Have you checked out the flickr group for the Farmer's Wife quilt-a-long? Amazing. As of this morning, there are currently 281 people in our group (WOW!) and the blocks that are popping up are seriously fantastic. Here are just a few, please click on the links to see more detail. In terms of fabric, there is a little bit of everything here: modern, vintage, civil war, repros... Such a great mix!

I am truly thrilled to be hosting this QAL with my friend Amanda, and also to be sewing with so many wonderful people. The community that is quickly forming in our group is so fantastic and supportive, so make sure to check it out if you haven't already. One of my favorite threads in our discussions is the one where people are sharing why they want to sew the Farmer's Wife quilt.
If you are interested in joining in, but don't want to commit to the full 111 blocks, there are other options in the book! One is a 50 blocks version, and there are several women who are doing those.
