Farm Girl Friday - Week 22 and a new Farm Girl Block - Corn and Tomatoes 2!

Good morning Farm Girl peeps!
It's Week 22 in our 

We are almost finished sewing 
all 45 Farm Girl blocks 
in the 6" Sampler on the cover 
of my book 
but I promised you in
 the beginning that I would be
 throwing in several 
new blocks along the way:)

And this week I'm happy to 
announce that
the PDF pattern is ready for my 
Corn and Tomatoes 2!
Of course there are detailed
 instructions and also cutting
 for 6" and 12" block sizes:)

if you want to harvest your own
 Corn and Tomatoes 2!

I still have more Farm Girl Vintage 
companion blocks that will be
 released as PDF's 
over the next 6 weeks 
as soon as my 
Farm Girl Vintage Workshops 
are over.
 I always design
 new blocks for my students
to play that are top secret 
until then...and I can't wait to
 show you what they are!

But for now...
let's get to this weeks blocks:)
Turn to page 69...

And let's make 
Water Turn 

This is a super fun block to make...
Made up of simple
half square triangles 
and flying geese:)

I made and designed this block way back 
when we were in the middle of my 
Quilty Barn Along:)

When it was finished...

It ended up in a red barn
 with bicycles inside:)
It was not unusual to see
 bikes in our barn while
 we were growing up.

Now turn to page 70 
of the book and let's do 
I named this block Welcome because...

I used it in my 
Farmhouse Lane quilt 
from the book...
and nothing says Welcome 
like a farm house with
 a nicely kept front yard...right?

I think they look like 
colorful flowers 
all in a row don't you?

You can find the pattern 
and step by step instructions 
for this quilt in the book:)

Thanks for playing 
Farm Girl Friday with me today...

Don't forget to 
for the schedule and visit
 this weeks guest bloggers!

I also have another 
fun announcement this week.
Bee in my Bonnet Design Boards 
are now available 
in ready made form!
I'm so excited about this:)
They are very handy when
 making your Farm Girl blocks...

They come in two sizes
 and 6 colors!
The 18" size are perfect
 for the 12" blocks...

And the 10" size 
are perfect for 
the 6" blocks:)

As I've told you many times...
once you have used my design boards 
you will wonder what 
you ever did without them:)

These are some of the fun things that
has been doing with them this week:)

So if you never got around 
to making your own...
or you want to add 
to your collection...
(you can never have too many)
and go get you some!

Have a Farm Girl Vintage kind of day...

I am so excited! I finally purchased both your Farmgirl Vintage and Quilty Fun books yesterday! I have been drooling over them since the first time I seen them online. My local Joann's had both of them sitting next to each other like they were there just waiting for me! I now have to decide where to begin! I am new to quilting, so I am sure my quilts will not be perfect, but that is ok I will learn. The instructions in your books are very easy to understand. I am looking forward to making my first block this weekend!

I am so inspired by your quilts! I NEED your book so bad so that I can start on a quilt.

Oh Lori, you are so inspiring. thank you for sharing your enthusiasm ♥️

Pam McDonald said...

I love the new blocks, thank you!!

linda said...

Love your work! I am unclear though about your boards - what are they made of and how thick are they?

I have so enjoyed your Farm Girl Vintage - seeing the new blocks every Friday, following your oh-so-easy-clearly-written patterns, and all the other little side products. In addition I just downloaded the Corn & Tomatoes block. Any chance we could get a cow or cow head? (I shudder to think of piecing an udder!) Thanks so much, Lori, for making my quilt piecing an enjoyable process.
