The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt Book:
Letters from the 1920s Farm Wives and the 111 Blocks they inspired. In 1922, the very popular "The Farmer's Wife" magazine held a contest asking a simple question: Would you want your daughter to marry a farmer? Author Laurie Hird has excerpted 55 of the top letters, and using the letters as inspiration, created a 111 block quilt as a tribute to the contest. Each block is fully illustrated and comes with a bonus CD. Instructions to make a queen-size sampler, as well as additional instructions to convert the quilt to a lap, twin, double, and king size quilt.
