Week 3 Farm Girl Vintage - All Caught Up

So I started the Farm Girl Vintage QAL in week 2 and made the second and third I am caught up for week 3 with block 1, 4 and 5...

 I am doing the 6 inch blocks but the directions in the book give you the option of 12 inch as well.  The book can be purchased here and Lori's blog for the QAL is here.

 This is Apron Strings from week 1
 This is Baking Day
 And this is Butter Churn

Here they are all together so far, I am going very scrappy here but am happy to get to use some Bee in My Bonnet fabrics from my stash, as well!!

Farm Girl Vintage Quilting Along

Not much sewing around here lately but I did get a start on Bee in My Bonnet's (Lori Holt) QAL using her new book Farm Girl Vintage.

 I am planning on making the 6 inch size blocks to put together in a Sampler Quilt similar to the one on the front cover.
 This is a pattern called Autumn Star but I picked summer colors so I guess that makes mine more Summer Star-ish?
 This one is aptly named Baby Chick block...
 Our salad greens are progressing, should be able to pick and eat soon!
 Lots of growth happening right now with the rain we received this weekend...

Carrots still have a long way to go :)
