Book find: The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt

The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt: 55 Letters and the 111 Blocks They Inspired I bought myself a treat!
This book is so sweet and awesome and inspiring... I just had to buy it.
There are page after page of beautiful quilt blocks along with correspondence from mothers from the 1920s telling us whether they would want their daughter to marry a farmer. How sweet!!!
Each block is broken down into the pieces it is made up of - so easy, so inspiring.
Have you seen this book?
Have you made anything from it?
Does it inspire you to make the quilt?

Want to buy the book too? I purchased mine from here....
