New pattern: "By the Hours" baby quilt and coordinating pillow from Carried Away Quilting

Several years ago, I made a simple patchwork quilt of five-inch squares for the new granddaughter of a dear friend.

While sewing up clothes for their children and fulfilling the duty of “homemaker,” women started to enhance their making skills with decorative stitching and design, steering away from trends in Europe and creating the first American style.
