Today's Quilter Country Quilting supplementWe know how much you love our free supplements, and we’re really excited to reveal this month’s free gift. Prepare to be whisked away to the world of pioneers, patchwork and some of our favourite childhood characters, with our 42 page guide to Country Quilting. We’ve packed this mini magazine with Prairie-style projects mixed with a healthy dash of quilting heritage. Inside you’ll find four quilts inspired by Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie books.

We love these rustic designs and the stories behind the quilts that inspired them. As our Features Editor Jane Rae writes in her introduction, to the women of pioneers families, “quilts reinforced identity and place in a landscape that was new and unpredictable, and they brought women together… to provide practical and emotional support.”
