The publisher of The Famer's Wife Sampler Quilt book by Laurfie Hird has given us permission to share Marti's template conversion information with you. If you would like to receive a PDF every two weeks so you can cut your 6-inch blocks with From Marti Michell templates, please sign up below. Mailings begin the first Friday in January, 2012.
Marti cut 101 of the 111 blocks in the book with our templates. There are 10 blocks in the book that cannot be cut with our templates, so Marti has substituted six-inch blocks from her books and other instructional materials - which means she was able to rotary-cut all of her blocks with acrylic templates! And because our templates have specially engineered corners, extra bulk is removed before sewing, so small blocks like these come out great!
The blocks given in the PDFs do not follow the order in whicih they are given in the book. Marti has grouped blocks together by which of our template sets they have in common, and the blocks are referred to by the name and number Laurie assigned to them. There are 10 blocks per PDF and 10 PDFs total.
You must own a copy of Laurie's book, as only our template information is given in the PDFs.
Thank you for your interest, and thanks for cutting with templates!
