Farmgirl Vintage


Farmgirl Vintage is almost done! That flying geese border took me such a long time to make. I had to make 106 units. It took me about one month. I decided to paper piece them. I was afraid I'd get messy (lazy) and not make them very well. Anytime I have to make a huge amount of anything, I can get sloppy. Each long side took 30 units. The shorter sides took 23 each. I feel they came out perfectly since I took my time. I would only make 15 at a time. Thanks to other projects, this seemed to work out the best for me.


I went to my local quilt shop to try and find fabric for the last border I have left. I wanted a golden yellow with a little bit of red in it. I found the perfect fabric! The minute I saw it, I had to buy it!


I put the border fabric along one of the border edges. I really like it! So glad I bought it! I need to wash and iron it first. I can't believe this quilt top is almost complete! It's such a fun quilt. Most of these fabrics came from my stash so I'll consider it a "free" quilt also!

Doily and Slabs

I just finished my knit doily. I think it came out pretty good. I didn't like sewing on the border but it wasn't that bad. This...
