Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along Prep! - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along Prep!

Who’s ready for #farmgirlfridays starting in just two weeks! We received a lot of questions regarding the Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along  with Lori Holt of Bee In my Bonnet and here is a little bit more information about what YOU need to get started.

When is it?
The Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along will begin Friday, May 1, 2015 and last until Friday, October 9, 2015. We’re calling it #farmgirlfridays ! Be sure to visit Lori’s blog every Friday for piecing tips and her adorable blocks. We will also have two featured bloggers each week showcasing their Farm Girl block. 

What are you sewing? 
We are sewing all of the 45 Farm Girl blocks from the Farm Girl Vintage book, and every Friday, we will sew two blocks, going right down the list in the book. We will be sewing the 6″ blocks!
What do I need? 
Of course you need a copy of Farm Girl Vintage on hand. We also teamed up with Lori to create an exclusive Farm Girl Vintage Fat Quarter Bundle that Lori hand selected for you. If you’re hankering for scrappy but don’t know how to go about it, this bundle is a great way to dive in. These bundles will be arriving in 2 weeks and we only have limited supply.

For background fabric, Lori recommends the Swiss Dots fabrics by Riley Blake (how can you go wrong with these adorable dots).
For the background fabric requirements, we recommend 4 1/2 – 5 yards total for the entire Farm Girl Vintage Sampler Quilt.  This includes the 2 1/4 yards called for sashing and borders in the book and should give you plenty of cutting room.

  1. I'm super excited for this! I'd like to order a bundle, but I noticed that I couldn't purchase it yet. You mentioned there will only be a limited supply. How could I reserve one? Thank you!

  2. This is super exciting – can't wait for the sew along to start. I even 'stepped out' and ordered some swiss dot for the background of my future Farm Girl Blocks.

  3. I just wanted to thank you for such a well written, beautiful book. I got mine in the mail last week and it is hands-down the nicest quilt book I have ever purchased. Love that it is spiral bound and all the pictures are great! Well done!

  4. I'm very excited for the Farm Girl Fridays! If you buy the Farm Girl Fat Quarter Bundle will you have enough to make the 12" blocks?
