Okay, I'm giving in.  These blocks are so RAD!   I must join The Farmer's Wife Quilt A Long (FWQAL).  Whats that?  It a group of women I'm joining who are all currently reading The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt book by Laurie Aaron Hird .  The book is a collection of letters from 1920s farm wives and the 111 quilt blocks they inspired.  Just placed a hold on the book at my nearest Barnes & Nobel. Picking it up first thing tomorrow.  I'm only a couple weeks behind the start date.  I'm not quite sure how I will fit this in, but hey, its not a race:D

For more info on the FWQAL go here.

Thanks for stopping by.
