Pre-Order Tree Farm Quilt Kits & Bundles!


Tree Farm is my newest fabric collection and it's coming soon.  This collection doesn't scream Christmas but sure does bring the holiday to life.  

Tree Farm designed by Pam Buda ~ HeartspunQuilts.com
This quilt is called Tree Farm and is the main quilt featuring all of the fabrics in the collection.  Christmas trees are the focus of our Christmas holiday, and I wanted to create a quilt celebrating the tree.  

The large blocks have a tree in the center, surrounded by a red wreath.  The block is 18 inches and is made from Half Square Triangles and connector corners.  Pretty easy piecing.  The quilt measures 88 x 88.

Christmas Stars designed by Pam Buda ~ HeartspunQuilts.com
If you're a star block lover like me, you understand why I had to create a star quilt using the Tree Farm collection.  What would  Christmas be without without some twinkle?  This quilt, called Christmas Stars, features green and red stars and is surrounded by a Flying Geese border, then framed with a red border using the feather tree print.  I adore the feather tree print and I used it a lot.  This quilt measures 72 x 81 with 9 inch blocks.

Christmas Lily designed by Pam Buda ~ HeartspunQuilts.com

The final quilt features a classic Carolina Lily block.  The blocks are made with Flying Geese and connector corners, so very do-able, and has a touch of applique for the stems and the leaves.  This quilt is a quintessential Christmas design, and I love it!  Called Christmas Lily, the quilt has just three fabrics and measures 25 x 25 inches.  

There are fourteen prints in the Tree Farm collection.  Four warm neutrals, four reds, four greens, one brown (for the tree trunks) and a dark green/black pine print for the Tree Farm quilt border.

The Tree Farm fabric is due to arrive early in June.  I will ship your quilt kit(s) and bundles just as soon as I can get them all cut and prepared, which will be a little later in June.

You can pre-order any and all of the Tree Farm quilt kits.  There are options for a specially priced backing for the quilts also.  You can read all the details for each quilt on my website.

You can also pre-order a Fat Quarter bundle, Half Yard or Full yard bundle as well.  (Half yard and full yard bundles are only available as a pre-order.)

Doll Bed Dowry ~ Burst of Spring Freebie!


Hello, dear quilting friends.  I know it's been a long time since I posted anything.  I have not been working as I recover from spine surgery, but I'm slowly back to work, and doing a little better each day.

While I was recovering, I have been designing and planning lots of good stuff for the future.  I also wanted to offer another Doll Bed Dowry FREEBIE event, and I thought now is just the right time to do that.  

Burst of Spring Quilt
Designed by Pam Buda ~ HeartspunQuilts.com
Spring has arrived here, and I have been itching to be outdoors and enjoy the flowers (especially after being stuck inside recovering!) The flowers inspired the quilt design.

The quilt is called Burst of Spring, and just like the Quilt Archaeology promotions, the pattern is FREE until Monday, April 22nd.  Not only is the quilt pattern free, you can get a FREE Burst of Spring quilt kit FREE with a $50 purchase!!

 I adore the background fabric I used in this quilt as it's full of lively spring colors and is a whimsical design.  I chose some pink, blue, green and purple fabrics to pair with the background fabric, and made Pinwheels (one of my favorite blocks) and square in a square blocks for an easy-to-piece quilt.  Honestly, this quilt really is a quick stitch.  The quilt size is 15 x 18....very do-able.  You will receive the same fabrics in your kit.

Have I piqued your interest?  Visit my website and shop for any quilting goodies you like.  Make a purchase totaling $50 or more (not including shipping) and you automatically qualify for the FREE Burst of Spring quilt kit!  (The kit has a yard of fabric, and with the free pattern, is a $25 value.....for FREE!!)  No need to add anything to your shopping cart.  I will include your kit with your qualifying order.

I have a whole lot of brand new color bank Fat Quarter bundles to choose from...

Not to mention all the new fabrics from.....

This is the perfect time to shop the many quilt kits I have to offer, too...like the Haunted Halloween quilt kit.  Three quilts in one kit!
Be sure to download the Burst of Spring pattern now!  It's only FREE until Monday, April 22nd.  (Starting Monday, there will be a nominal fee for the pattern.)

The free kit and pattern is a token of thanks to show my gratitude for your continued support of my little business.  I surely wouldn't be here without you!  Please know that I am truly grateful for each and every order.  I know you have lots of choices in quilting goodies, and appreciate your business which keeps me going!

Pre-Order Maple House Quilt Kit & Bundles!


Maple House is my newest fabric collection for Marcus Fabrics.  Done in warm and cozy browns and neutrals, paired with pretty blues, I hope Maple House will become one of your favorite fabric collections, too!

Maple House designed by Pam Buda  Quilt size 73 x 89
My Maple House quilt features sawtooth stars in the blue and brown prints, but what really puts the quilt over the top (in my humble opinion) are the sashings and the gorgeous border print.

While antiquing, I found this adorable floral print.  Honestly, I love it so much.  So, I used it as a sashing in between the stars in the block.  

Now you can see the real floral print fabric.  I also found the wonderful brown stripe.  That inspired me to use it as the sashing between the four stars blocks.  I love how it turned out!!  I think both of the sashings really "make" the quilt.  It would really look different without them!
Here's an up close photo of both sashing prints.
Then, there's the beautiful border print.  The blue is lighter in this photo than it really is, but you can really see the detail of the print, so I posted it.  I can't tell you how rich and gorgeous it is in person. 
I love it so much that I did a version in a variety of neutral colors.  Wow....it turned out just so pretty, too!

Last, but certainly not least, are the many blue, brown and neutral prints in Maple House.  There are 22 prints in the entire collection.  

I invite you to place a pre-order for a Maple House quilt kit.  The fabrics are due to arrive mid to late March, and as soon as they arrive, and we cut, fold and bundle, we will have your order on its way to you!  The quilt size is 73 x 89.  The Maple House pattern is FREE with your pre-ordered kit!  (A $13 value)

You can order just the Maple House quilt, or choose to order the quilt kit and backing fabric.  You have three choices for a backing fabric, and the backing is specially priced at $11. yard if ordered with the quilt kit.  The backing required 5 1/2 yards.

You can also pre-order a Fat Quarter, Half Yard or Full Yard bundle as well.  (Half Yd and Full Yd bundles are only available as a pre-order.)

I have posted a video of the Maple House quilt on my Instagram account (Heartspun Quilts)  Check it out and please follow me!!

Please place your pre-order no later than February 20th.

The Piecemakers Sampler BOM is up and running in many shopes.  Some quilt shops still haven't started theirs, so if you're inspired to join, please do!!  

I have all of the Piecemakers Sampler fabrics in stock right now.  Click here to shop.

The Strawberry Emery fabrics arrived two days ago, and we've all be cutting and folding our little hearts out to get it ready to ship.  If you ordered a kit or bundle, hang in there just a little longer!!  It's coming very soon.

I'm working on a little spring quilt, and ruminating over several new fabric collections.  One that is coming very soon may shock you a little bit!  It's really not at all like my usual fabric collections and I can't wait to share it with you.  I know....it's a tease, but I can't spill the beans just yet. 

I hope all is well with you and your family.  Keep your needle busy and your heart content.  

As always...thank you for supporting my little business.  I wouldn't be here without you!

Pre-Order Strawberry Emery Quilt & Bundles!!


Emery quilt by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts
It seems like I've been waiting forever for this fabric to arrive, but it's almost here and I am beyond jazzed!!!  Introducing my new quilt Emery, made from my new Strawberry Emery fabric collection.  

Do you wonder what a strawberry emery is?  Well....it's the little strawberry that usually hangs from a tomato pin cushion.  The emery is there to sharpen needles.  

I collect strawberry emeries from the nineteenth century.  They were a prized sewing notion, made separately from the tomato, often made with silk and velvet, and sometimes adorned with silver tops.  They are tiny, with the largest one in the photo only 1 1/2 inches.  They are stuffed very hard with emery (the grit you find on nail files,) and I can't imagine how they sewed these tiny strawberries together with the emery so packed in there.  I just love them!

The quilt was just finished and is off to be quilted.  I can't wait to get it back.  I was able to video the quilt top in full sunlight, but it seems to have washed out the fabrics from what they really are.  Look at the photos below which I took in the house out of the direct sun.  Those are the real colors.

 Emery measures 63 x 73.  You can pre-order my Emery quilt kit with optional backing at a special price with the pre-order.  

Click here to pre-order the Emery quilt kit.
The Strawberry Emery collection has seven lush reds....
...five yummy neutrals....
 and eight stunning black prints.  

You can pre-order a Fat Quarter, Half Yard or One Yard bundle by clicking here.

You have until the end of the day, January 17th to pre-order your quilt kit and/or bundle.  

Strawberry Emery is scheduled to arrive mid-February, so as soon as I can cut and fold the kits and bundles, I'll have your order to you!!  I can hardly wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


My Piecemakers Sampler fabric is starting to arrive.  I received my first order, and am waiting on my second order due to arrive this week.  We are working hard on cutting and folding to get those pre-orders out as soon as possible.

We're also stuffing a ton of Piecemakers Sampler patterns which are due to ship to participating quilt shops next week.  The BOM program begins in February.  Yup....we're busy!

I'm also working on future fabric collections with a lot of new stuff in the works.  Always very excited about that.  

I hope you enjoyed your holidays.  We've begun a New Year, so let's keep our needles busy and our hearts content.  Be well.......

I just received my sample yardage of this to-die-for collection, so I'll be starching, cutting and sewing as soon as I can.  Strawberry Emery is due to arrive in February.

I want to share this beautiful quilt with you.  It was made by Cindy Williams of Louisville, KY.  She used bundles from my two  Plumberry fabric collections.  Cindy used Marsha McCloskey's Storm At Sea pattern.  I sure love the Storm At Sea design and this quilt does not disappoint!  It's stunning!!  Thanks, Cindy, for allowing me to share your gorgeous quilt with everyone.

Keep your needle busy and your heart content!  Be well....

Doll Bed Dowry ~ Christmas Eve Quilt Freebie!


A little change from my Quilt Archaeology promotions (which I love), I thought I'd introduce something new with Doll Bed Dowry.

What's up with the name?  Well, any little doll and her bed would need a selection of quilts, and isn't that what a dowry is?  It was said, way back when, that a woman needed thirteen quilts for her dowry, with the last one, the thirteenth, being the most lovely of them all.  I thought it a fitting name for a pile of lovely doll quilts.  The dowry quilts are not based on an old quilt, like Quilt Archaeology, but are of my own design.

Christmas Eve - by Pam Buda of HeartspunQuilts.com
This quilt, called Christmas Eve, is the first in the Doll Bed Dowry series.  Just like Quilt Archaeology, the pattern is free until Monday.

Quilt size is 16" x 16"

Place an order for $45 or more (not including shipping) of any quilting goodies on my website, and I'll include the kit absolutely FREE!  No need to add anything to your shopping cart, I will include it with your qualifying order.

REMEMBER to download your FREE Christmas Eve pattern before Monday, December 4th.  After that, it is still available for a nominal fee.

Here's what's new.....

The Save-All Quilt by Pam Buda of HeartspunQuilts.com

I have several kits available.....

....many, many new color bank bundles.....
....lots and lots of yardage, including my new Butternut & Peppercorn 2 collection, and notions....lots of quilting goodies to choose from!

The free pattern is a token of thanks to all of you for your continued support of my little business.  I am so very grateful for each and every order, and quite frankly, wouldn't continue to be here without you!  I hope you like making this sweet, little quilt.  I know you have a lot of choices in quilting goodies, and I thank you so very much for your orders.
