I know I’m about a year behind on the Farm Girl Vintage quilt craze. But when I decided to make a quit for my mom, I knew this had to be the one!
When I first got the book, I flipped through to pick out what I thought she might like. I was really impressed with the number of blocks in the book and all the different layout options. It felt like a choose your own adventure book!
Although there were so many great blocks to choose from, I knew that my focus had to be the hen and chick blocks. My mom loves her chickens and cares for them into their old age, long after they’ve stopped laying eggs.
She also loves old barns so when I saw the barn blocks I knew I had to choose at least two or three.
About a week later, she came to my house and had a look through the book. I was very pleasantly surprised when she chose for herself all the blocks that I had guessed she would want.
The color scheme of this quilt came from the design in my moms house. Although it has a farm look, I think it looks a bit more modern because of the fabric choices and vivid colors. It definitely has a bit of my style!
I’m not sure how I’ll do the layout of this quilt. For now, I’m just throwing blocks up on the design wall as I finish them.
I’ll keep you updated!
Happy Sewing, ~Lorinda
