Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt

Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt Requirements:

  • 4 – 5 (minimum) fat quarters or fat eighths in a selection of colours and values (light to dark). We will add to these over the next few months, but this will get you started.
  • Sewing thread – ideally 60wt, such as YLI Soft Touch or Mettler Fine Embroidery Cotton in a neutral colour to suit your chosen fabrics.
  • 6 metres of sashing and setting triangles (in my sample these are white)
  • 70cm of border fabric (in my sample, the pink floral)
  • 25cm (skinny quarter) of cornerstones (little squares between the sashing – in my sample these are green)
  • 50cm of fabric for binding the edges (in my sample, the turquoise spots)
  • Backing fabric – ideally get extra wide fabric, 1.6 metres.

And don't forget your basic sewing equipment, to include:

  • Rotary cutter
  • Quilting ruler
  • Cutting mat (we do have a small amount number of mats to for you to use but bringing your own may save you waiting)
  • Scissors
  • Pins
  • Fabric marker
  • Bobbin

Husqvarna owners may also wish to bring the following:

  • Green bobbin (these can be purchased individually in the shop)
  • 1/4” piecing foot
  • Open toe appliqué foot
  • Walking foot
  • Free motion spring foot

All of the above items can be purchased from Coles Sewing Centre with a 10% discount in the shop for class attendees!
