Farmer's Wife 1930s Quilt Along

So..... that was a bit of a blogging break, wasn't it?!

Life got a bit more crazy for a while there and this blog fell by the wayside. I've been around on Instagram but actually writing a blog post just never happened.

Anyway, I'm hoping to be back on here more often as I'm taking part in Kerry's Farmers Wife 1930s quilt along and will be posting about the blocks I'm making.

Here is my initial fabric pull. I'm going for pretty 1930s prints and solids because I just love the fabrics used in the book. I'm planning to English paper piece the blocks. 

In case anybody is wondering about getting a copy of the book and joining the Quilt Along, I would really recommend it. The letters are really lovely to read and the blocks are beautiful. Kerry and her guests will be posting about two blocks each week for the next year so there will be loads of hints and tips for lots of construction methods. You can find her QAL page here

I can't wait to get started!

Since it's been a while since I've blogged here is a little picture of my boys :)

Have a great weekend!
