Back in February of 2019
I started making some of the blocks from the book
Farm Girl Vintage by Lori Holt,
using the scraps left over from this quilt.
This is one of my all time favorite quilts and it lives on the back of my couch.
Turquoise and aqua are my favorite colors
and when placed with gray....wow!
at the time I belonged to a quilt group that was making these blocks
from 30's prints, but I didn't have many and don't really like the 30's prints.
I did what a quilter would have done back then...
used what I had.
Out came the box of scraps.
I made a few blocks and then had to stop attending the group
and progress stalled on this new quilt.
Fast forward to the Pandemic 2020.
Now I have time to finish some of these forgotten projects
and out came this box of scraps and blocks.
The color is off in these photos due to it being a
dark and dreary day, but these just sing to me!
I don't know why I waited so long to finish these.
My blocks are 6 1/2" unfinished and I've added a 1 1/2" sashing.
Sampler quilts are not my thing,
but I really like this one.
Each block was fun to make and some were a little
bit of a challenge.
This block is my favorite.
(I see I need to repress this one!)
The funny thing is.... I made it wrong!
It was nice to revisit the fabrics that I chose for the first quilt
and make something totally different with them.
I had to order some border fabric because I don't
have a large enough piece in my stash that will work.
The top will be sewn together today and once the border fabric arrives,
this little quilt will be finished.
It will make a nice baby quilt for someone special.

Be safe and be well.
