FWQAL~Blocks 1~4

I decided on the colors / fabrics for the Farmer's Wife Quilt a Long. It was inspired by a tree I drive by almost everyday. I don't know what kind of tree it is , but it is gorgeous. I want one in my yard one day. Some day I'll stop on the side of the road and take a photo of it. The colors of the tree are light green and gray. But I am adding a hint of orange to the quilt because every quilt needs a hint of orange. :o) Here are the first two blocks. Block one , Attic Windows on the left and block two, Autumn Tints on the right.

Block 3 is called Basket and I haven't added it's little handle yet. ( Hand applique is involved, which I can do, but don't have time right now) Block 4 on the right is called Basket Weave.



Here is what block 3, Basket is supposed to look like once the cute little handle is on.



All 4 blocks together..... green, gray, cream, with a hint of orange.


I'm excited about block 5 ~ Bat Wings. I think it's pretty cute. But I haven't even cut out the templates for this little guy yet.


Happy sewing / stitching

How exciting to start a project like this and play with the fabrics, the colours, the blocks.
I will have to start one myself pretty soon, you are inspiring me!
