"Farm Girl Vintage" Sewalong Finish

Do you remember this book?
There was a sew along this summer using this Lori Holt book....and yes, I did follow along.

I made all the blocks but then I got sidetracked with a few things.  I finally had my FAVORITE quilter work her magic on it and then it sat....and sat.....

After the rush of the holidays I got the binding on and tacked down so now it's all ready for either using or gifting.  I haven't decided which yet :)

I used a turquoise and white leaf print for the back and a pale white on yellow dot for the binding.  
LOOK at some of these blocks though....sheep, cherries, milk jugs, jars, stars and baskets.   I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this all came together and will have to do another of Lori's patterns sometime soon.

In the meantime, I'm doing a 52 week sew along of star blocks.  A Needle Pulling Thread Quilt Shop is running it on Instagram.  The block can either be called Morning Star or Variable Star depending on where you look it up.    Here's a peek at mine so far.....

I'm using a Robert Kaufmann "dotty" bundle for the star points and cutting up my scraps from the Lori Holt project for the centers.     I did the 2015 sewalong with the Instagram girls also.  I'll have to take some pictures of those blocks and what I'm planning to do with them.......
