Farm Girl Vintage - Quilty Barns

My Quilty Barn quilt is quilted!
I just need to bind it, but my Bernina is in for repair and I don't really want to attach the binding without my awesome walking foot.
Lori Holt from Bee in my Bonnet had a free Quilty Barn Along, about 2 years ago, on her blog.
Now you can find the barn pattern in her new book, 
Farm Girl Vintage.

I just love my quilt, it's so colorful and happy.
I finished it 2 years ago, and it has hanging on the railing in my sewing room all this time!

I remember sewing all the blocks, and the sashing pieces remind me of all the sewing projects I made for loved ones.

I love Tasha Noel's fabric, the little country girl hanging up her socks, and some of Lori Holt's fabric, a quilt  I made for my granddaughter Reagan, when she was born :)

The Be Happy fabric I used for the barn door is from Sweetwater.

Some more of Tasha Noel's fabric on the roof, and I used the butterfly fabric at the bottom, to make a Smartie Girl Book Bag for one of my daughters.

I absolutely adore the back, it's a Heather Ross print.
I thought the busy little bees and the clover went along well with the barn theme.

There is no way that I can gift this quilt, there are too many memories in it for me, and I spent about a year making it, not including the 2 years it hung on my railing, lol!
Thanks for stopping by and letting me share :)
