    I too have the book and cd. I have been getting my fabric together..I think being in a group would be fun. I have always quilted by myself. So glad I joined.

    Now, that made me giggle...I could sooooo hear myself saying that!

    No the FWS CD is not stand alone. You need EQ to use it. The DJ CD is stand alone.
    Not quite true because I don't have EQ and I've done all 111 blocks. I believe you have to buy a separate CD to use with EQ. The CD with the book has all the templates individually, but if you go the the FWSQ site you can download the free templates which are sorted by the block. http://www.thefarmerswifequilt.com/T...rrections.html
    I don't have EQ and I am using the CD that comes with the book with no problems. Also, the CD with the book is both Windows and Mac compatible.

    Well just like anything else I've ever done I'm gonna just jump right in & get my feet wet! Bought my book, pulled fabrics from my stash, printed out at 100% the first couple block templates and converted for PP to tracing paper. So with 52wks in a year and 111 blocks to do.......if I do 2 a wk it will only take me 55 1/2 wks! Thats just a little over a year! Hmmmmmmm very doable! LOL Maybe I'll get real energetic & shave some time off that year by a 1/4, 1/3, or maybe even in 1/2! We shall see, WISH ME LUCK!

    PS: Welcome to any other newcomers that want to jump in with me! Going to start with the original Block 1 & 2 threads, see yah there!

    I have everything and by reading the QB know that I need to starch, sew a scant 1/4 and I have all of Honchey's rotary cutting directions for each block downloaded and ready to go. But I am going to wait till a group starts, or the first of the year. So many Christmas gifts need finishing up first. See ya in 2012, Do check out Honchey's rotary cutting - I find I am better with that than the templates from the CD - wish I had known before, I had printed and filed them all and had started cutting the templates.

    I did the rotary cutting instructions for the FWS Quilt-Along for the members of this board as they were not included with the book. I did this with the permission of the Board & Laurie Aaron Hird, the author of the book. I'm not exactly sure where they are listed here...but...they are here...somewhere. Anne

    Hi! I've been posting my photos in the appropriate photo pages. I had 1 & 2 done early on and am now catching up. So far I have through 9 & 10 sewn and a few others. I'm up to 16 finished blocks. QuiltE has been hopscotching all over with hers. (She's out of town right now) We'd sure enjoy others coming on our journey and seeing your photos, too!

    Oh I am glad they will start another *round* of the Farmers Wife blocks... I only got a few made on the first round, but I still like the entire *project* tremendously, and have a tub of fabric intended to cut from... Will look forward to it early in the new year....

    oksewglad, don't worry, I, at least, am here to "cheer you on"! I am subscribed to all the FWS threads with daily email notifications, and, unlike the old format, the new QB format seems to be doing its job. I'm getting notification for each of my subscriptions whenever there are new posts. So, keep posting pictures of your beautiful blocks. I enjoy the eye candy!

    I'm so glad I stumbled across this thread. I've got some of the blocks done, but I wasn't going in order. Would love to do this with the group!

    Oh please post them and then we can ooh and ahh. The more the merrier! I am going to try to go in order from now on. I just posted Week 5 photos last night.

    Hello Ladies ... it seems I missed the latest posts on this thread!

    First of all, Welcome AnnieQuilts!! ... oh please do join us in the "Latecomers FWS Group". We're enjoying the journey and getting lots of support from the Earlybird Pioneers! They are so good with their oohs and aahs, lessons learned and advice!

    Oh no, it's not ending ... as it's so much fun to post on the original threads, and keep it all going!

    Has the next group for the farmers wife started already? I was doing the first time, but got behind so early that I gave up but really want to do this one. If it has started, are we doing new threads or just adding on the the ones from the first time around?

    Welcome Back, BrookeMarie!! I'm one of the Latecomers and have been welcomed by the earlier ladies. And there's some others that started like you, and had an intermission for awhile are back continuing on. The journey is continuing with all of us posting and ooohing and aaahing. We're continuing to post on the original threads.

    One thing you may have noted, that with the new system, we are not getting the auto-notices of posts to threads. So, if you post, you will .... or you can subscribe to a thread and get notified for each. In the meantime, OKSewGlad and I have been putting a note on the update thread (see link to follow), to tell the ladies which blocks we've posted.
