Farmer’s Wife Quilt-A-Long
I didn’t resist for a minute. Didn’t even think about fighting it. When I saw that Angela of Fussy Cut and Amanda of msmcporkchopquilts were starting a Farmer’s Wife Quilt-A-Long, I jumped over to Amazon and ordered the book.
A couple weeks ago I was brainstorming ideas for a quilt starting with black & white prints and then adding one color to each block. Multiple prints, depending on the block, but staying generally monochromatic. So when I decided to join in, color was an easy decision. Especially since the blocks for the Farmer’s Wife quilt are 6-inch. One hundred and eleven of them, I’ll grant you, but only 6-inches each.
The QAL is based on two blocks a week over the next year, and it officially started last week (yep, I’m starting out a bit behind!) Rather than waiting patiently for the book to arrive, I thought I’d take a look at some the blocks that are showing up in the Flickr group and get started.
As much as possible, I plan to pull the print fabrics from my scrap jars. I may need to add to my black & white prints, but I have plenty to work with to start.
I’m all caught up now.
