I love historical books because they are so inspiring!  It is interesting to know how women lived in the past, expressed their beliefs, and managed to survive without all the luxuries of current times.  In 1922, there was a contest in a widely famous magazine called The Farmer's Wife, and they petitioned readers to submit their opinions on whether they wanted their daughters to marry a farmer.  In the end, the reader submissions surprised the editors of the magazine!

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!
