Work in Progress: Oct 2: Quilting is...

"Quilting is the crack cocaine of hobbies" - An awesome coworker
I chose to start this post by quoting a coworker who generously gave me a bundle of Oink A Doodle Moo fabric that she was not going to use any more of (she made 3 quilts out of what she had and wants to work with something new). And I have been pondering/planning/wishing to start making some baby quilts as I have 3 friends due to have their babies within the first couple weeks of 2014. My grandma was also digging through her stash and found a alphabet panel that she doesn't think she will use. So I think between these 2 awesome fabric shares, I should be able to get started on 2 more projects!!

One Oink A Doodle Moo Fabric
Alphabet Panel
This last week I took a wee break and did a ton of filing (which covered my cutting table for a couple days), and only did 4 more Farmer's Wife Blocks.
Block 48 - Homeward Bound
Block 68 - Postage Stamp
Block 103 - Whirlwind
Block 107 - Windblown Square
All 23 blocks together. 
I am running out of blocks to do without getting into quarter-square-triangles, paper-piecing and more complicated stuff, so a bit of time to work on baby quilts will be nice. I am signed up for the Farmer's Wife Class at the store I work at so I am waiting for the next month's worth of blocks to keep going.

Linking up with Freshly Pieced again this week.

Thanks for stopping by to read about my very addictive hobby. Hope everyone got their fabric fix this week.



  1. Love the Farmers Wife blocks. You have choose such great colours to do these blocks in.
