That is shortcut for Farmer's Wife Quilt A-long that you can read about here. I read a lot of blogs, and the quilty/sewing blogs say much the same thing that I am saying to myself about this....I am very busy, have tons of things/projects that need to be done...this is the LAST thing I need to have on my plate. So, I have seen some of the blocks that people are doing and it was starting to look interesting. Then I thought about my older teaching days when I taught the "Block of the Month Club" and loved making all sorts of different blocks. It didn't get boring. Add that on top of the see-through wire drawers that show me exactly how much fabric I have that should find a project home. So, I went ahead and ordered the book from Amazon, and decided to do the "quilt a-long", but not sure if I am officially going to sign up or if I am just going to do some blocks now and then. The latter approach sounds much better and won't add another layer of to-dos to my list. Jerilynn P.S. Haven't decided if I am going to go with a color plan for the blocks or just keep choosing colors for the blocks as I go along according to my whim. I vote whim.
