week 28 - FWQAL

Hi there!  I hope you had a nice weekend.  We spent most of ours home sick.  Not the best thing ever, but we got through it.  Yesterday we all felt much better, and today I'm glad to say that we are back to normal.  I meant to post these blocks earlier, but blogging while sick is just no fun.  But sock knitting while sick, now that is another story!

So here are my most recent FW blocks.  I actually sewed them way back in December, right before we decided to take our farming break.

Thanks so much for all of the kind comments on my last post about my 53 FW blocks, and on flickr too.  I am really proud of these blocks.  It has been quite the journey so far; I've learned a lot and have really been challenged.

Hope you have a great Monday!
xo, Angela

  5. Love the little gnome! He is soooo cute! :-)

  6. Nice job. I'm down to the last seven blocks, and I'm getting excited but sorry to see this end.

  7. Very nice! I'm thinking about buying club book and starting a quilt. I've read some pretty bad reviews on Amazon, mostly having to do with the patterns not being the correct size and no measurements. Have you had any problems with this? Do you have to calculate the size of each block/piece as you go?

    Thanks for sharing your work! Great job!!

  8. I am only on Block #15, for those of us who just got on the bandwagon, we are featuring the blocks at the virtual Friday Night Block party. I'm using scraps but I love your fussy cutting. It looks so well, intentional : ) great job!
