Welcome to week five in the
If you are just joining us...
CLICK on the bold words
above for my first
blog post where I
tell you all about it!
As usual I have three more blocks for you!
This week I worked
from two of my books...
For the 12" Block I made my
Evening Star Block on page 45
of my book Farm Girl Vintage 2.
I used my Farm Girl Vintage
gingham, honeycomb and also my
chicken tracks for the background.
I used my Calico Days Baby Chicks
print for the center square
and the corner triangles:)
12" Evening Star Block
I made my 6" Peas and Carrots Block
from page 53
from my first Farm Girl Vintage Book.
This is another favorite
and easy to make block...
you simply need two red prints
that have good contrast from each other:)
I used my Flea Market Star Flower
and my Prim Circles prints
as well as my
Bee Backgrounds "Clover" print.
in my Sew Your Stash Series
and because my block finishes at 6"...
I decided that it would be fun to
make a block all in reds and to add it
to my Red Sampler Quilt.
I need to make 30 blocks in the
6" size and so I think that
this one fits perfectly:)
It's called Granny Star
and if you want to
add it to your quilt
to watch my tutorial
and also to see a sneak peek
of several more of my Red Sampler Blocks:)
This version uses a print for the
center square instead of the background.
I used my Chicken Tracks
background and 3 reds:
Flea Market Basket Weave
Bee Cross Stitch
Farm Girl Vintage Calico
6" Churn Dash Block
I hope that you will have fun
sewing your blocks this week...
as for me...I'm having a blast:)
I'm really having a good time
choosing fabric and sewing
these blocks for my Red Sampler...
I just want to make more blocks every day!
This photo was taken of me
sitting at my vintage teachers desk
during the photo shoot
for my book Spelling Bee.
Here are a few more photos from the shoot:
Well that's it for today folks!
I've shown you all of my blocks again...
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!
