Inspired by actual children's diaries from the American frontier, this follow-up to the bestseller American Doll Quilts explores the origins of doll quilts made during the era. Quilters can stitch small, antique-style projects as they read about the lives of pioneer children and their families.
- Fourteen patterns spotlight popular quilt designs from the nineteenth century
- Projects include a game-board quilt, a schoolhouse quilt, a prairie-doll apron, and a schoolgirl sampler
- See vintage photos of prairie children, and read actual diary entries from children who traveled with their parents to settle in the West
Kathleen Tracy's love of quilting began in 2000, when she picked up a book on small quilts and made one for her daughter's dolls. Using traditional blocks and reproduction fabrics, she designs quilts that are inspired by quilts from the past. Kathleen enjoys hand quilting and using scraps to make her quilts look like they came from another time. She is the author of several popular quilting books published by Martingale.Visit Kathleen's website
