The Fat Quarter Shop is excited to welcome Betsy Chutchian to the Jolly Jabber. The name of the line is a take-off on my book Gone to Texas, Quilts from a Pioneer Woman’s Journal in which the antique quilt and its reproduction are featured. Betsy’s latest fabric collection is Crossroads to Texas from Blue Hill. As the population increased in Texas, before and after the Civil War, so did the goods for making garments and quilts. Goods and people crosssed many a road to a new home, thus the name Crossroads to Texas.

Great book! The stories in it are so interesting to read. My family are fairly recent immigrants so we don't have any stories like these in our family lore. It was awesome to read someone else's though! The quilts are fun to piece and really allow for a lot of scrappiness. Excellent book for your quilt library!

Author's tie with ancester that inspired the quilts in the book enhance the interest. Also, the diary entries help make life "real" for the pioneer woman, not only depicted in this book, but also elsewhere.

Quilts are typical of the time and pattern directions straightforward. It's easy to imagine a pioneer woman making any of them for her family...who have relocated from places in the east...to Texas.

This book has both and is a great addition to my quilt book library. A beautiful book. Was shipped quickly and in great shape!

The quilt projects are a great size enabling you to try out several of the projects, plus using up alot of scraps already in your stash. I loved reading Lizzie's diaries about her life in Texas how much we have in common, plus I was amazed at what she could accomplish during her lifetime as a pioneer woman.
