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!)

 



giveaway!

Thought that would get your attention.

I’m so excited to be able to work with Josephine Kimberling’s Just Dandy (Robert Kaufman) for one of my upcoming patterns. It’s beautiful! I mean, I love it in the pictures online, but seeing it and working with it in person is another thing entirely. It’s simply intoxicating. The prints play so nicely together, and there’s just enough unpredictability in the colors to make it really, truly unique. (That yellow? Swoon.)

So, to celebrate spring (yay!) and to reward you lovely people for being patient with my lack of attention around here, a fat quarter bundle, just for you.

I’m not above bribery.

To put your name in for this little pretty, leave a comment telling me what your favorite color (or colors!) are to create with. If you want more than one entry? Follow me on Twitter, like on facebook, subscribe to the newsletter, or the feed, tweet about it, blog about it. Technically, my friends, you could get in to win this thing 7 times. Oh, and if you’ll leave a separate comment for each entry (and link me to your post/tweet if you did those), that will help me make sure you get counted the right number of times. If you’re already following/friending/liking/subscribing/whatever, just tell me that in the comment. Totally still counts!

Winner will be chosen Friday, May 6th.

In other news, I’ll be listing some of my extra precut fabrics in the shop in the next day or two. Gotta do some spring cleaning in my studio. Seriously. The place is overflowing. Besides, I’m fairly sure you guys can always find a place for Bliss, Fandango, City Weekend, Simple Abundance…just to name a few. A couple of these lines haven’t been easy to find of late. You could get lucky! Keep your eyes peeled.

Next week? New patterns! I can hardly wait to show you the amazing work Natalia did on the quilting. Honestly? That girl is a machine quilting goddess.

Mwa! (And get those entries in!)

so. so. ready.

Not sure what is going on around here.

It’s cold.

And decidedly not spring-like.

If someone sees temperatures over 55 degrees, could you send them my way?

Pretty please?

Thanks.

(How’s spring coming along in your neck of the woods?)
