returning to the Farmer's Wife quilt-along blocks

It now has been several weeks since I made any of the FWQAL blocks -- and I knew that my participation in that QAL would have to be in fits and starts, despite the fact that the rest of the QALers are humming along at the nice, steady pace of 2 blocks a week.

I made 26 blocks in the first six weeks or so, and now finally here are 2 new ones.

#102, Whirpool



#103, Whirlwind


It seems like a good time for a group shot.  Note that block #3, Basket, is currently undergoing handle relocation surgery and couldn't be present for the photo.

  
Back to work!  Have a lovely day, everyone :)

You're really humming along here. They all look so bright and cheery. I really need to get back to mine, it's been over a month since I did any work on them-I'm falling behind.

Thanks so much for all these sweet comments -- they make me want to sew more (which is always a good thing!).

As for the sashing, I'm thinking plain white (or natural/off-white) since there's lots of action in the blocks themselves :)

Thanks everyone!
