Week 4: Augusta and Aunt Blocks | 2018 Farmer's Wife 1930s Sew Along

Hi Everyone! This week, we're making Augusta and Aunt, Blocks #7 and #8 in the Farmer's Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt book.  Links to my blog posts with the template conversion charts and tutorials for those blocks are given below.  ** If you are making two blocks per week in the same order that I did, you will want Charts 7 and 8 to make Old Maid #78 and Katherine #49 with Susannah #94 in the "Blocks Made in the Order of Tools Used" list on my blog. Remember, you will not be eligible for sew along prizes if you do not follow the order given in the book. **

Augusta, Block #7

Use our Template Conversion Chart #56 for this block.  We've got an easy way to cut the long triangles with template D-23 -- our templates know all kinds of nifty cutting tricks!  

Aunt, Block #8

Aunt is a fun little Square Within a Square block. Click here to go to that blog post and our Template Conversion Chart #2. Plus a bonus quilt, our 40-inch Ramblin' Stars made with Set A and 8-inch Square Within a Square blocks.  (Set A makes SWAS blocks in 3 sizes!)

You'll find all the links for the blocks here on my blog.

And here's the link for Gnome Angel's tutorials -- you'll want to read both of our blogs so you don't miss anything!

Info about the From Marti Michell tools used to make the blocks is also on my blog.

If you have any questions about the sew along, the answers may be in Gnome Angel's sew along FAQs or the official Facebook page for the sew along.

If you are looking for our 1920s template conversion charts, that is an email program that we do about every six months. Complete information about those charts is here on my blog.
