It was a McQuilty Day!

The Farmer's Wife 1940s Sew Along Logo

This week kicks off the first week of Gnome Angel's Farmer's Wife 1930s Sew Along.  

At McKnittey, we are multi-craftual so Friday's are set aside for quilting.

McKnittey Farmer's Wife Sew Along Week 1

I am using Marti Michell's templates for the sew along. But, two of the blocks did not require the templates so what I found very helpful was the Perfect Patchwork Corner Trimmer. Using it allows you to trim out all the dog ears while quickly matching seams.

I am sewing with Carolyn Friedlander's Architectures and Botanics by Robert Kaufmann and Superior Threads MasterPiece. I pressed the seams open on all the blocks but Aunt choosing to press the seam allowances to the dark fabric.
