So okay I have been contemplating what to do with my beautiful stash of Flea Market Fancy. It has been sitting in a box languishing since I bought it way back in March of 2012! Just couldn't cut into it nor did I have a quilt pattern in mind for it.
We'll today I have cut into it!
A friend of mine has been teaching how to do the Farmers Wife quilt
without all those xxxxx templates. She has her lessons set up on Craftsy.
Karen I blame you for yet another project! She is a super talented longarmer I might add!
Anyway I bought the book at Amazon....and had it spiral bound at Office Depot
so it would lay nice and flat, and today I started my class one blocks.
I decided to use white Kona here and there in it, so went to JoAnns' yesterday hoping to find it there. They hardly ever have it I might add. The saleslady was just taking the plastic off a fresh bolt so I quickly snatched it up and bought the whole bolt! I just love the feel of the Kona cotton. it sews so nicely and a lot of my internet buddies ask for it in the swap blocks that I make for them.
So far these are my blocks and this is so fun!
