a project for the year

I have fallen in love…with a book. Have you ever done that? The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt is the read in which I speak.

Their letters recorded in this book, are responses to a magazine inquiry in the 1920s.  The magazine asked it’s readers if they would wish their own daughters to marry into the life they are currently living.

The warm letters are written in such a way that I fall more in love with this life just by reading them.  An added bonus, is that on each page is a quilt block inspired by the detailed descriptions of the letters.  It also came with a CD for 106 paper piece templates, and instructions for assembly for lap-size to King-size blankets.

This is my project for the year (or perhaps years) to come.

Do you have any grande plans for crafting in 2013?  What are they, do share.
