In the 1930s, The Farmer's Wife offered inspiration and positivity in the "Letters From Our Farm Women" column. Each month, the magazine published letters from readers that offered support and encouragement to each other in an economically challenging time for our country. The Farmer's Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt shares ninety-nine of these letters from The Farmer's Wife magazine published during the 1930s, and a traditional quilt block inspired by each one.

In this book and on the accompanying CD, you'll find everything you need to create your own 1930s sampler quilt including:

    • 99 six-inch quilt blocks, with assembly diagrams for piecing the blocks and template cutting instructions
    • Complete instructions for making a sampler quilt in any traditional size: lap, twin, queen, and king
    • Easy-to-print, full-sized templates for all 99 blocks and printable quilt construction diagrams
    • Rotary cutting measurements for those templates that can be easily measured

Paper-piecing instructions and patterns for each of the 99 blocks Nostalgic and beautiful, these quilt patterns give you a unique glimpse into our country's history--and, in the quilts themselves, a tangible way to bring that sisterhood into your home.

Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt
I love this book! I have been reading it everyday and enjoying the stories of the quilt makers and then enjoying their quilt block. Through this, I am making a plan to make a sampler quilt from this book. Choosing fabrics, quilt blocks to use (the most difficult) and deciding to start! I am impatient but I have 2 to finish before I can start! Great book! Everyone should read and enjoy! Review by Liz (Posted on 8/25/2015)
