Farm Girl Friday SAL - Week 14 - Back on Track!

After many interruptions, I finally caught up with the Farm Girl Vintage Sew-Along schedule - yay! This sew-along unites quilters making the blocks from Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage book. The patterns aren't complicated, but they are detailed; fortunately the instructions are clear and well illustrated. It takes me longer to choose fabric than to make the blocks. My only problem so far is not reading the instructions thoroughly!

I think my favorite block is the Kettle's On! teapot. My daughter collected small teapots many years ago and her collection was ruined when some of her boxes got crushed in a move. I would love to make her a teapot quilt!

This week's blocks are Old Glory and Old Red Barn, pictured in the groups below. My blocks are 6-1/2 inches and made almost entirely with scraps. It is really fun to begin to see how these blocks will look in a quilt!

Mama Hen, Feed and Seed, Haystack, Grandma's Quilt

Furrows, Kettle's On!, Milking Day, Fresh Pears

Old Glory, Kitchen Window, Gingham, Old Red Barn

  1. Well done Linda! Your blocks are glorious! I am waaaay behind with mine!! I am hoping to get caught up this coming week as I have much more time to myself! I do also have lots of other projects to catch up with too, so we'll see!! Have a lovely weekend! :) x

    1. Thank you Christine. :) You are allowed to be behind in your blocks because you've done such a variety of beautiful projects, and I know they keep you busy. Plus you've had a recovering doggy in your house - they are like children!

  2. They are coming along so beautifully! All of mine are still sitting in a nice stack on the shelf, waiting to be sewn together. I just can't find the inspiration to finish it, but looking at everyone else's blocks sure is helping.

  3. Love these blocks Libbda. Especially the pears, the hen and the barn. Adorable. 😊
