Farm Girl Vintage Quilt Along - Introduction

Welcome to the Farm Girl Vintage Quilt Along!  My friendship group, also known as the Clubhouse Quilters, have overwhelmingly decided to have an online quilt-along using blocks and patterns in Lori Holt's new book, Farm Girl Vintage.  Normally, we meet once a month, or more, at the clubhouse as a group to sew for the day, but within the last year two ladies have moved out of state, including me! This is something that we can all still do together and share our progress online, even miles apart, so if you have stumbled upon this website, jump on in and join us!

Every Friday, at midnight, there will be a new post containing blocks for the week. We will begin with two blocks per week, and see how the group is able to keep up. There are a total of 45 blocks, plus a downloadable bonus block, Penny Pig, ( ) available at Fat Quarter Shop.

This week, you should be pulling fabric from your stash, or shopping for new fabric, which is always fun!  You will also need plenty of background fabric.  I have chosen Kona Snow as my background fabric. It's readily available should I run out.  For this project, I have purchased 5 yards, and if there is any left over, bonus for the next project in Lori's book!

Of course, you will also need the Farm Girl Vintage book, which is availbale at or, and other online retailers.

There are a variety of  quilts in the Farm Girl Vintage book to choose from, however for the purpose of this quilt along we will be piecing the Farm Girl Sampler Quilt on page 134, which is the book's cover photo quilt.  You may choose either a 6 inch block or a 12 inch block size for your Farm Girl Sampler Quilt.

Happy fabric hunting, and we will see you back here on Friday for our first two blocks of the quilt along!
