Tokens of the Past: Prairie Life

I'm so jazzed to be able to finally show you the three quilts in my newest Tokens of the Past: Prairie Life pattern.

Yes...you will make all the blocks for all three quilts from just one 10 x 10 precut of my newest fabric collections, Pam's Prairie Basics & Shirtings.  The Prairie Life pattern includes instructions for all three quilts, and has instructions to make each quilt separately as well. 

 First up is Pantry Box, which measures 31.5" x 31.5".  It's easy to piece and very graphic which I love.  Red, blue and green are my core colors and this quilt can live anywhere in my home.  I really liked it over the old ironing board.  

Once again, my friend Ronda worked her magic with her quilting talents.  
For each quilt, I just had to try to highlight the quilting.  It adds so very much to any quilt.
Next is a quilt called Painted Cupboard which measures 40" x 40".  There's something so classic and wonderful about adding black to a room, and quilts are no exception.  

Black goes with everything and sure made these Ohio Star blocks shine a little brighter.
Love that quilting!!  
Last, but not least, is Pie Safe which measures 36" x 45".

A simple block with traditional appeal, I thoroughly enjoyed pairing different fabric combos for each block.

Hope you have found some quilting ideas for when you make the Prairie Life Trio!  Pam's Prairie Basics & Shirtings is available now at your local quilt shop.  Please ask for the patterns and fabrics at your favorite LQS!  If they are not available in your area, read on.....

You will find the Tokens of the Past: Prairie Life pattern here.

You can also order the Tokens: Prairie Life complete kit, and for a limited time, you will receive the pattern FREE!  Click here to order the complete kit with all the same fabrics I used for all three quilts.

Also available are the Pam's Prairie Basics & Shirtings 10 x 10 precuts.  I know many of you have written me to say that you love the 10 x 10 precuts for all your scrappy quilting needs as Fat Quarter bundles are a little too much fabric for your scrappy quilts.  You'll find my 10 x 10 precut bundles here.

The pre-spring quilt market madness goes on in the flurry to complete the last two quilts.  Cottonwood Creek is almost done and the new version of Peacefield is headed to my quilter, Ronda.

New color bank bundles are also being created as is a new Limited Edition quilt offering....all coming soon.  Well....as soon as I finished piecing Cottonwood Creek!  Check out my Instagram and Facebook posts for more sneak peeks as well as my next blog post.

Until then....reward yourself with some time with needle and thread.  


  1. Another beautiful fabric line, Pam. Such deep, rich colors--just lovely! I can see several I will want in yardage! The pattern designs are great, but those fabrics really make them sing!

  2. They are all beautiful! Can't wait to get to Cyndi's on Saturday!

  3. You can add the black, border and background to my existing order, cuz I'll probably have enough coloured fabric left to make Painted Cupboard!! I need to stop reading your blog!!! LOL

  4. They are all gorgeous Pam, but I really, really love Painted Cupboard. The colors and the quilting is awesome!

  5. Gorgeous quilt, and wonderful you have a firefighter son. They are all so deserving of honor and our thanks.
