Farm Girl Vintage Quilt Along - Week 4

You have made it to Week 4! Give yourself a pat on the back!

This week, you will have completed 8 blocks out of 46.  As a reminder, there are 46 unique blocks, however, you will end up with a total of 48 blocks to make an 8 x 6 block quilt, as on the cover of

Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage book,    which we are working from. Included in the 46 unique blocks, is the downloadable  Penny Pig block, from Fat Quarter Shop.

Here are the two blocks for Week 4:

Block 7 of 46:  Old Glory Block, page 47 of the Farm Girl Vintage book:

In honor of Patriot Day, a National Day of Service and Rememberance, I have selected Old Glory, in memory of the 2977 souls lost on September 11, 2001.

Block 8 of 46:  Pie Cherries Block, page 54-55 of the Farm Girl Vintage book:

Cherries, I love cherries, cherry pie, cherry juice, cherry turnovers, anything cherry!

On the home front here in California, a little update.  My dining room table is now a dining room table. It does not have any quilting items on it! In fact, there is not one piece of fabric, not a sewing machine or two or three, nor any supplies in the living area at all, for the first time in 3 years!  Our house is now on the market!  I had to pack up all of my fabric, boo hoo, but on the plus side ~ I can actually walk in my studio now.

I hope  you are having fun with the quilt along.  I really enjoy the process of picking out fabric from my charm pack stash. Auditioning fabrics is sew much fun!

What is your favorite part of the quilt along; selecting fabric, cutting, piecing, ironing?  Are you fabric swapping with your friendship group?
We do have a Flickr group, where you can post pictures of your completed blocks!  Here is the link: Flickr - Farm Girl Vintage Group.  There is also a discussion area on the Flickr page!

Happy piecing and have a great week!
