The Farmer’s Wife 1920’s Sampler Quilt Sew-along is celebrating block 26, Cut Glass Dish, today. Not gonna lie, I’m grateful that Raylee had to stitch this one together. What a way to come back from our break for Thanksgiving.
About Our Quilt
I’ve taken inspiration from one of my favourite china patterns; Spode’s Blue Italian. I treated myself when I turned 40 to some pieces from this collection with the intention that I’ll add to it over the years until I can complete the full set. I’ve never made a single colour quilt and I’m really excited to make this blue quilt. I’ve paired it with a light cream and that’s a first for me too. I normally use a bleach white with my work.
After the joy of making our Round We Go quilt, Caroline (@nightingalequilts) , Raylee (of Sunflower Stitcheries & Quilting) and I have teamed up again and we’ll be sharing the work of making this quilt. It’s a great way for the three of us to make time for each other because there’s not much you can do other than gab when you’re cutting, basting and stitching blocks. I can only begin to imagine what crazy things we’ll talk about while making this quilt.
I will post our blocks on Tuesday’s and Friday’s. The block posts will follow the same format every time: introduction (this bit), important information (all the stuff you need to know), how to assembly the block for EPP and then information about our major sponsor. Hopefully the consistency of information will help you find what you need every time.

Super simple block consisting of 2 types of squares. Join:
- A1 + A2 = A – make 24
- A + A + A + A = AA – make 4
- A + A = AB – make 4
- AA + AA = AC – make 2
- AB + AB = AD – make 2
- B + AC = top row
- AD + B + AD = middle row
- AC + B = bottom row
- Join rows to complete block
For those wanting a tip on how to baste the triangles so they nest easily the above diagram shows how we’re doing it.
For the very eagle eyed amongst us you’ll note that edge 3 is folded under edge 1 – you don’t have to do it like this, it’s just how Caroline likes it. I simply fold 3 over the top of 1.

NOVEMBER 2018: MISTER DOMESTIC
Mathew Boudreaux of Mister Domestic learned to sew as a kid, but never really got into it until he had his daughter Helena, who is now five. He thought it would be a great way to connect with her if he could make her cool clothes. With a new motivation to up his attention-to-detail, the quality and coolness far exceeded even his own expectations. Once he started posted his projects on social media, the quilting world quickly took notice of his fearless use of color and print, incomprehensibly fast output, carefree enthusiasm and humor, and ability to seek out, acquire and share new skills. Making projects from fabric weaving to English Paper Piecing to apparel to the 3-dimensional, you can find his fabric party on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube and can find his fabric with AGF and patterns at misterdomestic.net.
Prize: Mister Domestic has kindly donated a half yard bundle of his collection, Aura, and his Mister Domestic’s Tool Box of 12 large spools of Aurifil thread.
Please note: The prize is open internationally. Winner is responsible for own shipping, insurance and custom charges where applicable.
