Prairie Grass Patterns: Fall 2010 Debut Patterns are Here!

Inspired by pinwheels blowing on a hot summer day, Dancing in the Wind is the perfect scrappy quilt for cloud watching. Be sure to lay on it out in the open where you can feel the breeze!

The Long and Short of It:
62×85 (Twin)

Perfect for using up scraps or your favorite 2½” strip precut (35+).

Cover fabric: Spirit by Lila Tueller for Moda

With so many beautiful fabrics out there, I love that this pattern can show off so many at one time! Grammy’s Scrap Basket is easier than it looks, and works up in a hurry. A perfect quilt for a sweet new baby, featuring an optional first and middle or last name. Applique templates for both boy and girl shapes are included.

The Long and Short of It:
39×51 (Crib)

Perfect for using up scraps, or your favorite 1½” precuts. (40+)

Fabric is Simple Abundance by Bonnie and Camille for Moda

Perfect for staying warm and cozy on a fall evening, Little Lanterns is an innovative pattern that uses simple blocks to create a beautiful quilt that looks much more complex than it really is. Reminds me of little paper lanterns on the porch at our “Hooray It’s Fall!” party.

No Y seams.

The Long and Short of It:
53×67 (Throw)

A great way to use up stash fabrics, or your favorite 2½” strip precut.

Fabric is Cotton Blossoms by Bonnie and Camille for Moda

A fun and versatile twist on a classic argyle, this quilt uses ribbon for the stripes, instead of piecing. There are so many possibilities: Camouflage fabric with twill tape stripes, satins and velvets with sequin stripes, or some good old fashioned flannels with grosgrain. Any way you mix it, this one’s a knockout!

The Long and Short of It:
Finished Size: 59×72

Can be made with various yardage, or precut 10″ squares (20).

Fabric is Life’s a Hoot by Tammy Andersen for Adorn It Just Sew

Based on my popular pattern “Grammy’s Scrap Basket,” Scrap Basket {Remix} uses the same simple techniques to make a fun and flexible twin size quilt.

The Long and Short of It:
65×87 (Twin)

Fabric is Hooty Hoot Kangaroo by Doohickey Designs for Riley Blake.

Finally, finally, after over a year of work, work, WORKING, my patterns are nearly ready to see the light of day, and meet all of you! I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been doing, and to tell you all about the awesome fabric companies who “sponsored” my covers. Watch for spotlights on Moda, Michael Miller, Riley Blake, & Adorn It! Thanks so much to these companies for helping me have beautiful, current (FALL 2010!) fabric for my covers. In the next week or two, I’ll highlight the fabric lines that I used for my covers, so you can see some of these great fabrics, and the amazing companies who produce them!

But first, of course a few dates!
