Back at the end of January Amy of A Quilting Sheep posted the cutest block. It was a friendship block with a heart. Now I love the friendship block and I love hearts so of course I had to save the tutorial that she provided. I thought it would be so cute in my Farm Girl Vintage quilt, but I didn't want the large block. Amy kindly gave me permission to try to downsize it to 6 1/2 inches.
Then Barbara of wont-to-be quilter, shared a block on Facebook and I knew I wanted to try to make the block. I made a cute apple block. I think my stem is too large and I have some 3/4 inch strips and 1inch squares to make HST, but I got it to 6 1/2 inches square.
The blocks for the Farm Girl Vintage SALin March are the barn, and the pear. I think before I go any further I may need to work out how many blocks am I making, and create kind of a layout since I have 6 1/2 inch blocks as well as 12 1/2 inch blocks.
Last month was my birthday. If you shop online some shops send you specials for your birthday. I had a 20% off discount. So I just had to use it, not using a 20% off coupon is like flushing money down the drain right?
