Today is the day … Farm Girl Vintage turns one!
It hardly seems that it was only one year ago today that all those cute blocks started popping up.
When Fat Quarter Shop asked us to join the celebration, I couldn’t resist. I had our new “Brighten Up” fabrics calling for a cute project!
Then I saw the block! Oh my, 56 pieces! So I counted twice … yes, still 56 pieces. There was no doubt in my mind at this point that I would be making the 12 inch block and NOT the 6 inch version.
So I started cutting. I think I can do this, I think I can do this! 56 pieces is a bunch of small pieces!
I decided to tackle this logically (as logical as someone who likes sewing fast and easy projects can). I decided to start in sections from the top.
Sewing began and the plan was to take photos along the way at each step.
Well something totally unexpected happened! I got into the sewing, forgot to take pictures along the way AND before I knew it …
I had a finished block! 56 pieces are not so bad and I feel like the Queen of the World! Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks!
Happy Anniversary Farm Girl Vintage!
