Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along - Week 1

Hello!  Happy Monday and Happy New Year to you!!  I'm starting my new year by joining the lovely ladies at the Missouri Star Quilt Co Forums in the Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along!  If you join us, I'd love to see your blocks!

This is our week 1 block - Apron Strings.

I fretted quite a bit about fabric.  I wasn't happy with my random scraps, and I thought about ordering some fat quarts...then it hit me...I have a huge stack of Flea Market Fancy, plus coordinating solids!  I've been holding onto these gorgeous fabrics for the perfect project to come along...and I think this is it!

All of the blocks have instructions to make either a 6" or 12" block.  I've decided to tackle the 12" blocks to end up with a decent sized quilt in the end.

I'm looking forward to expanding my skill set this year, and I really think this sew along will help!  I'll be sure to share my blocks as I finish them. :)

Have a really great day!
