The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quiltby Laurie Aaron Hird
In 1922, The Farmer's Wife magazine posed this question: "If you had a daughter of marriageable age, would you, in light of your own experience, have her marry a farmer"? The magazine received over 7,000 responses. The best answers to this question are included in the book, along with the traditional quilt blocks that they inspired. Each block is illustrated and comes with cutting templates on the bonus CD.

There are 111 blocks inspired by the letters these women wrote to The Farmer's Wife magazine with excerpts from the letters along with each beautiful block. The blocks wind up in a very beautiful pieced quilt that you can build too! You also get a CD with a larger version of quilt assembly diagrams. You will most certainly enjoy the story along with the delightfully honored blocks to dip your thread into. Wahoo!
