I couldn't resist any longer!
Like so many of you, I have jumped on the bandwagon and joined the Farmer's Wife Quilt Along.
My friend Lori Holt (Bee In My Bonnet) encouraged me to join her, and once I saw her fabulous tutorials, I was a goner, hook, line and sinker.
Many thanks to Amanda and Angela for starting this Quilt Along!
The blocks are taken from the book The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt by Laurie Aaron Hird.
Amazon.com offers a really good discount.
One of my greatest excitements in joining TFW is learing how to draft patterns from Lori.
I confess, in all my years of quilting, this is a skill I've never developed.
With Lori's turorials, she makes it so simple and easily understood.
I ran right out and got the little notebook and graph paper she recommended.
The only thing that would make this more fun is if we could sit by each other and sew.
Working with her online is the next best thing.
I'm a few weeks late in joining, so there will be some catching up to do.
Yesterday I completed 5 blocks.

Another great motivation for moving this project to the top of the "to-do" list is that it gives me an opportunity to pull from my scrap pile (#1 summer goal).
I haven't picked a color scheme.
It will just be all scrappy.
