dappled sunshine on my Vintage Farm Girl blocks

We've had our killing frost here in central Ohio,
and Autumn weather has arrived.
Sunny, crisp, and a warm breeze trying to warm things up!
It was such a beautiful day today,
so I went out and walked around the back yard
(rather the back garden if you're from the other side of the pond - 
or so my Dutch friends tell me).

Whilst enjoying the weather and my walk, 
I realized it would be a great idea
to photograph my lastly made blocks
from the Vintage Farm Girl sew along!
(Yes, the sew-along is finished, but I'm still working on mine!)

I had a whole STACK of VFG blocks I'd made
and sandwiched in my pattern book,
so I checked to see what I'd already photographed, and
I guess when you have a stack of blocks almost 20 high
that it's waaaay past time to share!! :)
Notice the leaf that came to visit in the last picture?  
The wind picked up and that beauty fluttered in!
 I left the leaf there when I placed my next blocks:
 I laid out the following blocks, and another leaf came to visit, too:
 I LOVE all of the blocks, and have been doing them very scrappy.
I did do just a little fussy-placement of fabric when I did that last block, above ^.
Here's a closer view:
Wowza!!! NINETEEN blocks I hadn't shared! 
I didn't know it was that many!
I already have the next few blocks cut out, 
which leaves maybe only another six, so the end is in sight!!  

Oh, but I don't have my border fabric chosen for this.
I really should think about that, shouldn't I?

Thanks for visiting, 
and I hope your day has been filled with dappled sunshine, also!


  1. Don't worry about not being done. I've almost never finish a quilt along on time (maybe never??) Lots of nice blocks.

  2. Your blocks look great! You're almost done. Hey, I didn't know I had a back garden other than the vegetable one -ha!

  3. These blocks are delightful! So warm and happy. I think I like the milk can best, or the chicken, or maybe the barn, or the cherries, o.k. I love them all. Nicely done! Happy stitching and happy day.

  4. great blocks. Like seeing them outside!

  5. Hey, where have you been? Hope you had a great Christmas. Hope you'll be posting again soon.


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
