Tiny Baskets Are Calling You!!


My Tiny Baskets quilt pattern is finally completed.  I'm thinking there are a few more Tiny Basket quilts on the cover than you were expecting....and you're right!

I first shared a block with you...

...then a peek at the quilt top.

Then a reveal of the quilt all finished.  Oh how I love it!  I loved making the blocks so much, I couldn't stop....so.....

I made a smaller quilt with 5 Tiny Baskets.  I have a very special place for this quilt with a fun idea to display it.  Watch for more about the display idea coming very soon.  Still...I couldn't stop making these adorable blocks.  What is it about tiny quilt blocks that make them so darn cute, and quite frankly, irresistible?

My last quilt is Teeny Tiny Basket with just one Tiny Basket.  Super cute!!   Instructions for all three of the quilts are included in the pattern.

If Tiny Baskets are calling to you, click here to order the pattern.  

The other quilt patterns made from my Primitive Traditions fabric collection (for Marcus Fabrics) will be ready soon.  

Happy Stitches Always....Be Well.....

Monday's With Marcus II ~

Happy, happy Monday!  Oh yes....we're back with another featured Marcus Fabrics designer.

This week, Tracy Souza of Plumcute Designs is offering a sweet project for embroidery enthusiasts.  Isn't her Make Something Sweet design adorable?  Be sure to browse her website when you visit to download her free pattern.  Don't forget to also visit Monday's With Marcus Facebook page to LIKE/FOLLOW/SHARE for a chance to win fabric each week!!  Who wouldn't love more fabric, right?!!

I'm so excited to announce a new Quilt Archaeology coming soon.  I recently acquired an adorable vintage doll quilt that I think you'll love as much as I do.  So, so charming.

But, right now, we are busy, busy, busy cutting a whole lot of kits from the Primitive Traditions collection.  I must take care of those quilt kit orders first.  I'm also working on sending a new fabric collection into Marcus, and designing a few quilts for upcoming collections already in production.  Gratefully, I am never bored!  Soon, I'll be showing my new Farmer's Daughter line...very different from my usual palette, and I'm loving it!  

Best get back to cutting so I can get those orders out.  Sincerely hoping you are all doing well, and finding time everyday to do what makes you happy!  Be well.....

Country Roads Quilt Pre-Order


Country Roads quilt by Pam Buda
AAHHH!!!  I'm so jazzed that my Country Meadow fabrics are coming soon!!

As I write this, Country Roads is being quilted.  I snapped a few photos before it left home.

Seeing the fabrics sewn into blocks gives them a new and wonderful look!  Visit my Instagram page to view two short videos of the blocks and fabrics up close.  You'll love it!

The Country Meadow fabric collection features seven creamy, dreamy neutrals....

...nine soft and yummy green prints....

...and nine beautiful blues.  Wrapping them all together is the gorgeous, soft gray print with blue and green flowers.  I promise you, photos don't do these fabrics justice!  I can't tell you how jazzed I am over how wonderful this quilt looks all pieced together.  So soft and cozy!

Country Meadow will be arriving at your LQS sometime in May.  This is another fabric collection stuck on a ship somewhere, waiting its turn to clear customs.  So....now is the time to PRE-ORDER your Country Roads quilt kit.

Click here to find the details and pre-order a kit just for you!!  Kits will not be available after April 23, 2021....and the pattern is FREE with your pre-order!  

Back in my studio.....I am still waiting on the Primitive Traditions fabrics to arrive.  Putting the final touches and proofing on all the patterns in this group.  Waiting on the sample yardage of my brand new fabric collection called Farmer's Daughter, and working on getting a new collection into the Marcus design office.  Plenty to keep me busy and out of trouble.....teehee!  

Hope you find time each day to stitch and make your soul happy!  Be well......

Hickory Sticks by Pam Buda
My Hickory Sticks quilt is back from my quilter and I'm so loving the way it turned out.  It's a great cuddle quilt that I think guys and girls would both like.

Unfortunately, like so many goods coming into US ports, my Primitive Traditions fabrics has been delayed.  Arrival is now expected the end of April or early May.  Sob, sob.....we've waited so long already!  But...there's nothing we can do but wait with anticipation.

Enjoy your day and I know you have good stuff to keep your stitching fingers busy!

Be well.......
