We’ve sewn right through our first month of the Farm Girl Vintage 2 Quilt Along! It’s been quite a ride and there is still a way to go! We’re sew excited to see your progress. There are 45 blocks of the Farm Girl Vintage 2 Sampler Quilt and we are 12 in! This much-anticipated sequel to Farm Girl Vintage features 6″ and 12″ quilt blocks, inspired by Lori Holt’s rural roots. She has also designed 13 new projects, including quilts, pillows and a pincushion that use these cute-as-can-bee blocks!
We covered Week 1 last month and now we’re catching up on blocks 3 through 12.
Week 2: Blocks 3 and 4
Quilty staffer Teresa sewed up Barn Cat and Bright Zinnia! If you’re making the Farm Girl Vintage 2 Sampler Quilt, you’ll want to make these two blocks at 12″.
Week 3: Blocks 5 and 6
Teresa sewed Busy Beehive and Cheerful Tulips as 6″ blocks. Sew sweet!
Week 4: Blocks 7 and 8
During Week 4, Teresa sewed up quite the harvest. The Corn and Tomatoes block and Cold Watermelon are absolutely delicious.
Week 5: Blocks 9 and 10
The Cross Stitch block is such a sweet acknowledgment of our other favorite past-time! Teresa also sewed up Curious Crow.
Week 6: Blocks 11 and 12
Daddy’s Tractor and Evening Star blocks were a challenging and fun way to wrap up this month’s blocks.
Cream of the Crop
Without further ado, let’s see some project inspiration for blocks 3-12. These can be saved for the Sampler Quilt or made into a quick and easy pillow or mini quilt – perfect for the busy holiday season and last-minute gifts!
About the Quilt
The Farm Girl Vintage 2 Sampler features all 45 blocks, and room to add a few of your favorite blocks from other Lori books! We are offering a Farm Girl Vintage Sampler 2 Quilt Kit that includes over 28 yards of Farm Girl Vintage fabric for the 88.5″ x 95.5″ quilt top and binding. A Backing Set is available also.
Sew Along Schedule
The Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along starts today and runs through Friday, April 3, 2020. Each month on our blog, we’re sharing Farm Girl Vintage 2 blocks, along with additional settings and projects found in Farm Girl Vintage 2. We’ve invited quilters to make the blocks for the Sampler Quilt or any of the other inventive projects found in the book.
The goal is to make two blocks each week so that you’ll be ready to show off your finished quilt on April 24, 2020. We invite you to join us in sharing your progress with #FarmGirlFridays! Be sure to visit Lori’s blog, Bee in My Bonnet, and Instagram every Friday for piecing tips and her adorable blocks.
