On the Bandwagon
I know, I know, the Farmer’s Wife madness is nothing new. I got the book for Christmas after slobbering over everybody else’s blocks and then didn’t crack it open until last week. Now I can’t stop making them.
I think part of what took me so long was the debate over what fabric colors to use. I finally decided that I wouldn’t fight my love of Bonnie & Camille‘s fabrics (since it seems like I use them for just about everything) and got started. I really love that I can mix and match a lot of their collections together. Most of these blocks are made of Marmalade, but bits of Ruby and Vintage Modern are slowly creeping in.
I think most people are making them at a leisurely pace (2 blocks per week), but I suppose that is so they can work on other things and keep this as a side project. As for me, just as I finish one, I can’t wait to start on the next. My hope is to have it finished in no time!
