Baking and Churning!!




Here are my first 5 blocks for the Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along. The top row are blocks from the first 2 weeks. The bottom row are my new blocks featured this week.


Butter Churn is the top block and Baking Day is on the bottom. They all measure 6 1/2 inches square.

I found the first blocks very challenging. I haven't pieced difficult blocks in a long time! This week's blocks seemed to be easier. I followed the directions and had no problems at all.

I love this little sew along. I'm using fabric from my stash. (Free quilt!) The blocks are so darn cute! I just can't resist! There are 45 blocks that make up this quilt. I have a long way to go! I'm hoping I can keep up!

    1. Some people are making pin cushions out of them too! It's so nice to have different options! It's fun to make these blocks. They're small and don't usually take too long. (Notice I said usually!!?)
