Mary and Laura stayed by the fire ...

sewing their nine-patch quilt blocks.

*****

I imagined this pattern while reading this sentence in Laura's book

Little House in the Big Woods

Like Laura and her sisters, as soon as pioneer children could handle a needle,

they were taught to make nine-patch quilt blocks from nine squares of fabric

because they were simple to sew.

A new pattern available

A log cabin in the Big Woods

Little House in the Big Woods is one of my favourite books in the whole series.

I love the fact that Laura describes the daily routine

and many things that were part

of her life as a pioneer girl.

I have learned a lot of things and

I have already read it at least four or five times.

(I have sewn a little pouch  but for those of you

who fear sewing, the size is perfect for a little pillow !)
