Weeks 8 & 9: Blossom, Bonnie, Bride & Carol | 2018 Farmer's Wife 1930s Sew Along

Catching up with Week 8 and ahead of the block in week 9!  Last week's blocks were Blossom and Bonnie, Blocks #15 and 16.  This week it's time for Bride and Carol, #17 and 18 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 15 and 16 to make Jewel #46 and Sara #90 in the "Blocks Made in the Order of Tools Used" list on my blog.  You will also want Charts 17 and 18 for Patience #79 with Patricia #80, and Grandma #39.  I also had fun with some paper flowers and talked about diagonal block grids. Remember, you will not be eligible for sew along prizes if you do not follow the order given in the book. **

Blossom, Block #15

Use our Template Conversion Chart #41 for this block -- and get a head start on Blocks 77 and 98 if you want!

Bonnie, Block #16

Bonnie was made in the first week -- Ready, Set, Sew! -- in the original sew along. We used Log Cabin Ruler #8037 to cut perfect strips. Click here to go to that blog post and our Template Conversion Chart #1.  

Bride, Block #17

Use our Template Conversion Chart #68 for this block. We also included a sweet little Bridal quilt in the PDF.

Carol, Block #18

We used Carol as a comparison for Sets A and B to discuss the 3x3 and 4x4 grids used to make 12-inch blocks with them -- you can make a bazillion 12 inch block designs with them! Use this line Template Conversion Chart #62 to go to that blog post. Have fun making your blocks! 

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.
