Based on the 1930's The Farmer’s Wife Sample Quilt Blocks
The quilt and book are based on letters from farmers' wives to the "Farmer's Wife Magazine" in the 1930's. The winner of the quilt will receive an original copy of this magazine from 1936. The author of the book selected the letters and matched a block to the letter. The letters are reprinted in the book along with pictures of the block chosen for that person. They create a picture of the time and what the people were going through. Batiks were chosen to update the quilt while still giving a nod to the 1930's with the blocks. The book contains 99 blocks; 90 were used in the quilt. Members who made this lovely quilt are: Carolyn Bowden, Bonnie Chovanetz, Pam Gantz, LaNelle Herron, Sharon Gunnels, Sheilah Kosko, and Lee Pierce. Quilted by Mona Levingston.
