Hi my name is Lisa and I am so happy to have been invited to participate in the Sew Along through the Fat Quarter Shop. Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet is such a talented author, pattern and fabric designer. I love her books and fabric lines with Riley Blake.
Have you been following along with Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage and jumped on the #farmgirlfridays bandwagon? I love seeing the blocks each week on Instagram. The book has a great variety of patterns that are very easy to follow. It is designed to open and lay flat. The photography is so colorful and beautiful. Did I say cute, so very cute! A keeper my friends! Buy yourself a copy at the Fat Quarter Shop!
Living with two guys, my husband and grandson their hangout space is the livingroom. When I told them I was redoing the couch pillows they both told me they wanted to choose the fabrics. No girly fabric for them. The pattern for "Old Glory" has a scrappy look but that didn't get the go ahead with them. Finally we agreed upon the blue and white dot print by Riley Blake and a white center star. The rest of the fabrics are stash. I used Aurifil 50wt. thread for piecing and quilted one pillow front and both backs with Aurifil 40wt. White thread after quilting one in 50wt. Red, I decided I prefered the heavier weight for quilting. As you can see from the picture above they both look the same.
Here you can see the difference! I like when the quilting stands out. But the guys like them both and that is all that really counts. Please the ones you love! So, no pick, pick, pick, this time! (I love my seam ripper)
I have really enjoyed making blocks from Farm Girl Vintage and hope to complete the quilt when things slow down around here. I wanted to have a nice giveaway for all of you who stopped by so I bought some of Lori's new fabric, Modern Minis, and spilt it with you. I even cut the 5" squares and FQ. The panel is my favorite!
