Living the Prairie Life

I can't wait to go to International Quilt Market next week in Kansas City and see/visit my quilts from the new book, Prairie Life. This collection of quilts, inspired by my life in the country, has been at Martingale for months while being photographed and the final book is edited and printed. I'm anxious to have them back to showcase in our KT Quilt Shop and cuddle at home.

Cypress Sampler
One of my favorite projects from the book is the Cypress Sampler. The dark block on point inside the tan strips and red corners is the traditional Cypress block. I substituted a variety of pieced blocks for the usual plain center and added sashing corner posts to create a secondary churn dash design. The result is a scrappy sampler with lots of charm. The blocks measure 12" so it makes an impressive lap quilt quickly.

Cypress Runner
What happens when you add fused applique flowers and vines to the center of the Cypress block instead of a traditional pieced block? A delightful runner perfect for a spring or summer table (although I love it on the outside of my studio!)

Double the Fun mini quilt



Double the Fun Pillow Sleeve
These two projects were created to complement the lap size Double the Fun quilt, shown last week. This trio will work beautifully in my living room, draped over my favorite chair and on the table next to it. Do you coordinate your quilts for decorating?

    2. Hi everyone I'm Olivia Hannah and am here to share the wonderful work Dr Raypower did for me. After 5 years in marriage with my husband with 2 kids, my husband started acting weird and going out with other ladies and showed me cold love, on several occasions he threatens to divorce me if I dare question him about his affair with other ladies, I was totally devastated and confused until a old friend of mine told me about a spell caster on the internet called Dr. Raypower who help people with relationship and marriage problem by the powers of love spells, at first I doubted if such thing ever exists but decided to give it a try, when I contact him, he helped me cast a love spell and within 48hours my husband came back to me and started apologizing, now he has stopped going out with other ladies and his with me for good and for real.

  2. 2 more patterns to consider for 1st project. I consider the person who might get the project in picking colors but I usually let the fabric talk to me & then I find the pattern worth it’s being cut into. When I joined 1 quilting group they all did the same project & that was a change for me to find fabric/colors. It led me to go in a different path with prints & colors which made those who knew me comment. When completed I saw it picked up colors in the family room but would look best on a wooden rocker. Sometimes you should go out of your box.

  3. How do you keep getting better and better at this!! Yes I like to make quilts to coordinate with my decor, but I also like to spice it up a bit with seasonal small quilts in the colors of the season.
