  24. My mouth is hanging open. But only in admiration! I've seen lots of people working on these Farmer's Wife Blocks, but you are the FIRST to put them all together so we can oooh and aaaah over how the quilt top looks. And it's a stunner! Congratulations on a beautiful creation. I can't believe you are letting it out of your hands, and will look forward to reading the whole story.
