A Simpler Life

KCS11194A Simple Life (#KCS11194) was inspired by Hazel Ilene Hyde’s little red diary from the 1950’s.  The age of poodle skirts, sock hops and roller rinks are commemorated by Shelly Pagliai.
She has designed seven projects using blocks -many combine piecing and applique.  The block names will bring back memories of childhood spent with family and friends.  The setting is absolutely stunning and the choice of fabrics has to make you smile!  Kansas City Star included it as a possible Block of the Month program – which is perfect because each block features simple techniques but they aren’t going to be completed in an hour!

Here are a sampling of the blocks – named to evoke memories of a simpler time…

What is old is new again.  These reds, turquoises and yellows are considered modern today!
