Judy Jensen will lead the guild in Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet’s Farm Girl Vintage 2018-19 Quilt Along.
Official Start–February 9, 2018. The top is due at the April 2019 meeting to qualify for the GRAND PRIZE.
Total of 48 blocks which can be 6″ or 12″. This is a great stash buster!
1.) You may 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.
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 April 2019 day meeting, your name will go into the drawing for the grand prize, yet to be determined.
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).
Judy suggests you attach sashing as you go to the top and right side of each block. This saves time and effort when piecing the quilt together. Also, if you are a Facebook user, there is a great FB group that has lots of helpful information, pictures, and ideas. The lady that hosts seems very nice and informed.
