Two Sew Alongs


I usually don't take part in 2 sew alongs at the same time. However, I'm nearing the end of the Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along. I've finished the 48 blocks. As you can see, I've put together 2 rows. This process is taking quite a bit of time. I've been taking my time deciding what color fabric squares to use between the blocks. Even once the rows are sewn together, I'll have to piece a border made of flying geese. I just bought the fabric needed for that. Anyways, I'm nearing the end but it will still take some time!


The Farmer's Wife 1930's Sew Along just started this week. We've made 3 blocks. So far, they've been easy and rather quick. The third block on the right is block #8, Aunt. I'm really loving this fabric. From now on, we'll only be making 2 blocks per week.

I have fabric and pattern all ready to start a new project but I'd like to finish Farm Girl Vintage first. I'll also need to prepare another quilt top to be machine quilted. I just need to find the time! Too bad I have to work, cook, clean, etc.! Too much quilting to do!!

    1. Thanks, Karin! The Farm Girl Vintage quilt used my fabric stash but I actually bought repro 1930's fabrics for the Farmer's Wife quilt.
