The Farmer\'s Wife Sampler Quilt : Letters from 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 excerpt 55 of the top letters submitted to the magazine editors for the contest and has selected 111 traditional 6\" quilt blocks and created a tribute quilt to the contest. Each block is fully illustrated as to construction and comes with complete cutting templates (found on the CD). In addition, the reader is provided with complete quiltmaking instructions for the queen-sized sampler quilt (constructed \'on point\') with all 111 blocks, and additional instruction on converting the quilt to lap size, twin size, double, and king size.
