Several months ago I purchased the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt book and had intended to do a quilt along on my blog but I fell ill and was not able to get it started. So my book has sat dormant for all of this time (along with the fabrics). I happened upon Angela's blog a couple of weeks ago while blog surfing and saw that she and Amanda were hosting this very quilt along! So, I decided to hop on the band wagon with them!
Flickr group where those who are already working on this have posted their photos, and I see some really cool fabric/color combinations! They are already in Week #4!! so I have some catching up to do but I will get there!
Yes, I know, I am going to be one of a few odd balls but I have never been a "sampler" type quilter. "Sampler" as in saying I do not use scraps to make quilts because I like to buy fabrics for each quilt and choose them so they go together well. (I do gift my scraps though so they are not thrown out)
What do you think about the fabrics I have chosen to use for the quilt along? I am excited about my fabric/color combination because I really love 3 color quilts! And what's not to love about a red/black/white quilt! I am going to use the black and white check for pops of color...
How about you? Would you care to join in? Just get your fabrics ready, purchase the book, and off we go!!!
I was just in Alabama for a visit and went into a local gift shop and look what I found!! My plan is to use a recipe out of one of these cookbooks on the days I work on my blocks! I will share a photo of each dish and tell you how yummy it is? May just make you want to go purchase your own cookbooks!
