Farm Girl Fridays

The first block for
Farm Girl Fridays was apron strings.
Super fun block with great instructions from Lori's book 
Farm Girl Vintage.
I choose to make the 12 inch blocks. It seemed huge after making the littler blocks for my Farmer's Wife Quilt.

Well in my last post I showed you my background fabrics and fabrics I pulled from my stash.  I am still going to use the background fabrics but decided to open my Bonnie and Camille Daysail Fat Quarter Bundle. I was hoarding it, but why?!

So here is block #!

Apron Strings

Happy Sewing!


  1. It's wonderful! I think I will be doing the 12" too.
    Now I need to get sewing on it!

  2. I love your version of Apron Strings. I made mine 6". Two challenges: small and scrappy...but I'm learning.

    Enjoy your week!

  3. Oh Jane, I LOVE your quilt square! The fabrics you used are absolutely delightful. Hugs to you!

  4. Just ordered the book. Organizing my sewing room and have lots of fun fabrics to use.

  5. Very cute! I can't decide on the large or small block size! One of each in a totally different fabric style?!! lol NOT to decide IS to decide!!

  6. Love those fabrics and how your block looks!

  7. Love the colors and fabrics you are using! I can't figure out what we are supposed to be doing. People have been writing to me and asking and I said, "don't ask me...I have no idea". I think we are doing a 12" and a 6" block each week in the same order they appear in the book. Oh well, I made a 6" yesterday and it seemed so tiny after all the 12" blocks I've been making. Again, love your block! Beautiful, as usual.

  8. I just ordered the book yesterday for my Mother's Day gift from ME to ME. So, I guess I better start thinking about a pile of fabric. I like 12 inch too. The little blocks are cute but sometimes a bit intense. I am making 12 inch for my local quilt club too
    Jane, your block looks great. I really like the Daysail fabrics Everything Bonnie and Camille dream up is amazing. Happy Monday

  9. I really really like your fabrics and how you positioned them!

  10. Oh Jane your block looks great. Love the fabrics so glad you open it. Thoughs fabrics are awesome.

  11. Love it! I tend to hoard fabrics too.

  12. A lovely block, Jane! Lots of pretty fabrics and colours!
