I caved…

Have you seen all of the excitement in blogland over the Farmer’s Wife Quilt Along? The hosts are mrsmcporkchop and fussy cut, and here’s the flickr group.
I’m using my stash of Holiday Happy by Monica Solorio-Snow for Lecien (along with some solids to stretch this pretty stack for 111 blocks!). This line came out 2 Christmases ago, and I fell in love with it instantly. I was lucky enough to win the fq bundle from Monica’s blog, Happy Zombie. I’m so excited to finally find just the right project for these pretties!
Some of my favorites:
I’ll post my blocks as I go along, and I’ll try to include tips that I find helpful. If you’re planning on quilting along but have a fear of templates, come back tomorrow because I going to take you through the process that I use for creating templates, prepping them, and cutting the fabric.
Now what do ya say, are you gonna quilt along too? 🙂

  1. I'm laughing here…another quilting blogger caved for the FWQA? And..you are doing it with a fabric line that I love and that I actually have? I might be jumping in myself. Great choice of fabric! 🙂

  2. I'm holding fast in my resolution NOT to take on anything new. I have so many WiPs and other projects that I really want to get to!I'm really enjoying seeing everyone's blocks, though.

  3. Okay, call me the black sheep of blogland but I am not feeling it for this QAL….too busy for me, when people post a bunch or blocks together it all looks like a dog's breakfast, lol! I think the fact that you are adding solids is a really good idea. Go ahead and prove me wrong on this one 🙂

  4. I jumped in just last week…how could I not when all the blocks I've seen look beautiful! A friend sent me the book so what could I do but go for it?! 🙂
