I love Lori Holt, her fabric, her designs. Nothing is more wonderful that quilts, sewing, farm girls, fresh veggies from the garden and all things wholesome and good.
My family comes from a long line of farmers. Hard working farmers who survived from digging in the ground and planting seeds.
My Great Grandfather Charles Ray in 1930 on his farm. This was probably Missouri but I do not know for sure
Lyle Ray, my Great Uncle (son of Charles Ray) in 1931
Delbert and Martha (Blackwelder) Whitten, My Great Great Grandparents! Probably in Wichita Kansas.
In fact my farming roots go way back to the early history of America. However something went amiss in my genetic code, I cannot grow a thing to save my life. My Grandmother could take a stick and put it in dirt and grow a plant. I kill cactus. Just a fact. To make up for it, I love the concept of farming. So I guess I will quilt, sew, make jam, cook and be a wanna be!
So back to the sew along.
I checked out Lori’s Blog and was thrilled to see a new sew a long was happening as well as a new book. AWESOME!!! Perfect timing
Her awesome book…look at all that quilting yumminess!!!
Luckily I was able to get her fabric bundle.
I got her fabric bundle, plus I decided to pull a variety of charm packs of 1930’ish type fabric.
Of course I keep finding little charm packs here and there in my stash, so more will be added. The wonderful thing with a charm pack is the size is perfect for these smaller blocks
But on to the quilting.
The first one is APRONSTRINGS
My 2nd one is AUTUMN STAR
My third square is BABY CHICK
Off to make the new quilt squares!!!!
