I am the daughter of a farmer’s daughter, who is also the daughter of a farmer’s daughter… I come from a line of practical women who also love beautiful things. Grandma talks about how after the Great Depression was over, the first thing she bought, as a twelve year old, was beautiful floral prints from the Montgomery Ward catalog for sixty cents a yard. Imagine that! My own farmer-daughter mama says that she loved the ‘chore’ of getting cows down from the pasture each evening, because she was able to gather wild irises and dandelions along the way. When we went to Grandma’s farm, we slept on a brass beds furnished with handmade quilts, made from carefully saved scraps. This collection is reminiscent of that sweet country life–simplicity with a few fancy flourishes.

Oh that is wonderful to hear. It’s amazing how fabric can connect us to others. God bless.

Is there anywhere we can purchase farmers daughter and sugar pie fabrics?

Hi Kathy! Unfortunately, those have been out of print for some time. You may have luck on Ebay but if you like these, you should definitely check out my upcoming collection Country Rose that will be in shops August/September 2022. Country Rose is a sister collection to Farmer’s Daughter and even has the same Farmhouse Text print. Hope that helps!

I found out about this collection too late and by the time I discovered (it was used in a pattern from one of my quilting magazines), I could not find it or on Etsy it is just outrageously priced. Wish there was a way to find it but I know that once a collection is gone, it is gone!
