Week 5

Hello Everyone! I was really running late in week 4, I have it written but I don't want to get further behind! . Sorry, I didn't get my post up! I really enjoying the linkups each week and she is going to start doing giveaways! So many beautiful blocks in all kinds of fabric combinations that you can view if you join the Facebook Group or follow the link to the Link Up Party. There will be (4) weeks over the next year when I will be a Blogger of the Week.

Week 5 - Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt Sew-along Link Up Party - GnomeAngel. This week tutorials and From Marti Michell Quilting Blog: Chart 9: Granny, Farmer's Wife 1930s Sew-along, From Marti Michell Quilting Blog: Chart 10: Jenny, Parallelograms 101 , conversion charts were released for blocks 41 and 45.

Angie of Gnome Angel - Jenny is Block 45 of Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt

I used the Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP) technique this week on both my blocks included in the book. I do not have much experience with FPP but I am learning so much doing this sew along. Practice, practice, practice, is the only way to master a skill. The solids are for my blocks are Cotton Supreme Solids, RJR Fabrics and prints are Pie Making Day, by Brenda Ratliff, RJR Fabrics.

I only piece with Aurifil 50wt. thread! If your using the best fabrics you should use the best thread!

I have to say I did something wrong on Jenny - why you ask? I sewed it backwards! If anyone can do it, it's me. But it is pretty so I am keeping it.


I am linking up to the party! Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt Sew-along Link Up Party - GnomeAngel come along for a look! Looking can be as fun as making. It is not to late to buy the book and jump in! Go back during slow times and do the blocks you missed! We would love to have you, Lisa







  1. I feel like if we use the printable foundation paper piecing templates from the book, our blocks are backward from the pictures in the book. That might be too much cold medicine talking though.

  2. I love your cheerful blocks, Lisa! Even if one is backwards it is so pretty and happy. I really wanted to participate in this, but I just have way too many UFO's, so I am watching what others are doing and enjoying it that way. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I'm loving your blocks and I'm so thrilled that you're stitching along. I'm loving these big pops of yellow. Can't wait to see them all together.
