"Farm Girl Vintage" blog hop

It's my turn on the Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along!! Thanks to Lori of Bee in My Bonnet, and the Fat Quarter Shop, some of us bloggers have been entertaining and enticing you on Fridays!

Each Friday another blogger has showcased one of the cute blocks in Lori's new book.

Today, I'm showing you my block -- Grandma's Quilt Block!  OOOPS!

You know we "keep it real" here at the Lilypad . . .  do you see anything wrong with my first block? Do you think I was in too much of a hurry at that point? (Grin)

I chose happy, summery colors that look a lot like reproduction prints -- they are actually from an older line by Mary Engelbreit, called "Friends and Flowers."

Love how these colors make me think of summer fun! Here is the completed block:

I actually put together three of these cute blocks, and thought I would put them on point for a table runner:

Now, I'm auditioning fabrics for the setting triangles:


What do you think?

Be sure to hop over to see more of the blocks that are detailed in the book!
