I thought I would share with you a quilt I started on January 7. 2011. I've been searching for a way to show you quilt blocks that I've been working on without having to post a gazillion pictures! lol Picasa seems to be working for me at the moment, I think!
It is allowing me to create a movie, which is much better than the alternative. I am looking for a way to create a slide show! I think I'm getting there!
Anyway, the blocks are from a book titled The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt by Laurie Aaron Hird. Each block, and there are 111 blocks, was inspired from letters submitted by women for a contest offered by the Farmer's Wife magazine back in 1922. The question they had to answer was "If you had a daughter of marriageable age, would you, in the light of your own experience, want her to marry a farmer?" The entries are fascinating to read.
The quilt is being offered as a block of the month at Fibre Junction.
Given that the creator of this sampler quilt chose to hand pieced this project, hence templates are offered, I have taken on the task of writing the rotary cutting instructions.
As a bonus, I get to make this quilt! ;o) Well, okay, I'm testing my written instructions! lol
Well, that took me all day to figure out! lol
Thank you for stopping by! Cheers!
