Farm Girl Vintage quilt along - sewing


I spent most of yesterday behind my sewing machine which is such a rare and welcomed treat these days.  I am joining Lori Holt over at Bee in my Bonnet in her Farm Girl Vintage quilt along and am running a bit behind.  I started late so I am actually playing catch up and any chance I get I try to finish a block to add to my stack.

Her book is adorable with so many cute vintage looking blocks.  The directions are easy to follow and most of the blocks have been very easy to put together.  I am trying to work with fabric I already have in my stash but must admit that I've made one or two (or five) trips to the quilt store to round out my selection.

I've been sharing them as I go on instagram but I am hoping to line them up and show them to you here soon.

I don't know if I shared with you that I gave up my studio when my daughter moved back in a few months ago and claimed a corner of the living room to craft in (that's a whole other post) but last week I reneged on my selfless move and have restaked a claim to my craft space upstairs.

This pretty wall of inspiration is part of what pulled me back in.  I'll show you both spaces in the days to come.

So that's it for me...what's new with you?

xo, Patty


  1. Patty, Your banner fabrics are so cheery. I like your craft board/space. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  2. Oh, I want to be as an accomplished a quilter as you are. Your piece work is so pretty and your banner is a happy addition.

  3. I used to sew all the time and makes gifts for everyone, small quilts, wall hangings, etc. but kind of got away from it when I started papercrafting. I do really miss sewing and keep telling myself I'm going to get back into it. I did get my first real quilt done (full bed sized) last winter, and have a king sized quilt that I started 10 years ago, that I would like to finish! I love the colors in your quilt squares.

  4. What a lovely day! I spent yesterday playing taxi for the family.

  5. Asking a person to give up her sanity room is too much! ;) glad you got your space back. You are clearly making the most of it!

  6. I just love your color choices. You really have the touch.

  7. So pretty, the color mix is perfect. I want to join this quilt along it looks like great fun :)

  8. I just love your eye for color! Very pretty! Kit

  9. Boy you sure have a artistic eyes for all you sew. I like to see them.
