When I saw the Farm Fun fabric line by Stacy Iest Hsu for Moda, I thought of my cousin Sarah, and I thought, "I should order that when it comes out, just to have for if Sarah has a baby!" Sarah is a farmer's daughter, and a full-fledged farmer herself, so I knew it would be perfect.
Well, lo and behold, we found out that Sarah's would be a mama! Yeay! So I pre-ordered a layer cake and a jelly roll of Farm Fun. I find most of my quilting inspiration from Pinterest, which is where I got the idea for this pattern. Just slice the layer cake from one corner to the other, slap some jelly roll strip in the middle and arrange. It was such a quick cut and a quick sew - my fastest quilt finish ever (as long as you don't count the jelly roll race quilt I made for Sarah's nephew, Luke...)! I started on the Farm Fun Quilt on January 2nd and had it finished around mid-February! Woo hoo! I might not be the world's slowest quilter!!!
|I quilted it on my itty bitty beginner machine, on either side of each seam.|
Does that "style" of quilting have a name?
I love the results!

Behind the quilt is my hunny in his bunny boots!
|I used a low volume green for the binding the the back. |
The quilt is just narrow enough that I didn't have to piece the back.
Unfortunately, I forgot to measure it...
