magine living in the mid-1800s. Now imagine leaving your home and heading west in a covered wagon to your new home on the prairie. The flora, fauna and landscape are all new to you, and like the ladies of Baltimore, you want to record this journey by creating an album quilt.

Using both traditional and 3-dimensional applique, you record the wildflowers, fruits and vegetables, and animals you see along the way and around your new home. You add the Prairie Schooner that brought you to this new land, the cherished Bible that provided guidance when the journey was rough, and the bald eagle that symbolizes the strength and freedom of this young country.

Included in this book are large photographs and full-sized patterns for the nine album blocks and four cutwork blocks, with clear, detailed instructions for embellishing your quilt with 3-dimensional applique. Additional projects include a Prairie Chain quilt, a table mat and an embroidered wall hanging.
