can you tell what it is yet?
Yes it's true I am now officially a Farmers Wife!! Now I know I am around two years behind the blogging community, but for me the time is now right and having been terribly indecisive I finally decided to give it a go. I found some amazing tutorials on Lori Holts Blog Bee in my Bonnet that have really helped and so far I am thoroughly enjoying myself! (Incidentally we've got some of Lori's new fabric line Vintage Happy on order, which is just gorgeous!)
I'm making my blocks 6" square and at the moment I'm planning to make the lap size quilt which takes 50 blocks. I'm going to try and use fabrics from my scrap stash and unused bunting triangles and the key criteria is that they must be really, really pretty, as for colours I'm thinking a mix of candy shades...... pink, yellow, blue, aqua, green and mint, with touches of orange, red and brown.
Here's what I've made so far...
|Block No 2 ~ Autumn Tints|
|Block No 4 ~ Basket Weave|
|Block No 16 ~ Calico Puzzle|
|Block No 9 ~ Box|
|Block No 11 ~ Broken Dishes|
|Block No 12 ~ Broken Sugar Bowl|
My plan is to make 2 blocks a week, I think that's achievable.......but I want to enjoy this, so I'm not going to put myself under too much pressure if I fall a little behind. Wish me luck!
