Prairie Dry Goods Quilts PREORDER!!


Introducing two brand new quilt designs featuring all of the fabrics in my new Prairie Dry Goods fabrics for Marcus Fabrics!

Prairie Dry Goods has a gorgeous array of prints in a rainbow of colors!  I ask you....when do you get all of these colors, in a variety of prints, all made of historic reproduction fabrics??  

Not that often!  So....here is your chance to get this collection in your choice of two quilt kits!

Each kit uses a 10 inch precut bundle, so you get 42 prints to play with!  Yippee!

Introducing Needle & Thread, the first quilt I designed for Prairie Dry Goods.  It has all of the colors in the collection as well as all four creamy neutral prints.  

These fabrics are the soft blue stripe for the sashing, and the awesome blue print for the border.  The blue print is very, very early and may date to the eighteenth century!  Swoon!

Quilt size is 55 x 60.  Click here to read all of the details and place your order for Needle & Thread!!

And here is Mercantile Nine Patch.  I wanted the second quilt to be very different from Needle & Thread, and it features a block I think we all love.....a classic Nine Patch.

While I do love a Nine Patch, I don't always enjoy cutting and piecing a million pieces....but don't fret!  These Nine Patch blocks are made from strip sets!  Yes! (fist pump!!)  Strip the pieces and subcut....so you're never piecing with just two tiny squares.

I chose a green border for my quilt, but perhaps green is not your favorite.  

Well...we can change that.

So, how about red?

Or perhaps brown?

Oh, brown would be lovely, too!

You can choose what color you'd like for your Mercantile Nine Patch quilt making it very special, indeed.  You can also choose to order backings for your quilts at a special price when ordered with the quilt kit.

Click here to read all of the details and place your order for your very own Mercantile Nine Patch.

You must PREORDER your quilt(s) no later than end of the day, Sunday, August 15th.  

I will not stock extra kits, so if you want one, please don't delay, and place your order ASAP.  Precuts of all fabric collections go very quickly, and I need to get my order into Marcus Fabrics to have the precuts, and the fabric yardage needed for these special quilts.

I expect to ship the quilt kits late in September.  I sincerely hope you like my Needle & Thread and Mercantile Nine Patch quilts as much as I do.  Let me say, it's been a real joy to piece with so many colors and so many reproduction prints!  

Thank you, thank you so very much for your continued support of Heartspun Quilts as I couldn't keep going without you!

Keep your needle busy and your heart content.  Be well, my friends.

Teeny Tiny Star Sew along ~ Part Three


It's time for us to meet again to sew together, and may I say how much I enjoy meeting like this once a week.  I hope you do as well.

Last week, we completed our center block, and there's not much left to do to complete our tiny quilt.  That's one of the big pluses about making such a little quilt....it's done quickly!

We will sew our (4) corner triangles to the center block next.  When sewing a triangle to a square (our center block), the triangle must be positioned at the true center of the square or the raw edges of the triangles won't match up.  

The easiest way to do this is to gently fold your triangle in half, right sides together, and finger press the center.  Fold the square (your center block) in half wrong sides together, and finger press.

Then, simply match both finger pressed creases.  Pin and sew, pressing to the corner triangle.  Do this for each of the four sides of the square.  Voila!  Your center square is now on point!

Follow along in your pattern and sew the blue side borders to the quilt center.

Next comes the top & bottom red borders. 

Last, sew the blue top and bottom borders.  Guess what?  Your Teeny Tiny Star quilt is complete!  Don't have the pattern?  Click here and make a Teeny Tiny quilt for your very own!

PLEASE post a photo of your Teeny Tiny Star quilt to social media using hashtag #teenytinyquiltclub.  If you search that hashtag on Instagram, all of the photos of our club quilts will pop up.  There are about 8-10 on there now, so it will be so fun to see all of your quilts in the coming weeks.

In The Studio.......this week, Debbie is assembling my new quilt called Needle & Thread.

Needle & Thread ~ Designed by Pam Buda 
This quilt uses all of the fabrics from my new Prairie Dry Goods fabric collection.  And, guess what?  All of the colors in the blocks are made from a 10 x 10 precut!  Yup....so exciting!  

I will be taking pre-orders for Needle & Thread very soon, so think about it.  Quilt size is 55 x 60.  Those 10 x 10 precuts do not last long, so if you're interested, please pre-order!  I'll show you more photos of the fabrics and give more details about Needle & Thread in my next post.

Keep your needle busy and your heart content.  Be well, my friends....
