Prairie Grass Patterns



They’re Here: New Patterns Spring 2011


Size options, a table topper, a bag, and a baby playmat? My my, branching out.

I love them all, but seriously? That Russian Rubix is to DIE for up close and in real life–and that Josephine Kimberling knows how to make some gorgeous fabric. (I feel like I’m picking a favorite child.)

Get them while they’re hot. First 10 orders get a free surprise with their order, cause I love you guys.

They’re in the shop.

Spotlights on each pattern after market (wish me luck).

Do you love them as much as I do?

PS: If you’re coming to market, come see me in booth #2243!

 

 



lucky duck (aka winner)

I’ve been in a cave for the last 2 weeks. Well, that’s how it feels, anyway. I’ve been finalizing things for quilt market, and believe me when I tell you that as a first timer exhibiting, I’m in WAY over my head. Seriously, there are so many things I had never considered. Makes me respect the people who do this twice a year so. much. more. It’s been a learning process, for sure.

It’s been fun, too, though. I’ve had a great time helping my mom, who is new to quilting, learn how to make a simple project from one of the new patterns.

What’s that?

Oh! You want to see the new patterns?

I know, I know, I told you’d I’d start showing off (last) Monday.

Remember how I said I was in over my head?

Yeah. Hence the no posting this week.

Next week? New patterns galore. (I mean it this time.)

Thanks for all the love and encouragement, guys.

Makes all this cave dwelling worth it.

Mwa!

PS: The winner of the awesome Just Dandy bundle is Sharon, who said

Right now I am crazy for any browns and blues or pinks. I love the browns and all the fabric in this line.

Congratulations! Can’t wait to see what you do with it! Email me with your address at april@prairiegrasspatterns.com (And if you’re looking for a project to use it on, I happen to know a beautiful throw can be made using it. Check back on Monday!)

 



Sneak Peeks & Pattern Updates

Let’s talk patterns.

I’m up to my neck in writing the new ones, and I’m so excited to share them with you in just a few more weeks. I’ve had fun this time around taking your suggestions into consideration, and I have a list a mile long of even more requests I couldn’t get to this go-round. It’s really fun to have so many projects to choose from–and more reasons to buy fabric!

In other news, I’ve finally got my Pattern Update page posted. There are yardage updates for He Zigs She Zags and Scrap Basket {remix}, so if you have purchased either of those patterns, you’ll want to check it out. Also, if you’re a shop owner, there are printable inserts you can slip into the back cover of the patterns you already have in your shop.  That should make things easier.

Speaking of carrying Prairie Grass Patterns in your shop, if you already do, would you comment and let me know? (And thanks for carrying them, too!) I’m compiling page with a list of places to buy them, and I’d love to include you.

You guys are the best–thanks for all the kind words and support as I work through my first-timer-ness.

P.S. Next stop? Busting out the colored pencils. Stay tuned.



good for the soul

I can’t be the only person who does this.

There’s just something about seeing those pretty little fat quarters all stacked up in color order. Good for the soul, and all that.

Another thing that’s good for the soul?

Fandango.

 

 

And of course, while we’re talking about fabrics, here’s some I haven’t found a worthy enough project to cut into yet.

 

 

I’m a sucker for Hope Valley. It’s getting to be increasingly more expensive to feed my addiction, seeing as it’s out of print.

Another good thing? Prairie Grass Patterns is being featured over at Simply Utah today, and I think you may just be able to find a one day special discount code…but you’ll have to go check it out for yourself. I’ll tell you though, if you’ve been wanting to pick up a few (or all *wink wink*) of my patterns, today is definitely the day to do it.

And now for one bad thing. Broken nice camera. Battery dead on point and shoot. Ya’ll are getting iPhone pix. Sorry friends. It’s not very fun for me either.

I guess I’ll just have to go rearrange some fat quarters.
