The Farmer's Wife Homestead Medallion Quilt
Life on the prairie
Travel back to 1910s Montana where a homesteading pioneer woman inspired a breathatking quilt. A few years before Ada Melville Shaw’s death in 1937, she wrote a series of articles about her homesteading adventures for The Farmer’s Wife magazine. Inspired by these writings, master of traditional quilting Laurie Aaron Hird designed this queen-sized sampler quilt, featuring 64 six-inch and 56 eight-inch blocks as well as a medallion block. For each of these 121 blocks with names like Chores Are Waiting and Water Don’t Cost Nothin’ you get a little vignette from Ada’s life, making this third book in the Farmer’s Wife series a joy to read. Templates for paper-piecing and rotary cutting are provided in an easy to download and print PDF.
