Continuing with...Corn and Tomatoes, Country Crossroads, and Crops

I'm having such a great fun sewing from my
Farm Girl Vintage book by Lori Holt.
What a great sew along!

I'm caught up with the blocks but haven't kept up
with corresponding blog posts.
Today I'll share 3 more cute blocks,
starting with Corn and Tomatoes.

This block was near and dear to my heart,
because corn and tomatoes are a great source of
color inspiration!

{These fresh ingredients make a fabulous corn salad!}

I found the Corn and Tomatoes block to be a real treat to stitch.
My "Fresh Air" American Jane fabrics 
give me a few sweet reds to start with.
I tossed in a butter yellow print, too,
from Bake Sale by Lori Holt.

This block had fewer pieces than most, so pretty soon,
my block was finished.

I'm such a fan of pinwheels,
and I love the way the points meet in the middle.

I love using my "design boards" that I made
following this tutorial.

Next up was another simple block:
Country Crossroads.

I went with blue and pink prints this time.
I like making each block a little different,
for my vintage quilt.
Polka dots fit right in!

Snowball blocks and sashing make this easy!

 Next up we have the clever "Crops" block.
I really like the way the leaves
are composed of two fabrics in the same color.

The finished block is cute on its own,
but I plan to pop a flower block onto the stem someday.

Come back often
to watch my Farm Girl Vintage blocks accumulating!
