Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage

s

 
I don't need another project but I couldn't help myself! There's a quilt along over at A Bee in My Bonnet that started this past Friday. It follows the directions for the blocks shown on the cover of Lori Holt's new book, Farm Girl Vintage. It's a wonderful book. So many gorgeous blocks and so many projects! It's a feast for the eyes!!


The first block is Apronstrings. You can make 2 different sizes, 6 1/2" or 12 1/2". I'll be making the smaller block. The quilt along will be making 2 blocks per week from now on. I'm not sure I can keep up at that pace but I'll do the best I can.

You can also make a pin cushion using the Apronstrings pattern. The directions are on Lori's blog.

I think it's going to be fun. I also love being able to use my stash. There's so many options with this quilt along. I had to join!!

  1. You've made a great start!! I loved this as soon as I saw and thought I'd like to join in but decided the cost of gettting it the book here is a bit high. I'll enjoy watching your progress instead!

    1. The book is great but it was priced high even here. After looking through it, I can see why! It's full of projects and all sorts of blocks. I can look through it for hours!!

Slab Runner Quilted

Here's my slab table runner. I'm enjoying the process of sewing down the binding. It's a great excuse to watch television! ...
