Quilt Archaeology ~ Glad Tidings REVEALED!!!!


Today is the Big Reveal of the quilt I have chosen for my next Quilt Archaeology event!!  I named this quilt..... Glad Tidings.

My Prairie Dry Goods fabric collection was the perfect match for Glad Tidings!  The truth is you can make just about any quilt from Prairie Dry Goods, what with that luscious range of colors in historic reproduction prints!  I will definitely be making more quilts from Prairie Dry Goods.

Here is the antique quilt that inspired Glad Tidings.  I thought it was the perfect little Christmas quilt that can be pieced in a jiffy.  It will only take us three weeks to make the quilt and we'll be finished by Dec 17th.  Quilt size is 14 1/2 x 16 1/2 inches.

I hope you love Glad Tidings 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.  So, settle somewhere comfy while I tell you all the details.  

Starting right now, and through Sunday, November 21st,  place an order totaling $45 or more (not including shipping) on my website for anything you'd like, and you will automatically receive a Glad Tidings kit with your order!!  Nothing to add to your cart.  I'll take care of it all on my end.  

My Glad Tidings 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 22nd.  After that, it will be available for a nominal fee.  So, get it while it's FREE!  Click here for the Glad Tidings pattern.

The Glad Tidings Sew-along begins Friday, December 3rd right here on my blog.  Be sure to sew-along with me.  We will motivate one another to get this little cutie pieced.  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.

Let me show you all of the new quilting goodies you can choose from at Heartspun Quilts!
Prairie Dry Goods is available in yardage, Fat Quarter bundles and 10 x 10 precuts.  How can you not have them all to play with???  Personally, I can't get enough of this collection.
Cheddar & Coal yardage is also available.....
....and many new color bank bundles like this one in browns....
....and this one in shades of yellow to gold.....
.....and this one is shades of pink!  It's been a very, very long time since I've had a pink color bank.

There's a lot to choose from with fabric, patterns, books and notions.  I can't wait to get started making Glad Tidings!  You, too?  Click here to shop.

Thank you all for your continued support of my little company.  I just don't know where I would be without you!  The free pattern and free quilt kit is my Thank You gift for your support.  I know you have a lot of choices when shopping for quilting goodies, and I appreciate you more than you know!  

Keep your needle busy and your heart content.  Be well....

Decorating With Quilts Idea

 Awhile ago, I was rummaging around an antique shop and found...

....this old towel hanger.  Hhmmm.....I know just what to do with this!

A new coat of paint....

....a drill and two screws.

And, Voila!  I have a tiny quilt crane to display a favorite quilt.

If I had just the right corner, I could display two quilts.  I love it, and hope it sparks inspiration for you.  You never know what you'll find when hunting antiques!

Fat quarter bundles of Cheddar & Coal are now available!!  

Click here to order one before they're gone.

In The Studio This Week....there's a lot going on but not much new to report.  Working on shipping orders, planning events for next year, getting some design ideas together for new fabrics and quilts, you know...the usual.  It's a slower time of year, and I'm welcoming it.  Once Thanksgiving is here, we all begin preparing for the Christmas holiday, so there's nothing slow about that!  I'll enjoy the lull while it lasts.

Keep your needle busy and your heart content....Be well!
