In January 1922, the editors of "The Farmer's Wife" magazine asked their readers the following question: "If you had a daughter of marriageable age, would you, in the light of your own experience, want her to marry a farmer?" Some of the resulting letters have been published in "The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt" by Laurie Aaron Hird. I am really enjoying reading these letters. I must admit I was surprised at how many mentioned the importance of good books and magazines in the home. The quilt blocks are different than many I have seen and I will be hand piecing a few of them.
