Are you a History buff? Do you love Sampler Quilts? Then you will love the new class we have planned for you! The class will be based on the book, The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt by Laurie Hird. The book features Letters from farm wives of the 1920’s and the quilt blocks (111 in all) that were inspired by these women. The class will be a “block of the month” and meet once a month. Instead of learning a single block each month you will learn four new 6” x 6” blocks. Just because these blocks were created with Reproduction fabrics, doesn’t mean you couldn’t make it your own by using brights, batiks or even modern fabrics. The first class features the four blocks shown above. Even if you are not interested in making all of the blocks, the history behind each block is fascinating!
