A Prairie JourneyA Prairie Journey
Small Quilts That Celebrate the Pioneer Spirit
Kathleen Tracy

Kathleen Tracy is back with 13 petite quilts that explore ties to the past, each inspired by yesterday’s traditional blocks and today’s reproduction fabrics. You’ll be whisked back to an era when the classic quilt blocks of today were just making their debut.

Stitch projects such as Wagon Wheels, Crossing the Prairie, and Aunt Sarah’s Scrap Baskets, or make a friendship quilt featuring autographed blocks. Vintage photos and the words of pioneer women from the mid-nineteenth century sprinkled throughout make this beautiful book extra special.
