Farmer’s wife: Maple Leaf

Maple Leaf is one of the very few patterns I already new before starting the Farmer’s Wife quilt. So I guess it is very common, very popular, and very traditional, though many or all of the patterns of this sampler might be really “old”.

But I think some of the Farmer’s Wife patterns look more traditional than others. Maple Leaf, for example, looks much more traditional than Ozark Maple Leaf.

Sometimes, I do a little research on some of the blocks’ names, and I am often surprised that a pattern is very old, but looks so very new. I would never have thought that the Prairie Queen pattern, or the Pine Tree pattern were so very old, known in the 19th century already!
