Monthly Quilt Block 2008






This was a block of the month quilt designed for the year 2008 for beginners. A few of my neighbor friends wanted to learn to quilt and requested I teach some classes. Once a month for a year I designed and taught blocks to celebrate each month. I had no idea the quilt would end up so big. Really, I promise! It just kept going and going like the energizer bunny.




I had so many fun ideas I wanted to do, and some of the blocks I loved so much I just kept making more. Of course they all had to keep fitting into my vision of what I thought the quilt would look like.

The quilt starts in the center with a snowflake for January. Hearts along the outside for February. Windmills for March. April are the cute Easter baskets and as you can see I couldn't just make one I made twelve. May flowers were also cute and I kept sewing and sewing. June was a square in a square because I was trying to be simple. July are the cute stars and August are the flags that I love. September is the school house down in the bottom left corner celebrating back to school. Pumpkins at the top (or apples as I was told by a friend, either way they're fun) for October. November are the maple leaves and December are the stockings. One stocking for each of my four cute children who are too big to fight over which stocking is theirs. I have to say this was a fun project. You can see more of my projects at http://www.jinabarneydesignz.com

Farm Girl Vintage "Woolly Sheep"

Woolly Sheep is the last block on the  Farm Girl Vintage Friday Blog Hop Sew-Along.

It has been sew much fun sewing along  with Lori Holt, Fat Quarter Shop and all of you every Friday. 


I have a pile of super cute Farm Girl Blocks that I can't wait to start piecing together to make a fabulous quilt. 


I wanted my sheep to be white so I used low volume fabrics...I'm going to add some embroidery around the edge of the sheep to help the outline pop.

My Woolly Sheep and I  took a little field trip to Birdseye, Utah.  My sister-in-law and her husband  live on a ranch... It was the perfect spot for some  Farm Girl Vintage photos.

 Don't you love this old farm truck!

The setting was a beautiful, peaceful, tranquil day.

We were able to take these photos with the perfect backdrop for Woolly Sheep.

There is so much to LOVE about this fun book that includes all upper and lower case letters. It also features complete instructions for 100 letters, numbers, punctuation and picture blocks in 6" and 12" block size, plus 18 quilt projects!

 I used "Yes Please" fabric line by  My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake Designs. The color palette is black and off white with a touch  of rose gold. The simplicity of the colors lends itself to sophistication.

I have a fun project planned with the blocks I will be making.  Right now I have my binding by Vintage Door wrapped around my Binding Baby which is made by Shari for Doohikey Designs.

You can see how adorable my Binding Baby is and how she keeps my binding from unraveling while waiting to be used.
