Yeehaw! It's #farmgirlfridays

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! Today's the first day of the Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along or #farmgirlfridays with Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet!

For this sew along, we will be sewing the 45 Farm Girl blocks. You can sew the 6" blocks or the 12" blocks and turn any of your blocks into small or large projects - what ever your heart desires! 

We know many of you will be sewing up the Farm Girl Sampler quilt which uses the 6" blocks...

But how about transforming some of your blocks into these adorable potholders with using your backing as binding? Kimberly created a video tutorial to show you how!



Also. check out the other quilt settings Lori created for the book as well.

If you're ready to have some farm girl fun, grab a copy of Farm Girl Vintage, and turn to page 8 to start on our first block Apron Strings! This week's featured blogger is none other than our dear friend, Cindy at Riley Blake Designs

Here are Kimberly and Codi's blocks...
Kimberly used Lori's upcoming collection, Modern Minis, which is coming in June 2015. 
Codi used the Hello Darling collection by Bonnie & Camille (which is coming in August 2015).
Starting next week, we will be sewing two blocks per week, going right down the list in the book and be sure to visit Lori's blog every Friday for additional tips, tricks, and surprises along the wayYou can find the lin up of bloggers on our Page hereDon't forget to bookmark this page on your computer to keep up with us for the duration of the Sew Along.

I got my first block done! You can see my Apron Strings block on my blog here. I'm totally in love with the Farm Girl Vintage book. :)

I'm so excited for the Farm Girl Sew Along. I purchased foam boards and duct tape to make my design boards today. I'm binding them in duct tape rather than fabric because it should be easier, and duct tape is so cute these days!

Will you be opening a Flickr group for this quilt along? I'm not on facebook, twitter or instagram but would love to add any blocks I sew to a group to share with fellow farm girls. :)

Are we allowed to copy and paste the Farm Girls quilt along logo above on our blogs to tell our readers we are participating and link back to you?

I made my Apron Strings Block. It was easy peasy with Lori's directions! Made the 6" and plan to make one in the 12" just so I can mix up the sizes and choose for my sampler. No cookie cutter quilt for me. My Daughter by LOVE #2 Loved my 30's Retro Block. She has a B-day coming up. I think she needs a little Potholder. If I hurry the girls could all have one for Mother's Day.

Love the back-to-front binding tutorial. Always wondered how to do that neatly. Thanks!
