Tucked inside, you'll find my block, Towne Square, on page 47.
I made this block using fabrics from my very first fabric line,
Heart of the Prairie for Marcus Fabrics.


The angles within the block create an interesting secondary pattern.


Add some sashing for another look.

  2. Love your "towne square block. It's difficult to chose only one prefered pattern... maybe "summer cottage".

  4. Congratulations on having your block published in Quiltmakers 100 Blocks magazine. I like your Town Square block and am impressed by how nicely it has a secondary pattern created by the angles. I can decide if I like that one or the one with the sashing better! I also really like your Heart of the Prairie fabric line. I think I like the Heartland Heritage Sampler pattern the best but Tussy Mussy comes in a close second. Thanks for the chance to win!

  23. OH, MY GOODNESS! You are a real person! I just finished searching the Fat Quarter Shop for my favorite Coming Soon so I could register a Blog Hop Comment. I just this very minute finished typing your name for Prairies Wovens as my favorite. Then I hop HERE and it REALLY IS YOU! I guess I never thought of designers as being every folk. Kind of like seeing your teacher in the grocery store for the first time. Anyway, I like your Fab Four pattern very much although I had already admired and I think Pinterested a quilt made from the Prairie Squares pattern. Another connection I just made. You=Prairie Woven, You=cool Prairie Woven Squares pattern. I feel like the rest of the day will be filled with discovery.

    ReplyDelete
  47. love this block - always a fan of blocks that have more than one setting option. Summer Cottage and Made in America are alreay on my "to do" list. Next in line is start collecting Prairie Women Journey patterns.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I like your block and the fact that the angles within the block create an interesting secondary pattern. That just makes this block so much fun and so neat to make. Your quilt patterns for my choice would be either Fritzie's Closet or Blueberry Pie. Both of these patterns are good stashbusting projects and look easy enought for me to make. Thank you for the chance to win and being a part of the QM 100 Blocks Volume 7 tour.

  49. I like the Fab Four pattern, I always like to see how different blocks will look together and make up an entirely different looking quilt. I like your block and how it does the same thing depending on settings.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Congrats on a wonderful block being accepted for a great publication. I looked at the patterns and slected Little Red Schoolhouse. I love that there are not Y-seams. I attended a one-room school for 4 years while resembled the pattern. I love the flying geese with it. I bought "modern" fabric for a house quilt and have never used it. I think it would make terrific schoollhouse, too. Give a different look to a vintage style pattern. Blue is my favorite color and naturally I love the Little Blue Schoolhouse kit. Great job!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  108. Love all your patterns, but I think I would have to pick Rootbeer and Cotton Candy. I also love pinks and browns together.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Congratulations on being included in Vol. 7! How exciting.
    Your block is great.

    Your patterns are all very nice. It was tough choosing but then I saw the one named, Tussy Mussy and had to take a closer look. I love Dresden Plates and the small picture almost looked like something similar. When I clicked to look at the larger picture I knew I needed to choose that one. It's awesome and one I had never seen before now. BUT.........as much as I love that one, I continued looking at the rest instead of stopping there. Then I saw the Wee Whimsies~Round Two and thought those would be super fun to make. I can see many of those becoming hot pads for Christmas gifts and mug rugs or little wall hangings or a lot of fun things.
    So, that's the one I would choose; Wee Whimsies~Round Two.
    Thank you so much for the chance to win our choice of a pattern and the magazine. How nice of you.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I love the Little Red Schoolhouse. All of your patterns are so darned cute, it is hard to pick. Great job on your block. I love both of the settings that you show. It always helps to have a picture of what a finished quilt might look like.

Congratulations! Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  141. I really like your Towne Square block. As a new quilter I am amazed at how a single block can be transformed into beautiful quilts with just a few simple additions. I love all your patterns but instantly fell in love with the Heartland Heritage Sampler pattern. Thank you for the free Sweetest Things pattern. Congratulations! anglanouette(at)gmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  147. I would have to pick Done in a Jiff but I love the block you chose for 100 Blocks and can definitely see a quilt with it in my future.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I didn't see any that I didn't like. I want to do a blue quilt so the blueberry pie pattern would be great. Thanks, Nancy P.

    ReplyDelete

  151. I just discovered your Blog and website a few weeks ago. Very nice. The Stillwater Creek pattern looks like one I would really enjoy stitching. Thanks for the opportunity and nice job on your block for Vol 7.

    ReplyDelete
  152. I love your patterns and have a couple of them already but I would love the Fab Four (and a few more) to add to what I have. I love that pattern. And thank for a great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  153. Love ALL your patterns, but if I had to pick one... um. Oh, it would have to be Tussy Mussy! Love the name of the pattern and the use of all the scrap fabric. It is also a smaller quilt, which is the only kind I have time to finish! LOL

    Love following your blog!
    Christine

  154. I liked Blueberry Pie. Looks like it would e interesting to make. Thank you for sharing your block with us today.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Summer Cottage, or Heart of the prairie both caught my eye! But it is really hard to choose. Love your block in QM too! Can't wait for the next sew-along! Thank you for the fun!

  157. In Journey 4, the blue schoolhouse pattern is one that has caught my eye! I really like it. I'm now enjoying your Heart of the Prairie fabrics and incorporating them into a Civil War sampler quilt that a friend and I are working on together.

    ReplyDelete
  158. I chose The Soldier's Wife just because of the name...because I am one. But as I read your description about how wives stitched while they waited for their husband's to return from war, well it kinda hit home because that is exactly what I did in 2010. I made a deployment quilt to busy myself because by February, I hadn't heard from my husband since Christmas of 2009 and it wasn't until April that I finally got an email from him. By then the quilt top was done, and now my Garden Trellis quilt is a reminder of how I grew stronger in the Lord while waiting!

    ReplyDelete
  159. I adore applique and Cotton Blossoms is tight up my needle. Great!

    ReplyDelete
  160. I'd pick Stillwater Creek. I love Ohio star blocks

    ReplyDelete
  161. I love several of your patterns but Union Blues caught my eye. I like the secondary pattern that evolved when the primary blocks were sewn together.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Love Fritzie's Closet. Thanks for the chance to win!!

    ReplyDelete
  163. It is a hard choice to make, but I like Lucky Day and Shop Girl is a close 2nd. I like your block and your quilt layouts. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Gosh, that was hard to pick just one, but I have it narrowed down to "The Soldier's Wife". Several of my great, great, g'fathers and also various uncles and cousins were in the Civil War. I imagine that their wives stayed home and were probably very lonely during the time that they were away. Trying to hold down the homestead and care for their families by themselves in those times could not have been easy.

  165. Hi Pam, Your block is really neat!! I see lots of possibility's with that one. As for my favorite pattern, I love The Little Red School House! I want to make that to go with the house quilt I made for PWSC.

  167. I've always loved Blueberry Pie since I saw it in a magazine but since I have that pattern already, I would say that the Heritage Sampler would be nice. I would be happy to win any of your designs, they are just my style! Robin rnoel57@gmail. Com

  173. I like the block that has been chosen for Vol 7! And all of your quilts are lovely and beautiful. If I had to choose just one, it would be In A Jiffy. I love the use of scraps, and I have always been partial to stars. Congratulations on having one of your blocks chosen and thank you for a chance to win a prize!

  182. Geez, that was a very difficult assignment. I like all your patterns. I love small quilts and all of your charm patterns are fantastic,so I just can't pick a favorite of those. Of the large quilts I'm picking Blueberry Pie even though I really like them all. That name is just yummy!

  183. I think I'd choose Endless Summer, but I must agree with many of your fans - they're all great!

  184. I know it's not a pattern, but I think your book, Heartspun Quilts book of Quilting Hints, Tips, Secrets & How-To's Book, would be a great reference for any quilter's library. Of your patterns, I like Heart of the Prairie.
