Farm Girl Update





The Farm Girl Sew Along is almost over. I realized I hadn't posted any new blocks in awhile. These are the blocks I've made since my last post. I will reveal all the blocks when I'm finished in a few weeks. The blocks are 6 1/2 inches square. The two blocks above Old Red Barn and Old Glory.


Here we have Patchwork Pumpkin and Out to Pasture.



This is Pie Cherries and Peas and Carrots.


This is Pinwheels and Postage Stamp.


Next is Scrappy Maple Leaf and Scrappy Strawberry!


Here we have Simple Star and Spring Star.


Lastly, Summer Star and Sunday Morning.

So sad that this is almost over. I feel that my piecing skills have been fine tuned sewing these little beauties. Just in time for the Farmer's Wife 1930's Sew Along! More about that later!!

  1. Lovely blocks Rosemary, 6 1/2" can be a pretty challenging size, especially with the number of pieces in some of those blocks!! Good to see you aren't going to be idle when you've finished this one :-)

    1. Thank, Raewyn! I like the idea of making a few blocks for awhile. I can work on other projects. I tend to keep busy as most quilters do!!

  2. Sweet blocks. I especially love the barn and cherry pie ones. The small size is kind of intimidating for a person with limited patience but I'll really need to try them sometime.

    1. Thank you! I certainly have become better at piecing after working on this project. It's been fun and a learning experience at the same time!

  3. Cute blocks, particularly the strawberry one. My piecing skills leave a lot to be desired lately as I have been mainly FMQ this year. Need to get back to some accuracy.

    1. Thanks, Karin! I wasn't too accurate at piecing when I started this project. I've also concentrated on FMQ. I've been improving! It's a fun way to get back to piecing!
