The star of A Simple Life, author Shelly Pagliai‘s first book, is the block-of-the-month quilt Hazel’s Diary. Who is Hazel? Shelly Pagliai’s mother, a farm girl growing up in Kansas in the 1950s. And why the diary? Well, Shelly was inspired to design this quilt, a gorgeous mix of piecing and appliqué, when she discovered her mother’s little red diary–a five-year, line-a-day diary given to her at Christmas when she was fourteen. For the past six years, Shelly has been transcribing the diary entries, one a day, to the Hazel’s Diary blog. She’s also been dreaming up blocks and borders that represent different pieces of her mother’s life.
