"All the quilt patterns featured in the book and on the included CD are creative and colorful. Of course my favorite part of the book are all the letters, which gives you a glimpse of what life was like during the 1930s. Overall, I think this a great book to own for quilters or historical buffs alike." --Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer
"If you love a good story, making pieced quilts or enjoy creating quilts with a variety of different designs, this is an ideal addition to your bookshelf." --Into Craft
"I liked the original Farmer's Wife book but I love this version. Each traditional block has been renamed as either a woman's name or a noun that relates to a woman- like 'Granny'. The blocks vary from relatively simple to complex with a fiendish number of pieces to sew together but they are all beautifully presented in a mix of reproduction fabrics and solids. A range of construction methods are offered. All the blocks have templates and foundation paper piecing options and there are rotary cut options for pieces that can be easily measured." --Very Kerry Berry
"In my wildest dreams I would be able to sit down and enjoyably sew this entire book (The Farmer's Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt)." --Very Shannon

Don't get me wrong I love this quilt it's absolutely adorable but it's been super annoying dealing with all the mistakes. The author and editor need to take a look at what they made and fix the mistakes.
