For those who don't speak e-quiltese, the translation of my post title is "Farmer's Wife Quilt-along Fever." And it's contagious!
The blocks are so wee and cute and quick...they almost sew themselves!
So in the tiny corners of my day I made "Calico Puzzle":
I took a stab at "Basket" -- but since I am flying blind (my book has not yet arrived!), I didn't quite know what to do about appliqueing the basket handle. (That poor little bias strip is just sitting on the sidelines, waiting for me to figure things out.) I'm now thinking that I probably should have done that step before assembling the block, but for the time being I'm just going to put this aside -- at least until I have some guidance from The Book (or from my helpful friends in cyberspace!).
Finally, I just made my absolute favourite FWQAL block to date, simply called "Box" -- and I had to photograph it before the light disappeared altogether (so it's not even trimmed yet):
This block combines two aesthetics I love, but which I didn't expect to mesh well: the wildness of Kaffe Fassett prints and simplicity of vinatge feedsacks (the yellow and white print is a reproduction feedsack by Glenna Hailey for Maywood). I know this combo won't be to everyone's taste, but I like it -- and I'm going to make it my goal in this sampler to (finally) use up the 1/2 yard of this Kaffe Fassett print.
I think I like where this is going!
