1st Day of Summer...

...And the Pacific Northwest is actually dishing up some sun! Considering the LONG, drearier than normal spring we've had, this is really a big deal for us.





As you can see, The Spotted One is celebrating by snoozing in the sun, on MY pillows. He NEVER snoozes on my pillows, he always prefers The Bearded One's pillows.

On to FWQAL (Farmer's Wife Quilt Along). I have six more blocks completed, bringing my total to12.




Block #7 - Birds in the Air
This block contains 40 pieces! Whew! Those little half square triangle units finish at 1".





Block #8 - Bouquet





Block #9 - Box





Block #10 - Bowtie





Block #11 - Broken Dishes





Block #12 - Broken Sugar Bowl

I know it looks like I've been super productive but I have to admit, the last five shown here were all precut and assembled at my weekly Tuesday quilting group.

Love the your fabric choice!

You have chosen beautiful fabrics. Someone on flickr had refered to some templates that you've consolidated onto a few pages (instead of printing each one on a page from the cd), but I couldn't find a link. Would you mind telling me where I can find them? Thanks so much.

Love these blocks, they're wonderful. I wonder what I should do with a bag o' 30's scraps... maybe something similar? You inspire me.

Hey, Arlo... you make those pillows look good.
