Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along #farmgirlfridays - Autumn Star Block

Hello, Farm Girl friends! It's Katie here, and I am so glad that you are joining me on the Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along blog hop. I absolutely love Lori's latest book, Farm Girl Vintage! There are 45 stunning blocks packed into this lovely work...a serious feast for your quilty soul! 
This week, I made the 12-inch Autumn Star block which can be found on page 9. I started by making one block with a Gardenvale charm pack by Jen Kingwell and Art Gallery Fabrics Pure Elements in Empire Yellow.
I love the Folded Corner Clipper for all of Lori's patterns. It chops off the corners, leaving a quarter inch seam allowance. No need to draw that diagonal line! 
So, why not make three blocks?! Here is my Autumn Star table runner. It finishes at 12" x 36". I bound it with Sara Lawson's Jungle Ave in Dotted Boulevard. Yes, I did use this blog hop as an excuse to buy macroons. I needed them to make this photo even lovelier (nom nom nom). 
OK, let's switch tables because there are macaroon crumbs on the other table...
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Check out Sew Fresh Quilts today to see Lorna and her adorable baby chick block. I can't wait to see what you make, use #farmgirlfridays.

Happy Mother's Day to all you quilty moms out there!!! Enjoy your weekend!
