"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 inspiration, she created 111 traditional 6" quilt blocks and with them created a tribute quilt. Each block is fully illustrated and comes with complete cutting templates on the bonus CD. In addition, she provides complete quiltmaking instructions for the queen-sized sampler quilt with all 111 blocks, as well as instruction on converting the quilt to lap, twin, double and king sizes"--The publisher.
