Farm Girl Vintage Week 15

Whew! What a whirlwind three days! We loaded up the van with quilty friends and headed out for our second annual Row by Row Experience road trip. We had a ball - drove 825 miles, visited 25 quilt shops along the Colorado front range, ran into a horrible hail storm that pelted the van pretty good, spent too much money on awesome fabric and quilting goodies, ate at some neat places, and laughed a ton. Great time! Now to catch up on my Farm Girl Vintage blocks!

I didn't get last week's blocks done before we left on our road trip. Partly because I didn't have any oranges to make the Patchwork Pumpkin block. It was one of the many things that was on my shopping list. The book calls for 30 different prints, but I used 10 and I think they look great. I say 'they' because I couldn't stop with just one pumpkin! I decided I needed a whole patch of pumpkins! Here is my pumpkin patch, ready for quilting:

And here is my Patchwork Pumpkin block for my Farm Girl Vintage quilt:

Luckily the other block last week was quick and easy since I spent extra time making pumpkins. Here is my Out to Pasture block:

Now back to sewing! I need to get caught up on this week's Farm Girl Vintage blocks so I can work on my new block design for the 2015 FabriQuilt New Block Blog Hop that starts on August 31st. Mark it on your calendar - it should be great fun and 60+ free new block designs to get!



  1. Oh, Sharla! Those pumpkin blocks are scrappy and sweet! Love the little dots background you chose. So CUTE!

  2. The pumpkins do look great! It sounds like a lovely trip, but welcome home. :)
