Farmer's Wife QAL Week 1

 There's a new QAL out there in blog/twitter land!  It was started by the wonderful Amanda at PorkChop Quilts and Angela at Fussy Cut  And I jumped on board for this one!  I love sampler quilts and I love the history behind them.  What I don't love is the fabric.  So of course I'm making this in fun, modern prints.  I am going to use what I can find out of my stash and I am going to match the colors to the original then sashed in white.

The quilt along will be doing 2 blocks a week, totally doable!  I'm going in order of the book, so here are my first two blocs.
Block 1: Attic Windows
Fabric Used: some Amy Butler Soul Blossoms, DS Quilts, and the blue and green came from a scrap pack (I think they are Tina Givens)


Block 2: Autumn Tints
Fabric: DS Quilts, Bliss and some random scraps.  I hate how I cut the green squares not straight, I might redo those! 

And if you want to see everyone's blocks check out the Flickr group!

I really want to do this QAL too! Where did you get the book? Did you find it in one of the local stores?
