Bestselling author Laurie Aaron Hird of The Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt shares the next installment of this beloved series. A few years before Ada Melville Shaws death in 1937, she wrote – and The Farmers Wife magazine published – a seven-part series of articles about her homesteading adventures. It is this series of articles that come to life in The Farmers Wife Homestead Medallion Quilt. Master of traditional quilting, Laurie Aaron Hird has used Adas writings to inspire the 120 classic quilt blocks that surround a stunning center medallion. Full instructions for sewing this queen-sized sampler quilt, featuring 64 six-inch and 56 eight-inch blocks, are included. No CD-rom, no problem! The Farmers Wife Homestead Medallion Quilt templates for paper-piecing and rotary cutting are provided in a ready-to-print, easy-to-download PDF. Travel back with Laurie and Ada to 1910s Montana where a homesteading pioneer woman inspired a contemporary quilt for the modern age.
