Welcome to my blog...
are you ready to sew?
Plug in your iron...
change your rotary blade...
turn on your fave tunes and
Grab your book
Farm Girl Vintage 2
Grab your Farm Girl Vintage fabric...
And let's make two more
Farm Girl Blocks!!
The first Farm Girl Block up
for this week is the
BARN CAT BLOCK
found on page 17 of the book:)
I had to style this photo
with my Chunky Thread
because as we all know...
cats and yarn just go together!!
I used my Aurifloss to embroider the face...
And I thought that you
might want to see a close up.
If you don't like to do french knots...
it could be really cute to add
tiny Cute Little Buttons for the eyes...
or you could also do a
cross stitch for the eyes as well.
Another thought that I have for this block
is to make it into a quilt label.
If you need a fast and fabulous quilt
for a cat lover...
whip up one of my Farm Girl Gingham Quilts from page 166 ...
and then make a Barn Cat Block (or two)
for the label and make it in the colors
of their favorite cat...(or cats!)
Of course you will need to personalize it even more by adding their cat names as well.
That would really be fun:)
Stacks and stacks of Farm Girl ideas!
The next Farm Girl Block
for this week is the
found on page 22 in the book.
I really love this block.
I love flower blocks and I've
used them often throughout the book.
every farm has flowers whether they
are nicely planted in rows
in front of the farm house or
growing wild out in the pasture:)
One of the quilts that the
Bright Zinnia block is in
is the Beekeepers Garden Quilt
along with all of the other flower blocks.
I'll be showing more of this quilt
in next week's post when we do the
Busy Beehive Hive Block:)
Even one little 6" Bright Zinnia
all by itself would make an adorable
mini quilt or a pot holder
for your farmhouse kitchen:)
I have another project going with
cute little 6" Bright Zinnia Blocks and here are 3 of them...
they are so fun and addicting to make!
There are endless possibilities
with all of the colors and prints
in my Farm Girl Vintage fabric...
I love this collection so much and
I hope you are having fun with it too!
"you are the boss of you're own quilt"
but if you want to make yours
just like mine then don't forget to
download the handy dandy chart from week one.
Thanks for joining me on the farm
this week and keep your
posts coming and use the hashtag
We all want to see your blocks!
I'll be here next Friday with more
Farm Girl Fun:)
