Primitive Traditions Quilt Collection


Introducing the new collection of quilt designs 
featuring Primitive Traditions, Folk Art Stars and 
Prairie Plaids fabrics!
Primitive Traditions ~ Designed by Pam Buda
This quilt is the collection namesake, Primitive Traditions.  I know it may look very hard, but in fact it won't be as hard as it looks.  Almost all of the units can be made larger and trimmed down.  It uses 2 Deb Tucker trimming rulers.  And, I will be making a technique video showing exactly how to use the rulers, and make these blocks!

I love the secondary, circular design the kite units create, and the Folk Art Stars fabrics are fussy cut in the center of the pieced Friendship Star blocks.  For me, black border quilts are among the most striking, stunning quilts as the black fabric just makes all of the other colors pop!

Folk Art Stars ~ Designed by Pam Buda
Next up....Folk Art Stars quilt.  This quilt also features fussy cut centers of the Folk Art Stars fabric collection, and all of the prints from the Primitive Traditions fabrics, but isn't as much work as the Primitive Traditions quilt.  Ohio Star blocks are framed with black sashing and finished with the blue Folk Art Stars border.  

Hickory Sticks ~ Designed by Pam Buda
Next is Hickory Sticks....the easiest of the large quilts.  The Folk Art Stars print is in the center of each block with no fussy cut stars.  The blocks begin from strip sets, so easy peasy!  Again...a stunning black border makes the rest of the colors really stand out.

Tiny Baskets ~ Designed by Pam Buda
I have been wanting to make this quilt for a long time.  If you're like me and LOVE making small blocks, you will really enjoy making this quilt.  My Tiny Baskets quilt measures 16 x 20 - a small quilt to be sure!  
Patriotic Folk Art Stars Table Topper ~ Designed by Pam Buda
I wanted to design a very simple table topper that showcased the Folk Art Stars prints.
This is the patriotic version.  The Folk Art Stars Topper patterns will be available at your LQS and HeartspunQuilts.com as a free, downloadable pattern.  Kits will be available for pre-order.  Here are the other holiday versions of the topper design.

Christmas Folk Art Stars Table Topper ~ Designed by Pam Buda
All of the quilt images shown here are Electric Quilt images and appear much darker than they will really be in person.  Here is a photo of the Folk Art Stars prints.....
You can see they are not as dark as the EQ images make them appear.  

The Primitive Traditions cottons, the Folk Art Star cottons and the Primitive Plaid wovens will be arriving at your LQS and at Heartspun Quilts late March, 2021.  Please.....ask for them at your LQS and always buy first from your favorite quilt shop.  They need us all to support them and keep them in business!  

If your shop doesn't have these fabrics, they will be available on my website.  Very soon, I will be taking pre-orders for the Primitive Traditions, Folk Art Stars, Hickory Sticks and Tiny Baskets quilts.  If you're interested, you must pre-order your kit with a small deposit.  I will only order fabric for the pre-ordered kits, so think about it.  I'll write a blog post, send a newsletter, and post on social media when I have all of the final details and can begin taking pre-orders. 

The Folk Art Star Table Toppers will also be available for pre-order.  

I encourage you to follow me on Facebook and Instagram as I will be posting photos of my progress while making the quilts.  There's so much more good quilting stuff coming this year, not only from me, but from Marcus Fabrics, too!  

We're still in the deep freeze here in Chicagoland, and will be for about the next two weeks.  So, I intend to be sewing, sewing, sewing!  

Stay safe, my friends, and be well......
