Pioneer Day quilts represented everyday life events from births, weddings, migration, sickness, & even death. This simple quilt pattern was inspired from the quilt Laura Ingalls Wilder was gifted from her Mother. I have seen this exact pattern represented in scarfs, rugs, pillows, bedding, etc. It’s great to see this pattern lives on today. If you are interested in the many stories behind quilt pattern & their stories, check out the book Treasures In The Trunk – Quilts of The Oregon Trail by Mary Bywater Cross.
