do you want your daughter to marry a farmer?

That was the question that a 1920's magazine asked women who were farm wives.  If they had a daughter of marriageable age would they like her to become a farmer's wife?  Mothers wrote back to the newspaper with a heartfelt yes!

This is the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt, letters from the 1920's farm wives and the 111 traditional quilt blocks that they inspired.

It is also a very special Quilt Block of the Month Club that is being started at Sew Katie Jean.  We will be using the special templates created by Marti Michel to create our blocks and the book as our guide.  It will be our goal to sew at least 5-6 blocks per month.  Meeting every first Friday of the month to sit, sew, and share while we create our own lap to king size quilt featuring the 6" blocks.
