Farmer’s Wife QAL

FWQAL 019

progress on the farm!  I made 3 blocks today and settled on a layout.  I like the alternating on point and squared as seen in the flickr group here and here.  and I’m so so happy to be only 8 blocks away from having my Farmer’s Wife blocks completed.  so my first sampler quilt, and first quilt-along quilt will be 49 blocks (not the 111) but I’m ready to be done with these little 6 inch blocks and happy with the quilt this will give me.  It’s been a fun and educational quilt-along, but I’m glad to be near the end.  It was, after all, started a year ago… 

here then are my new FWQAL blocks:

#48 Homeward Bound, #54 Kitchen Woodbox, #56 Maple Leaf

…and now my thoughts are wandering to possible fabrics for the background…  wouldn’t the non-quilters of the world be surprised to know how much of the time we are thinking about fabric?!  :-)
