It is my turn to showcase blocks for the Fat Quarter Shop Farm Girl Vintage 2 sew along! (keep on reading for the giveaway!)
This week the blocks are the Happy Horse and the Honey Bee.
The Happy Horse is of course happy because he has such a gorgeous quilted blanket!
I am using my Sweetwater fabric stash for all my blocks – and this Happy Horse is quite the educated horse with all his Elementary fabrics adorning him!
His feed bucket will be getting a handle when I put the blocks together into the quilt…… wondering whether perhaps there should be a cute little birdie sitting on the edge of the bucket too?
Our country property is over 100 years old and the man who built our house, Arthur, loved his Clydesdale horses… we are always finding horseshoes any time we dig in our gardens!
We hang them up around the house and in our Barn (which is built almost where the shed on the right is in the picture above), so Happy Horse wanted to hang out with some of those horseshoes too.
And the second block for this week is the Honey Bee.
We all know the importance of bees and I love watching ours buzzing around the lavender bushes… this one however had stopped for a break on our Rhododendron bush!
And this one was peeking out in front of the Said With Love Quilt Barn!
