Hello Red Sampler folks and happy Monday!
Welcome to week four 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!
I have three more blocks for you!
This week I worked
from three of my books...
For the 12" Block I made my
Great Granny Block on page 5
of my book Great Granny Squared.
I added my Bee Backgrounds Honeycomb
print into this block along with
my Bee Cross Stitch Background.
I also used my Flea Market
Basketweave print for the medium tone
which I'll be using a lot
of as well!
I used my 12 1/2" Trim-It Ruler
for my Great Granny Block:)
12" Great Granny Block
I made my 6" Vintage Pinwheel Block
from page 105
from my book Vintage Christmas.
This block is sew
easy peasy and fun to make...
you simply need two red prints
that have good contrast from each other:)
I used two reds from my stash
and my Bee Backgrounds "Diamonds" print.
I used my Farm Girl Vintage Book
to make the other 6" block.
It's called Churn Dash
and it's on page 19.
This version uses a print for the
center square instead of the background.
I used my Chicken Tracks
background and 3 reds ...
all are from my
Farm Girl Vintage fabric collection.
You may find my
Quick Dash video
on my YouTube Channel
helpful when making this block:)

I hope that you will have fun
sewing your blocks this week...
as for me...I'm having a blast:)
So far I have made four
12" Red Sampler Blocks...
And eight - 6" Red Sampler Blocks
red prints from my stash...
and shopping for a few more to add
to my collection!
Because I made the
Great Granny Block for this week...
I thought that you might want to
see a few photos of my
Great Granny Quilt from the book.
It's made from
20 - 12" Great Granny Blocks
So of course it's just another
setting option for you
if you would want to make 12" blocks only.
Now if you are one of those
that I have heard from over the years
who are completely addicted
to making my 6" blocks...
you could always use this setting
from my first Farm Girl Vintage book.
This quilt setting has 48 - 6" blocks:)
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!
