Secrets of the Farmers Wife: Fearlessly Figuring out Tricks and Tips
June 3, 2017 at 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
This workshop is based on what Johanna learned and used while constructing her own Farmer’s Wife sampler quilt. It is based on a book by the same name by Laurie Aaron Hird. Instead of using the templates provided (the least efficient way to construct the blocks), Johanna uses every math formula and streamlining construction technique to make the quilt. Students can apply all her great tips and techniques toward any grid based block in any size. The goal is not to make all the blocks during the class, but to learn how to work smarter and more efficiently when making the blocks on your own.
Students need a few contrasting FQs to play with, plus mats, cutters and grid rulers. The book is used as a reference point, so if people want to share or get their own, either is fine.
There is no prep aside from bringing supply list items to come. Johanna will bring her finished quilt to class for show and tell.
