Who can resist?

It seems that every quilt blogger is caught up in the Farmer's Wife Quiltalong that is sweeping the globe.  And I'm happy to say that I am no exception.

While I wait for my copy of the book to arrive from Amazon I've jumped right in and started with simple blocks that can be rotary cut and whipped up lickety-split.  

FW mosaic

These blocks are all on a 4 x 4 grid (is that 16 patch?) so the little triangles and squares all share the same measurements.  

When my book arrives I'll tackle some of the trickier blocks.  

Without the book I've been getting along just fine by using some of the great resources on the Yahoo group for this quilt. If you are making this quilt and haven't joined you should.

Freshly pieced You can see what other quilters have in progress over at Freshly Pieced. Maybe next week I'll be brave enough to post a full inventory of all those half completed projects.

You can also see the myriad of other blocks that have been made for the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt on Flickr.



I love your blocks, looking forward to seeing more, will you stick with red for all of them?


Your fabric choices for this are great. Very subtle but enough valur contrast to make them very interesting. Lovely!


Wow! They're so clean and crisp. The red is beautiful with the white, so the design is nicely highlighted. Well done!


Love the colors you choose for your FWQA. Your blocks look perfect. I have resisted so far as I've got too many on my WIP list. :)


love your blocks!! i'm hoping to start mine next week. :)


so elegant and calming...what an awesome thing to be able to get this far without the book...kudos!


Those are so pretty!


Just got my book, and of course, now I'm heading out of town for a few days. Your blocks are beautiful! I love your fabric choices, I'm still not sure if I want to go scrappy or choose a real color palette. Thanks for mentioning the yahoo group, I'm going to check it out!


It's so fun seeing everyone's farmer's wife blocks! Yours look great :)
