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

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…

Technique Basics for the Sew Along

During "The Farmer's Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt Sew Along" there will be opportunities to learn new techniques. I learn better with visual aids so I turned to YouTube to find some videos! These are not videos on the book but on how to do the basic techniques and the tools they use to do them. Which sent me scrammbling to order myself a few supplies to have on hand. I hope you enjoy them.Sew Easy: Paper Foundation Piecing - YouTube, Fons and Porter.An introductory into Marti Michell's Templete System Meet Perfect Patchwork Template Sets A and B - YouTubeHow to English Paper Piece by Jen Kingwell - Fat Quarter Shop - YouTube
