Farm Girl Vintage

This is a newer quilt book by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet. It features 45 Farm Girl Sampler blocks in 6" and 12" block sizes. Also included are all of the patterns featured in her incredibly popular Quilty Barn Along from her blog, Bee in my Bonnet Co. The pictures are from Lori Holts Blog.

 They are so cute and they would look great using Calico Days fabrics that are out right now. You can see Lori's new Bloom sew along on her blog using the Calico Days fabrics.

Strawberries and Pigs

I am excited to say, I am still on track with my farm girl quilt blocks. Here are the latest ones that I made this week.

I am pretty excited at how well they turned out. It has been a lot of fun busting out my scrap bucket and digging for colors. I doubt I will make any more strawberry blocks for a while though. Sewing 1.5 inch half square triangles and blocks together is kind of tedious.

My friend liked the pig blocks so much that I helped her make 9 pigs. She has a thing for pigs and wanted one for everyone in her family. I will have to ask her if I can post a picture of them after she makes her wall hanging.

Enjoy your week,

Farm girl blocks

I wanted to participate in Lori Holts' farm girl quilt along last year, and as always life got busy. So this year, I decided I was going to make a block or two a week. Hoping all goes well, I might be able to get a few quilts made for my girls who are super excited and have been picking out the colors for their quilt blocks. Here are the first few blocks:

Sorry for the bad lighting. It is a rainy gloomy day today and my table is in a corner.

I will try to post them as I get them done. That way you can all see my crazy awesome blocks, and I will have a little more motivation to keep sewing.
