Default Variation of the Theme -- "Fun on the Farm" BOM

I joined in Eleanor Burns free Fun on the Farm BOM, but quickly found I wasn't falling in love with the blocks. I guess that's part of the risk of doing mystery quilts. I ended up using Eleanor's patterns for three blocks, then drafting up my own for the other blocks. It's was a lot of fun and we had a very creative crew here on the QB doing it together.

My girls absolutely love this quilts! This one is for my three yr old and I'll be starting a second for my two year old right away (tomorrow!)

I appliqued all the blocks on my vintage Pfaff 130 and stitched and quilted it all on my vintage Singer 15-91. This is the first quilt of mine that I seem to have mastered consistent FMQing stitches! At last! Practice is paying off!

This was the first time I tried basting with Elmers washable school glue. I am in love with that method now! I didn't get any pluckers on the back and no hard lumps of glue. Thank you to those of you who shared using glue for basting!! I might be able to finish some of my tops now.

Thank you! Let's put it this way, I didn't design the pig, sunflower and barn. And the sashing is from Eleanor Burns farm quilt too.

You do beautiful work. Yes, you have mastered quilting for sure. How fun for your little ones to have their own barn-yard quilts.

That quilt is totally precious. You did fantastic on it. I love the criss-cross in the sashing. I can see why your girls love it so much. I bet they had a part in it too which would make it even more special. Thanks for the show & tell.
