the farmer's wife quilt along ....

Its a public holiday in Australia today and we have enjoyed a weekend away at the beach. The fresh air was bliss and we had a fantastic time with two close friends. I have missed quilting in the last two weekends but have found time to think about my next project.

I love reading Angela's blog at Fussy Cut and a few weeks ago she and her friend Amanda started quilt-a-along The Farmer's Wife Quilt-A-Long. It has taken me a good ten days to really think about whether I will be excited about this pattern to persist for the full 12 months. But I have to say that Flickr posts have inspired me! How people are reinventing the colour palate is inspiring. I made a couple of blocks but are not in love with them so its back to the drawing board.

I decided to put some more thought in before launching into making the blocks and feel more comfortable having chosen these fabrics as the base. Don't you love the mittens?

Have a good week everyone.
