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.
