Farmers Wife quilt along.

I have just joined this quiltalong. 
Amanda and Angela that are hosting this quiltalong here . Why dont you join up with us too.

I have just ordered my book, and also have ordered some contemporary fabric, as I too have decided to put a modern twist on this one.  The goal is to make a quilt from the  111 blocksfeatured in this book

They started the quilt along at the beginning of June (this year) and their goal is to make 2 blocks per month.  So I am 8 weeks or 16 blocks behind.  I will have to sit on my hands until my book and fabric arrives (at least I found the book on line from an Australian book shop), so that shouldnt take too long to reach my door.  

I will start up new page on this blog to show my progress, and I need to look into flicker stream so I can join in the fun and show off the blocks as I make them,
As if I have not got enough to do.
