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.
