Fat Quarter Shop Quilt Along

Farm Girl Friday

Hi! And welcome to Farm Girl Fridays! I am sewing along with the Fat Quarter Shop and Lori Holt! Have you seen Lori Holt’s new book Farm Girl Vintage 2? It is sew cute! Fat Quarter Shop also has all of the super cute Farm Girl Vintage fabric if you want to make the whole quilt!

Every Friday, Lori Holt and the Fat Quarter Shop share one of Lori’s quilt blocks for the Farm Girl Vintage Quilt Along.

Fat Quarter Shop Quilting Fabric, Kits, Notions and Patterns

I am quilting along with them! I picked out my favorite Bonnie and Camille Fabrics!

I have been holding onto some of this yellow fabric for a LONG time! I knew I needed to make the cute bee block in this book and use up some of this yellow fabric.

Aren’t those little yellow wings perfect? I’m so glad I saved that Marmalade fabric by Bonnie and Camille!

Seriously this bundle of fabric is so sweet! I love the Little Snippets fabric as the background. Now I’m thinking I need a whole quilt with this background.

I decided I needed a new mug rug. I love to drink hot chocolate in the morning. This little bee is the perfect cheery block to get me through the rest of the winter. I used my favorite basting spray to baste this block. SpraynBond by Thermoweb is such a great basting spray. It doesn’t leave a residue and it doesn’t make my needle sticky.

Now I’m already for my morning hot chocolate! This little mug rug is Bee-utiful!

Also, aren’t those beehive salt and pepper shakers the cutest? They were my aunts and I love them!

Fat Quarter Shop Quilt Along · Summer Moon Quilt Along

Summer Moon Quilt Along- November

The Holidays are fast approaching and it is BANANAS!!! Are you feeling the Holiday crunch? I love the Holidays. It is my favorite time of year, but with Thanksgiving so late this year, I am feeling the crazy. And to add to the crazy, my rainbow baby celebrated her 3rd birthday…on Thanksgiving!

So truth be told, I am behind on my blocks! Yikes! I did manage to complete the Four X’s Block.

Four X’s Block

This block is similar to an Ohio Star block, which is my favorite block. I can’t decide which one is my favorite! I love the red and green as we head into Christmas! But aqua and red will always have my heart!

All the rest of my blocks are in pieces! haha. Thank goodness for a never ending January. (Doesn’t January seem to go on forever?) I plan on catching up my blocks in then.

Summer Moon Quilt

I plan on using my hoarded Bonnie and Camille fabric to complete this quilt! I spent the time organizing my scraps at the beginning of this quilt along. It took a bit of time to organize my scraps. But now, when I need a 2.5″ block, I just have to grab that bag of scraps. This has simplified the process of choosing fabrics.

Thanks for following along!

Layer Cake Links Quilt

I’m so excited to share my Layer Cake Links Quilt with Fat Quarter Shop! This quilt is part of their short cut quilt series, which means it comes together super fast!

Nova Layer Cake

Start by picking your favorite layer cake. I chose Nova by Basic Grey for Moda Fabrics. The Fat Quarter Shop has also put together a quilt kit for this pattern using Finnegan by Brenda Riddle. Isn’t that cute too?

Layer Cake Links Quilt Kit by Fat Quarter Shop

You will also need this free pattern or you can follow along with the video tutorial here.

Here I am about to slice these cute squares up! I think Nova is the perfect transition to Fall. The rich colors are so pretty with some beautiful flowers to finish up the summer. I love this fabric line!

If you have stopped by here before, you may have noticed my obsession with FORK PINS! They are seriously the best! You place the fork pins on either side of your seam and it holds it in place as you sew. My points match up so much better! And no unpicking!

Layer Cake Links Quilt

I love this quilt so much! And it really is super fast! So grab your favorite layer cake and link it up!

Nova Quilt Swirl

I had to include a quilt swirl pic with my favorite letter board!

Thanks for following along today.

Giveaway · Oliso Iron

Giveaway: Oliso Mini Iron

I am excited to host a giveaway this weekend! My friends at Oliso have released a new iron. And it’s MINI! And mine came just in time since mine broke! Have you ever seen the inside of an iron? Yikes!

Broken Iron!

I have been using my mini iron a ton! It is the perfect size to keep right next to my sewing machine. My ironing board is downstairs, so this is saving me a bunch of time! And it’s PINK! This mini iron helps a lot with small pieces like these in my Summer Moon quilt. The precision tip helps with those little flying geese!

Summer Moon blocks

This iron also gets super hot! Even though it is mini! The steam works great too!

Comes with a Soulmate

The iron comes with a soulmate. It fits around your iron for storage. This iron is a great size for travel. I can’t wait to pack it with me on a dreamy sewing vacation. And I’m loving that it’s pink!

Soulmate is also an iron rest

The soulmate also flips over and is an iron rest. My favorite part about the Oliso iron is that you don’t have to stand it up when you are done. This soulmate keeps your hot iron from burning anything. And it is hot!

So the best part….a giveaway! Do you want one of these?!? The hardest choice is picking which color!

What color would you choose? To enter the giveaway, follow my blog. Then head over to my Instagram account to let me know you stopped by. This giveaway ends July 21 at 11:59pm EDT and is not affiliated with Instagram. Giveaway is open to U.S. and Canada residents only (sorry my International friends!) I will choose a random winner and let you know on Monday! Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor!

And if you don’t win, you can buy the pink iron or the yellow iron and get some happy mail!

Chirp Out!
