Quilting with Laura



Patterns inspired by the “Little House on the Prairie” series by Linda Halpin – paperback book

The Little House books tell of the life of Laura Ingalls Wilder as she grew up in the Midwest during a time of pioneering expansion and exploration. These well-loved children’s books were made even more popular by the Little House on the Prairie television series.

Children and adults alike continue to be fascinated by the engaging tale of what life was like during this era. In an age when people had to make do to survive, quilting plays a natural and vital role.

This book is a collection of blocks, which the author has joined into a sampler quilt, that were inspired by the Little House books. It includes blocks that are actually mentioned in the series as well as traditional blocks whose names reflect events of this pioneering time.

The informative sections on ‘Basic Tools’ and ‘General Directions’ will lead stitchers of all ages into quilting as they explore Laura’s life and times through the stories the patterns tell.
