    Excellent Depiction of Children's Lives in Pioneer Days

    I love making small quilts and I think this book is great--full of poignant, antique photos and beautiful little quilts that are colorful and easy to make. Every quilt has a story to go along with it. The author uses her imagination well to show just what life may have been like for pioneer children and what kinds of quilts they MAY have made. We don't really know because doll quilts from so long ago did not survive as children played with them. This book would be an excellent way to teach a child to quilt with simple patterns and have her learn a little bit about history as well. I learned so much that I did not know about what it must have been like to travel west in America in the 1800s. My granddaughter is not old enough to quilt yet, so in the meantime I will make them for myself. A wonderful gift for anyone who enjoys quilting & history!

    Not what I expected

    I thought I was buying a book documenting pioneer children's quilts. These were not authentic quilts. It was the author's imagination of what a pioneer child might make.
