HST Sampler Quilt | Block #3: Contrary Wife


Happy Wednesday, Friends!!

Continuing on with my HST Sampler Quilt Along, here is the third block in the series for you to make! This one is called the Contrary Wife Block!

To be honest with you, I struggled to find some decent historical information on this one to include in the pattern sheet. Bummer! I’m sure there is a fascinating story behind it! If you know any fun little facts about this block, please comment below – I would love to know more!!

All of the measurements and cutting info, along with the fabrics* I’ve used to piece this block together are in the pattern sheet linked at the top of this post! If you would like to use the same 12.5″ set square as me, you can find it here: June Tailor Get-Squared 12.5″ Ruler.


Block four in the series will be ready for you on Friday (hopefully on time – I have a long awaited appointment to see the Dentist on Friday afternoon! Wisdom teeth suck!) The block that we will be making is a fun little favourite and is very appropriate for our little community that we have going on here! And that block is the Friendship Star!

Don’t forget to share all of your blocks with me and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask at any time! 🙂

See ya on Friday, Friends!


*A big thanks to Australian wholesale supplier and fabric distributer Dayview Textiles for supplying me with such beautiful fabrics! If you want to see all of the fabrics I’ll be using in this Quilt Along, check out this post where I share them all with you!
