Farm Girl Friday SAL - Week 17


It's Farm Girl Friday, and here are two more blocks to add to the collection! This week's blocks are Pinwheels and Postage Stamp. They were both easy to assemble and sew. Each block is 6 inches.


I'm not big on pinwheels, but I have to admit these are pretty cute.


Postage Stamp is a great stash buster! Individual blocks are 1-1/2 inch squares.


I almost have enough for a small quilt. I love the look of the blocks grouped together.

Be sure and visit Lori's blog for neat variations of how to use the blocks! Also view other participants' blocks and variations on Instagram #farmgirlfridays. You can access the schedule by clicking the Farm Girl Vintage icon in the sidebar.


"In other news" I am in the process of quilting the Little Joys quilt. I made a scrappy binding for it, so I'm excited to see how it all comes together. A little late to the party on the Little Joys Quilt-Along, but hey, I'm still ahead of the game on Christmas projects!

And yes, I was still distracted this week. This gorgeous quilt by Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation and this book, Modern Rainbow by Rebecca Bryan are my latest obsessions. Sigh.

Have a fun weekend!

  1. So cute when you get them all together! I can't wait to see what you do with them; do you think you'll finish them all and make one big quit, or a few small-ish ones? One thing is certain about these, there are SO many possibilities.

    1. Thanks Melanie! There certainly are a lot of possibilities - Lori shows a bunch of them on her blog, and I always think "why didn't I think of that?" ;) I really haven't decided yet. I'm thinking of using the big blocks for pillows.

  3. I love scrappy bindings and I suspect it will be perfect on your Christmas quilt. The postage stamp block is adorable. Teeny, tiny squares!

    1. I hope I like the scrappy binding Bernie. Thanks for the compliments. The squares were pretty small but not as hard to work with as I anticipated. :)
