Farm Girl Vintage Quilt Along - Week 3

Welcome to Week 3 of the Farm Girl Vintage Quilt Along!

It has been sew exciting to see the participation in this quilt along. By the end of this week, you will have completed 6 blocks. This week we are working on blocks 5 and 6, of 46 unique blocks.  By the end of the quilt along, you may end up with more than 46 blocks.  If you look at the cover quilt of Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage book, you will see that she uses 4 of the same star blocks for her corner blocks.  We, however, have added the additional Penny Pig Block download to our quilt along, which could go in place of one of the corner star blocks. So, actually, we will end up with a total of 48 blocks, of which 46 are unique.

We do have a Flickr group, where you can post pictures of your completed blocks!  Here is the link: Flickr - Farm Girl Vintage Group.  I love seeing everyone's blocks!

Here are the two blocks for this week: Week 3

As we say good bye to Summer, we also welcome the cooler days of Autumn! I love the golden glow of an autumnal sunset!  The leaves are beginning to change, the sun sets 1 minute earlier each day, the kids are back in school, but I do miss Summer. I'll miss Movie Monday's with my friends at the outdoor theater mostly! Before we know it, Winter will be here, so enjoy the last few weeks of warm weather!  Quilt on!

Happy fun selecting your fabrics for these two blocks, and don't forget to post your finished blocks to our Flickr - Farm Girl Vintage Group!


  1. Hi Tina and FGV peeps. Star blocks are always a favorite of mine. Hard to believe summer is coming to an end. I love summer and the extra daylight late into the evening. But oh how I love fall as well. Cooler weather,
