Farm Girl Fun

As promised, I'm posting my Farm Girl Fun quilt I finished a couple of months ago (or was it last month - I can't remember).  Laura (at Jackman's Fabrics) saw a similar quilt on Pinterest (posted on Flicker by Jabeybaby) and asked me if I could make something like it for display in the store.  Of course I said "sure" and set about designing something similar, with more balance and adding lots of those cute "crops blocks"! 
I even wrote out a freebie project sheet for Jackman's with a block layout that could be used in conjunction with Lori Holt's book Farm Girl Vintage to make Farm Girl Fun.   
This book is hot, hot, hot, I tell ya!  Everyone in the quilting world wants it and wants to make a quilt in it - it's becoming quite the craze!!!

Disclosure: I received supplies to make this project from Jackman's Fabrics in Fairview Heights, IL.  The quilt will be hung as a shop sample in their store to promote sale of both the pattern and fabric lines,  In exchange, the quilt will be returned to me at the end of the promotion.  They did not require me to write a positive review of any of the products.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 <> : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
