Farmer's Wife 1930's Quilt Sampler | Week 4
**This post contains affiliate links**
Wow! This week was exciting! Three more blocks done! Although not without some frustrations. That being said, I am happy with how all my blocks are coming together. Here are the blocks from week 4 since I am slightly behind posting, now that we are at the end of week 5. All of my Farmer's Wife 1930's Quilt Sampler blocks this week were cut using the templates from the book.
Block 8 : #78 Old Maid
Made from some Amy Butler and some other scraps. I love the colors on this one Although, for what ever reason, this one and I didn't get along well. The first time I made it, I gained a half-inch. Not sure what or how that happened. Second time was better, but still a little big. Oh, well. Quilting is not perfect, right??
Block 9 : #94 Susannah
Next came Susannah. I liked this one. It came together quickly and easily, after I figured out I had to cut each of the accent fabrics separately to have them all going the same direction. I used some fabrics that I have used in various baby blankets that I have made for my etsy shop.
Block 10 - #49 Katherine
And one more this week! I like how this one came out as well. It again took me a bit to realize how to cut the fabric with the templates so that all the pieces would be the correct direction. This is made with scrap fabrics from my stash.
Now on to write week 5's post. Have a wonderful Halloween all! Posts on the kids costumes to come! That is part of the reason I was behind....sewing costumes for five littles takes a lot of time!
