Farm Girl Vintage 2 Quilt Along - Farm Girl Friday's - Week Seven!!

Good morning and welcome to 
Week Seven
of our Quilt Along:)

We are using my latest book 

And using Farm Girl Vintage fabric...

and we are making two 
Farm Girl Blocks each week:)

Our first Farm Girl Block today is
and it's on page 47 of the book.
Let's chat about this block for a minute:)

I designed it in a way that you could
also use all three smaller blocks
 to create more blocks ny separating them.
For example:
After adding the "D" sashing strips
to the Apple Core it either is
 a finished 3" block or a 6".
That means you can make 4 apple cores
 and sew them together and it 
would be a 6" or 12" block.

Same goes with the peach.
You can make four peaches in one block...
you could make 2 and use a 
Fresh Pear Block 
from the first book and have a
 peaches and pear block together.

You could make the peach into an apple...
 just by changing the color of the fabric.

The pumpkin is short and fat...
and two of them stacked on each other 
would make a full block.
They would go perfectly with my 
Patchwork Pumpkin Block 
from the first Farm Girl Vintage Book.

I hope these suggestions give you
 some fun ideas for next year
 when fall sewing rolls around again!!

The next Farm Girl Block is 
and is on page 50 of the book.

I decided to make a fun little 
project using this block:)

I put together this mini to 
hang on my wall and it would even make
 a cute pillow on one of my benches or sofa.

I made two 12" FARM GIRL BOOTS.
Of course I made them facing in
 opposite direction for a perfect pair:)

If you have ever wondered if it's hard 
to change the direction of a block...
it's not.
You simply cut it exactly the same 
but just lay it out going the 
other direction and sew opposite.
Easy Peasy!

My two 12" Farm Girl Boots are completed.
I just need to sew them together now.

They will measure
 12 1/2" x 24 1/2"

My books work together very well and
 for this little project I used these three.

I used my
and made all of the letters 
to spell "Farm Girl" from the 6" size.

Then I grabbed my first 
and whipped up a 
6" Simple Star Block.

After sewing the letter blocks I added 
1 1/2" x 6 1/2" sashing 
in-between the letters 
(except for between the 
"F" and the "a" 
I used no sashing)

For the left side of the "F"
 I cut a 2 1/2" x 6 1/2" 
and for the right of the "m" 
I cut a 3" x 6 1/2".

Then I added a 1 1/2" x 24 1/2" 
to the top and the bottom.

For this one I cut a 2" x 6 1/2" strip
 for the left side of the "G".

The remaining 5 strips are cut
 1 1/2" x 6 1/2"

I also sewed a 1 1/2" x 24 1/2" 
to the top and the bottom.

Both the "Farm" section and the 
"Girl" section should now measure 
8 1/2" x 24 1/2"

Farm word goes on the top of the boots...

And the word Girl goes onto the bottom...

I cut  2 strips to add on each side -
1 1/2" x 28 1/2"

26 1/2" x 28 1/2"

I love how this turned out...
I hope I've inspired you to 
make one for yourself or maybe for
 a special Farm Girl in your life!!

I'll be right back here next Friday 
and we will do 2 more blocks!!
