I designed this pieced and appliquéd quilt that tells Sacagawea's story. It was made from my scrap basket with all the red, white, and blue scraps of Minick and Simpson collections.
How the Kansas City Star Block Of The Month program works, is you can purchase right now - the 12 patterns for this quilt. If you live in the Kansas City area, one pattern per month will be published in the Kansas City Star newspaper starting in January of 2012. Also, right now quilt shops can sign up and do this quilt for their block of the month next year. Several shops purchased patterns at The International Quilt Market in Houston last week so they could start making their shop quilts. If you know of a quilt shop that will participate in the program, email me here and I will post a list of the participating shops.
Also, in the fall of 2012 this quilt, several rugs, and some more stitchery projects will be published as a Kansas City Star book.
