Pat Sloan’s Teach Me to Applique

Look what the mail lady delivered to my door the other day — my own personal copy of Pat Sloan’s new book! It’s called Teach Me to Applique, and it has some darling and very happy projects in it. I quilted a few of the projects in the book, and when Pat sent me the […]

Sunbonnet Babies

I recently had the honor of quilting a very special quilt. I met Barb Owen last November, when she attended a retreat that I was also attending. She was there working feverishly on a Sunbonnet Babies quilt for her granddaughter, Kristi. Seems there’s a tradition in Barb’s family of all the girls receiving Sunbonnet Babies […]

Need’l Love’s Open House

Last Saturday, my sister and I drove down to the Ozarks to attend the Holiday Open House at Reneé Nanneman’s studio. Reneé is a fabric designer for Andover Fabrics, and has a LOT of patterns published as well. The Open House was wonderful. I could have hung out there all day! She had the entryway […]

This past weekend I got invited to join a fabulous group of art quilters at a retreat they were having. Even though I’m not a member of the group, I was allowed to join them anyway! The retreat was held at the Brunswick Lodging and Event Center, which is attached to Sew Sweet Quilt Shop. […]

She showed all the latest projects from her new book, and the quilts from all her new patterns […]

The Great Quilt Batting Relay

Posted on March 30, 2014 by prairiemoonquilts in Miscellaneous, People

In my extreme unorganization, I finally managed to break down into a full-blown panic attack yesterday afternoon. I had just pulled a quilt off the longarm, and was preparing to load the next one, when I realized I needed a particular type of batting. A type I didn’t think I had on hand. My friend, […]

Katy’s Paint Chip Challenge

When I showed you all my Paint Chip Challenge project a while back, I told you I’d also show you the one my sister made. She got a much easier color combination than I did — Cranberry Zing and Intense Teal — which just happens to be one of her favorite color combinations at this […]

15 Minutes of Play

I know I’ve mentioned before that my friend, Victoria, has a book out called “15 Minutes of Play”. Although the book has been out for over a year now, it’s one I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of. In fact, I make a point to read it through all over again every once in […]

Stephanie’s Vintage Stars

Posted on January 2, 2014 by prairiemoonquilts in Longarm Quilting, People

As many of you may already know (or if you’re new here, I’m gonna tell you) — I love working with vintage linens, old quilt pieces, vintage fabric, orphan blocks, discarded quilt tops, and all that type of stuff, and salvaging it and turning it into new projects (usually quilts). In fact, I have an […]
