Home Is Where My Story Begins

Farm Girl Vintage Quilt

The other day I ran across a photo on Instagram of a quilt block that made my heart go pitter patter.  It was a quilt block that looked like bowls and a wooden spoon.  I absolutely had to know where this came from.  I tracked it down to a book called Farm Girl Vintage and now I have a new quilting project in the works.
The Farm Girl Vintage quilt is made of a variety of different blocks and I think it will be so much fun to make these.  There are several styles that I don’t have any experience with, so this will be a good challenge for me.
I have a few vintage fabrics, but also picked up a couple of new fat quarters at my local quilt shop.  When I told the ladies at the quilt shop which quilt I was making, one of them said, “Oh, you got sucked in too, huh?”

How could you NOT get sucked in?  The combination of vintage fabrics and country farm girl vintage quilt blocks is just too much to resist!

I can’t wait to get started!  I think I’ll make that cute bowls and wooden spoon block first.
Happy sewing!
