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


Yippee!

It's another episode of 




We are using my latest book 



And using Farm Girl Vintage fabric...



And making two blocks each week...


Until all 45 blocks are completed:)



The first Farm Girl Block 
for this week is
 HAPPY HORSE 
on page 72 of the book.
He is just hanging out 
in his green pasture being happy
 because he has hay and grain 
and carrots to eat...
and a quilty blanket to
 keep him warm and stylish:)

He is obviously well taken care of.
He looks just like the horse
 that I used to ride on our farm...
his name was Tempest.


Of course I had to do 
something fun with him...


So I cut a 6" Happy Horse block...



And then cut and sewed a
 12" Grandpa's Truck Block



After sewing the horse I 
"shortened" his legs LOL



And gave him a ride!



Now I'm hauling a sheep and a horse:)
This is so fun!

If you missed my tutorial 
on how to load up a farm animal
 into the back of Grandpa's Truck
for week nine's post


The next Farm Girl Block is
 HONEY BEE 
on page 78 of the book.
Our honey bee likes to 
buzz around from flower to flower...


And buzz around the 
Busy Beehive's in the 
BEEKEEPERS GARDEN QUILT 
on page 136 of the book.


And honeybee likes to 
"Bee"on a pin pillow LOL

I made eight of the
 Farm Girl Pin Pillows 
for the book photo shoot.
The Pin Pillow instructions 
are on page 196 of the book.


The 6" Farm Girl Blocks
 are used for the Pin Pillows...
and you have so many to choose from!

All you need after making the block 
is grab a few coordinating prints 
and some of my Lg. Vintage Trim to match....








Just a few photos of when 
I was choosing the backing fabric 
when making a few Pin Pillows:)


When I made this one with the 
Cheerful Tulips Block 
I took photos of my process
 so that I could show them to you
 during our sew along!


















Sew fun and and they really come in handy!





I love adding cute little accessories
 to my Farm Girl projects...


And I think it's fun to gather 
little props from around my home
 to add to each block photo.
It takes me back to playing "farm" 
with my little brothers:)

I made the carrots with orange linen
 and then used one of the green prints
 from my Farm Girl Vintage Companion 
fabrics to make the carrot tops.
I tied jute bows around them
 for extra cuteness:)


Last week I crocheted this cute 
little bottle/vase cover 
using my Chunky Thread.
The color of Chunky Thread 
that I used is LIPSTICK


I thought it went really cute
 with my Honeybee Block:)


Thanks for joining me this week
 for our sew along.
I hope you've enjoyed our chat
 about this week's blocks...
I'll meet you right back here
 next week with two more!
