Can't Believe It's Me in AP&Q Magazine!!!

Quilt in the photo is Scraps from Home bonus project in
Journey One of The Prairie Women's Sewing Circle club.
I am still in disbelief over having been chosen to be featured in a profile article in American Patchwork & Quilting magazine!!  But here it is...it's finally out, and I am humbled and grateful for this wonderful adventure!

My profile article appears in the December, 2015 issue which is arriving now in your mail box, your local quilt shop, and newsstands everywhere.





Several members of the American Patchwork & Quilting magazine staff came to visit us the week following the July 4th holiday, and did we ever have fun!  Oh...just a little stress when a national magazine comes to photograph your home!!  But, they took all the worries away, and we all enjoyed every moment.

I was also blessed to design a special quilt just for this issue, and it's called Prairie At Heart.  The name says it all for me, and you can read lots more about what inspires me, and see lots of pictures of my home and sewing room.

Prairie At Heart was inspired by an amazing nineteenth century antique quilt that just caught my eye for it's powerful pizzazz, and patchwork simplicity.  One glorious, yet easy-to-piece block, with loads of shirtings and dark prints, set on diagonal point against a sweet navy blue print fabric, just really jazzed me!!    I hope you love it, too!!

The pattern for Prairie At Heart is, of course, found in the pages of this, the December, 2015 issue. Also in this issue is a web link to see even more photos of my home!


Kits are available, with exactly the same fabrics I used, 
all from my Antique Cotton fabric collection for Marcus Fabrics.  


Click here to order a kit, and bring a little Prairie into your home.  



I'll share more photos of my home, and some behind-the-scenes pictures of the photo shoot in my next blog post!!  I also invite you to click on over to the Marcus Fabrics blog, where you'll see a few pictures you won't see here.  

And...I'll have a BIG GIVE-AWAY next week, so watch my blog for news!!  So exciting!!  

Sending out the biggest THANK YOU to all the amazing and oh-so-talented women working at American Patchwork & Quilting magazine.  You're a joy to work with each and every time I am lucky enough to do so!!!  


Find some time for the stitching that feeds your soul!

  2. Congrats! Will have to look for it. Love to see more 'traditional style' quilts rather than the modern brights. The quality you provide seems to be a bit of a rarity in many magazines these days. Just one of the reasons I appreciate your blog too:)

  23. I was so excited when my magazine arrived and I saw the article -- it is well done and was so nice to get to know you a little better through the tour of your home and the displays of quilts and samplers. It was a great article on a very special designer -- thanks for sharing your talents with all of us. Congratulations!

  25. I was thrilled to see your spread in my current issue of APQ, I am working on the prairie gathering b.o.m. The quilt shop I signed up with is not so good at supplying the correct amount of fabrics, though. I had errors the first month, then the last two months. I do get the rest of fabric sent to me, and have asked that the owner re check my order before being sent. I will go elsewhere next time. I will try to find a private email for you to tell you which shop this is.

    1. Jane, I would definitely like to know what shop you are having issues with. There should be a comfortable amount of extra fabric each month and you should never have any fabric issues like this. I designed the program so there wouldn't be this type of problem. You can email me Pam@HeartspunQuilts.com

      Thank you! Pam
