Featherweight Shop Sew Along - Farm Girl Vintage Quilt
by April Henry

Singer Featherweight 221 222 - Featherweight Shop Sew Along Farm Girl Vintage Lori Holt Bee in My Bonnet

This past week, the Featherweight shop staff met and chose the Farm Girl Vintage Quilt Book as our next sew along.  The quilt is adorable and appeals to many styles, the blocks are smaller at 6 1/2" square and will be fairly simple to construct (especially with Lori Holt's wonderful instructions), and each block will be easy to find fabric for (scraps on hand, charm packs, fat quarter bundle, complete kits, etc.) making it manageable on any fabric budget!

We would all love to have you join us! 

We will be gathering to sew on our regular Featherweight Shop Sew Along day (traditionally, every Monday)All Featherweight owners are always welcome to sew right along with us, regardless of project, but if you want to join in with the making of the Farm Girl Vintage quilt, a lot of the fun internet chit-chat and discussion will be focused on the featured block.

What you will need:

  1. A vintage Singer Featherweight 221 or 222
  2. Farm Girl Vintage Book
  3. Start at the first block "Apron Strings", working through the book one block at a time.
  4. Fabric selected, cut and ready to sew
  5. Thread, notions and other things handy for sewing
  6. Need a kit to have all the fabric you'll need, handy and ready?
    We have complete kits here!

When:  Anytime that is convenient for you to sew.  We will be starting out slow with just one (1) block (to give beginners enough time to become familiar with quilting) and then as time goes by we will increase that to accommodate duplicate blocks or if we happen to get antsy and want to sew more!  No worries, though, we will give you advance notice when we decide to increase the number of blocks!

Where:  This is a casual online sew along, so you can join in right from your own home.  Be sure to check out the Featherweight Fellowship page, too, because there might be a local gathering of Featherweight friends who would be happy to have you join with them whenever they meet together.

How to Participate:

  1. Grab a cup of coffee, tea or favorite beverage along with a yummy treat to snack on (we quilters need something to keep us going!)
  2. Choose your best sewing time of day and sew your block using your Singer Featherweight 221 or 222 sewing machine.
  3. Take pictures of your progress or finished block and share them in the comments below or on Instagram.
  4. If you are sewing solo, remember that you really aren't sewing alone because there are others, just like you, sewing with a Singer Featherweight at the same time... so don't be shy and share what you've made!  Your sewing may just be the inspiration others need to complete their blocks!
  5. If you are participating in a Featherweight Fellowship group in your geographic area, share photos of you all sewing together on Instagram, and be sure to tag us because we would love to see you all! @featherweightshop

 Singer Featherweight Shop Sew Along - Farm Girl Vintage by Lori Holt Bee In My Bonnet

This book has been published for a couple of years now, so if you've already started on this quilt but haven't finished quite yet, you are more than welcome to join in, too!  You'll be ahead of us, but that will still be wonderful, because as you round the corner to the finish line we will cheer you on; and, it will encourage us to keep going!
