Farm Girl Vintage Quilt & Featherweight Shop Sew Along - Blocks 13 & 14 (Egg Basket & Farm Fresh Flower)
by April Henry
Blocks 13 & 14 are our featured blocks for December - Egg Basket and Farm Fresh Flower blocks! The Farm Girl Vintage Quilt Sew Along with the Featherweight Shop continues, even in December amidst the holiday hustle and bustle.... This was indeed the Christmas season, yet a few of us Featherweight Shop diehards still got together to work on our blocks. We waited until after our big annual sale, but we had fun discussing that when we increase to three blocks per month (starting in January), that means we are half way through with sewing our quilt top!
Both Ruthie and April opted to make a yellow and brown basket, featuring a more "realistic" or natural-colored basket style. What about you? What color was your basket?
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.
