The Farmer's Wife 1930 Sampler Quilt
Featuring real-life letters from The Farmer's Wife magazine, Laurie Aaron Hird's new book commemorates the strength and hope of the farm women of the Great Depression. The 99-block queen-size sampler quilt inspired by these letters uses reproduction 1930s fabrics. For each block, instructions are provided for template piecing, and where applicable, rotary cutting, so readers can piece the blocks based on their preferred technique.
What Fons & Porter's Vanessa Lyman, has to say:
"This past summer, I completed the quilt top for a lap-sized version of The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt. It's not quilted yet, but I'm already planning another version, maybe with blocks from Farmer's Wife 1930s Sampler Quilts, too!"
