. I have friends in different areas of ARK.
I am so sorry that I missed your post back in September, it must have just slipped by. I want to thank you for your nice comment on my quilts. It was very kind of you. I am now making 3 different Farmers Wife quilts by hand. One in civil war materials, on in Kansas troubles, and one in 30's materials. It is a block (about 5-8 blocks) of the month at Needle in the Haystack in Severy Kansas. Since you only do so many blocks each month it is not too hard to do the three different quilts at once. They are only 6" blocks so they do go very fast. Well enough of that. Thanks again for your comment.
