Farm Girl Friday - Week Eight!

Hello cute people!
Today is week eight of 
Farm Girl Friday's

If you are just joining us…
for my very first blog post about
our Sew Along:)

Every week we are sewing two blocks
from my latest book
Farm Girl Vintage

if you want to join us!!!

For this weeks blocks we are starting with
Farm Fresh Flower
Cutting and sewing instructions 
are on page 26.

This block is one of 
the easiest in the book to make.
Easy cutting…
Easy layout…
Easy construction:)

It would make a super cute 
super simple quilt.
Looky how fun it would be to add
borders around each block
and then just sew all
 of the blocks together!

I really like how a border 
 frames the flower.

Well I'll just go ahead and add that 
to my ever growing list 
of scrappy Farm Girl projects:)

So onto our next block…
on page 27 -29

Here are a few of the blocks on my design board 
back when I was making the quilt…

That turned into this one.
Farmhouse Lane
on page 128:)

This is during the inside photo shoot.
We just hung up the quilt and I was
deciding what I wanted with it for the photo.

I chose to put some of 
my green depression glass:)

I also like how cute and tiny the 
6" Farmhouse block is…

The perfect size for little mini quilts
or my Farm Kitchen Potholders
on page 120.

Thank you so much for sewing along with me!
Right now I'm at my second week of 
Farm Girl Vintage Workshop/Retreat
but once again…
I pre-posted this for you 
just to keep us on schedule!

Until next Friday…
Have a Farm Girl kind of day!

You are a busy, busy Farm Girl :)! Wish I lived in Utah and could join each and every session. Love the border around the flower block and how each of your suggestions bring a new quilt to mind. Your house block is so fun to make - I've been sewing up quite a few - now which quilt layout should I use?? Love that all your blocks come in two sizes to choose from. Thanks for all the quilty fun!

Lori, I am loving making the barn blocks with the silo. I have so many ideas from your book, I will have a lot of fun sewing to do. I am also making a chicken quilt since I raise chickens and love the idea of doing it in pastels. Thank you for such a wonderful book!
