Week 2 - FWQAL

On Wednesday Angela from Fussy Cuts blogged about week two of the FWQAL, you can find her post here. We talked by email and she was absolutely wonderful  and welcoming about joining in with the group. No standing on the sidelines of the playground with this.

So with her lead I'm following up to show you what I have done this week.  I was able to make three blocks, your really only asked to do two. But sometimes you just have to go with it.
Block 9- Box
In case you notice, the center square is pieced. I started this using a charm pack, and I'm trying to use and stretch every little bit.
Block 21- Contrary Wife
I've been working through based on the templates that I allready have printed out. That is the one issue that has frustrated me up to this point. Each template is on a seperate piece of paper, so 116 templates/pages. This seems like such a waste of paper. Surely there must be a better way. I'm putting figuring that out on my to do list.

Block 41- Friendship Star
  Seeing how I started all of this with two charm packs. I am definately going to need to order more. Now comes the hard decision. Do I stay with these two fabric lines or should I go completely scrapy and add more and different bright fabrics?

For now it's time for a refreshing glass of iced tea, and a lawn chair. May you have a fabulous weekend.

  1. Hey Charity, love your blocks, they are so bright.

    I know you are having trouble with the templates, have you considered joining the Farmers wife sampler group on Yahoo? They have all the templates on a block by block basis, as well as for paper piecing. Also don't forget to set your paper scaling on your printer to "none".

    Can't wait to see what else you come up with.


It's always wonderful to know that you have stopped by. All of your comments brighten my day!
