Vintage Farmhouse BOM

Good morning everyone!

At first I hesitated to post more about our Vintage Farmhouse BOM because we had so many of you that wanted to join and we just didnt have enough spots for all of you. We ran out of a few key pieces of fabric early on and weren't able to accomodate everybody. We always try to plan for the biggest number possible, but you often surprise us with your tremendous interest and then we are stuck. Sorry about that.

All that to say, I wasn't going to talk too much about it given the shortage. But since there ARE so many of you who are working on it and after receiving yet more emails and commments that you really want to feel connected and to see the progress... here goes a little photo journey of some of the blocks.

Some of them you have already done, some you will be doing soon. After the next shipment you will be able to put together the bottom section [the one hanging on the back porch railing] and soon after that we will be able to do the same with the  left side!! This quilt is coming together soon ladies!

I am loving it!





















For those of you who are interested in our brand new BOM: Fig Tree's Modern Building Blocks from MODA, you have until this weekend to sign up . This time we are hoping to give everyone a chance so don't miss out. Click HERE for more info on that.




Happy Sewing Everyone!



I'm super loving this BOM, Joanna! The colors are yummy and the piecing is fun-except for that pesky big pinwheel block comprised of HST:/ I may need to use some starch on that baby! How did you get yours so flat? Mine has a bit of a hump in the middle.

I am glad to see that you are posting about this BOM. I kind of felt abandoned! I also struggled with some of the earlier blocks. It might have been nice to add tips and hints as we went along.That said, I love the colors and blocks and am sure the finished quilt will be lovely.

Love your pics and this BOM! The colors are so yummy! Thanks for showing the completed blocks :)

We havent heard of anyone struggling with any of the blocks. Please feel free to let me know if you need help with anything as you are working on them. There are tips and hints in every block within the instructions so hopefully those are helping you as you go along.


They have been so much fun to make along the way. Cant wait to tackle the house!

Hey Jeanie-

That one just has sooooooo many 1/2 square triangles that we used our Flatter spray too. Its not starch but does get it all to lie flat. Starch would be a great idea too!

So glad you are having fun with it!


I think it looks wonderful! And just go ahead and post all the pictures and progress! I think it's fun to look at and I'm not participating in it. I will live vicariously through all of those who are! :)

I wasn't able to get into the bom program but am thrilled to see the pics of it coming together. The blog allows us all to participate in some fashion! It's truly beautiful.

Joanna- Thank you for posting pictures. Now I see that I reversed
the pink-red and the red fabrics!! But it is coming out beautifully anyway. I am enjoying the process and happy to see how some of the sections will go together!

Thanks so much for following along with us!




I think interchanging those on some of the blocks will be just fine. I wouldnt worry about it. I am so glad that you are liking the process so far!
