Farm Girl Vintage Finish - Red Border

I finished my second quilt using my Farm Girl Vintage blocks. I love this one so much! I used all my favorites and the color scheme is more me than the green one. This quilt is #11 on my Q2 FAL list.

Here is the whole quilt! I had my two oldest children hold up this quilt because there is something about a straight on shot that really shows off a quilt.

I picked my favorite blocks for this quilt and made a few more so it could be a little bigger. I love the primary colors with many 1930s prints for this one. The border is my favorite!! It is the extra wide backing from Vintage Picnic by Bonnie and Camille.

This has got to be my favorite of all the blocks. The cherries and the fabrics are so fun!

Here's a close up with the border and binding. I used the same fabric for the back, border, and binding. It was 108" wide and I got all of this from one 2 1/4 yard piece, it was amazing! I did 2" cross hatching with this one and love the simplicity here.

One more shot that included the tag. It has been a while since I finished this one, as you can see by the tag, but I was so on the ball with so many other projects I had to wait to share. I was grateful for the time I had to catch up on a few other things.
