The Farmer's Wife
I took my Farmer's Wife quilt book to work earlier this week so I could read it during my lunch break. I noticed that the author, Laurie Aaron Hird, included a yahoo email address; so I took the time to write her to ask where she found these letters because I wanted to read everything about the contest the letters came from as well as the complete letters. Before the day was over, I received a sweet email back from Laurie; and it made my day.
In her email she mentioned she has reprinted a booklet that contains the complete letters. I told her that I broke my CD with the templates for the quilt blocks, and she gave me a phone number where I could call for a free replacement. But the best part is that she told me she has a blog. After checking it out, I find it's every bit as nice as her book.
My hope is that The Farmer's Wife quilt will become as popular as the Janiacs have made the Dear Jane quilt.
