4 down, only 107 more to go

June 9th, 2011

Twitter is so harmless… if you don’t go on it! A few days ago I saw John tweeting about a quilt-a-long he was in… interesting, interesting… my curiosity piqued. Then I notice the QAL is based on a book I already had.  And then I saw Katy was tweeting about it.  And then I saw Amanda’s tweets.  Before I knew it,  it was as if John, Katy and Amanda each poured the Kool-aid right through my USB cables.  Bathing in the Farmer’s Wife QAL Kool-aid. So now I’ve made a fresh pitcher and am ready to pour it back… to pass it on. I get a toaster-oven when I get someone to join in the FWQAL fun. That may or may not be true.

The FWQAL is hosted by Amanda and Angela, and there you will find all the nuts, bolts and Kool-aid of the QAL. Oh, and they have a FWQAL flickr group, too.  If that doesn’t get me a new toaster-oven - I don’t know what will.  My first four:

Farmer's Wife Quilt-a-Long - Block 1 Farmer's Wife Quilt-a-Long - Block 2
Farmer's Wife Quilt-a-Long - Block 3 Farmer's Wife Quilt-a-Long - Block 4

C’mon. You know you want to.  Jana said/tweeted it best, “Do it! All of the cool people are… you’ll be popular… one time won’t hurt!”  (sounds like I have some toaster-oven competition - game on, Jana.)

  21. The fabulous Kristen allegedly said:

    Okay, I’m in. I’ll be a bit behind, though, since I JUST clicked “order” on the book, and still have a brand-spanking empty new blog to start posting to. And I really have no idea how to deal with Flickr or Twitter but hopefully just blogging and following you and Angela will keep me up.

  22. The fabulous Angela allegedly said:

    I’m so happy that you are joining in the fun! Your blocks are absolutely gorgeous. Love the fussy cutting!

  27. The fabulous Krista - Poppyprint allegedly said:

  28. The fabulous Kasi allegedly said:

    Good GAWD! That is a HUGE quilt! Are there 55.5 weeks in the summer to complete? That’s a YEAR+ dedicated to this project. You are CRAZY QUILTERS!!!!
    [Translated: I can’t wait to see the final product!]

    NOTE: Keepsake Cottage in Bothell has Holiday Happy on AWESOME sale, for anyone that just didn’t get enough of the Happy Gnomes last year. I suppose they are making room for some HAPPY MOCHI YUM YUM due out ANYDAY!!!! (Already have my name on the waiting list and checking in twice a week. I mean, really? I HAVE to go to Country Village AGAIN this week to check? Twist my arm!!!)

  29. The fabulous Kasi allegedly said:

    Monica!!!! If you are doing 4 blocks a week, you CAN do it in one summer. You’ll be like the Phineas & Ferb of Quilting…[Que Title song: “There’s 104 days of summer, to quilt my Farmer’s Wife blocks”…]
