Blossom: The Farmer's Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt


 I was admiring the book, The Farmer's Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt by Laurie Aaron Hird when Kerry announced her quilt a long group and what better reason to follow through with good intentions than to join a group. This is my block, Blossom. I chose to foundation piece the block to keep it neat and tidy as these blocks finish about 6 inches square. 


I have also decided to use authentic, vintage 1930s and 40s prints for this quilt. The solids are not vintage as those tend to be harder to come by, I have used Moda 'Betty's Red' for this block. This project will be a good use of my scrap bin fabrics and deconstructed damaged quilts that I have rescued over the years. However, foundation paper piecing tends to eat up fabrics or maybe thats just me? I may opt for  the EPP templates to hand piece some blocks. I love that the book comes with printable patterns for english paper piecing or foundation piecing as well as coloring/layout pages to plan each block. I'm looking forward to knocking out quite a few of these blocks as the weather cools. 


And for some reason, I am drawn to red and blue vintage fabrics so that theme may emerge as well. 

TIPS:

-When paper piecing, follow the order for sewing and joining sections  provided in the patterns  and your seams will nest nicely
-I used Best Press on the fabric before cutting into individual pattern pieces, which helps at keeping your block crisp at every step
- I used a 2" strip for the smaller pieces, which I  then sub-cut as needed





I do hope that you'll join along! 
Thanks for stopping by.

Really lovely! That red is perfect, and I adore your little pile of salvaged vintage bits. I'm a gingham girl myself.

Follow cricut.com/setup and it is the online portal that allows you to set up your Cricut machine. A most advanced Cricut machine is best in cutting shapes, text, and photos. It doesn’t only make cuts on card stock or vinyl but adhesive foil, faux leather, balsa wood, and more. So how do you start your circuit machine? You have to download Cricut setup from cricut.come/setup then connect your machine and software to get started.
