Farm Girl quilt progress............

I like to work on my the Farm Girl quilt blocks when my 2 friends come to sew.  The blocks take so long to make and it is great to have conversation while doing them.  I got the two sunflower blocks done.  They are 6" x 12".  I also modified the pattern slightly and made a double tall stem and leaves for which I still need to make the flower block.  I have one more set of the short leaf block all cut and ready to sew.  I will do the next 2 flowers when they come next time.
Here is a closer view of the block.  Those little connector corners on the leaves are tiny little 1" squares sewn diagonally.  I want to make at least one 12" sunflower block and maybe won't need the stem and leaves if I position it above the small flowers like it is in the background behind them.





I sewed a bunch more of the pink strip sets on Sunday and got them pressed yesterday.  I'll start slicing them soon so I can make more blocks.  I have one more batch of strip sets to make.

The Farm Girl blocks are paper pieced and look really good. It's a fun and cheerful top. The pink quilt will be so nice when finished, I happen to like pink, it's soothing in the colors you have picked.

Those jars are just so cute. So many possibilities for a child's quilt (especially a boy's quilt).

I really like your colors in the Farm Girl Quilt. I like the more traditional look.

Wanda, I love seeing your farm girl blocks growing. Fun background fabric! Is it a recent fabric or something in your stash?
I also enjoy seeing your garden. Our backyard has become more shady and the grass is not doing well and I admire what you have done...I'm sure over the years, but that is what I envision my yard to look like someday!
