Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Kathleen Tracy designs patterns inspired by antique doll quilts for her quilt-kit company, Country Lane Quilts. This is her second book.

More About the Author

Kathleen Tracy made her first small quilt from a Martingale pattern book she picked up in 2000. Making quilts for her daughter's American Girl dolls sparked an interest in history and led to the publication of American Doll Quilts in 2004. Kathleen looks to antique quilts for inspiration in making her scrappy quilts from simple blocks and hopes that her books make the past come alive and give quilters a connection with quilters from long ago. She is also the author of Prairie Children & Their Quilts, Remembering Adelia and The Civil War Sewing Circle.

Kathleen is a frequent lecturer to quilt guilds across the country and conducts workshops on making small quilts with an antique look. In addition to quilting, Kathleen is an avid reader and loves gardening, cooking and making simple beaded jewelry for family and friends. She lives in Illinois, with her husband, college-aged son, teenage daughter and their 2 dogs. Kathleen loves to hear from other quilters and welcomes comments.

Format: Paperback
Just opening this book draws you into our pioneering past. You will find a mixture of photos of pioneer children and families along with delightful quilts in the fabrics and styles of nineteenth century America on the move.

The excerpt for the diaries by pioneer children will both charm you and help you realize the hardships these children went through. The information in each chapter will get you in touch with what life was like for these children.

But this isn't just a history book. There are patterns for the quilts and other projects that are related to the aspects of pioneer life described. All of Kathleen Tracy's patterns include clear and complete instructions so that even a beginner can make these lovely little quilts.

Some of the patterns would be perfect for a child making his or her first quilt. Others could be a joint mother and child project. But of course grown ups will have a wonderful time making this quilts either for the children in their life, for their doll collection or just for fun.

This is a great book for the beginner and seasoned quilter alike. The quilts are made with blocks not too small to manage and anyone who likes traditional quilt patterns will find them here!Instructions use modern fast methods for cutting and sewing. The only dissapointment I found was the accounts from the children of the prairie was nothing I had not already read in any other book. But the quilts are wonderful to make as doll quilts or wall hangings.

What a lovely way to learn about the early American pioneers and also learn how to make some small quilts. Our local quilt group is using this book to produce some miniature vintage quilts, with beautiful results. We are also gaining more understanding of the trials and accomplishments of our ancestors.

The book contains professional photographs and easy-to-follow instructions for 14 quilts.

Kathleen Tracy's PRAIRIE CHILDREN AND THEIR QUILTS offers some fourteen small 'prairie quilt' projects which feature antique styles and designs of the 19th century. Vintage photos and diary entries from pioneer children accompany this unusual crafts guide to producing vintage-looking items from modern resources.

Format: Paperback
I will not restate all the wonderful things other reviewers have said about this book. Indeed, it is fabulous. My daughter and I will be making several of these quilts for her dolls as we read through the Little House on the Prairie series. I simply wanted to mention that it is available for a reasonable price from the publisher. It makes me fussy to see books (some still in print!) marked up to six times their regular price.

Since I periodically sew doll clothes for my granddaughter, I wanted something different this Christmas to add to her collection, Prairie Children and their Quilts was a great find...I have completed the Friendship quilt adding my own sentiments and used scraps of material from quilts I have made for her mom and aunt...by adding a triangle of Tinker Bell, her favorite character, I'm hoping all the "hidden " memories will last forever..I plan to make another doll quilt from this book, great reading as well!

This is a great book if you like quilting and/or history. Kathy Tracy makes history come alive. Her small quilts are based on Civil War patterns and are quick to make for the parttime quilter. I now have all of her books.
