Group Description

Join us if you'd like support and encouragement making your own Farmer's Wife Sampler quilt. You'll need your own book to quilt along with us, we don't share the measurements for the blocks. The group is run by Karen Bennet from The Sewing Sanctuary, SA Australia. Laurie drops by from time to time to chat and answer questions. Join our group if you'd like friendship and support along the journey of making your quilt.

In 1922, the very popular "The Farmer's Wife" magazine held a contest asking a simple question: 'Do you want your daughter to marry a farmer?'

Author Laurie Hird has excerpt 42 of the top letters submitted to the magazine editors for the contest and has selected 111 traditional 6" quilt blocks and created a tribute quilt to the contest.

If you'd like help to make the quilt your own, or you like to help others with tips you've picked up to make their quilts, and you want to share your quilt photos etc then join in now!

If you have a problem with the CD which is included with your book please email sharon.rustad@fwmedia.com or phone (800) 289-0963 for a replacement.
