I had grand plans to sew all weekend long but it didn't really happen. I came across this pincushion pattern on a blog called Fresh Lemon Quilts it was just the project to fit into the time I had to sew. If you want to make one there is a paper piece pattern you can print out.
I am displaying them on a cake plate in my front hallway. It makes me happy to see it as I come and go during the day.

My grandsons spent the night Saturday and were happy to be my models to show you my finished Farm Girl Vintage blocks. I really enjoyed making these simple blocks and am looking forward to turning them into a quilt. You can find the patterns in the book called Farm Girl Vintage by Lori Holt.
I was pretty focused with my color choices and am happy with the way they play together.
I love that strawberry. It took a lot of trial and error to get the pinks just right.
The only block I did not include was the sheep, I just wasn't feeling it. I opted for a bee (in another book) and still have to embroider the antennas.
I changed the sunflower block from yellows and browns to pink. There is no brown in my quilt. I used gray for stems and such where you would usually use brown. Notice my bee is pink too!
This was a QAL and very doable to make 2 blocks a week. I now will figure out how to set it.
If you are a new quilter this is a great book to learn quick techniques that you will use over and over again.
