Farm Girl Friday SAL - Weeks 15 and 16


Every couple of days I see a new quilt pattern I'd like to try, and that makes it so easy for me to fall behind on my blocks for Farm Girl Fridays. I was complaining to Bernie of Needle and Foot about how tedious it is to cut the background for these little blocks, and her response was "Keep going with that Farm Girl Vintage. I am loving it and quilting along with you vicariously. It is adorable." Bernie's blog is so fun to read, she makes the most gorgeous blocks, and she is even writing a quilt pattern. I love the inspiration and encouragement I get from other bloggers!

Out To Pasture

Pumpkin Patch

Peas and Carrots

Pie Cherries

Here are all the small blocks so far

Farm Girl Vintage is my first experience in sampler quilting. Each time I make a block I am amazed at how all the little pieces of fabric are sewn together to create a "picture". Lori Holt's instructions are so well written, and I am more and more impressed with her creative mind. Be sure and check her blog for lots of ideas! Also view other participants' blocks and variations on Instagram #farmgirlfridays.

Hope all of you have a restful weekend!

  1. The cherries and the pumpkin are my favorites this week. So adorable. The combo with the four-patch is also really cute. Seeing them all together, it is just perfect. So, do you get to keep this quilt, or will it be gifted? I don't see how you would part with it.

    Thanks for the mention on your blog. That was so kind. Have a great weekend, Linda!

    1. I am waiting to see how this quilt ends up - whether I use some of the blocks separately or together or in pillows. As to whether it will be gifted or kept - I'll know what to do when the time comes. :)
