Haystack, Kettle's On, and Kitchen Window Blocks

Here we go, with some more finished blocks
from the Farm Girl Vintage sew along!

The first one I'm showing today was fun and easy to make:

{I think it's constructed just like the traditional block called Courthouse Steps.}

I chose all my prints with similar values,
but the center block is actually a bit lighter than the others.
I really love those tiny spatulas in that fabric!

The next block in Farm Girl Vintage is called Kettle's On!
I love my tea every morning,
so I looked forward to stitching this pretty block.

It was fun to make a yellow spout and lid,
topped off with a little red knob. I love the aqua kettle, too.

Next up was the block called Kitchen Window.
I've been using navy fabric as a "zinger"
for my blocks, so I used the dark fabric for my window frame.

The fabrics in the "window" glow like it's nighttime.

I'm really having fun blending all my 30's style prints,
to make some fresh new blocks with a vintage vibe.

Be sure to come back soon and often, to see more!
