Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along with Fat Quarter Shop. It's from the new book from Lori Holt titled Farm Girl Vintage and I mean come on . . . a quilt block in the form of an old red barn? How could I not?
The book includes instructions for 45 sampler blocks in two sizes (6" and 12") and I made my barn in the 12" size.
And I spent an inordinate amount of time choosing perfect fabric to fussy cut those barn windows.
Here she is in front of my barn. Ain't she cute?
Now the real question is why doesn't this girl have an entire quilt made with old red barn blocks? The actual cutting and sewing wouldn't take me long. But choosing the fabric for the windows? Well. That could be FUN!
Be sure to check out the sew along. The sheep! The cherries! The pumpkin! And though not included as part of the sew along, Farm Girl Vintage includes a pattern for a tractor.
