Welcome To Pilgrims and Pioneers!

After many years of researching my family geneaology I have been lucky enough to discover actual information about my relatives that lived in the Pilgrim Era and the Pioneer Era- while many people also have realtives from those eras- many do not know their names or where they lived- actually seeing the proof in print makes you much more aware of who they really were.
After discovering these relatives it of course made me curious to learn more about the eras that they lived in and what their lives were like as, the history I learned in grade school had long since been forgotten.
I decided to start this blog for others who are also interested in these eras.
Some of the information here will be actual facts about my realtives and some will be information about the eras in general that I have found on the web.
I hope you will enjoy traveling back in time with me!

4 Patch Quilt Block

What You Need
2 strips cut 31/2" x 7 "
Place dark strip onto light strip. Right sides together. Edges even. Stitch using a scant ¼" seam allowance.
Press seam toward dark strip.
Place sewn strips on cutting mat. Rotary cut in half.
Each unit should measure 3 ½" x 6 ½".
Arrange units so you have a dark square & a light square.
Place units on top of each other so that you have a dark square on top of a light sqaure & a light sqaure on top of a dark square.
Make sure right sides are together. Edges even. Pin the center seams so the folds meet. Stitch.
Your quilt block should resemble a checker board and should measure 61/2" x 61/2"

I really like this one, it seems pretty easy for us beginners yet it has a fancy look. And I love anything with little squares, gingham, checks etc.

Still so elated that your son will get not only the surgery, but someone will get to the bottom of why those vessels are blocked at such a young age, and that your hubby will get that danged gallbladder out!
