Farmer's Wife QAL - I'm in!

Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July!


So I decided to jump in on the The Farmer's Wife Quilt-A-Long,
 it has been all over the blogs recently.
I got the book on Amazon and it arrived on Saturday.
I decided not to make my blocks in numerical order,
BUT I do have a little system.
I am choosing one block from each letter of the alphabet (from the index)
and will continue through as far as I decide to go.

These are my blocks so far.

Attic Windows

Big Dipper

Contrary Wife

My next block will be Duck and Ducklings.

They are challenging, but that is a good thing.
There are 111 total blocks in this book.
The flickr group has many, many more blocks to look at.
I have tons of Sunkissed fabric from my fat quarter bundle so I have chose those as my main fabrics.  I am adding some other fabrics from my stash to add some interest.

Anyone else out there that joined the Farmer's Wife QAL?

Joined but not yet started! The library needs my book back but I ordered my own copy which should be here today so that makes me happy :)
