Farm Girl Friday's - Week Four!

Good Morning cute people!
I hope you're up with the chickens 
because it's week 4 of

Turn to page 17 in my book…
and lets get started!

First we will be making the 
Canning Season block.

I designed this block 2 years ago
for my Quilty Barn Along
here on my blog.
If you didn't already know…
that's where the basis of my 
Farm Girl Vintage began:)
I thought you might like to see the tutorial
that I originally did for this block.
to go back in time 2 years!

The next block up is my
Chicken Foot block.
I also designed this one two years ago
as part of my Quilty Barn Along

to go back again and see all of my
 tips and tricks in 
constructing this block too.
*Take note that 
I did not always press my seams
open in the tutorials back then…
but I strongly suggest that you do.

I think it's easier 
to line up the seams
and your blocks lie flatter.

These blocks ended up in my 
Silo Barn Quilt
Directions begin on page 92:)

If you tuned it last week 
you already
know that I made a
 Canning Season block...

and paired it up with
 last weeks
Baking Day block...

To make pockets for my 
Farm Girl Apron!

Apron pockets tutorial 
from last week is 

Here's my 6" Canning Season block
for my Modern Mini's
Farm Girl Sampler 
from the book...

And my 6" Chicken Foot block
from Modern Mini's as well:)

I also made another 12" block 
using Feed Company by Sweetwater.
I'll be adding it to my
 Square Dance quilt
on page 118.

I'm catching up on the farm girl blocks this weekend - making the 6 inch size. I have to say that I am more impressed than ever by your accurate sewing and beautiful blocks! The pieces in these blocks are little and it's not all that easy to have them come together perfectly.

I was needing a bit of inspiration for a gift and I just knew you would have it!! I'm going to make the apron pockets - so cute and I know my friend will love it. Thanks Lori, you always have something good going on!
