Since last Friday, I have been hoping that I would have the time to join in the sew-a-long hosted by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet to celebrate the release of her new book called 'Farm Girl Vintage'. The sew-a-long is known as 'Farm girl Fridays' and I just couldn't resist the temptation to join in!
I ordered myself a copy of the book, which arrived at the end of last week.... just in time for the first 'Friday'. However, I was busy on Friday and didn't get the chance to make the first block that day or the next or even the next. Yesterday, I finally made the first block which, is called 'Apronstrings'. As I haven't had a lot of time this week I just made the 6" version.
It is a cute block and goes together quickly. As well as the quilts that appear in the book, Lori is planning to give lots of other suggestions how to use the blocks, including some tutorials. I followed the tutorial she gave last Friday to make this cute little Farm Girl Pincushion with my finished block.
I don't think that I will be able to make all the blocks that will be included in the sew-a-long but, as Lori says, the whole idea is to have fun, learn something new, meet new friends and be happy! Sounds good to me! I'm looking forward to seeing Lori's next block now.... later on today!
