Farm Girl Fridays - Bee Prepared!!!

My post today is all about
getting ready for our 
Bee Prepared
is my favorite motto
 when it comes to starting any project:)

We only have one week until 
officially begin and 
I'm sew super excited!

So let's talk about a few
Farm Girl Vintage
 things so that you can 
"Bee Prepared!"

This is the book we will
be using for this sew along.
If you don't have a copy yet…
to get one and join us!

If you are using 
Swiss Dots on white 
by Riley Blake
for your background
in any of your projects 
during the sew along…
they are back in stock!
if you need/want some:)

Remember that
 "you are the boss of your own quilt"

So you can chose to make 6" blocks

 for the 
6" Farm Girl Sampler
on the cover of the book
You will need 5 yards of background.

Or if you choose to 
make the 12" block's 
for the 12" sampler
in the book
(Scrappy Haystack Sampler)
The swiss dots would 
be cute there too and
 5 yards of background
 will work for the 
12" blocks for the 
Scrappy Haystack Sampler
 as well!

I just like to share with you
 my very favorites ...
and swiss dots just 
happen to be one of them!

You can use them 
as background in both 
the 6" and 12" block projects
 from my book as well ...
you decide!

And in other good news…
will be back in stock first thing
Monday morning…

I selected this special bundle 
to add to your own scrappy stash
when making projects
for the sew along.
I wanted you to see in person 
the kinds of prints that
I used for projects in my book
and to have the happy colors
that I love in your
own hands to use as well!

Bee Prepared by making sure 
that you have plenty of my
Bee in my Bonnet Design Boards
made and ready to go!

Bee Prepared with your scrappy stash.
I know I've posted about 
how I buy, use and save my fabric 
to build my scrappy stash…
but it's worth taking a look at again
because I sewed my entire
Farm Girl Vintage book
using my scrappy stash.

(That's all I have to say about that:)

Other exciting news!
In June
I will be teaching several
here in beautiful Utah …
hosted by the awesome 
Thimbles and Threads Quilt Shop

We have opened up
 a few more spots!!! 
for more info:)

Come sew with me 
and Miss Lucy!
(miss lucy is my red singer featherweight)

We will be working on 
Farm Girl projects…
and I will be designing
 a new Farm Girl block
(or maybe two)
exclusively for my workshop!


I will be doing a 
farm girl vintage trunk show 
on the first night
and the remaining days
will be spent sewing!
There will be a
super fun 
farm girl swag bag
 and lots of other giveaways 
fun games and prizes:)
I can't wait!!!!

Last but not least…
I wanted to share a new 
Farm Girl Vintage
YouTube video
with you.
to see how cute Kimberly is
and to see how she
turns "backing into binding!"

It's a really fun method 
to use with the
 Farm Kitchen Potholders
from my book.


Have a quilty kind of day 

P.S. Bee Prepared:)

Hi Lori,
I just looked at your post that shows the inside of your Farm Girl book and I LOVE it, almost as much as I love the quilts and projects. Just got to get a copy of it over here in Switzerland. I wonder if my Brick and Mortar LQS has it. In any case congrats on the book.

Susan said...

I'm so excited to finally join one of your sew alongs. I've got your book. Check. I've ordered dotty fabric. Check. I've been selecting fabric. Check. Design boards? *runs off to make design boards * :)

Debbie Johnson said...

I cannot wait! I've got my Lori Holt Farm Girl Vintage Bundle (sweet hubby surprised me with it for Easter!), book and Kona White...but now with all this Swiss Dot talk I want the gray dot on white....BACKORDERED!!! Hope it comes fast! No one seems to have it. I know it will be beautiful in white. Just whining. Thanks for all the Farm Girl fun Lori. You're the best!

Sheri Salatin said...

Hurray!! I am super excited about Farm Girl Fridays! Just got my book yesterday from my LQS and fabric arrived early this week too. Thank you for sharing. I made a couple of design boards last year. Using them non-stop! :)

Jeanna said...

This is a very helpful post. I'm looking forward to May 1st!

Ginger said...

I hope my book gets here in time! Really excited for this sew along.

Nanette Merrill said...

You are so organized. I think I need a life coach or something. How are you?

Stacey T. said...

I just found you last night and ordered the book, so thatI can sew along!! Can you tell me when you said to order 4 1/2 yards of background, is that if you are sewing the 6" sampler? Are the 6" sampler squares that ones that will be highlighted on Fridays??


Jenny D. said...

Countdown has begun! Two qulting friends coming over tomorrow for the first Farm Girl Friday. Girls just want to have fun!

Unknown said...

What size seam allowance do you use on your blocks? I'm new to your blog and just received your new book. I love it!!!
