My friend Heidie and I agreed to make our own little Farmers Wife QAL - and to use the same color palette in blue, red and white. Yep, a little out of of my safety zone. No teal, no orange.
I have a feeling that although we use the same pattern and the same coclors, the quilts will come out very differently.
Though dragging my feet at first, I'm becoming more and more excited about the project. I've pulled an eclectic mix of fabrics - modern, 30'ties, Japanese and traditional,Tilda etc. I was quite surprised that I had so many reds. Maybe that's because I rarely use reds?
Now the fabrics are all washed and ironed. I've planned the first eight blocks and made the templates. The rest I will make as I go along. At least 4 small blocks a month, that's doable, right?
