Children and adults alike continue to be fascinated by the engaging tales of the Little House books, made even more popular by the Little House on the Prairie television series. In an age when people had to make do to survive, quilting played a natural role. Mentioning quilting and other forms of hand sewing over 70 times in her books, quilting was definitely part of the life of Laura Ingalls Wilder.
From her first sewing lessons on Nine Patch quilts to the quilts of the 1930s-1940s when she wrote her Little House books, this presentation is a treasure trove of quilts.
Explore the changing quilt styles during Laura’s lifetime.
Format: Lecture, trunk show
This presentation has been updated for 2019 to include a new variety of quilts and information.
