Red Sampler Quilt Along - Week Three!!


Hello peeps and happy Monday!

It's already time 
for week three in the 

And I'm having sew much fun!!

Are you ready to add 
three more blocks this week?

This week I worked 
from two of my books...

For the 12" Block I made my 
Cozy Star Block on page 24 
of my book Vintage Christmas.

I added my Bee Backgrounds Penmanship 
print into this block and 
used my Farm Girl Vintage gingham:)
As usual I'll be using it 
a lot because it works so well!

I made two 6" blocks from my 
Farm Girl Vintage 2 Book.

New Baby Quilt Block is on page 103
Starry Nights Block is on page 126.

I'm not sure if you have been
 watching my Sew Your Stash Series
 tutorials on my YouTube Channel...
 but you may find them very helpful 
as I show my tips and tricks 
on making my blocks accurately
 when small pieces are involved.

I seriously love how my 
Red Sampler Blocks 
are looking together:)

By the time I'm finished 
I will have made 
20 - 12" Blocks and 
30 - 6" blocks 
for the Farm Girl Vintage 2 Sampler 
quilt setting that I am using.

But just remember...
like I told you
 in my week one blog post:
 If you are not comfortable with 
making both 6" and 12" blocks 
you can always make all of 
your blocks in my 12"size and
 then use any of the settings
 in my books for 12" blocks only:)

"You're the BOSS of your own quilt!"

I really enjoy the process of 
choosing red fabrics for each block.

Most of the fabrics are my designs 
but I throw in others here and there
 because I have those in my stash too!

 I sure do love using the
 fabrics in my scrappy stash baskets...
and because of this sew along
I've taken the opportunity
to add a few more
 red prints to my baskets:)

I had an idea to show you 
a picture or two from the
 different photo shoots from my books.

All of the photography 
takes place here in my home.
Kimberly and the crew from 
It's Sew Emma come here to 
Salt Lake for a week 
and take as many pictures as they can
 while I style the photos:)

This one above is from my 
first Farm Girl Vintage Book
 and I loved it so much 
that I chose it for the back cover:)

I'm sure that you can 
figure out all on your own 
that this one is from my 
Vintage Christmas Book.

It's my Christmas Eve Quilt
 on page 168 and it's one 
that I put on my bed 
each year for Christmas.
It's made from 
25 - of my 12" Blocks.

This is just one of many 
12" Block setting options in my books
 and I hope all of these settings 
provide you with inspiration
for a very long time:)

Well that's it for today folks!
I've shown you my blocks...
now it's time for you to show me yours!

Go ahead and use the hashtag
when posting on your social media:)

I'll meet you right back here 
next week with 3 more blocks!

P.S. Here is a list of 
each week's blog post 
for this sew along so far:

Lori, you just have the sweetest quilts and THE BEST sense of styling. I’m part way through FGV1 and every time I finish a block (6”) I’m just so happy. I have to stare at and appreciate it for a good amount of time before I move on. Your instructions are so perfect and easy to follow. I honestly I think your instructions have increased my ability to read other patterns. Thank you!

Beautiful.. I am a little behind. Just pulled my fabric this morning.
Hope to catch all up this week!

Thank you so much for all your new ideas. I’m really enjoying making the red blocks. I was late starting but getting caught up.. This was a fun and wonderful idea. I love all the blocks and every quilt you make is awesome. Putting together your blocks from all the different books is like Puzzle therapy for me. Thank you Lori

I used the same layout for a t shirt quilt
I made for a childhood friend of her son’s sports tees from childhood through his time in the NFL! It was so easy to follow and made use of almost every shirt!!! Thank you!!!
