One of the first blogs I found was Shelly’s Prairie Moon Quilts. Charming. Funny. Great quilts. So, when she started a quilt-along, nothing to do but join in.
Hazel’s Diary is a transcription of Shelly’s mother’s teenage journal, with commentary, pictures and a quilt pattern or two.
The 1951 commerative quilt took a year to build and was worth every day. And I learned to miter corners. (The directions are still posted, if you want to give it a try. It won’t take you a year. She gave us very small daily steps and occasional days off.)
It is finally finished, part of my quilting splurge. Thank you, Shelly, I LOVE it. Yes, it is staying at my house, too. My husband’s dire prediction that the house would sometime disappear under a pile of quilts just might come true.
