Farmer’s Wife 1930’s Sampler Sew Along

by Julie Hirt

I’m in!  I was trying to hold back from joining* but I caved and am super excited!

*I’m terrible at sew alongs, especially year long stints.  I’m just now finishing up my Gypsy Wife quilt after 19 months.


I already own the original Farmer’s Wife and the Farmer’s Wife Pony Club. I love those books and the stories are fantastic – but the actual making of one of these?  Kind of scary.  With so many people joining in this sew along on Instagram, I think it will push me along.  The sew along will also help by providing a variety of piecing techniques and options.

Today is Labor Day and I saw Craftsy was having a big sale. I’ve been stalking fabrics trying to decide what to use for this.  I knew I wanted to try something a little outside typical fabric choice (brighter colors, small prints) and I’ve decided to go solid. This is a first for me!



I purchased fat quarter bundles in both the Modern Movement and Modern Expressions.  These are Kona solids – the collections are exclusive to Craftsy, if you’re looking to buy.



I know I can’t go wrong with these.  I love all the color and can’t wait to play with combinations.



Thinking about joining?   Follow Angie at Gnome AngelFAQ is here.  The announcement with additional info here.

The sew along doesn’t start until September 28th so you have plenty of time to pick up the book and get your fabrics in order!
