Quilt Alongs....

HI Everyone,

I know you haven't heard much from me this week.
I started a quilt along with my Modern Quilt Guild I showed you a couple of the blocks on Saturday. Above are some of the fabrics cut out to make my next two blocks... the "B" blocks. Below are all four of the "A" blocks that I have made.
The top ones are "Alaska Homestead" the bottom ones are "Algonquin Charm". I have a special love for anything that is a variation of a Churn Dash or a Farmer's Daughter block... these both fit the bill.

I so want to start the Farmer's Wife Quilt Along but I am just too afraid that I am so far behind. Maybe I will do it anyway.

Have you started any new quilt alongs lately?

Come back tomorrow for Friday Fun Day and the newest Giveaway (I promise you don't want to miss this one.)

  1. No new quilt alongs since I'm doing both Birdie Stitches and Embroidery 101. Farmer's Wife is tempting me though.

  2. I love your blocks!! I was thinking about doing the Farmer's Wife Quilt Along too. I bought the book, but I haven't started yet.

  3. I just got my book in the mail yesterday and printed off the templates for the first 8 blocks I want to make. I'm 6 or 7 weeks behind, whatever the blogger QAL is on - but I don't mind. Its def. a "do whenever you want" type of project - so start now, start later, whatever :) I'll be starting this weekend with luck.

  5. I've had the Farmer's Wife book for over a year. I just can't decide what fabric to use!

  8. I'm currently in the middle of one quilt a long. And I am going to tackle another one but I am already behind on that one. and also another one which is done and gone now but I am a later starter. I need to build up my scrap stash before I can do that one.
