Hooray its Farm Girl Friday so here is a very quick post with last weeks Farm Girl blocks, on the table this week were Canning Season and Chicken Foot.
Canning Season Block
I was really looking forward to the Canning Season block, I love the little stack of jars and its a great opportunity to show off a few of my favourite fabrics!
For this block I used Moda Bonnie & Camille Grey Gingham for the jar lids. For the jars I used Moda Chloes Closet Cherries, Moda American Jane Green Spiky Flowers, Pam Kitty Garden Pink Flowers, Penny Rose Hope Chest Yellow Flowers, Flower Sugar Cherry Polka Dot Rose in Blue and American Jane Navy Bandana. As always I used Makower Alisons Flowers Spaced Daisy as the background.
I quite fancy making this one in the 12 inch size for my kitchen, it would make a cute potholder!
Chicken Foot Block
As a Chicken keeper I love seeing chicken themed blocks pop up in the book and Chicken Foot is chicken themed block no.2! I was expecting Chicken Foot (or as I really want to call it Chicken Feet!) to be a tricky block given it involves 20 half square triangles, with all those points to get spot on when sewing together I was expecting plenty of unpicking with this block but somehow I winged it and my seam ripper didn’t get any use. Well they do say chicken feet can bring good luck!
For this block I used Blue Spiky Flowers by American Jane, Camellia Lattice Blooms by Robert Kaufman, Green Polka Dot Daisy by American Jane, Bonnie & Camille Yellow Dewdrop and as before Makower Alisons Flowers Spaced Daisy as the background.
Well thats all for week 4, I will be back next week with the next two blocks in the Sew-Along! Don’t forget if you fancy sewing along you can find Loris Farm Girl Vintage book here and a range of Farm Girl inspired fabrics here
