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.
