Bewitched

The Farmer's Wife Quilt-a-long has taken ahold of me. Because the blocks are so small and because it was designed as a scrappy sampler, I feel freer when sifting through my stash and scraps. Any fabric that I like is fair game. That freedom is overwhelming at times. It can take me a long time and many trials to pick the right mix of fabrics for a block. But, I'm having a blast. This is my second post for the quilt-a-long and I made one extra block to catch up since I should have 6 finished blocks for week three.

I hope to have 3 more to show you next week so I can be all caught up.   Check out the flickr group to see more blocks from a ton of talented quilters.

I love your #16 and #21, the colors look great. I am still patiently waiting for my book to arrive. I went for free shipping so it takes twice as long.

It really is quite liberating to just use what you like. Your blocks are coming together beautifully.

I really like yours. I am staunchly resisting this quilt along, but it's hard one. That text print on the churn dash is great!
