Farm Girl Vintage Quilt & Featherweight Shop Sew Along - Blocks 11 & 12 (Country Crossroads & Crops)
by April Henry
Block 11 & 12 are our featured blocks for November - Country Crossroads and Crops blocks! The Farm Girl Vintage Quilt Sew Along with the Featherweight Shop continues.... After laying out all my blocks I noticed that mine are needing a bit more pops of red for balance. Thus, I decided to incorporate some red 30s prints for the Country Crossroads block.
But, when it came to constructing my Crops block, I ended up grabbing the little white corner square pieces from the wrong pile creating some assymetrical crops. Can you see my errors? I decided to keep them and just roll with it! After all, crops aren't perfectly symmetrical, and it's good to have some errors sometimes to keep us humble, right?
If you're just now joining us for the monthly Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along, grab your book, some fabric, get it prepared and cut, and let's enjoy some more Featherweight sewing!
Complete your blocks following along with the pattern, paying attention to a couple of tips in the photos below. Make sure to press your block seams open (when you can), being careful to be as exact with your cutting and alignments as possible.
