Where We are Published: Primitive Quilts and More

Have you seen the issue of Primitive Quilts and More?  Specifically the Spring 2019 edition?

You might want to check it out.  We have a quilt in that issue.  It’s called Farmstead Gathering.


The picture in the magazine is a little dark.  I think our photo is a little more like the true colors.

I designed this last year at about this time.  I had seen a fabric line that I really loved.  It’s Farmhouse Living by Jeanne Horton.  To me, it didn’t look so “fabric line like”.  The colors blend WONDERFULLY like a fabric line but the prints seemed more different than most fabric lines.

I wanted a simple design…something that had a cabin feel to me.  Something that would work well for a person who was decorating in the farmhouse style.

This is what I came up with…simple half square triangles with a fun unexpected border.  See?At the time, mine and Kelli’s schedules were both a little hectic so we called my friend Connie and asked her if she would be interested in sewing to together for us and she was!

I got it back in July and had to have it to them in August.  Here’s a view so you can see the quilting motif I used.

I’m SUPER happy with how the quilt turned out.  It is exactly what I had in mind.
Lucky for all of you…Carolyn and Diane, friends of ours, who operate Forest Mills Quilt Shop in Postville, are offering a kit for the quilt.  Here is the ordering information:

To order a kit for quilt top and binding for $125 ppd (Iowa residents $133.75 ppd.), contact Forest Mills Quilt Shop, 650 Forest Mills Road, Postville, IA 52163; (563)568-3807, forestmillsquilts.com  If you’re looking for a copy of the magazine I think the gals have them as well.  I think that’s a great price for the quilt kit.

Thanks to Connie and Kelli for helping bring this quilt to life.  It’s a pretty one…  Sometimes simplicity is its’ own beauty.
