Announcing our 2012 Block of the Month project!

We are so excited about our Block of the Month project for 2012 – The Spirit of Sacagawea: A Textile Tribute to an American Heroine by Laurie Simpson of Minick & Simpson.  This quilt is a mixture of piecing and applique and is AWESOME!  Check it out:

About the quilt:

The Kansas City Star’s Block of the Month quilt for 2012 honors the American Heroine, Sacagawea, the only woman to travel with Lewis and Clark’s expedition. Her contributions were many, her bravery and fearless heart outstanding. The young mother, who carried her infant son on her back throughout the arduous journey, was a symbol of peace to other Native Americans. To Lewis and Clark, she was translator, teacher, guide, and rescuer.

Laurie Simpson, of Simpson and Minick, designed, stitched and quilted the quilt that commemorates Sacagawea’s spirit and courage. Each block marks a step on the trail to the Pacific Ocean. Stitch along with Laurie as she tells of Sacagawea’s valor and fortitude.

Order all 12 patterns plus finishing instructions by clicking here.  Or, if you’re a subscriber to The Kansas City Star newspaper, look for a new block of the quilt on the third Tuesday of every month starting in January 2012.
