I’ve taken the plunge and started a “journey quilt”. I’ve long admired the Dear Jane, the Dutch Treat, the Nearly Insane, Sylvia’s Bridal, and I know there’s more. I’ve always told myself “NO!” The Farmer’s Wife Sampler by Laurie Aaron Hird seems a little more doable, however. Plus I won that terrific tower of fabric from Vicky a while back, and I knew it would be just perfect! So Fridays are now FWS progress report days. Two blocks to show (Shooting Star and Checkerboard):
They really are the same size. I don’t know why I saved them different sizes.
I joined the FWS Yahoo! group, and they are doing a Block of the Week (BOW). I’m going to do the BOW, and then try to do at least one extra per week to try to catch up. Love the blocks done in Vicki’s fabrics. These blocks will be challenging but rewarding. And they’re 6″ blocks. Very doable!
