I hope to see you soon.

Drinking the Kool-aid on the Farm

That's right ladies I could no longer resist..... I had to join!

I may have some catching up to do, but I am Super Excited!!!  Thanks to all who encouraged me to join.  I have been on the fence for a while, but I am glad I finally made the commitment to join.

So, I checked out my book from the library and picked out some fabrics at the happiest place on earth.  Well, for a quilter.  :)

I printed out my templates and got started right away.  I big Thanks to lizquiltz for condensing all the templates into one15 page document.  You can find it in the Flickr Discussion Group.  It was a huge paper saver, 106 pages down to 15.  I think I may have saved a tree somewhere out there.

It may be week 5 over at the FWQAL but here in paradise it is only week 1 and here is what I got done, the Attic Window Block #1, the Basket Weave Block #4, and the Big Dipper Block #6.  As you can see I have already abandoned my plan to do all the blocks in order.  Oh well, what can you do?  I think I may need to add a few more colors to my stash....some solids maybe to go with the prints.  What do you think?


  1. They're beautiful! Your fabric choices are perfect for these blocks. You are going to looooove this QA!

  2. I think I am going to have to break down and make one. I wonder if my library has one? And the condensed templates? Brilliant!
