Quilt Block History of Pioneer Days


Product Description
Product Details


Gr 2-6‘A really-truly-kids-can-do-it history/art project book. Cobb's well-written text will hold youngsters' interest, and the information about pioneer life is neatly tied to particular quilts, illustrated with simple, colorful watercolor sketches. Best of all, the projects use a pattern, cut paper, and paste, and range from a bookmark to a greeting card to a recipe folder. All can be easily completed in one session. With no sewing, the crafts are accessible to readers of virtually any age. Each of the 10 chapters shows labeled quilt blocks hanging on a clothesline; in all, there are over 50 different patterns represented. An excellent, short bibliography and complete index make this a great addition to early American history studies. A double-page map of the United States features the major wagon trails and their names as well as the cities each trail connected. Seldom does one see a history-oriented craft book so simply, cleanly, and accurately executed. The format is attractive, with large type surrounded by lots of white space. Ellis's illustrations add style and suggest ways to continue the quilt pattern with complementary border treatments.‘Carole B. Kirkpatrick, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA
