    Just jump right in! The original group started in Aug. 2010 and finished in Aug. 2011. However there are stragglers (like me) who weren't able to keep up and are still working on it. There are others who joined in later and are still posting blocks. In the past week, three new people have started. You will have plenty of company!

    Our suggestion (the FW'ers) is to go through the BOM and subscribe to every picture thread. It's great to read the posts and see the blocks that have been done. I get lots of ideas for each block by looking at what has already been made. There's also discussion about easier ways to do blocks, etc.

    If you don't want to find the threads manually, I do have a list of all the picture pages for all the blocks. I could email it to you.

    Just dive in and start posting, and it will go out to everyone who has worked on the quilt.

    If you are a paper-piecer, you can get those patterns. You need to join Yahoo Groups, then join the Farmer's Wife group. Once you're accepted you can go into the files and find all the paper piecing in one place.

    If you want to rotary cut, then Honchey listed directions for that each week the blocks were posted.

    Of course the templates are on the CD that came with the book.

    Because there are so many of us getting the emails for the blocks, just ask a question and somebody will answer!

    Welcome to the friendliest group of quilters around!

    thank you very much for a very warm welcome. I just started the quilt on the 1st of January and finished block 20 today and I think it is time for me to slow down with it and a group is the perfect way for me.. thanks again

    I will post my blocks soon

    OK I love your blocks. It's good to be a rebel sometimes. I have 2 "personal" blocks in my FWS: one is PennState fabrics and the other is dog paw prints for my dog, Patches. They blend in with all the others. Your quilt is going to be a beauty!

    Welcome aboard davef! 20 blocks? Great start. It's taken me a while to get to where I'm at; taking this at my pace which works for me.

    imdelagarza62, don't be intimidated! Just take your time. They are only pieces of fabric and if it doesn't work out the way you like, make another one and move on.
    We have no quilt police here, but one tip that will prove helpful is to use contrast in your fabric selections so that the design of the patchwork comes through.

    Just take your time with it. This isn't a race and there is no time limit. Give it a try and if you don't like it then you can stop. It is a lot of fun though!

    Thanks, Jan. Hope life is calming down for you. DH and I are now parentless, so I know how your life has been.

    Smile Farmers wife Blocks 21 and 22

    Here is my blocks 21 and 22. 22 was definitely a bugger for me to do.

    Bugger or not you've done a nice job of both. On 22, instead of following block recommendations, I think if I would've made a center 4 patch of the one big triangle and 4 smaller triangles x 4, then sewn 4 flying geese blocks and added the smaller triangles onto the ends and put the final corner triangles on, the block would've gone together better.

    Stop it! Stop it! You're posting too fast. I can't get my breath. I may pass out seeing all these lovely blocks in succession!

    I have this rope in my hands. I can't figure out whether I found a rope or lost my horse.

    ROL!! I'm going into a diabetic coma from all the pretty eye candy!!! Get me a chocolate bar! I'm really liking the green paisley in the second block--I've seen it before.

    Just another fine pair, Anael. Can't wait to see this done. Are you going to put them in one quilt or are you going divide them like you did the PC blocks? Have you thought about a sashing color? Just love the crispness of the white--it's a color I don't use very often and should.

    Thank you oksewglad! I'm going to put these in one quilt and keep it for myself
    No, I haven't thought about sashing color, that's something I always forget when I start. With all the different colors I'm using I guess I can think about sashing when I'm almost finished, lay out all the blocks and look what might be best.

    Yeah one for yourself! I understand about the sashing. I bought mine for FWS a couple of weeks ago. A nice soft brown to go with the myriad of colors going on in my quilt.

    I can see the answer to my earlier question. I like the white background and with the bright colors...this quilt will be one that you will treasure for yourself. Way to go.
