Prairie Bouquets

"Love, consolation and peace bloom only in the garden of sweet contentment." 

My childhood was influenced by the series of books written by Laura Ingalls Wilder.  I grew up on a farm in Minnesota that was situated approximately half way between the location of Little House on the Prairie and By the Banks of Plum Creek.  There are still some small plots of virgin prairie set aside nearby. It is here that one might gather Prairie Bouquets.  This quilt motif is designed to look like a bunch of wildflowers a child might gather for her mother. I can envision this on a dining room table.
