Farm Girl Vintage Blocks

Baby Chick, Cool Threads, and Farmhouse Blocks

I started working on the Farm Girl blocks from Lori Holt’s book, Farm Girl Vintage and I just cannot stop. Lori’s instructions and pictures are great. Very easy to follow. I know it looks like I cut the top of my chick’s head off but, according to Lori’s picture, this is the way it supposed to look. After the blocks are sewn together it looks good. Seeing Tierney’s scrappy blocks motivated me as I have a ton of scraps to use. I just hope my choices blend more as I go. As you can tell from the pictures I haven’t trimmed or ‘prettied up’ the blocks. Just made sure the blocks were the correct size.

On another note, I have a  sewing related injury that will keep me away from my sewing for a day or two. I caught my good finger (right hand-index finger) between the heavy duty bar magnets that I use on my long arm bars. I will post a picture of these deadly weapons later.

Happy sewing.
