Fresh from the Prairies


Hello everyone,

Thank you to everyone who stopped by the booth at the MQ Quilt show in Duluth.  We had such a great time.

June sure is a busy month.  We are packing again to head down to Chicago for the International Quilt Festival.  If you’re going to the show, hop on over to the JJ Stitches booth and say hello!  The show runs from June 21st-23rd, 10am-6pm on Friday and Saturday, and 10am-3pm on Sunday the 23rd.

As you remember, I promised I would share some of my favorite finds from Market and this book, Fresh from the Prairies, by Devon Lavigne and Sharon Smith, is certainly one of them.  I love the traditional blocks and I think you’ll find the detailed instructions to be quite helpful.  They playful, Western-themed pattern names are also quite fun (Cowboy Up…One Horse Town…).

If you’ve order my History Repeated fabric and haven’t made anything with it yet, I would recommend the star quilt pattern call Aurora– one of the 12 wonderful patterns in this book.  Whichever pattern you choose to start with, drop us a line on this blog.  We’d love to see your creations!

Until next time,
