She calls it the My Precious Quiltalong and she's doing a summer monthly giveaway on her blog to encourage fabric lovers to bust out the rotary cutters.
Who knew that I was starting on this quiltalong early? In making my Farmer's Wife blocks I decided in the beginning to cut into and use all of my favorites in this quilt.
Many of these prints have only been cut for this project only. I love using all of my favorite text, graphic, hard to find, out of print, and Japanese prints. And little 6.5" blocks are the perfect way to use them without going into a panic that I may run out.
Favorite designers like Suzuko Koseki, Denyse Schmidt, Heather Ross, Kumiko Fujita, and Anna Maria Horner will make a number of appearances in this quilt.
I also have lovely bits from swaps with flickr friends. Some are fabrics that I never would have been able to find otherwise.
I'm cranking out the sashing on these precious blocks. I hope to have a finished Farmer's Wife quilt top next
