Farm Girl Vintage 2 Week 18 Rise and Shine Block 36

Image
Welcome to “In The Boon Docks”,  my name is Lisa,  and I am excited to share my block  from the Farm Girl Vintage Quilt Along  Week 18 with Lori Holt from  Bee In My Bonnet or @beelori
on Instagram


Farm Girl Vintage 2 This book has all the fun farm blocks plus patterns for pincushions, quilts, doll quilts, and pillows! It is available for sale at Fat Quarter Shop




I used a combination of Lori’s fabric with Riley Blake Designs! Granny Chic Bee Backgrounds Modern Minis


I lost my Alphabitties from  Fat Quarter Shop
and spent a good amount of time using stickers I wrote out! It was no fun!



I ordered some as soon as I realized I had misplaced my set! They are a product every quilter should own.

Block 36
I was inspired by Lori to make my little tractor pincushion,  she makes some of the cutest stuff! Best thing is she shares a lot on her blog! Bee In My Bonnet

Swan Dive with the Fat Quarter Shop

Image
The Fat Quarter Shop is giving away another pattern! Free Swan Dive Pattern
(The link will take you to the Jolly Jabber blog post)You can buy a kit from them or just buy
Jolly Bar Cake Mix A Jolly Bar and background fabric!
I really love these sheets they make it so easy to make  Perfect HST’s!

It is all very easy to make! One sheet makes 10 HST’s  and they are perfect! If you don’t want to use a Jolly Bar (5”x10”) then  find a nice Layer Cake (10”x10”)
I used Anagram by Kimberly Kite with the Ruby Star Society  (For a different look) and cut it in half (5”x10”)
You will need a background fabric which you  can cut your own to (5”x10”) or use a solid Jolly Bar
Bella Solid Jolly Bar

Put the 2 fabrics right sides together  and a sheet on top!  Pin to keep them from moving and sew on the lines!




I love working with the Fat Quarter Shop they give so much  to the sewing and quilting community!
Look at all the half square triangles!

Start sewing them together using the pattern, And you have a table runner or a quilt! 9 b…

Happy Flag Day, Hi I am Lisa and would like to thank  the Fat Quarter Shop  letting me sew along today.  I enjoy blogging with the Fat Quarter Shop  and sewing in their quilt alongs and sew alongs! I love the free pattern and think these would  also look great if you just wanted to  make placemats for the 4th of July! It is great for a beginner or experienced sewer!

Alphabitties  are great for keeping track  of all your pattern pieces!


It is a great pattern to chain piece quickly together!



The Clover Forked Pins make these seams line up perfect! They are my new favorite notion!

Sew Together Bag

Image
I finally after years of wanting another Sew Together Bag, Pattern by @sewdemented on Instagram  started one on yesterday! You can find the .pdf pattern in Michelle’s IG profile or purchase a paper copy in a quilt store or online at Fat Quarter Shop
I bought the pattern 2 summers ago and found it intimidating so I decided to check YouTube and I found Margaret’s video which took the intimidation away! She is very personable and goes through set by step!  You have to still buy the pattern because she gives no dimensions!
You can find Margaret online Margaret of MMQ https://youtu.be/Lrvud8RWFIU Margaret Leuwen Quilting


Here is my progress

I am doing it all in Alison Glass Fabric! Hope to finish it today! What are you sewing? Does a pattern ever intimidate you? Leave a comment!
Big hugs! Lisa
