Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt

Ok - let me just start by giving you a heads up on my "blogging state of mind"!
I've been doing this blog for 2hours (gasp!!!) and all I have are my pictures on this compose page!  I'm exhausted, frustrated and a little wiggly.....(now 4 hours and 5 minutes!).
On the excited "I can't contain myself" side.....I'm finally posting my blocks and THEN getting them onto the Farmer's Wife Quilt Along on Flickr!  This group started back in June by two friends, Amanda and Angela.  If you want to join this QAL, buy this book, "The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt" by Laurie Aaron Hird.

Blocks #2 and #4

There are 111 block patterns...the goal is to make two blocks a week!  So far, I'm a gazillion weeks behind...(14ish weeks behind).....although "secretly" I have 24 blocks finished...I just have a dickens of a time posting them!!!  
I also have 3ish that I need to do over for a multitude of personal reasons!!!

#2 Autumn's Tint

I would not have attempted ANY of this without Lori at Bee In My Bonnet's blog!

Lori has been inspirational with all her tutorials and beautiful, fun blocks!
So my thought process of joining was to challenge myself to learn how to piece!
