Week 3- FWQAL

This week seems to have flown by. Suppose that happens when you’re having fun, or installing ceiling fans. But really I can't believe its Friday all ready when did that sneak up. This week late last night, I did manage to get done two of my blocks for the farmer's wife quilt along. This week with things being busy, I am thankful for the quilt along to keep me on track. Sometimes it's good to be accountable to someone or something. The group over at Flicker is now 327 strong, Wow!

A big Thanks goes to Happy Zombie, for a blog button.

As for this time I used some fabric in my stash that seemed to go along with the color scheme. I'm not really sure if it is part of a collection or not. Just that for my purposes, it works. Today that's all that matters.
Block 72- Railroad
I also tried a more complicated block, something that I needed to print a new template for. Let me just say that these little half squares are only an inch and a half. I think this was my first experiment with teeny.
Block 38- Four Winds
As for the weekend, I have so much more I want to accomplish. There is quilting, lawn mowing, sewing, fishing with boys, quilting, laundry, sewing...maybe a drive in movie with friends? And we can't really forget that it's Father's Day this weekend. What are your weekend plans?
