Farm Girl Vintage weekend

This weekend was a good time for working hard on my Farm Girl Vintage blocks. First of all it was really humid outside so that keeps me indoors. And second, my husband was playing in a 2-day golf tournament - which occupied most of the approx 36 hours he was even home this weekend. 

With the help of my chief quilt inspector, I made 5 blocks this weekend: the bumble bee, baby chick, apron strings, summer star, and corn & tomatoes. The corn & tomatoes block is the one from the book, but I've also downloaded the block with an ear of corn and 2 tomatoes. Maybe I'll get that block made this week along with the kitty block I also downloaded. 

Both sizes of every single block are done. 29 of each size!  I'm impressed that I've managed to stay focused on that. 


  1. Your blocks are wonderful! I'm doing Farm Girl Vintage as a block of the month at my local quilt shop. I'm really enjoying it. I'm impressed that you've done both six and twelve inch blocks for all the designs! Some of those six inch blocks have tiny little pieces. Really beautiful.

    And your helper is gorgeous! Looks just like a sweet cat I used to have. We used to call her my velcro because she was always stuck to my side.

  2. Your blocks are so pretty! It sounds like you enjoyed a mini stay-cation!

  3. Great to see the blocks all together. They will made a great quilt in both sizes. Well done.

  4. I'm super impressed! I have my last two cut out. Here's hoping I can get them sewn up this week.
