Feeling Farmy!

It's Farm Girl Friday! Today I am finishing up a table runner. It took me a little while to decide what fabric to use for the binding. I thought this bandanna fabric looked too much like a Farm girl to not use it. 

The table runner is from Lori Holt's new book: Farm Girl Vintage. On each end of the runner there is a pieced barn with a silo. I am a little ahead on my Farm Girl Friday blocks, so I decided to make the runner. If you haven't joined Lori's Farm Girl Friday quilt along it's not too late. 
Here are my blocks. I took this picture last week so my newly completed blocks are not included in the picture.  They are each 6 1/2" square (give or take a little :)
Blocks top left to bottom right: Apron Strings, Autumn Star, Baby Chick, Baking Day, Butter Churn, Canning Season, Chicken Foot, and Churn Dash.

Little m made me a snack one day while I was quilting (with a little supervision from Sister). She got out Sister's Easy Bake oven (it's about 15 years old) and made me pretzels with powder cheese sauce, cut up some apples and strawberries and yogurt for dessert. I was very surprised by the pretzels, they were really good especially for an Easy Bake Oven mix. She did this all by herself and since she is not allowed to use a sharp knife without my supervision, she cut up the apple with a butter knife. She loves the Easy Bake Oven! I am always amazed every time we use it. I can't believe that a light bulb can cook things. Guess we will have to buy the new Easy Bake Oven when our light bulb burns out.
Hope you have an Easy kind of day!!


  1. Your runner will be so beautiful. I've never learned to quilt but someday I would like to try. Enjoy your weekend! Hugs, Diane

  2. Your blocks are so cute!! And I think the bandanna is a perfect touch to the farm girl! Can't wait to see it all done! :) How sweet of your little girl to make you a wonderful snack! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! xo Holly

  3. Can't wait to see more of your table runner. Your little chef did a wonderful job with her special snacks.
