Block Completed: 10/2/15
Fabrics Used: Riley Blake
Well, after having the fabric for a very (very) long time now and promising to Angie that I wouldn’t start before September 28th (promise promise promise!), I extra kept that promise and waited until today. Ha – truthfully, I’ve been so busy getting the Advent Wreaths pattern ready for publishing that these past few days have flown by.
I had so much fun with this block as part of the Farmer’s Wife quilt! The fabric screamed to be fussy cut, so I willingly obliged. Don’t you love how the fish seem to swim in a circle buy cialis online from india around the mermaids?
Overall the block went great. I made some templates to use as a guide so I could get *exactly* the cut I wanted, and only had to rip out two sets of stitches (couldn’t handle corners not lining up). I’m really excited about this QAL, and look forward to seeing everyone else’s work!

Such a cute block! Love the little fish and mermaid!
What a beautiful block and the way you arranged the fabrics and fussy cut is perfect!
Thanks, Connie! I’m using up more fabric than I thought, but saving all the scraps to be used on the back.

Your blocks for the Farmer’s Wife quilt are outstanding. You are really giving me a lesson in what precise fussy cutting and sewing can do to make a superior block. And I love the fun fabríc!
Aww, Beth, thank you!! It’s been a challenge (in a good way) to find the exact perfect cut for each, but it means so much to hear that you like them as much as I do!
