Farmer's Wife Quilt-Along

Farmer's Wife Quilt Along

Farmer's Wife Quilt Along

This Quilt-Along is based on a quilt created by Laurie Hird that was published in her book, The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt. The book is about a collection of 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.
