.: Farmer's Wife Friday - week 4 :.

Week 4 of the Farmer's Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt Sew-Along has come to an end, with not two but three blocks - bringing our total of completed blocks to ten! This week saw us making Old Maid, Katherine and Susannah.

All three of my blocks were sewn using set A of Marti Michell's templates and conversion charts - and I'm happy to say they all work equally well on point or squared, which will be pretty helpful when it finally comes time to decide on their placement for my quilt layout. 

First up this week was block number 78, Old Maid, which combines Lizzy House's Meadow Flowers and Alexia Abegg's American towns + states from her Hatbox line for Cotton + Steel.

Katherine and Susannah were released together, as both use the same template technique, reversed.  Katherine incorporates Ella Blue Basics (the blue) and Terra Australis (orange), with a cute cats-in-boots print I picked up from Studio Mio at the recent Craft + Quilt Fair in Brisbane. 

Susannah is all Cotton + Steel, because why not, it's all awesome.
