Beneath a patch of blue
Sits a family homestead
One farmhouse, proud and true.
Come inside and join the quilting fun! Count from 1 to 10 as a child helps her mother and her grandmother gather materials for a special creative project-including 4 scissors, 6 tape measures, and 8 baskets of cloth. Then it's time to begin counting down: starting with 10 stitches, they sew pictures of 9 fields, 7 butterflies, 4 sunflowers, 2 dogs, and much more until they have completed 1 brilliant quilt capturing the color of life on the farm. Lesa Cline-Ransome's gently rhythmic text and James Ransome's cozy, homespun illustrations are sewn together to create the perfect companion to their acclaimed Quilt Alphabet.
