Old Glory Farm Girl Vintage/Giveaway

 

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!

Old Glory Block

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!

Modern Minis Giveaway
38 - 5" squares, 1 FQ - Yellow Arrows, and
1 - Modern Minis Multi Patchwork Panel

  5. Fabric :) I love the chance to get new fabric without having to feel guilty about not having a project in mind for it (I feel like I need a specific project in mind when I win gift certificates and need to choose the fabric myself!).

  6. Ooh fave giveaway, difficult choice. I think it has to be fabric but sometimes a complete surprise is lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'm not picky, as long as is something I would actually love to have in my greedy little hands! A gift certificate to a modern fabric store wouldn't interest me, neither would a bundle of purple fabric. But you put up some Lori Holt fabric and I'm all over it! Thanks for the fun!

  8. Love your pillows, the quilting thread does make a big difference. And as for Lori's book, I have it and look through it all the time. Her home is so beautiful, it's like a every little girls dream house. I'd love to paint every piece of wood in my home to make it look like hers, but Mr. Podunk likes the WOOD look. What is it with men and WOOD GRAIN. It'll still be there, just under some paint!

  19. I would say that fabric is at the top of my favorite things to win. It might be a fabric I wouldn't normally try and it pushes me out of my comfort zone. Rina

  99. I have such a small bit of everything as I am just getting started with sewing. So right now, I have been loving any and all giveaways that deal with quilting/sewing. That might change if my fabric stash or other tools supply grows.

  100. My favorite giveaways are fabric first because I love the surprise of actually getting the fabric and figuring out how I am going to use it. Then notions, then gift certificates.

  103. I prefer physical prizes to gift certificates as they always seem to be for american shops (I'm British). As most of those have a minimum shipping charge of about $24 to the UK, there's never much (if any) left to spend on fabric.
