Fabulous Five Celebrtion was the theme for my middle granddaughter's birthday! Ashlynn is our glamour girl, yet loves to play in dirt,,,looking for diamonds!! She wanted a rock star birthday with a Taylor Swift~Selena Gomez spin on it! She had a fun party with her preschool party girls and decorated guitars and cupcakes, with alot of bling!
Father's Day is Ashlynn's actual birthday, so the party continued all weekend, as a birthday should! So, no sewing yet but their only Fabulous Five once ~xox~
Well, I got my Farmer's Wife Sampler Book and love the letters and patterns!! I've been following some FWQA bloggers and it seems this is quite a challenge with templates and all!! Yikes!! I wonder if hand piecing would be easier on some of those odd shaped pieces....we'll see!
I was going to use Aunt Grace fabrics or some that kept to the 1920s~30's but I just can't get away from the coral reds and
Of course, I had to throw in a few wild cards...green!
Most of these are Moda, but I have some that have been around and need to find a home~
Farmer's Wife Quilt Along
Well, now I'm off to trace templates and decide whether to start with block one or make them according to the story selections...
oh what to do!!
I have joined my first quilt along, the Farmer's Wife sampler, based from the book Laurie Aaron Hird. I saw it and thought it was a bit overwhelming, but then this great group of quiltey bloggers started the project and now it's growing like a wild fire!! As some have said, the pressure is too great,,,we must join the 'cool group' and work our way through!! I get my book tomorrow and choose the fabrics!!! I am thinking of going with feed sack prints as this is based around the 1930's. It will be so much fun and I need the creative challenge and inspiration!! So excited!! ~xo~
