Annotation Eclectic patterns, 1930s reproduction fabric, and comforting combinations fill this intriguing book based on quilts made from fabric bought with money from farm wives' egg sales. Harking back to days when quilt patterns were printed in the local paper, designs such as "Rocky Road to Kansas," "Dresden Plate," and that eternal classic "Double Wedding Ring" are shared here with detailed directions. Samplers of all kinds are shown, along with a variety of other projects, including wall hanging and aprons. Accompanied by full-color photographs, how-to illustrations, quilt yardage charts, and patterns.
First Line During the 1930's, most eggs were produced on rural farms with small flocks that scratched their way around the barnyard. The farmer's wife was usually responsible for caring for her chickens, and the money received from the sale of the eggs was hers. Surely, some fabric was purchased with this precious fund, and along with chicken feed sacks, came the quilts uniquely associated with the Depression years.
