I am so happy to be sewing a bit again.
I have been struggling to find the motivation to sew with all the changes still happening in my life.
In the last 60 days I've sold my office, my office real estate, the school year ended and we have our house in contract. I spend 4 nights a week in Ohio and hours and hours in airports each week.
While I wait, I do english paper piecing,
games on my i-pad if I don't feel the itch to stitch
or swoon over friends' Instagram accounts.
I have been drooling over Lori's instagram
Beelori1 showing her new book, blocks, projects and retreats.
As soon as I had a copy of her book Farm Girl Vintage in my hands,
I was instantly smitten with every - single - project.
There are many simple blocks made extra special with the fabric choices.
I think that the fabric choices are the key to a real farm girl vintage look. I love the way that Lori keeps with a theme and changes the sizes, making bed sized quilts and table runners from the same block designs. I have made 5 of the 12" blocks and all of them sewed together lickety split.
Here is my version of the week 8 block
Farm Fresh Flower.
I used several different low volume ( aka background ) fabrics
