When Laura Ingalls Wilder published the first of her Little House on the Prairie books in 1932, a touchstone of American tradition was born. Decades later, it became a defining TV show for countless Americans.
It also inspired new generations to learn to quilt.
With Little House on the Prairie, we got back to our roots, and began to find our passion for quilting. Even today, we still quilt with fabrics and patterns inspired by the frontier lifestyle. These fabrics are a cornerstone in the world of quilting, and are uniquely American in their style.
Inspired by the illustrations found in the novels, this collection features the iconic imagery that resonates throughout Little House on the Prairie. The running girl, the wagon, the little house, and the majestic scenery are all here. This natural finish fabric pays homage to rustic roots of the story.
The quilts of Little House on the Prairie featured bold, bright prints that gave the show its life and color. Our Prairie Flowers collection is a rainbow wave of gorgeous calicos, inspired by the quilts that inspired us from the show.
Named for the town in Minnesota where Laura’s family settled in 1874, our Walnut Grove collection features prints from the era that their quilts would have been made from. The rich, sophisticated hues in this collection beautifully capture the fabric of the time.
We are so excited for the launch of this versatile collection. We cannot wait to see the beautiful quilts, garments, and accessories you all create. As always, be sure to let us see your projects through social media by tagging Andover Fabrics in your posts and hastagging your photos with #lhotpfabric.
