In 1922 'The Farmer's Wife' magazine held a contest asking 'Would you want your daughter to marry a farmer?' Laurie Aaron Hird has selected 55 of the response letters & been inspired to create a 111 block quilt as a tribute to the contest. Full cutting templates for all the blocks can be found on the CD.
