I've been using Marti Michell's Perfect Patchwork Templates for my Farmer's Wife blocks and can't believe how much faster and easier the blocks come together. In the past week, I've completed 8 more blocks.
Marti has generously offered her time and assistance and has put together guides to help us get our Farmer's Wife blocks finished. I joined Marti's mailing list and each month get a new set of blocks to work on. Since I joined the mailing list a month after it started, I am a little behind so I've just completed the February blocks.
If you've never tried Marti's templates, I highly recommend them. They work for either hand or machine piecing and since using them my block sizes are more accurate. I use my rotary cutter to cut several layers at a time. All of the templates inclue the 1/4" seam allowance.
