Farm Girl Friday - Week 24 - A Quilt Label!

Good morning cute people!
Are you ready to play Farm Girl Friday?

We are continuing our 
right here on my blog 
 for a while by popular demand:)

Now that we are finished 
making all of the
 Farm Girl Blocks
in my book

It's time to add the borders...
and the perfect finishing touch 
is a super cute and fun 
label for the back of your quilt!

I'm thinking that my 
Farm Girl Tractor  
from the book is th
e perfect block for your label!

I originally designed this block to use as a label
for my red Quilty Barn Along quilt which is also in my book
Farm Girl Vintage.

I embroidered the information
 that I wanted on my label
 to look like smoke coming
 out of the smoke stack!

Then I added a few borders
 and then cute pinwheels
 for the finishing touch:)
to go to my original tutorial
for the borders and pinwheels:)

This block also makes a cute mini quilt.
So let's all make a Farm Girl Tractor
 for this weeks Farm Girl Fridays...
are you in?
I can't wait to see
 them popping up all over 

Be sure to use the 
so we can all sew them!

In other Farm Girl news...
remember these Hand Mixers
 from my last Farm Girl Vintage retreat?

Well I'm excited to announce that my
 Hand Mixer Block
is now available as a PDF pattern at
 Fat Quarter Shop
It comes in 6" and 12" size
 and is a perfect 
Farm Girl Companion block
for the other 45 in the book!
if you want to
 "mix up" 
even more farm girl fun!

Next week I'll be sharing
 how to use my latest product 
that is just hitting the shelves now.

They are the very first in a series called 
Sew Simple Shapes.
This set is called
and has endless possibilities 
for making all kinds of flowers!

I'm sew excited!
I hope you will love using these 24 shapes as much as I do:)
I have many projects in mind for these...

 I will be having a sew along called 
using these templates
starting this January 18.
to get your set of my
Bloom Sew Simple Shapes

In the meantime...
I'll be showing you
 a few fun projects
 to do with my BLOOM shapes.
It just takes a few scraps of fabric...

And a few "simple shapes" 
to make something fun!

I wish I had just one thimble full of the talent you have! I love the tractor block and I am planning to make my grandson a quilt for Christmas this year using your tractor block. These Bloom shapes are awesome and planning to purchase in the near future so I can join in on the weekly Quilt along! From the sneak peek the Bloom quilt is GORGEOUS!

Katie said...

I adore you. Thank you for such a fun series! I haven't been able to play along, but have been plodding along on my own projects from your Farm Girl Vintage book. And I can't wait to get my hands on the bloom templates... I am not very experienced with applique, so I'm looking forward to getting a lot of practice!

Please don't let this weird you out, but a few weeks ago I dreamed that my husband and I moved into your house. I debated even telling you that because I didn't want to scare you, but it's true!!

Pam McDonald said...

You are so awesome. I love it!

Lori, I have read all the info about these shapes (cute as can be, by the way) but I can't tell if they are heat resistant. I like to use the starch-and-iron method for turning edges and I don't want to warp the templates.

mrsmcbee said...

Oh wow!! I can HARDLY wait, sew excited I am mostly a flower gardener anymore and LOVE LOVE LOVE those fun and different shapes.

Janan Doster said...

Is there a new fabric line too?

✾Jamie Lee Cooley✾ said...

I had a feeling the tractor would be the label! But I'm using your bee from Quilty Fun because this quilt is for my queen bee, my daughter Bea! Already have preordered the templates and some of your new line for the next qal!!!!

Judi Smith said...

I'm glad you are having another Quilt Along! I missed out on the last one, and love the flowers for the new project! I also use the starch-and-press method with templates. Please let us know if these are heat resistant. Can't wait to get started!....oh, wait....Christmas projects aren't done yet! Good thing this is just a sneak peek!

Carla said...
