This is "Across the Wide Missouri" the Kansas City Star BOM for 2010 designed by Edie McGinnis and myself. Edie and I each made the quilt out of different fabrics from the "Blessings" line Linda and I designed. This is my version of the quilt.
The patterns for one of the blocks will be in the KC Star on the 3rd Tuesday of each month as well as some information on a woman who lived during the frontier period. These histories are written by Edie and are really fascinating. So you get to make a great quilt and learn a lot about some of the women who settled this part of the country. Both quilts and some projects to go with them will be in a book that will come out this fall. Meantime you can make a block each month if you get the paper. If you're unable to get the Tuesday Star for that months block, you can go to the Pickledish website and order either the individual pattern for $7.00 or download a pdf for $3.00. Be sure to click on our "Across the Wide Missouri" and then go to the month you want.
