I've been making a lot of gifts for family members who have birthdays coming up :)
I was able to squeeze in some Farm Girl Vintage sewing, even though my life has been pretty busy lately.
This is the Egg Basket Block.
I used all Lori Holt fabrics, except for the background.
I always used to "hoard" her fabric but now I'm starting to realize that I better use the fabric I love so much!
This is the Farm Flower Block, what a cute name!
I used all of Lori's fabrics again, except for the background.
My favorite part of quilting is choosing the fabric.
I find something really satisfying and rewarding about it.
Truthfully, these 6" blocks are difficult to sew.
These two aren't bad, but a lot of the blocks have such teeny weeny pieces!
I've decided to make the Farm Girl Sampler quilt, so I'm making all of the blocks in the book in a 6 l/2" size.
I'm only 3 blocks behind....
Here's my tractor block, it's 24 l/2" X 28 l/2"!
I still need to embroider the seat and the smoke.
I'm really not sure what I'm going to do with the tractor block, I don't think I want to make 266 4 l/2" pinwheels....
but then again, they are so pretty :)
