Week 5: Autumn and Ava Blocks | 2018 Farmer's Wife 1930s Sew Along

It's Friday of week 5 and we're up to Autumn and Ava, blocks 9 and 10 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 9 and 10 to make Granny #41 and Jenny #45 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. **

Autumn, Block #9

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!  (Ignore the references to the November dates and make the 8-1/2 inch Set B mystery quilt blocks if you want!)

Ava, Block #10

Ava is a great block for learning two cool template tricks -- you can easily cut the center shape with a square.  And for times when you may not have a small enough (or large enough) square template, we show you how to use a triangle to cut its matching size square! Click here to go to that blog post and our Template Conversion Chart #19. Have fun making Ava! 

You'll find all the links for the blocks and our template conversion charts 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.
