Farm Girl Vintage Quilt Along - Weeks 6 & 7

Hello!  I feel like I'm pulling back a curtain of fog and sickness and finally sticking my head back out into the real world.  Whew!  I'm glad to be over all the crud that's going around, and to finally get to show you my newest Farm Girl Vintage blocks!

I must admit...I was hesitant about this first one.  See, it's called "Canning Season", and I was nervous about having "canning" appropriate fabrics to show off the pretty jars.  I kept seeing these adorable blocks with fabrics with actual fruits and veggies on them.  Well, you can see I got over my nerves and picked these pretties.

I'm really happy with how it came's so silly to compare our work and fabrics with others.

The Week 7 block was pretty fun.  It's called Chicken Feet and features lots of half-square triangles.  I decided to pull out some solids for this one, and I'm so glad I did.  I like the contrast of the prints and solids.

And here they are...what I have done so far!  I'm running out of room to get a good pic of all the 12" blocks.  In a couple of weeks, I may have to start breaking them up.

This has been a fun journey...I can't wait to work on next week's block!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have an awesome day. <3

  1. A Canning Jar quilt has been on my To Do List since 2016. This year is my year of UFO's, so 2018 is when I plan to make the Canning Jar quilt! Thank you so much for your inspiration! After seeing your close up of your blocks, I'm confident I can make this! I'm pinning your quilt to remind me of this goal! Thank you for sharing! :)
