Four Doves in a Window

"With Ma's help, Laura packed her trunk.... Laura brought her Dove-in-the-Window quilt that she had pieced as a little girl while Mary pieced a nine-patch. It had been kept carefully all the years since then. Ma laid it, folded, on the sheet, and upon it she placed two large, plump pillows." ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder, These Happy Golden Years Ch. 32 "Haste to the Wedding"     

 
Visit De Smet, South Dakota, and experience where the Ingalls finally settled, where Laura and Almanzo met and married, and where the stars shine bright on the prairie.

Versions of Laura's quilt Dove-in-the-Window have been debated: some think it is like Bear's Paw as seen on a pillow at Rocky Ridge, others think a more intricate four flying doves in a star pattern.
