Hi my name is Lisa and I am so happy to have been invited to participate in the Sew Along through the Fat Quarter Shop. Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnetis such a talented author, pattern and fabric designer. I love her books and fabric lines with Riley Blake.Have you been following along with Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage and jumped on the #farmgirlfridays bandwagon? I love seeing the blocks each week on Instagram. The book has a great variety of patterns that are very easy to follow. It is designed to open and lay flat. The photography is so colorful and beautiful. Did I say cute, so very cute! A keeper my friends! Buy yourself a copy at the Fat Quarter Shop! Old Glory Block Living with two guys, my husband and grandson their hangout space is the livingroom. When I told them I was redoing the couch pillows they both told me they wanted to choose the fabrics. No girly fabric for them. The pattern for "Old Glory" has a scrappy look but that didn't get the go ahead…
