I just couldn't say no to a new QAL when I came across The Farmer's Wife QAL led by Angela from Fussy Cut and Amanda from Ms McPorkchop Quilts. My reasons--other than the fact it is being led by two fabulous quilty bloggers--you may ask.
A. I already had access to a copy of the book. Thanks mom!
B. It only requires finishing 2 - 6.5" x 6.5" blocks (out of 111) a week. Totally manageable.
and, C. Because the blocks are so small, it is the perfect stash buster.
It's a win-win situation really! :)
The blocks are all made out of printable templates that come along with the book. But because I was so excited to get started, I jumped around and choose two that I could do with a little math.
Since this is a sampler quilt and I will be using scraps for most of it, I have decided to stick with Kona White as the background for each block to add some "order" to the blocks.
