Good morning and welcome back to the
We are using my latest book
And Farm Girl Vintage Fabric...
And making 2 Farm Girl Blocks each week:)
The first Farm Girl Block
for this week is
on page 85 of the book.
You know that I grew up on a farm and
also in a quilting family and so
of course along with pieced blocks...
also appliqué blocks were a
large part of my life on the farm.
Of course I had to name a block
after my Mom's applique!
She often appliquéd farm animal blocks
for baby quilts and when the top
was finished we would
put it on the quilting frames...
make a luncheon...
and invite everybody over to quilt it:)
I made 2 of the blocks in
6" size for the sampler quilt on the cover.
Because there are 50 Farm Girl Blocks
needed for the quilt and there are
45 Farm Girl Blocks in the book
I'm hoping that you will use 5
of the Farm Girl Blocks from
my first Farm Girl Book:)
Remember the small sampler quilt
that I told you about?
I am using twelve 6" blocks from the book.
I made a 6" Mama's Applique
this week to add...
And now I have four!
I'll show you each block that I make
to add to my sampler as I make them:)
The next Farm Girl Block is
on page 86 of the book.
Most grandma's wore aprons and so did mine...
but my mom always did too.
She wore one when she cooked...
cleaned the house and did the laundry.
And she still does!!
My mom taught me and my sisters how to sew.
The first thing that she taught me
how to make was an apron and
I have loved making them ever since:)
I've already showed you the new kitchen
quilt that I'm making using the large
Mix and Match setting from the book.
I need fifteen 12" Farm Girl Blocks
for the quilt and I'm of course
including Mama's Apron.
I have 10 blocks made so far:)
This week I made another block
from my first
to add to my quilt as well.
from page 54 of that book.
This is my small kitchen quilt made with
6" blocks and alternate
Mix and Match Blocks.
I'm making the large kitchen quilt
with no alternate blocks...
all 15 will be a kitchen themed block.
I also made a large Mix and Match Quilt
using 15 of the Mama's Apron Blocks.
Pictured above are all 3 of the large
Mix and Match Quilts that are
in the book but that is just a
jumping off point for you to
create your own...
using any of my Farm Girl Blocks in
any combination that you want to.
As I always say...
"you are the boss of your own quilt!"
I hope you have fun with your
Farm Girl Blocks this week and I hope
that I have planted a few ideas
about more Farm Girl Vintage quilts
and projects you may want to make!!
I'll be back here next week
with two more blocks:)
