One block down, 11 to go.............

I made one block for the quilt I showed yesterday and this is before trimming.










This is after trimming the corners but it came out a bit larger than it is supposed to so I'll have to carefully trim it making sure I keep the striped pieces directly in the center of each side.




I also started sewing tractor parts for the Farm Girl Vintage quilt.  This block is 16" x 20" and the other blocks in the quilt are 12" and 6" finished sizes.  I'm thinking about making one of the barns too and I think it is 14".  I am planning on making my own layout, not following the book.

Wow, that first block is bright and beautiful. Looking forward to seeing your version of the Farm Girl Vintage quilt!

It was hard to see the block on the book cover, but now, I get it. Wonderful colors.

The colours you've chosen are not my colour-way so the first block is a lot more cheery than I expected - that's why I like to see how you put things together and the outcome is often surprising, in a good way :)

Your eye for fabric selection never ceases to amaze me! I MUST get this book now! Thanks for always inspiring me!

I will need to read your earlier blog to see the finished quilt. These two entirely different patterns are both so creative.

That's a great block. Looking forward to your other fabric choices.

Wow, this is a bright, bright block - very different to the KF fabrics, is it a heavier weight fabric?

What a fabulous start to this new quilt! I remember you only found nine prints, will you repeat a couple to get enough blocks?
I don't know a whole lot of tractors, but I can tell yours won't be a John Deere. Victoria Findlay Wolfe made a tractor quilt with a red tractor, but I don't recall the make of it. I think she's from the mid-west, so maybe that fits? I've seen some blue ones around here as well.

I just started the Farm Girl Vintage blocks as well. I decided I needed something that takes a long time, with so many small 6 inch blocks! Aren't they all beautiful? I'll be watching to see what yours look like Elaine Adair
