    This book gives us a glimpse of days long gone.  Thank you for preserving this part of history. I'm loving the stories so much that I think that I will make a quilt in  honour of the Pony Club

    You will LOVE this book!

    I have just seen an advance copy of Laurie Aaron Hird's new book. It is STUNNING and outshines her wildly popular first book by a mile. I wouldn't have thought that possible, until I saw this pony Club Quilt book. Like her first book, this one is a collection of letters written to the Farmer's Wife magazine, and each letter has a quilt block to go with it. The letters were written around 1915 by children who had entered a magazine subscription contest and won a PONY. The children's letters about their ponies are so charming! The quilt is beautiful. The 8" blocks are varied and interesting. I think the blocks had to be 8" because some of the pieces would have been too small to sew in a 6" block. If you have Laurie's first book, you are well aware of some of the drawbacks of the CD that comes with it. Laurie has more than made up for it in the new Pony Club Quilt CD. First, all of the templates for each individual block are grouped together, along with a full-size line drawing and a foundation pattern for the block. At the beginning of the CD, there are rotary cutting measurements for any block pieces that can be measured to 1/8". Laurie explains the reason why she didn't try to squeak out approximate measurements for all the pieces. She has me convinced. Here's my favorite part about the CD, as if all of the above weren't enough. The patterns are grouped in folders, 10 blocks per folder. Then each folder has interactive bookmarks as well as an interactive table of contents. So NO SCROLLING! I just have to click a bookmark and it takes me to the exact pattern I want. Even if you have never made a quilt and never plan to, this would make a beautiful coffee table book, and would be a great gift for anyone interested in early 20th century America. This book is a keeper!
