“A really-truly-kids-can-do-it history/art project book. Cobb’s well-written text will hold youngsters’ interest, and the information about pioneer life is neatly tied to particular quilts, illustrated with simple, colorful watercolor sketches. Best of all, the projects use a pattern, cut paper, and paste, and range from a bookmark to a greeting card to a recipe folder. . . Seldom does one see a history-oriented craft book so simply, cleanly, and accurately executed. . . Ellis’s illustrations add style and suggest ways to continue the quilt pattern with complementary border treatments.”
