Welcome to Farm Girl Fridays! (and a giveaway!!)
Farm life for me this week has included an over abundance of eggs… our five new girls have all started laying! And our lilacs have burst into flower… the smell is just divine!
So, back to quilting….
Yay! Yippee! and Yeehaw!
The first sew along was such fun (and I made my Farm Girl Vintage tractor quilt top during it) that I couldn’t resist joining in with this sew along too.
Fat Quarter Shop will be posting on their Facebook and Instagram each Friday with the hashtag #farmgirlfridays two blocks every week starting at the beginning of the book. And once a month on the Jolly Jabber Blog FQS will be highlighting blocks from bloggers around the world (and I will be showcasing mine in February 2020!)
This week’s blocks are the Autumn Pumpkin and Baked with Love.
So what I am going to be making? So glad you asked!
I am going to be making my version of the Busy Bee Flower Farm Quilt with the great ute (well, truck in US terminology!) surrounded by most of the sampler blocks in 12″ size. This week’s blocks didn’t make the cut for my quilt, so I will be showing my first block next week… the Barn Cat!
Do you want to join in and sew along with everyone?
I am giving away a copy of the Farm Girl Vintage 2 book to one person (who, sorry to all our overseas friends, needs to live here in Australia because of our horrendous postage costs!) who comments here on this blog post with what thing about farm life they like the most (or the idea of the most).
And if you are subscribed to my newsletter (sign up form in the footer of each page on the website) there might be an extra goodie added in to the winner’s package!
So don’t forget to post your blocks on Instagram with #farmgirlfridays or post in the Said With Love Sew Along Group on Facebook!
Have a great week and see you next Friday with my first blocks and the winner of the giveaway!
