Letters from 1920's Farm Wives and the 111 Blocks They Inspired.
In 1922, The Farmer's Wife magazine posed
this question to their readers: ''If you had a daughter of
marriageable age, would you, in light of your
own experience, have her marry a farmer?''

The best answers to this question are included in this book,
along with the traditional quilt blocks they inspired.
111 six-inch quilt blocks, with construction diagrams
for piecing the blocks and template cutting directions.

Shipping from United States

Our philosophy is to ship the fabric in the most cost effective way, ensuring that it arrives promptly and in good condition for your crafting use. We evaluate each order to determine the best price between 1st class or flat rate shipping. We have worked hard to make sure we are as close as possible when you place your order - knowing that we refund excess payment over $1 beyond actual cost. We do combined shipping, and will refund any amount significantly higher than the cost of shipping.


We generally ship ASAP, within 1-3 business days of your order, excluding weekends and holidays. If there is an unusual delay, we will let you know .
We do our best to get your order to you quickly as we can.

Preorder items will ship as indicated on individual listing.

You need to be aware that your own country's customs service may impose a range of import fees, taxes, tariffs, duties at the time of delivery. These are not in our control and we have no way of knowing when or if they will be imposed or how much they might be.

For more information, contact your local customs agency. You are responsible for any fees your country or brokerage imposes at the time of delivery.

*** Federal Postal Regulations will not allow us to ship items
marked "gift" or "sample". *** If you select "gift" during your purchase,
it means you are giving it to someone else as a gift - we are not
marking it as a gift to you!

Most of our fabric is priced by the 1/2 yard or panel section
and cut to order from the bolt in one continuous piece. Exceptions are noted on individual listings (some fabric will be by the yard)

Quilt kits are cut to yardage, include the instructions, and all fabric to make the quilt top and binding. It may not match the suggested cut list yardage from the manufacturer, but you will always receive enough to complete the project as shown - we keep our kits affordable. Backing for quilt kits is not included.

We're happy to consider custom orders, and if you don't see a fabric you would like, let us know! We may be able to find it for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you cut in continuous yardage?

Yes - multiple items are cut in a single continuous piece (2 = 1-yard)
Any exceptions are listed in the detail section of the listing

Do you refund excess shipping?

Yes - sometimes shipping shows up higher than it needs to be - at the time of packaging we use the most cost-effective option and refund extra.
