Farmgirl Vintage Update FMQ


I finally started to quilt Farmgirl Vintage. I decided to quilt each block individually. I just couldn't do an allover pattern when each block is so unique. I've managed to quilt 4 blocks so far. This first picture is a variation of a bear paw. It was called Chicken Foot Block. I quilted arcs in the triangles and loops in the squares. I didn't decide ahead of time. I just sat down and tried to figure out what would work best.


I meandered around the chick in the Baby Chick Block. I outlined the heart as well as her little wing. I felt a little feather would be cute in her wing!!


 

I outlined the barn and windows in the Old Red Barn Block. I made little loops inside each patch and quilted clamshells in the background. 


I outlined each patch in Spring Star Block and meandered in the background.

These 4 blocks took very little time to quilt since they're only 6 inches square. I was planning on quilting more today but it's so warm. I sat outside and got some fresh air. It actually feels like summer! I couldn't resist since I'm working the next 3 days. I'm hoping to post more quilted blocks soon!!

  3. Sometimes it's best not to over-thing/plan and just sit down and DO IT!!!! Your blocks are lovely and capture the essence of what fun they were to make. Looking forward to seeing more.......

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