Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you're having a great time visiting each of the designers, to enjoy their work, and learn a bit about each of them.
I've been full of anticipation waiting for the big reveal of my block,
hoping you'll like it! So without further ado, here's.........
Fabric by Lynne Hagmeier/Kansas Troubles Quilters for Moda
Heartwarming (block # 450 on page 48) is constructed with easy piecing units!
The four corner units, called Corner Square Triangles, are a favorite of mine, and they do
wonderful things to a block and your quilt, with all those showy angles. The center of the block is made from Half-Square triangles, and Flying Geese. Add in Half-Quarter Square triangles and a few Connector Corners and you've made Heartwarming!
I thought perhaps you'd like to see what Heartwarming looks like in other fabrics.
Here are a few ideas.

|Heart of the Prairie by|
Pam Buda/Heartspun Quilts for Marcus Brothers
The sample above features several prints from my brand new fabric line, Heart of the Prairie!
It's my very first fabric collection with Marcus Brothers fabrics!!
Heart of the Prairie features Indigo blues, soft pinks, and a splash of greens.
The prints I chose for the collection were just like what the Prairie Women in the 1800's would have chosen, to make their simple dresses, a shirt for their husband,
a daughter's dress, or window curtain.
Most of the light print backgrounds feature a new finish I call "Prairie Dirty", giving the feel of
comfort that comes with use, and the gentle aged patina of soft wear,
as nothing stayed white and clean on the Prairie!

I thought you may also enjoy seeing what the Heartwarming blocks look like in a quilt made with some of the Heart of the Prairie fabrics.
