GOT MILK????


You would think I could have straightened this row for ya but you get the picture.

This is the first month for our Row by Row.  My sister, Jeanetter, and 5 nieces have decided to join in this.
We set up simple rules.  We are using the Lori Holt books, "Farm Girl Vintage" and                              "Farm Girl Vintage 2".  Actually any bock that is 12 1/2 inches, 6 1/2 inches,
 4 1/2 inches, and 2 1/2 inches.
Jeanette took the first month and she chose these Milking Cans and as you can see, I added the cows and letters.  Two have already done theirs and they used just the milking cans, large and small...super cute.

Made this so simple for everyone.  They can make their row as long or as short as they want.  They can add what they want.  There is a prize for the one who finishes their row first for that month.  Jeanette's daughter Beverly did hers the first day in January....what an over achiever.....

Besides doing this row I have been working on a few log cabin blocks, I have five done.  Too lazy to take a picture....not ashamed to admit it.

Those cows are adorable! I have that book but have yet to make anything out of it. Maybe someday.

I was just surfing some quilting blogs and came across your. Loved your idea of mixing it up with Lori Holts. I dug out my Farm Girl Vintage which I had been going through last year without starting anything. So I dug out her Spelling Bee. Look forward to reading more of your blog. Good way to start the New Year. Thanks for sharing.

Looks like a goo farm inspired quilt along! Love to see those log cabin blocks too... will they be part of the same quilt in some way?

There is one in every group - the overachiever and the one getting it done at the last minute. I love this playing with your sister and nieces....it will be fun to watch the projects grow.

That sounds like fun. I may have to try that with some friends.
