Maggie Bonanomi has a style all of her own. Her 6th book with Kansas City Star Quilts – A Day at Sunny Brook Farm: Primitive Projects to Recall Home Life in the 1800s – is today’s book giveaway.
This is a little tale about three sisters living in rural Lafayette County in the mid 1800s.
Inspired by the rich colors of a vintage quilt, an 1899 book of advice, and a favorite doll, this book takes you to Sunny Brook School for Girls. Explore and make the necessary items for every part of their lives: classroom study, sewing, exercise, rest, finer skills and sleep.
Maggie supplies the projects that will take the girls though their days! And what an abundance of projects: a sampler, mending baskets, a chatelaine, pincushions, a fireplace screen, pillows and more pillows, a throw, pinched purse, several hooked rugs, a bed cover, daily books, even a flower press. Here is a sampling of the projects:
