Vintage Quilt Along

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!

    • I think you’re right, Aby! The tiny blocks are just challenging enough, without being frustrating! And I like the extra little projects along the way! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love it! I’ve not made the pincushion yet, but need to, and could probably raid my mother in law’s cabinet (upon request, of course) to find a little pedestal upon which to display it. I like how yours is placed up against that vintage’s’ lace curtain as a backdrop 🙂

    (Now back to finishing my FGV block 2!)
