Farmer’s Wife

This is Joanne’s version of the Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt. Most of you are probably familiar with the story/the book behind this quilt but for those of you who are not, here is a short recap: In 1922, “The Farmer’s Wife” magazine asked its readers if, based on their own experience, they would have their daughter marry a farmer. They received over 7,000 letters answering the question. 55 of those answers are included in the book “The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt: 55 Letters And The 111 Blocks They Inspired”. Joanne’s quilt was quilted with the design “Swirling Feathers”, we thought the traditional look required something with feathers. While writing this post I suddenly realized that the quilt is upside down in the pictures, sorry about that.

Farmer's Wife

Dies ist Joannes Version des “Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilts”. Für diejenigen, die von diesem Quilt noch nichts gehört haben, hier ist die Geschichte dazu: Im Jahre 1922 startete das “Farmer’s Wife” Magazin eine Umfrage unter den Leserinnen, ob sie, basierend auf ihren eigenen Erfahrungen, ihre Töchter ebenfalls mit einem Farmer verheiraten würden. Das Magazin erhielt über 7.000 Antworten, und 55 davon sind in dem Buch “The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt: 55 Letters And The 111 Blocks They Inspired” enthalten. Als Quiltmuster für Joannes Quilt haben wir “Swirling Feathers” verwendet, wir fanden, dass Federn gut zu diesem traditionellen Quilt passen. Und als ich diesen Post geschrieben habe, fiel mir dann auf, dass der Quilt in den Photos auf dem Kopf steht, sorry.
