- One thing I wish this book had Review by Mrs. Candace
While I like the book and the blocks I have been able to figure out, it would be very useful if each colored part in the blocks stood for a measurement. For instance, each block has a color for each "part" of the block and many of the blocks have similar sizes for each part, so why not have a page of colors=cutting sizes?

- Great sampler Review by Anne
Love the sampler and the setup. Also very much like that it gives instructions for different sizes. CD is not very helpful as each of the parts are printed on separate pages. Marti Michell has made great conversion charts for the blocks, however, which makes it really fun to work with. Loved the first book; and love this one as well, but find it not-so-handy that the publisher failed to listen to the criticism of the users of the first book about its accompanying CD. It think this will be a recurring issue. The letters are very fun, though and I therefore thoroughly recommend this and the other book!

- The Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt Book Review by Deb E.
Loved the stories behind the blocks - brought a whole new dimension to each. While it truly is a book for a more experienced quilter who can look at a picture & figure out the math behind the pieces, I still think this is a great book for every quilter. Our art form evolved, and knowing the history behind it really makes our quilting that much more meaningful. I highly recommend this book!

- More than a quilt book Review by Sheila
I love the letters that bring each block to life. The instructions could be better and you'll have to look for third-party help (which is available online) if you aren't familiar with traditional block proportions. The focus is more on "what" than it is on "how." Not for an inexperienced quilter.

- well researched Review by Betty
The letters are a nostalgic reminder of what farm life was like in the 30's. My only disappointment was in the CD. There were no measurements on the templates and you had to click on each design to see it. There was no "select all" to view button. I became tired of having to look at each design individually. The sample blocks contained colors that blended in with each other and at times the different parts of the pattern were hard to see.
