You can join in any time! Template Conversion Charts for the Farmer's Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt are on Marti's blog and will stay up for the duration or the sew-along! :) If you are participating in The Farmer's Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt hosted by Gnome Angel's blog in partnership with From Marti Michell, these are the tools Marti used to make her blocks for the quilt. Most of them are the same tools Marti used for the Jen Kingwell Long Time Gone Sew Along, which was also hosted by Marti and Gnome Angel, and info about making that quilt can still be found on those blogs.

These template sets are used in the 1930s Farmer's Wife and Jen Kingwell's Long Time Gone quilts:
Set A #8251
Set B #8252
Set D #8254
Set S #8166
And Set N #8956

You must have a copy of the book to use the template conversion charts. All the tools Marti used for both quilts are listed below in alphabetical order -- So Template Set A, B, etc., will be further down on the list. Not all of them are needed for the Jen Kingwell Long Time Gone sew along. Click here for a PDF of those tools.

For more information about the Farmer's Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt Sew Along or the Jen Kingwell Sew Along visit Marti's blog or visit Gnome Angel's blog.

If you are interested in the 1920s Farmer's Wife template conversion charts, those are available as 10 PDFs through an email program that we run a few times each year. The next mailing begins on December 29, 2017, and you can sign up for that email list using our newsletter signup button. The way it works out (because the 6-inch Farmer's Wife blocks are 3x3, 4x4, 5x5, etc), 101 of the 111 blocks in the Farmer's Wife book can be cut with several different sets of our templates. Marti actually cut all 111 blocks for her quilt with templates, but substituting 10 other blocks, like LeMoyne Star and a 5-patch basket, and she made a really cute little block with 3 rows of mini Tumblers.

The most frequently used sets are A, B, D, N and S. The most blocks you can make with one set is Set B, followed by Set A. Occasionally a piece or pieces from another set is used, like two pcs. in Set M come up once or twice, one from C. And if you own the 1"-2" Log Cabin Ruler, or the small Kaleido-Ruler, they're handy for a few other blocks. That kind of thing. Each time a new mailing runs, we send a PDF conversion chart every 2 weeks. There are 10 PDFs; each one has about 10 blocks grouped by which of our template sets they can be cut with, and the first one is Set B. The 2nd uses Sets B and A, etc. The 10th PDF has 6 or 7 blocks to cut with Set S, and the PDFs in between use a mix of templates.

You do need to have a copy of the book to use the PDFs; we didn't duplicate the block diagrams but reference them by their name and number in the book. The best thing about making your blocks with templates is that Marti eliminates seams wherever possible, so you can get used to looking at a block design and thinking about ways to cut/sew more efficiently.

Well, really the best thing about making your blocks with templates is IT'S MORE FUN! :) We hope you have fun making your new quilt.
