Farm Girl Vintage

 I did a few more blocks from the book Farm Girl Vintage. This block is not in the book but is one of the extra blocks you can buy. I just love the garden and had to make peas and carrots. I love eating garden fresh peas and carrots with a dab of butter. 

Maybe I need a bunny to go next to my peas and carrots. Happy Easter!

The milk can with many different fabrics used. I should say I am working on 6" blocks, so I will need many blocks for a good size quilt. 

Here are all my vintage blocks so far. I know already I will be making more then one project from this book. I hope to do a quilt but then also a table topper with fruit, lots of red and turquoise. 

Also on the machine this weekend is my Tulip quilt. I have not decide how to quilt it so, I load it on the machine and force myself to do it.  

Up next will be the kettle block. I am loving my little design boards I made last week. I can cut out the pieces and lay out the fabric. I don't have to remeasure all the little bits because I know what I cut. 

I have added this post to Design Wall Monday


  1. Happy Easter to you, too, Cathy. Love your peas and carrots - very springy. Your Tulip Quilt will be beautiful. I love the idea of you design boards. Are they sticky?
    Have a lovely day.

  2. Thanks Terri, I found these design boards on the Bee in My Bonnet web site. I made mine a little differently. I used white flannel so there is a little bit of stick, I think on her site she used flat cotton batting and hot glue gunned her edges. Sewed some like a pillow, I used double sided tape with a fabric trim. The easiest ones I did were just taping the flannel to a board. No finished edge but still work great.

  3. Love the strawberry blocks. So cute!

  4. Peas and carrots is so cute--as are all the others. I'm a great admirer of those who persist with these small blocks! Pretty tulip quilt, too.
