Red Sampler Quilt Along - Week Twelve!!

Hello Red Sampler Makers!

Welcome to week twelve 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 promised last week...
I have four 12" Red Sampler Blocks
 for you today:)

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

And the first book that
 I used is Vintage Christmas.
I made my 12"  
Stained Glass Block on page 86.

If you have not made this block before...
when you look at the directions
 you will see that I use my 
easy shortcut method to make each of the
9 quarter square triangles 
that make up the block.
Because we are sewing scrappy 
you will end up with enough to make 2 blocks:)

Of course I just need one for my quilt 
but the other block would make a 
cute pillow or you could give the extra 
to a friend who is also
 doing this quilt along...
and that's exactly what I did!

I used my 4 1/2" Trim-It Ruler 
when trimming up the 
quarter square triangles...
easy peasy!

Next up we have my 
Mama's Applique Block 
from page 85 of my book
Farm Girl Vintage 2

I used a few prints from my new fabric collection called STITCH 
that will be here 
in just a few short weeks!

For the next 12" block this week
I made my Wool Star Block 
from page 107
of my Vintage Christmas Book

12" Wool Star Block

And last for this week 
but not least is the 12" 
Cool Threads Block made from page 20
of my book Farm Girl Vintage.

I hope you enjoy making the
four 12" Red Sampler Blocks
 for this week:)

I think they were a lot of fun to sew...
and I had a great time 
choosing the fabrics for each one:)

And so now with these new blocks 
this is what we have so far...
14 - 12" Red Sampler Blocks
23 - 6" Red Sampler Blocks

As a reminder...
for the setting that I'm using
(cover quilt from Farm Girl Vintage 2)
 I need 20 - 12" Blocks
30 - 6" Blocks

For the next week post 
 I'm going to be making  
four more 12" Blocks:)

Here's a few photos of my 
Farm Girl Tractor Quilt 
from my Farm Girl Vintage Book.
The quilt is called PLOW DAY and 
I'm thinking it's an appropriate photo 
for this week while we 
"PLOW" through making our 
Red Sampler Blocks!

I'll meet you right back here 
next week with more Red Sampler fun:)

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

Hi Lori! We just moved to a 1904 farmhouse and are surrounded by acres of winter wheat and growing corn. For the past week I’ve been watching farmers plow the fields of wheat. I loved your reference to “plowing through” as I am trying to set up my new sewing room. I can’t wait to get back to these red blocks! Thanks for the fun SAL and have a wonderful week!

I think you are awesome,haven't made a full size quilt yet but have made smaller things like pot holders, surprised secret sister with them. Waiting for your new book to come out

I am so in love with all your books Lori! They are well used! Im a bit behind but do plan to catch up!
I try to guess from week to week which block your going to use.
