The Quilt Block History of Pioneer Days Author:Mary Cobb, Jan Davey Ellis (Illustrator) Easy-to-make papercraft quilt projects show how the daily lives and experiences of the pioneers came to be reflected in the quilts they made.
The Pioneers who traveled west across the United States made beautiful quilts. They chose patterns based on their daily lives, on special events, and on the natural world around them. In this book, you can find out what dozens of quilt block designs - from a simple 9 patch block to Martha Washington's star - tell about America's early days. Easy papercraft projects will let you make your own quilt blocks without sewing a single stitch.
This book is colorfully illustration with designs that can be made into paper projects but can also be made into fabric quilt squares. A pretty and interesting book to read even if you don't make any of the projects.
