Letters from 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 these letters as an inspiration, she selected 111 traditional 6inch quilt blocks and created a tribute quilt to the contest. Each block is fully illustrated and comes with 106 complete cutting templates on the bonus CD. In addition she provides complete quiltmaking instructions for the queensized sampler quilt with all 111 blocks, as well as additional instruction on converting the quilt to lap, twin, double, and king sizes.
