Vintage Farm Girl Quilt





Lori Holt's Vintage Farm Girl Quilt in 12" blocks


My very big  Farm Girl Vintage quilt

This is a 2016 make and I am just now getting it on the blog.  I am slowly working at getting all my quilts on the blog.  





Lori Holt's Vintage Farm Girl Quilt in 12" blocks - barn and cow blocks

Our quilt club decided to use  Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage Book for our club challenge quilt.  The goal was to make at least 2 blocks a month and go for about 6-8 months.  You could make more if you wanted, which I did.  The book as 6" block and 12" block sizes, I went with the 12".

The fabric I used was a fat quarter bundle of Lori Holt fabric and lots of scraps from my collection.

I had so much fun making this quilt and it is always fun seeing other club members blocks.  Everyone has their own favorite colors and patterns.

I made all the blocks and added the cow, which can be found on Fat Quarter Shop's website, with a few other extra blocks.  The apple blocks came from Lori's book - Quilty Fun

My quilt is huge but I love it, scrappy goodness in sampler fun.  I did not do the half square triangle border as in book cover.  When I get to the end of a quilt, I just really want to get finished!☺

This one was hard to photograph, the girls had to stand on the porch so the big quilt wouldn't drag on the ground and it is just a bit dark but you get the idea of the quilt.  The quilt pattern is AM Rodeo

  4. I love it. Love your color choices. I made this one too. But my quilter put super thick batting in it. So I've never used. Texas doesn't need super warm quilts. Maybe we can use it a few days this winter.
