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.

An introductory into Marti Michell's Templete System Meet Perfect Patchwork Template Sets A and B - YouTube
During the video with Jen Kingwell she mentioned Sue Daley. Susan Daley has a complete series on English Paper Piecing. I found this one to be very informative Ep 1 How to Sew Hexagons - Sue Daley's Shape Up English Paper Piecing School - YouTube
I am going to be using foundation paper piecing (FPP) and I will be trying Marti Michell's Templates. Due to Arthritis I will not be able to do much hand work.
As I read the book, I love each woman and what they went through during the 1930s and appreciate that these letter have been preserved.
I hope you enjoy the videos and will join us all September 28th for The Farmer's Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt Sew Along!
I did get my book spiral bond so it lays flat. I had to go to (2) different shops but the cost was only $4.90, very worth the price.
