Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt Along


I'm ready! This wonderful Sew Along is beginning September 28! That's this Monday! As the Farmgirl Vintage Sew Along is just about to end, I'm all set to start a new project, (Hope that sounds familiar to many of you!)


Here's the fabric I bought. I also have many solids left over from Arcadia Avenue that I plan on using.  Most of these fabrics are Moda Chloe's Closet 30's Playtime Favorites. I also bought a few fat quarters of Penny Rose Mini's 30's. I'm not even sure what size quilt I'm going to make. I'll figure that out as we go along. The blocks are 6 1/2 inches square which is the same size as the Farmgirl Vintage blocks. The book contains directions using templates, rotary cutter as well as paper piecing. The book is fabulous! There are letters included from women who lived during the depression. Many different emotions are presented in these letters. They're wonderful to read.


If you're interested, you can read about the Sew Along here. You still have time! Gnome Angel will be our guide, She has some great ideas and lots of info on her blog. Would love to have you join in the fun!!
