long term project

I'm still plugging away very slowly on my Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt. Even though the blocks are pretty time consuming, I really enjoy working on a block here and there when I need something small to focus on between the big projects.
Here are the most recent blocks I've made:

#15 Buzzard's Roost

#80 Single Wedding Star

#7 Birds in the Air

#14 Butterfly at the Crossroads

16 blocks complete
So these are the 16 blocks that I've completed so far! These 6" blocks look so much smaller in person. I've got a long way to go. I'm going "scrappy" with my color scheme but you can definitely tell which colors I'm drawn to (hello orange!).

Very pretty so far! It would be difficult to choose a favorite square!

I agree with everyone else on the airplane fabric. Where is it from?

Your version of "birds in the air" is AMAZING! Well, actually, ALL your FW blocks are wonderful. I can't wait to see more :)
