Welcome to week one of our
Farm Girl Vintage 2 Sew Along
Also known as
We will be sewing all 45
of the Farm Girl Blocks...
2 each week...
and we will do them in order
that they are in the book...
which happens to be alphabetical:)
If you are going to make the
Farm Girl Vintage 2 Sampler
on the cover of the book...
You can decide which blocks
that you want to
make either 12" or 6"
Instructions for both sizes
are of course in the book.
You will need to make
20 - 12" blocks and 30 - 6"blocks.
If you would like to make
your quilt EXACTLY like mine...
and go on over to the Jolly Jabber
to get this Handy Dandy
chart to use as your guide.
That there is a total of 50 blocks
in the quilt and because there are
45 Farm Girl Blocks in the book...
you could do some of them twice
like I did...
Or choose 5 from my first
Farm Girl Vintage book...
because there are 45 Farm Girl Blocks
in that one as well:)
"YOU ARE THE BOSS OF YOUR OWN QUILT"
You can choose to place your blocks
where you would like to in your quilt!!
You will know exactly where
which size goes in the quilt by
using the block placement diagram
on page 140 and 141.
It's easy to follow and I've designed it
that way so that you can
make it your own:)
We are using my fabric collection called...
Farm Girl Vintage!!
The very first block in the book is
and that's pretty convenient considering
I'm right in the middle of
decorating for fall:)
I wanted to make a taller pumpkin
for this book that would go nicely
with my Patchwork Pumpkin
in the first book:)
Of course I had to put a
star right in the center...so fun!!
I also used this block as
part of my
October Skies Quilt
in the book.
I made this quilt exactly
like the cover quilt...
using the same block placement diagram
on pages 140 and 141 but
instead of making 45 or 50 different blocks
I used only fall themed blocks.
I used the Farm Girl Vintage
orange bandana print for the borders:)
It's perfect for my fall decorating
and I hope you love it too!
Here's what all of the blocks
looked like when they were all made...and laid out just how I wanted them
and ready to sew together for my quilt!
If you would like to make an
October Skies Quilt too...
I listed all of the Farm Girl Blocks
that I used for mine on page 136 of the book.
Our next Farm Girl Block is
Baked with Love
It features two oven mitts that have
just been used to take a
delicious homemade pie
out of the oven to cool.
I use my Bee Basics Aurifloss set
for any of the Farm Girl blocks that may have embroidery.
(from the supply list on page 6 of the book)
I used all 6 strands and a backstitch
for the 12" block and when I
make the 6" block sometimes
I use only 3 strands.
It depends on what kind of background
fabric I am using and how many strands
will show up the best:)
I also use my aqua Nifty Needles...
they are the one's for embroidery.
These are also listed in the
supplies on page 6.
I also used this block (in 6" size)
for my Small "Mix and Match" Quilt.
I used 6 more kitchen themed blocks:
Farm to Table
Corn and Tomatoes 2
Mixing It Up
I used the Farm Girl Vintage red gingham
for the border and hung it
on my kitchen wall:)
The small Mix and Match quilt
is a great size for a wallhanging...
a table topper...or a baby quilt!
