My new Prairie Dreams fabric collection is due to arrive in late March. I have several fun projects featuring precuts from this line. Watch for more information over the coming weeks.
Today, I'm extending an official invitation to you to quilt-a-long with me to make the Prairie Days Sampler and 6 mini quilts. We'll begin with Red Dawn and piece our way through a Prairie Day with Morning Dew, Day Dreamin', Afternoon Delight, Evening Shadows and Midnight Flight. At the end of 6 months, you'll have completed 6 mini quilts and a lap quilt! I pieced each mini in a weekend and quilted them myself with simple lines. Very doable. Aren't they adorable?
Beginning in mid-April, we'll send the fabrics you'll need to make one of the mini projects PLUS the coordinating blocks for the quilt. For example, Month #1 is all about the red & tan Red Dawn Stars mini quilt and the matching rows for the sampler quilt. I'll host a Facebook Live each month (TBD) to talk about techniques for piecing the different blocks with tips I learned piecing them. I'm happy to answer your questions along the way. This was one of the most fun and satisfying projects I've done in a
while. I loved having a completed mini quilt or pillow as I was making
blocks for the sampler quilt. It seemed to go together quickly and
easily using tried and true piecing methods.
The Prairie Days Quilt-a-Long Kit is $64.98/month for 6 months. You'll receive:
Month #1 - Prairie Days booklet + a large spool of tan Aurifil thread for piecing.
Each of (6) months you'll receive:
* Precut Layer Cake squares plus yardage for the mini quilt AND the matching section/row of the sampler quilt.
* Coordinating backing for the mini quilt.
* Aurifil 50wt. thread to match the mini quilt for quilting.
* Free shipping (plus a little surprise).
You'll have everything you need to complete the mini quilt each month. It's the perfect combination of instant gratification while piecing a sampler quilt. Win, win!
We've preordered Layer Cakes and fabric for the quilt-a-long, but supplies are limited. Call the KT Quilt Shop and sign up today. 785-488-2120.
