Farm Girl Friday Blocks on a Monday

Farm Girl Fridays is a fun sew-along hosted by Lori of Bee in My Bonnet.  Her book Farm Girl Vintage is chock full of adorable blocks that can be arranged in several different quilt settings.

I already got behind on my blocks but I spent the weekend getting caught up.

Week #2

Autumn Star Block

Baby Chick Block

Week #3

Baking Day Block

Butter Churn Block

The butter churn block gave me a fit!  I will do this one over and use the first one to make a potholder.

To see week #1's block click here.

I expected to have the Sailor’s quilt back from the long-armer…but not yet.  Hoping it comes in the next day or so because I leave for San Diego on Friday and need to bind and label it before then.  The crystal ball in my sewing room tells me that I am likely to get behind on my Farm Girl Friday blocks again.  That is OK, I am having a great time with them.  Super cute blocks and I am learning some new techniques.

Hope you all have a great week!

I love them all....hard to pick a favorite! I hope the quilt cones back in time for your trip. Prayers for safety and an as easy a farewell as possible. I'll be thinking of you! Enjoy!

Hugs and Prayers, Vicky

Eek...your long armer is cutting it close. Hope you get it back today!!! The chick block is so cute and I love your fabric choices for all of the blocks.

The Butter Churn block would probably give me a fit making one too. Too easy for things to go wrong. The baby chick block is a cute one with its embroidered feet.

All of these blocks are adorable!
Hope you quilt comes back quickly to complete.
Safe Travels and have a wonderful time!

I had problems with the Butter Churn block too. My Flying Geese did not turn out well at all with Lori's method, so I used my Fit To Be Geese ruler to do them. Your blocks are very cute.

I love the look of those blocks too and I think I can no longer resist this QAL. I'm buying my fabric today!

They're all adorable, Jeanna! And really, the best part is that you're learning new techniques, not to mention having a few cute potholders (wink)!
