Hi! Welcome to the Farmer's Wife Quilt-a-long! Our goal is to complete two blocks a week, a total of 111 blocks! Let's have fun & be nice to each other!

ETA - A few people found and purchased their books at JoAnn's with coupons!

Group Description

This group is dedicated to sewing The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt!

The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt is a book by Laurie Aaron Hird, it shares letters from 1920's farmer's wives and the 111 quilt blocks they inspired.

This is a go at your own pace quilt-a-long, and we are trying for two blocks a week. Please feel free to join in at any time! We will be posting our new blocks every Wednesday.

We won't be sharing the measurements or how to create the blocks, so you need to have a copy of the book!

Visit the author's website for more information:
You can either buy it at your local quilt shop or on Amazon:

Thanks for joining us! Please feel free to post photos of your blocks & your fabric choices!

Be nice to each other.
Think before you type. If you wouldn't want someone to say it to you, don't say it to them.
Be sure to search the group before you ask a question. We have a LOT of answers!
