Farm Girl Vintage

This is my little 6" apron strings block.
I made it into a cute pincushion, just like Lori taught us on her blog, here :)

I made a 12" Apron Strings block, using scraps from my scrap bin.

I quilted my 12" block into a pretty table topper.

The orange back is so happy! 
The fabric is Lecien Flower Sugar.

I really love the Autumn Star block, I used  Lori Holt's Vintage Happy fabric. I didn't use her fabric, I bought some of my own, lol!

I also baked a chocolate mint cake for my grandson Bridger who will be turning 10 years old this month. 
I tried to make it as masculine as I could.
Do you think it looks suitable for a boy?

The backing fabric is by Michael Miller, but I don't know the name of the line of fabric because it was a fat quarter and there wasn't a selvage.
The little vintage bit is baking a cake with his puppy's help.

Here's a closeup of the jigsaw quilting, for the birthday cake banner.

I'm visiting my mom in Montreal right now, so next week I'll share some photos with you :)
