Good morning and welcome to
Grab your book and turn to page 67
(get yourself a copy by clicking HERE)
There you will find the pattern and instructions
for one of this weeks Farm Girl blocks...
This is a favorite and looks like it's turning...
which is why I named it tumbleweed.
I added the 4 easy corner triangles
on the outside corners to
give it the appearance of being round.
I used this block to make one of the
large Harvest Table runners from the book.
I like the secondary pattern that forms
from the 4 easy corner triangles
when you sew the blocks together...
I know I say this all the time...
but it really is perfect for a scrappy project:)
Did you know that sometimes I like to
use my runners as wall decor as well?
I've always liked the way that 3 runners
look together and you can
hang them horizontally or vertically...depending on the room.
Wouldn't these 3 look great above a sofa?
This photo is from one of my Farm Girl Vintage retreats.
Can you sew the 3 small Harvest table runners too?
They're a great size for wallhangings as well.
The large runners are made from my Apronstrings block...
my Gingham block and of course my Tumbleweed block...
all from the book:)
Next up is my
on page 66.
This is another super versatile block.
You can sew that I used browns in the center
and golden yellow for the petals
so that it looks like a sunflower...
But when I used bright scrappy colors
they look like zinnias!
The pattern for my
Sowing Seeds Table Topper
is on page 122 of the book.
The Sowing Seeds topper is a Mix and Match Setting.
Here you can see two quilts I made with the Sowing Seeds
setting...one is of course with
Sunny Sunflower blocks and the other
is my Butterchurn block which is on page 15.
When I started teaching my
Farm Girl Vintage retreat/workshops
this year...I joined the Crops block from page 23
onto the bottom of my Sunny Sunflowers...
Designed a new companion block for my students
to play with called Penny Pig...
Sewed up some of my Apronstrings block from the book...
And made this quilt using my
Farmhouse Lane setting from the book.
You can purchase my
pattern as a PDF download by clicking
Then we made giant
Farm Girl Vintage Flowers
at retreat using the 12" blocks from the book:)
Look at these cutie pie flowers
made by my cutie pie students!
I love this photo:)
I designed even more companion blocks
in both 6" and 12" sizes to go on top of my Crops block
so that we could plant a
Farm Girl Vintage Flower Garden!
These new flowers are also available
as a PDF download by clicking
