Welcome to Prairie Patchwork

We at Prairie Patchwork love our place here in the Flint Hills of east central Kansas. Our hope is to share the patchwork of broad vistas, the relaxed pace, and homespun warmth of this country through words and images.

Words and Images from the Prairie

The Flint Hills of east central Kansas are one of the last stands of native tall grass on the planet. Once home to the American bison, the grasses here now fatten beef cattle for markets around the world. They also anchor our wide sky and serve as backdrop for glorious sunsets and home for an array of fascinating birds and mammals.
