Joined friends on a quilt shop excursion today. So nice to shop with friends and eat out together,stopping for more shopping on the drive home too. I've been drooling over Lori Holt's quilt ps for months and couldn't resist her Farm Girl Vintage book. My sewing room is much too clean to start anything new this afternoon plus I'm leaving town tomorrow. But I can dream anyway. Anyone thinking about a Farm Girl Vintage quilt-along?

Evelyn, I have the Farm Girl Vintage book and would love to join a quilt-along, but maybe in January.  I need to concentrate on Christmas bazaar projects now.  Well, I was actually thinking of making some pot holders for the bazaar using Lori's cute farm patterns, so I could start those now if you want to get going.

I'm in, Nancy. I love Lori Holt's patterns and great color choices. Makes me smile! I was thinking some mug rugs, placemats, or table runners would be such cute gifts too. Making one would teach me how to make that block and the next one is much easier. I want some checks and polka dots in reds and aqua. Yum!

Okay, I split out a new quilt-along: Lori Holt's "Farm Girl Vintage."  Anyone joining us will need to pick up the book.  This will be a loosely run quilt-along.  Tackle blocks in whatever order you want along whatever timeline you want.  You might decide to make a full quilt, a wall hanging, or just utilize individual blocks for pot holders, placemats, table runners, aprons, and the like.  Mostly we want to see PICTURES of any blocks you are making from this book.  These patterns are so cheery, especially when done in 30's.  So who's in?

If I were home, I'd be pulling out fabrics. But I'm in San Antonio so may have to buy some fabrics! Shucky darn! I was in a quilt shop yesterday and they were doing a quilt-along with at least a dozen blocks displayed. SO cute! On our way to San Marcos. Need to put some new quilt shops in my GPS. DH thinks gremlins tell him when to turn. Recalculating, recalculating!

Teehee, I will actually get a jump-start on Evelyn!  

I'm going to start with the "Baking Day" block on p.13.  As suggested in the directions for pot holders on p.120, I'll make the 6" version and then add a border around to make it 8.5".  I selected fabrics for this block and have them cut and and the diagonal lines marked.  I decided I'm going to make 2 identical copies of 6 different blocks for a total of 12 potholders for the bazaar. 

How many layers of batting do you all use for potholders?  The directions call for one layer of insul-brite only, but based on previous experience, I don't think that's enough.

Chelle, you can work with scraps to make pot holders.  Come join us!

I'm in! I just bought the book last week at our quilt show. I don't know how soon I will start. Maybe in September. Maybe not until January.

Hello Ellie, I believe is about $24 (bit less or more). At least that is the price in Connecting Threads.

ordering book from Amazon today...... such cute patterns for little Christmas presents...

Nancy, I use a layer of batting on each side of insul-brite.... kinda thick but I don't think 1 layer of batting is enough.... I do use mine as pot holders and not as decorations..... :)

I bought this book a while back at JoAnns with a good coupon. Since then, I think the coupons are no longer good on books, at least around here....

I need another project like I need a hole in my head, but my DGD Ellie wants a quilt on her bed and this would be perfect for her.  I have a few 30's I have been gifted, so will need to hunt down some more.  I am going to go order the book today as well.

Amazon has the best price for anyone looking.

I use one layer of insulbrite and one layer cotton batting or just 2 layers of cotton batting when i don't have the insulbrite.

I have mostly completed my first two pot holders - Baking Day.  Binding is cut but not stitched on yet.  Jean, I used one layer of Insul-brite and one layer of Warm & Natural.  Hoping that's enough.

I struggle joining the ends of binding on small objects, so I searched out techniques.  Has anyone used either of these?

Measure perimeter and seam the binding ends together to make one loop/frame before stitching to object.

Slip/hide the raw end inside the folded/pressed/finished end.   (scroll down to see binding ends)

First potholders completed.  Baking Day, pg.13.

      

Conversation with DH:

Me - Come see my first vintage pot holders.

DH - Nice.  A spoon.

Me - That's all you see?

DH - And a bowl.

Me - Just a bowl? 

DH - Ummm, a bowl of chicken noodle soup?

Me - You don't see the second bowl, do you?

DH - No.  Well maybe if I squint my eyes.

Me - Groan....

I guess I'll be doing these over with higher contrast fabrics.  I thought my background, though patterned, was neutral enough to make the light green bowl visible.
