Farm Girl Vintage is a new quilt book by Lori Holt from Bee in My Bonnet. All of the block patterns in the book are things you would find on a farm. Lori gives you block patterns and then several mix and match settings so you can design your own quilt. Lori’s motto is “You are the boss of your own quilt!”
She is hosting a sew-along to promote the new book. Beginning today, she will post each Friday which block or blocks to sew from her book. Click here for more details.
The blocks are supposed to be scrappy which is something that I struggle with…I tend to be too “matchy.”
This week’s block is Apron Strings.
I pulled the 12 different fabrics needed and was not feeling too confident about what I was doing.
I decided after getting the block together that it wasn’t so bad after all.
I probably won’t always post my Farm Girl Fridays update on the appropriate day of the week since I have a day job. I just happened to be off today because we have family in town to attend my daughter’s commencement ceremony tomorrow. She is graduating with her associate’s degree in accounting. Doesn't it seem just like yesterday she was graduating from high school? We could not be more proud of her and the hard work she puts into everything she does.
Enjoy the weekend J
