Be Inspired by the Stories

The 1922, The Farmer's Wife magazine posed this question to their readers: "If you had a daughter of marriageable age, would you, in light of your own experience, have her marry a farmer?" The magazine at the time had 750,000 subscribers, and received over 7,000 letters. The best answers to this question are included in this book, along with the traditional quilt blocks they inspired.

Laurie Aaron Hird provides everything you need to be inspired and create your own sampler quilt:

  • 111 six-inch quilt blocks, with assembly diagrams for piecing the blocks and template cutting directions
  • Complete instruction for making a sampler quilt in any traditional size: lap, twin, queen or king
  • CD with easy-to-print, full-sized templates for all 111 blocks, and printable quilt construction diagrams
  • 42 letters from the 1922 Farmer's Wife contest to give you a priceless glimpse into our country's past
Laurie Aaron Hird has been quilting for over ten years and enjoys working with reproduction and 1930's fabrics. She and her family live on six acres in the country of southwestern Wisconsin, complete with animals, gardens, woods and an orchard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An inspirational country book I'm a farmer's wife so I absolutely loved reading the stories that 1920's farm wives wrote responding to the question, "Would you want your daughter to marry a farmer?" The book contains a CD with patterns for quilt blocks too, which I haven't used yet.
