Week 10: Carolina and Caroline | 2018 Farmer's Wife 1930s Sew Along

We're back this week with Carolina Block 19 and Caroline Block #20.  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 19 and 20 to make Ava #10 and Daffodil #26 in the "Blocks Made in the Order of Tools Used" list on my blog.  Scroll down on that page to find the Charts listed in numerical order.  We've got a great little trick for cutting the honeycomb shape for Ava. ** Remember, you will not be eligible for sew along prizes if you do not follow the order given in the book. **

Carolina, Block #19

Use our Template Conversion Chart #69 for this block. You might be surprised how we cut some of the pieces!


Caroline, Block #20

In the original sew along, we made Caroline early on and talked about selecting fabrics. Even now, it's worth reading this article, as it may help you think about gathering fabrics for scrap quilts a bit  differently. Click here to go to that blog post and our Template Conversion Chart #4.  





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.
