|Farmer's Wife 1930s Block no. 40 - Grandmother (without inset seam)|
If you are attempting to paper-piece the Grandmother block from the Farmer’s Wife 1930s sampler quilt book then I would recommend you make a slight adjustment to the templates before you begin. This will avoid an unnecessary inset seam.

All you need to do is square off section D to incorporate the A1 triangle into the D section. Don't forget to shorten the A section too as you will no longer need to piece A1 in the A section. These two simple changes make this block so much easier to construct.
|Do not use these templates - they are not to size.|
You need to use the templates that come with the book.
And if you want to add a quick-fuse handle to this basket block here is a template for you to use: Farmer’s Wife 1930s Grandmother Block Handle.
Be sure to come back on Sunday to see the Farmer’s Wife blocks I have created this week. Until then ........
