OK, I know after I finished The Farmer’s Wife quilt I said never again but I just heard that Laurie Aaron Hird has a new book coming out called “The Farmer’s Wife 1930’s Sampler Quilt”.
On her blog she posts letters from her collection of Farmer’s Wife magazines and this book concentrates on the 1930’s era. In fact, the rest of the title is “Inspiring Letters from Farm Women of the Great Depression and 99 Quilt Blocks That Honor Them“.
I’m excited! I’m ready for a fun new challenge and I think it’ll be cool to use reproduction 30’s fabrics to give it an authentic feel. Plus, only 99 blocks this time!
The sad news is that the book doesn’t come out until next June. Isn’t that mean? So you can check it out over at Amazon.com and maybe pre-order it and hopefully we’ll all still be excited next June and we can do this all together!
