Bestselling author Laurie Aaron Hird of The Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt shares the next instalment 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 centre medallion. Full instructions for sewing this queen-sized sampler quilt, featuring 64 six-inch and 56 eight-inch blocks, are included.
