I found this 12" Rocky Road block in a book from 1970, Modern Patchwork by Rachel Martens - Farm Journal quilt blocks from the Twenties. It was a 14" block I reduced down to 12" finished.In Sunday's diary entry, Frank and Hattie are going on a date to the Chautauqua in Burlington, Kansas to see the Ojibway Indians. Fannie, Frank's sister, and Miss Bertha Hempstead, a week-end guest of the Woodbury family, act as chaperones. (Miss Hempstead is a newspaper woman from Topeka.) Hattie drives a car for the first time!
The Chautauqua Movement flourished in the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It included various traveling shows and local assemblies that provided popular education combined with entertainment in the form of lectures, concerts, and plays. The Movement was modeled after activities at the Chautauqua Institution of western New York (Merriam-Webster On-Line Dictionary).
