The Farmer's Wife

I bought this book: The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt by Laurie Aaron Hird.  It is inspired by a contest that a newspaper had in the 1920s, asking women if they would like their daughter to marry a farmer.  The letters are included in this book.  Each letter is accompanied by 2 quilt blocks.  I plan to go through the book during the course of the year and make at least 2 blocks a week.  Then next summer (2013) I should have all 111 blocks ready to put together the sampler quilt.  Each Friday I hope to post pictures of the blocks I finished that week.  I hope that this blog will keep me accountable. 

This is a very interesting book, even if you are not a quilter.  It makes me miss my life on the ranch!
