Judy Jensen led the guild in Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet’s Farm Girl Vintage 2018-19 Quilt Along. At the May 2019 guild meeting, Twelve entries, one drawing winner–Connie Martin!
May 2019 members brought in their tops to qualify for the GRAND PRIZE of $150.00.
The challenge required members to make 48 blocks which were either 6″ or 12″. This was a great stash buster!
Some of the Entries:
Judy Jensen, Farm Girl Vintage Quilt Chair, with her quilt.
Sharon Crozier’s quilt (below)
Rules from the Challenge:
1.) You must make all the different blocks from the book, or you may make 48 of the same block. If you wish to follow the quilt along exactly, the Farm Girl Vintage book will be used, with the first four blocks beginning on Page 8. You cannot be in the drawing if you use blocks from any other of Lori Holt’s books OR if you have fewer than 48 blocks. These tops will have a special exhibit in this year’s quilt show!
2.) Bring 4 new completed blocks each month. (Incentive–each month that you keep up, your name will go into a drawing for a great prize.) Honor’s System applies.
3.) In June, October 2018, and February 2019, winners will be chosen.
4.) If you bring your completed top to the May 2019 day meeting, the grand prize is a check for $150.00 that may go towards quilting the top.
There are additional blocks for purchase on the Fat Quarter Shop website for $5.95 each. You may include these new blocks, but you don’t have to. Absolutely any of the blocks from the book may be used as long as you make 48. Google “Fat Quarter Shop” and search “Farm Girl Vintage” and you will find 14 additional blocks for the FGV quilt. They are downloadable.
According to the book: 6″ blocks = 62″ x 76″ quilt; 12″ blocks = 92″ x 92″ (requires 49 blocks).
