I have been sewing my farm girl quilt. In my mind, at least, planning trying to decide on which blocks to make large, and which blocks to make small. Maybe add some other blocks into the fray.
I made the Out to Pasture Block.
Thursday I decided to make the pumpkin block. I wanted a big pumpkin, since we grow big pumpkins on our farm. I started going through my scraps looking for 2 1/2 inch strips or squares. I even cut into some fat quarters and yardage to get enough pieces. Luckily for me I also had fabric from quilt guild that needed to be cup up into 2 1/2 inch strips, 4 1/2 squares or 10 inch squares. If the 2 1/2 inch strip is not at least 12 inches long I throw it into my scrap bin and take something out of my stash which is at least WOF for a substitution. I managed to come up with 30 different orange scraps!
I started working on the Canning Jars block in the 6 1/2 inch size. Yep not a fan of the 3/4 inch squares that are used to make the jar bottoms. But I will persevere.
And another pic of all of my blocks.
