Patchwork: The Little House Life of Laura Ingalls Wilder

. March 5, 2013.

Born in 1867, Laura traveled across America’s rolling plains in the back of a covered
wagon. The Wilders created patchwork quilts that would later help inspire her timehonored
books. Laura’s quilts still exist today, and their patterns recall her beloved
family, her strong and caring Pa, her heroic sister Mary, her warm-hearted Ma and
their adventures as they crossed the wild and often perilous frontier. Join the Ingalls in
this adventure as they face the hardships and the triumphs of the wondrous new land,
with sometimes only their faith and the love of family to sustain them. Grades K – 5.
