What I have bought this week.!

A couple of things to show off, First a new book which may mean a new Quilt. I heard about a new book The Farmers Wife It was a Contest in the 1920's asking Farmers Wives if they would want there Daughter to Marry a Farmer. There are 111 6" blocks and pictures  to follow. The letters are great reading.

IMG_3569 It comes with a CD which has the template patterns on it.

IMG_3571 A picture of the quilt  from the book.

I'm thinking of using these fabrics for my quilt.

 

IMG_3568 They are 1930'3 Lil Darlings well thats what I will start with as there are lots of other 1930's I can add as I go.!
