A Little Kick

Wow, it's been a bit! To say I was in a bit of a funk is an understatement.

Sometimes you need a little kick to get you back on track, for me, it took an invite from Fat Quarter Shop to be a part of a new Sew Along.

Starting October 1st. I am participating in The Quilty Barn Sew and Stitch Along.

We will be sewing out of Lori Holt's original Farm Girl Vintage Book.

What's great about this Sew Along is we get to go back to the book where my Farm Girl obsession first started.

The other wonderful news about this Sew Along is you have several options. You can choose to sew the Silo Barn Quilt found on page 92 or sew the Quilty Barn Quilt found on page 91 or the Silo Barn Tablerunner found on page 94. If that wasn't enough options you have the option to create your own by mixing and matching any of the patterns. But wait, there's more, if you are into Cross Stitch, Fat Quarter Shop has a Cross Stitch option with the pattern available on their blog. Ok, no excuses not to join in the fun.

I will be sewing the Silo Barn Quilt.

Another really fun option is you get to choose what 6" block to use inside your barn.

I'm going with different star blocks found in the Farm Girl Vintage Book, but you can choose any 6" block in any of Lori's books.

I have started my Star blocks.

Since I don't have a Fall quilt, I decided to make my Silo Barn Quilt in Fall colors.

I put together some Fat Quarter and Fat Eighth

Bundles for you, they are listed in my Etsy Shop.

Be sure to follow along starting October 1st. Use the hashtag #QuiltyBarnSAL and #QuiltingBarnSewAlong also sewing is Jen from The Smitten Chicken @thesmittenchicken, Jeresther @sew_Sweet_Seebee, and Melanie from A Bit of Scrap Stuff @abitofscrapsstuff.

Each week we will be posting our progress finishing up on November 15th.

I am also planning a give-away during this Sew Along so be sure to keep an eye out for that.

Hope you join the fun!
