Oh, hello there … I’m so glad you stopped by!
It’s #farmgirlfriday and I am one of this weeks guest bloggers.
It has been so fun sewing along farm girl style with Lori of Bee in My Bonnet & The Fat Quarter Shop. This week we are making the Sunny Sunflower block just in time to add to our cozy cottage fall decor.
Start by choosing some of your favorite fabrics …… and letting your imagination run wild. #becreative
Tiger Lily fabric by Heather Ross + Farm Girl Vintage blocks = Quilty Love
You can use different fabric combinations with the Sunny Sunflower block for a different look everytime. Fun right?
INSPIRATION IDEA #1: Not only can you use a variety of fabrics to change the look of each block….. you can also pick out 3 more of your favorite farm girl vintage blocks and make a mini quilt like Jedicraftgirl and I did during our quilt retreat in August.
Sewing with friends is priceless and creating this farm girl mini to remember our time together is the icing on the cupcake.
INSPIRATION IDEA #2: With a new stack of fabrics, I made two of the 12″ blocks with a 1 ½” sashing in between …..for a small Sunny Sunflower runner.
They really make sweetest homemade gifts!
If you haven’t picked up your copy of Lori Holt’s Farm Girl Vintage book yet ….. no worries, it’s never too late to start sewing and this book is packed with lots of cute projects to choose from.
Be sure to stop by Lori’s blog, and Fat Quarter Shop’s Farm Girl Vintage sew-along page for more inspiration. Thank you Fat Quarter Shop and Lori for inviting me to join in on the quilty fun! #farmgirlfridays
