March’s Farm Girl Blocks Sew-Along

Dawn from sewyouquilt2 is keeping us motivated to finish our Lori Holt Farm Girl Vintage blocks.  She selects two blocks each month for us to finish piecing.

March’s blocks were the Old Barn and the Pears.  Since I had already made the pear block I chose to make Old Glory in its place.

When I first started Lori Holt’s sew-along last year, I chose to make the 6 ½” version of these blocks.  They are a challenge for me as there are so many small pieces.  My blocks are not finishing a consistent 6 ½”.  As a matter of fact, they aren’t finishing a consistent ANY size.  I imagine that I can come up with enough that will work for a wall hanging or table topper and the rest will make cute potholders….

Thanks to Dawn for keeping us focused on the farm 😊

A Quilting Life Mystery BOM – March

Earlier this week Sherri of A Quilting Life released her third block pattern for her mystery block of the month.

This is truly a mystery as we weren’t officially given fabric requirements.  Sherri did respond to my question indicating that a fat eighth would be enough prints.  I’m hoping that I have enough of the background fabric I’m using.

Here is my block…

You can find Sherri’s post with the instructions by clicking here.

Have a great weekend!
