I hope everyone is planning their Christmas holidays as did I this weekend. Today's week starts again with the Farmer's Wife QAL.

For this week's Farmer's Wife QAL, I made these blocks, using foundation paper piecing, Lecien and Riley Blake fabrics.

Lots of guests this weekend at home, and we had a great time, but little time for crafting. As Christmas approaches a rest from everything is needed...even from quilting!

But the Farmer's Wife QAL, cannot wait...I'm on a strict schedule about this quilt-a-long and I intend to follow it! For this week's Farmer's Wife QAL, I made these blocks, using foundation paper piecing, and Lecien fabrics.

Finally I can see the finish line of this glorious quilt. I thought I should write one last post about my work in progress, before actually finishing this one. I have started this quilt in January 2012, and now that December 2014 is upon me, I can finally see the END!

WIP Dresden plate quilt

I have quilted the main background and now all that is left are the circles of the flowers. So there are about 20 circles to be quilted...and this seems like forever! More details about the quilt when it is finally over. You can see my previous posts about it here.

Now it is your turn! Hop over at Freshly Pieced and take a peek on how everyone else is doing.
A new girlie 60 degree triangle quilt is my next finished baby quilt. Triangle quilts are really easy once you get familiar with the piecing process.

It is always a delight to work with Lecien fabrics. Their touch is soft and you can immediately tell that these are premium cotton fabrics. I guess the Japanese really know what they are doing!

A lovely floral quilt for a newborn baby girl is just the perfect present. Suitable as a crib quilt, a playmat or even to hang on your nursery wall as decoration.

This quilt is for sale in my ETSY SHOP.

It's never too late to hop in to one of the most fascinating quilt-a-longs! The Farmer's Wife QAL has been around since 2011 (I think), and has gained thousands of fans. I purchased the book since 2012, but never dared to participate, until now that I have started the YouTube channel.

FWQ_Economy

So, starting this week, I will be posting 2 blocks per week, hoping to finish the sampler quilt in about a year from now.

FWQ_Big Dipper

For my first two blocks, I chose two easy ones, that also come with different names in the quilting terminology. I used foundation paper piecing for both blocks, and even though it is time consuming, I really love the accuracy that this technique gives you. Of course I made a slight mistake on the Big Dipper, but I guess it will be fixed once I piece the whole quilt.

You can watch my tutorials for these two blocks here:

no. 6 Big Dipper
no. 29 Economy

That's it for today, join me every week for two new blocks, and a monthly wrap up of my progress. It is truly exciting to start this sampler quilt!
