Ooooh I can see many romance novel blogpost titles in my future ;-)
If you have not heard of the Farmer's Wife Quilt along that's happening over on Flickr you might want to go check it out here It's a virus that's spreading fast through the online community and it's safe to say I got caught.
I lusted after the farmer for weeks waiting for the book to arrive. Finally today I heard the postman struggling to push something through my letterbox followed by a big thump...
So I ran to the copy shop with my Farmer's CD in hand to get all my templates copied. One huge stack of paper later I sat down behind Mr Pfaff to start what I hope will be a hot summer fling for me.
I find it quite fiddly working with templates, it's not something I'm used to. And of course I messed up my first block and squared the whole thing up too small! I'll have to redo this block at one point if. I decide to make the whole quilt because I don't know if I'll commit to this farmer dude just yet....I'll have to see the ring first ;-)
The next block went a little better because I eliminated the need for templates all together and just used my rotary cutter for the triangles.
Squared up correctly this time :-) This is going to be a great learning experience for me I'm so glad I joined in!
