Thousands of quilt blocks and patterns pdf


Wrap yourself up in the history of America as it is seen through the eyes of a quilter. Throughout the years quilts have become unique accounts of history. Take a walk through the past at Homestead National Monument of America and discover how quilt making reflects who we are as a country. This year our Nation will observe the 150th Anniversary of the Homestead Act of 1862. In commemoration of this significant occasion, the Monument introduces the “Quilt Discovery Experience,” a unique way for visitors to learn how American Women used quilts, and quilt block designs to convey their family history. Thousands of quilt blocks and patterns have been created and sewn throughout the years. The patterns on display in the “Quilt Discovery Experience” were used in the quilts made by homesteading women. Over a hundred and twenty years worth of popular patterns which were used between 1862, when the Homestead Act was signed by President Abraham Lincoln and when the Act was repealed in 1986, are displayed for all to see! Follow the trail to learn more about quilt making, and see how a quilt, represents so much more.
