|My 6" 'Apronstrings' Block which I made into a pincushion|
In the end, I decided that I shouldn't combine the birthday swap blocks which I wrote about in my last post, with the 'Farm Girl Vintage' blocks. I also think I am going to make a 12" version of the 'Apronstrings' block that was the first 'Farm Girl Vintage' block.

Once I had made my decision, I started thinking which blocks I should make for the three June birthdays and, before I knew where I was, all my sewing time had been used up making the three June birthday blocks and there was no time left for the 'Farm Girl Vintage' blocks. So I'm going to show you the June birthday blocks instead!
|June: Pinwheels (Pink): Claire|
Now my 'Farm Girl Vintage' blocks will have to wait until next week.... I will have to catch up all of the blocks I have missed, including the ones that should be started today. That will be four blocks in total, so I should have them all caught up by next Friday!

I have a busy weekend ahead with family, so I won't be getting near my sewing machine but, I have prepared a little hand stitching project just in case there is a spare minute here and there!
Hope you all enjoy a happy weekend!
Oh Christine I have missed corresponding with you!!! You have been doing so beautifully and I just can't belive that I can't join you in some of them as I am going through some big life changes (job change, moving and such) I can't even find time to comment. But it has been so exciting to see your accomplishments even a free pattern how wonderful! Those birthday swap blocks are adorable too...Thank you for being some sunshine in my days with your blog postsReplyDelete
Hello Shelly.... how wonderful to hear from you and thank you so much for your sweet comments! I hope you have more time to sew and blog again soon and that all goes well for your move and new job! How exciting for you!! Have a lovely week! :) xDelete
Christine I haven't done my Farm Girl Vintage blocks - I just got my book a couple days ago. :) Your blocks are so pretty. Do you think there will come a month when there aren't so many birthdays? ;) Cute pattern for that bit of hand stitching you "might" have time for - Gail Pan? Can't wait to see it finished. Have a great weekend with your family!ReplyDelete
Hello Linda! I just read your post about receiving your book! As you see, I am behind with the blocks too.... we can have fun catching up together!! We did have a lovely weekend and you'll have to wait a little bit longer to see the embroidery but, you are right about it being Gail Pan! Have a lovely week! :) xDelete
They all look very pretty, I hope you get some time to do a bit of sewing over the weekend! xxReplyDelete
Thank you Janet! We had a lovely weekend and it was a long drive, so I did get some stitching done in the car!! :) xDelete
Spare moment? Does a stitcher ever have any spare moments? I know I always have lots of projects on the go to fill in those little moments (and then some!). Your June blocks area all so pretty - my favourite is the blue one.ReplyDelete
Hello Mary Anne! Of course, there is never a spare moment for a stitcher... they are all filled with stitching!! My favourite block was the blue one too!! Have a lovely week! :) xDelete
Very nice block for the birthday girls - they will love them! Will love to see the hand stitching when it is finished.ReplyDelete
Thank you!! It was a nice weekend and the drive was a long one, so I did get most of the stitching done but, it is not quite ready to show you....! Have a lovely week! :) xDelete
Love the birthday quilt blocks! You do amazing work. Have a great weekend.ReplyDelete
Thank you Cathy! It was a lovely weekend and I did manage to squeeze some stitching in on the journey!! :) xDelete
I wonder what that little hand stitched project will be? I am looking forward to seeing it. The June blocks you've made are very pretty.ReplyDelete
