Yankee Diary

It's month 3 of
and we're beginning to accumulate blocks!

This month we  learned about  the society that the young ladies of Canandaigua New York organized in the 1850s.  They kept company socially, and quilted together.  An album quilt was made by the group for each member upon the occasion of that girl's marriage.

We made 'Double Tie' blocks this month, using the same pattern as the girls in Carrie's society used for their album quilts.
