farmer's wife quilt along.

My first quilt along!

I saw a few of these blocks scattered here and there on blogs, became intrigued, and purchased the book:

Normally I wouldn't give a traditional book such as this a second glance, but the blocks I saw made with modern fabrics and bright colors completely changed my mind!  I joined the Farmer's Wife Quilt Along Flickr group and got to work.

I decided to use this as a scrap-buster, doing monochromatic blocks in various colors and including a black/white print in each to unify it.  So far, I'm very happy with the blocks I've completed.

Block 1 - Attic Windows
