Have you seen “Farm Girl Vintage” yet?
It’s a quilt book, written by Lori Holt, over at Bee in my Bonnet.
In honor of her book release, the fabulous Ms. Holt is hosting a quilt along.
I was on the fence about participating,
until I started seeing the cuteness of these blocks.
Last Friday, she even gave away a free pattern on her blog for the adorable pincushion!
I tell ya, I haven’t been this gone about a quilt pattern
or fabric collection in quite a while!
The vintage-y cuteness just got ahold of me!
Incidentally, the tiny pedestal my pincushion rests on was
also Ms. Holt’s idea! She used a thrifted plate and candleholder.
I found a vintage plate with curled edges at Goodwill,
and the candleholder is from the dollar store!
A little epoxy-type glue, and pinning is elevated to a new level!
Check out Bee in my Bonnet for lots more information, patterns, a link to buy the book, etc.
And, if you’re playing along on social media,
you can use the hashtag #farmgirlfridays to see other people’s projects and be social!.
Happy Vintage Sewing!
