This item is a digital download and incurs no shipping or handling charges.
The timeless charm of Little House books is reflected in 20 homespun quilts and projects. They are inspired by the rural lifestyle and rustic color reflected in the stories that are beloved the world over. Making quilts was not only what kept Laura and Mary Ingalls occupied when they were stuck in the house during Midwestern blizzards and needed something to keep them busy, but it was also a passion they enjoyed. A lover of fashion, Caroline Ingalls made all her families' clothing and recycled the scraps for patchwork quilts. Because their quilts were made using clothing scraps, the aesthetic – primarily richly colored calico – is what fans associate with Little House books. Similar fabrications, patchwork techniques, and color schemes inspired this quilting book. It includes 12 beautiful bed-sized quilts any prairie family would have cherished, while keeping a timeless approach to warm any 21st century decor. Not only machine methods, but also hand quilting techniques are clearly detailed for "bonnet heads" who pride themselves on authenticity. Included in this book are some sidebars and tips suitable to "half-pints" to make it a perfect teaching tool for clubs, like brownies, church groups and home schoolers.
