Farmer's Wife Table Runner (#2910H) Duration: 27:46 STEREO TVG

The Farmer's Wife quilts by Laurie Aaron Hird have become instant classics.

Host Sara Gallegos and Fons & Porter Sewing Specialist Colleen Tauke showcase how small quilt blocks can be mixed-and-matched. This table runner will let you take a small taste of the rich tradition of sampler quilts.
