Farmer's Wife 1930s Quilt Sampler Sewalong - Week 2
Posted by Kelli Ladwig on
I received my book this week. Very exciting! It seems more colorful and contemporary than the previous book with the photos having a more Pinterest quality to them.
This week's blocks, selected by Gnome Angel and her team, were Caroline (20) and Betty(14).
The Betty block is my favorite to date because it has ledger fabric in it. My husband is an accountant and this fabric tickles him. I think it adds whimsy.
The fabric I am using are from Carolyn Friedlander's Architextures and Botanics collection.
I used my Marti Michell templates to make them.
Marti has good pointers on her blog about getting your 1/4" seam allowance and organizing your fabric.
I love your fabric choices. I am a big fan of ledger too. I now wish I was using it! And the yellow with the grey is great.
