Prairie Sisters Farmhouse Fabric Tour

Friday, March 22, 2019

Good morning friends!  Today it's my turn to share some fun projects I made for the 
Prairie Sisters Farmhouse Fabric Tour!

Prairie Sisters is a new fabric line by Poppie Cotton and is available in stores now.

I love the soft colors, the variety of prints and the farmhouse feel of this line!
It was nice working with a softer palette than I'm used to.  
I find that I'm craving the softer, calmer colors these days!

I decided to try out this pattern that I've had my eye on for quite some time!
It's called Tilted Spools by Cyndi Walker.  It can be found in Pretty Patchwork Quilts by Cyndi Walker or The Big Book of One-Block Quilts by The Patchwork Place.

I used a small assortment of low-volume fabrics for the background (to give it a scrappy feel) and chose one of my all-time favorite all over quilting designs - the classic orange peel.

This quilt measures 48 1/2" x 64 1/2" finished.

During the cutting process of Tilted Spools, I realized that I made a mistake and cut a bunch of 4 1/2" squares at the wrong size!  Do you ever do that?  Well, luckily I had enough fabric left over to cut the correct size squares.  So I set the 4 1/2" squares aside and decided I would just make another quilt out of those!

I made a simple patchwork quilt, slightly smaller, that coordinates with the first!  It measures 
39 1/2" x 47 1/2" finished.  Cathy Barney quilted this one as well, except this time with loops and flowers.

I really love how both of the quilts turned out.  Prairie Sisters has a scrappy feel because of the florals, gingham, geometric prints, farm animals and a few pops of colors.  And I am a "scrappy girl" through and through so I am a big fan!  It was a joy to work with these new, unique fabrics.  

These quilts are listed for sale in my Etsy Shop.  
You can buy just one or both to coordinate with each other.
