Nellie Block 77 Farmers Wife 1930s

Image
Hello all Farmer's Wife 1930s lovers I thought I'd share my block for last week #77 Nellie. You can find information about the blocks released last week over at Angie's Nellie is Block 77 of Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt - GnomeAngelI used the foundation paper piecing technique to complete this block. Looking at the book I saw the block one way and when I started putting it together realized I was really happy I used a non-directional fabric in the sections I did not "fussy cut". I had to turn a few pieces upside down so it didn't come out different than the book. Yes, I said I turned them upside down. The "Nellie" block just begged to have a little fussy cutting. It will added to the final quilt my love of the beach. The Official blogger for #77 Nellie is Sedef and you can find her tutorial

Farmer's Wife 1930s Em 30

Hello and welcome to "In The Boon Docks", my home in blogland, as an Official Blogger for the Farmer's Wife 1930s Sampler Sew Along! This weeks block is #30 Em. Angie's tutorial of Gnome Angel Em is Block 30 of Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt - GnomeAngel. Without Angie there would be no sew along, she is an expert organizer besides her other career success'! I have to admit I love this block and hate it. I picked out a few seams putting it together. I used the Foundation Paper Pieced (FPP) method to piece the block with its many little tiny squares and half square triangles. Lining up everything at the end proved to be a bit difficult for me but I won the battle in the end and I am quite pleased with my block.A few tips that may help you with this block. First, recently I found using a 11 needle in the machine helpful when sewing FPP blocks with a stitch length of 1.6. Next, it makes it much easier to sew the FPP pieces together if the fabric is…

Block 39 GrandmaHello Everyone! Well here we are at my day for posting in the Farmer's Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt Sew-along, The day after Thanksgiving for those of you living in the USA. I have seen so many beautiful blocks in all kinds of fabric combinations that you can view in the Facebook Group. This is the first of four post I will be doing over the next year. I am a Blogger of the week. Exciting and scary at the same time. I am very grateful to the Fat Quarter Shop, and Gnomeangel for giving me the opportunity to participate as an official blogger. The letter for this block from a woman of later age really hit home for me. She reminded me of my grandma. Grandma came to live with use when I was 2. She had married young, raised 5 children, on a farm not 5 miles from her parents farm, her birthplace. When the last child graduated from high school and married she came to live with us to help care for me while my parents worked. She was a strong woman who had never left…
