I had almost given up on the Farmer's Wife Quilt Along.
I had 8 blocks done, and wasn't enjoying it.
But I really wanted to finish this quilt,
because I had planned to make 90 blocks for a quilt
for my Grandma's 90th Birthday.
Then I started reading on various blogs about how some people had started paper piecing their blocks . . . . so I joined the Yahoo group (to have access to the paper piecing templates) . . . and made 3 blocks in one morning . . . and it was fun again!
And the blocks turned out perfectly . . . hooray!

It's definitely more fun to choose blocks randomly, so this is what I'll be doing for the remainder of the quilt along. There is a printable list of blocks with checkboxes on Yahoo groups, too, so this is how I'm keeping track of which ones I've made.
|Block #109, Windows|
|Block #77, Seasons|
|Block #66, Periwinkle|
|Block #108, Windmill|
I'm completely in love with this quilt along (again)!
