Waiting for the Villagers to show up with Torches and Pitchforks....

Happy Saturday morning! I've only done a few blocks in the last couple of days because I'm working on that stupid quilt to sell that I used too small a quilting stitch on and it's taking forever. I may have to keep it because, if it sells, I will make negative money.... Here's the Stash Bee block that Jackie chose for May. Let me just say that in my entire sewing career, there is one pattern that I can never get right. It is the Kaleidoscope block. Of course, that what Jackie wants. Here's my sad little block:
Oh well, I'm not going to re-do it. Jackie can toss it if she wants. I did some more of the Flower Box blocks for the Sew Along:
Good excuse to use that adorable bicycle fabric. Now you are probably wondering about the title of this blog post. Let me just say...I DIDN'T MEAN IT! Here's the story. I am on Instagram now. Lori Holt has a Farm Girl Friday Quilt Along going and a lot of people are posting their blocks there. There was a lot of hype touting this quilt along during the last month or so. Of course, I love everything Lori does and so I was eagerly awaiting the first Friday's project. Apparently we are going to make blocks together from the book, Farm Girl Vintage. I thought instead that she would be designing a whole new quilt using the blocks from the book and some new ones, like she has always done in the past. Here's the first block that was our assignment this week:
So I mentioned on Instagram that I was wishing for more than just doing blocks from the book. YIKES! You would have thought that I suggested that we all get together and shave down all the Shih Tzu's in the world or something equally as heinous. Lori Holt is VERY popular. I love her. I love her patterns. She is a designing and marketing genius. Please, if you are a Lori supporter, don't scold me! I have been handily shamed! So that's my exciting life. Wish I could learn to keep my mouth shut! Oh well, you know me...sigh. Hope you have a great weekend! XO from Bev

I thought in one of Lori's post she said there would be new quilt and block designs for the Farm Girl quilt along? Sorry to hear they are ready to lynch you. Turn the dog loose on them and fire a few shots in the air. Stand your ground! I got your back with my machete!

I would like some additions to the book too! I did make the little pin cushion tutorial she posted the other day.

I'm sitting here laughing at the picture you painted with the villagers and the pitch always make me smile. Your fabrics are terrific. I'm passing on most all the QALs this year trying to make myself finish at least one WIP this year. Here it is May and nothing finished yet...giggle. In my old age I'm really getting lazy.

oh dear so you have offended some stitchers not to worry. Must look into this farm girl quilt but when I went onto her blog the only way I could follow seemed to be with google+ and I have avoided that like the plague as there have been problems with it. The block looks good and so does the kaleidescope one

Your blocks are so happy and fun--love them! I think we've all had run-ins with the Villagers--shake it off--they aren't worth the stress.

LOL oh girl, you have me laughing out loud! Some people are just too serious, aren't they? Love your happy blocks!

Heather said...

Haha, that made me laugh. I didn't get the farm girl vintage book because i just started the quilt from Quilty Fun. I love Lori's blog but I too thought perhaps it would be a different quilt for this QAL. But who knows, she may have some surprises coming!
