Hello and welcome to the
Grab your book
And your Farm Girl Vintage Fabric...
And let's make some Farm Girl Blocks!
Our first Farm Girl Block
for this week is
on page 127 of the book.
I just love this block...
and I designed it with a few possibilities
in mind besides just the sampler quilt:)
One thing is...
I think it's the sweetest block
for a pillow.
I'm going to make this very block
into one and put it on the
bench in my kitchen:)
Speaking of my kitchen...
here is another look at the
kitchen quilt that I made using the
Small Mix and Match pattern
on page 156 of the book.
I love making projects both
large and small to decorate my kitchen
in my farmhouse cottage style.
The kitchen is the heart of the home!!
I've been showing you the new
kitchen quilt that I'm making with the
12" Farm Girl Blocks...
And this week I made another block to add.
is on page in the first book
I think its going to be a cute block to add!
I used several pinks and corals and
greens from my fabric collections.
By the way...
this is my Scrappy Strawberry Blocks
in both red and pinks.
It's made into a quilt using the
County Fair setting
on page 112 of the first book.
back to the other idea
that I had for my Strawberry Jam Block.
I made this strawberry from
the label on the jar.
When you make just the strawberry
from the 12" Block it is a 6" block.
I added 1 1/2" strips for the borders.
Then I made 3 more!!
I see a new strawberry quilt in my future!!
*Notice that when I added the borders
I added the sides first
(cut 1 1/2" x 6 1/2")
on two of the blocks...
and the top and bottom borders
first on the other two.
Then I added the final borders
on all four blocks
(cut 1 1/2" x 8 1/2")
The reason that I did this is so that
when the blocks are sewn together
it adds an interesting design
in the aqua scrappy strips that
become the sashing for the quilt:)
Our next Farm Girl Block is
TENDING THE GARDEN
on page 131 of the book.
I styled this after the many vintage
watering cans that I collect and use:)
I made another 12" block
from different Farm Girl prints...
And added it to my
BUSY BEE FLOWER FARM QUILT
The pattern for this quilt
is on page 144 of the book.
You can customize your own quilt
to match your own farm:)
Well that's it for this week quilty peeps...
thanks so much for joining me on the farm!
I'll be right back here next week:)
