10 Aug Introducing Prairie!
Prairie is my newest quilt. I love the abstract version of nature and the simplicity of the design! I was inspired by the many simply shaped versions of flowers and leaves I have seen in so many places over the past few years (including some of my own daisy quilts here and here). Some of you may remember seeing this as a work-in-progress using the Authentic fabric line. That quilt top is finished, but not yet quilted.
This time, I wanted to make something smaller than a bed sized quilt. Prairie would be a large table runner at about 19″ x 58″ but I love it on my dining room wall! In fact, I am painting the dining room with one pumpkiny (pumpkin pie, not pumpkin on the vine) wall and three grey walls. I don’t remember which color scheme came first dining room or quilt, but they will both look great when I am finished painting.
The fabrics in this quilt are Kona cottons in coal, medium grey and snow. The pattern is for sale in my Etsy shop and I will have some kits available next week too.
Also, check back next week for my first blog giveaway!
