This is week 5! (I couldn't help but think of Ryan Seacrest saying "This IS Week 5, of the Farm Girl Vintage Quilt Along"!) Ahhh, my television mind is always working. For those of you who don't know me, my husband and I run a television production company. My husband is a Director and Editor. I run the office from home, while he travels on location every week.
Alas, Week 5!
We are working from Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage book: and are completing blocks 9 and 10 out of 48.
Every year, the month of September brings forth the annual Farm Aid concert, which my husband is fortunate enough to be involved in. Farm Aid helps keep family farmers on the land by providing Family Farm Disaster Funds, Grant Programs, and overall, helping family farmers thrive.
The annual Farm Aid Concert is this weekend, September 19, in Chicago, and this year is the 30th Anniversary! Farm Aid 30 will be streamed live at farmaid.org starting at 2:30pm CST. The webcast, Farm Aid 30 Live Presented by Amy’s, will feature artist performances and stories from family farmers and eaters across the country.
Here are the two blocks for Week 5: In honor of family farmers,
Block 9: Crops Block, page 23 of the Farm Girl Vintage book:
Block 10: Farm Fresh Flower Block, page 26 of the Farm Girl Vintage book:
Until next week! Support your local farmers!
