The Farmer’s Wife Quilt-a-Long

I have finally joined in the action on the Farmer’s Wife quilt-a-long! I have spent weeks trawling the flickr group and joining in some of the flickr discussion while I waited for my book to arrive.

I have procrastinated a LOT about joining this QAL, one minute I think there’s no way I have time to make 2 blocks a week for a whole year and then the next minute I’m back on flickr and cannot resist the gorgeous blocks and I get sucked right back in again!

I managed to make 5 blocks yesterday and I chose easy blocks so I could feel like I was making progress. They were even more fun than I thought they would be. I have recently started a bit of stash building so playing around with fabric choices was great fun. Plus it’s so nice making a quilt of only one block of each and not having to churn out loads of the same block.

Here are my first 5 blocks:

Block 1 Attic Windows:

Fabric is From Little Things and Hullabaloo

Block 16 Calico Puzzle:

Fabric is Loulouthi, Kaffe Fassett and I can’t remember what the purple spot is

Block 21 Contrary Wife:

Fabric is Hullabaloo and I can’t remember what the thin blue stripe is

Block 29 Economy:

Fabric is From Little Things and Prince Charming

Block 66 Periwinkle:

Fabric is From Little Things, Loulouthi and Hullabaloo

I think it’s safe to say that I am hooked!
