Dear Prudence ~ Quilt Archaeology Revealed!


Today is the Big Reveal of the quilt I chose for my next Quilt Archaeology event!!  I named this quilt..... Dear Prudence.

I really loved this quilt the moment I found it.  I love the Birds in the Air blocks with the pink background running through them all, and the variety of dark prints that really pop against the pink ground.  The dark inner border gives a frame to the blocks, and a different pink print completes the quilt.  Oh, so vintage!  

My Farmer's Daughter fabric collection was the perfect match for Dear Prudence!  I was so jazzed to see what she would look like, and I'm over the moon happy with how this little sweetie turned out.  The quilt size is 18 x 23.

I hope you love Dear Prudence as much as I do.  As with every Quilt Archaeology event, I offer a FREE KIT for this exact quilt with a qualifying order.....and, you can sew along with me in the weeks to come.

Dear Prudence is the largest doll quilt kit I have offered as a FREE thank you with your order.  It also has more fabrics than any other QA project, but I wanted to offer Dear Prudence to you, and YOU'RE WORTH IT!   So, settle somewhere comfy while I tell you all the details.  

Starting right now, and through Sunday, September 26th,  place an order totaling $45 or more (not including shipping) on my website for anything you'd like, and you will automatically receive a Dear Prudence kit with your order!!  Nothing to add to your cart.  I'll take care of it all on my end.  

My Dear Prudence pattern is a FREE digital download.  Whether you're making the quilt with the FREE kit, or would like to make the quilt using your own fabrics, be sure to download the pattern before Monday, September 27th.  After that, it will be available for a nominal fee.  So, get it while it's FREE!  Click here for the Dear Prudence pattern.

My Dear Prudence Sew-along begins Friday, October 8th right here on my blog.  Be sure to sew-along for some really good sewing hints.  I highly recommend preparing your fabric yardage (before cutting anything!) with spray starch or sizing.  This helps immensely with every step, from cutting to piecing.

Oh, and one more thing.....once you have printed 
your Dear Prudence pattern, give it a quick read.  

I swear by using Seam Align Glue when piecing the Birds in the Air blocks.  I promise you....you will LOVE this product and won't be able to live without it.

Select a bottle of Seam Align Glue as the first item in your Heartspun Quilts shopping cart, so it arrives along with your quilt kit and other goodies, and you can use it right away as we sew along.  The Dear Prudence pattern will show you how it's used in the making of the blocks.  Find the Seam Align under the Notions tab on my website.  It's only $8 and lasts a long time.

Let me show you all of the new quilting goodies you can choose from at Heartspun Quilts!

All of my Prairie Dry Goods yardage is now in stock!  Fat quarter bundles,  and 10 x 10's, too!

Farmer's Daughter yardage and Fat Quarter bundles are waiting for YOU!
Along with Country Meadow yardage and Fat Quarters....
Don't forget about Primitive Traditions, too!
You can also select 10 x 10 inch precuts.....
And...I have cut up a huge selection of color bank bundles! 
What are color bank bundles, you ask?
They're bundles of fat quarters with a selection of prints all in the same color.
What's so great about that?  Well, I find sometimes my stash can use more greens when I am working on an applique project, or I just don't have many pinks because they're few and far between, or I'm working on a brown scrappy quilt, and can use a larger selection of browns.  And, can we ever have enough neutrals or shirtings?  Each bundle has an up-close photo of the exact fabrics you will receive.  I am always making new bundles, so check back often for new color banks.  I have loads of new ones right now.  Click here.

There's a huge selection of patterns to choose from, and my newest patterns,
Needle & Thread...
...Mercantile Nine Patch, and....
...Hands to Work are all waiting for you, too!

Shop patterns, books and notions....there's a whole lot to explore.  It won't be hard to qualify for a FREE Dear Prudence kit.  Just place an order for $45 or more (not including shipping) on my website, and I'll automatically pack your kit with your order!

I will have your order packed and shipped just as soon as I can.  I'm really excited to begin sewing with you!

Remember, the first instruction post for the Dear Prudence sew-along is Friday, October 8th.  It will end Friday, October 29th.

It is so very important for me to thank each and every one of you for supporting my little business.  I know you have many, many choices for quilting goodies and I appreciate each and every order, email and social media comment.  This free pattern and kit is my way of thanking you for allowing me to keep creating the things we love.  So...a big heartfelt THANK YOU to you all!!!
