A Prairie Journal - My first strike-offs arrive!

My first set of strike-offs for my upcoming new fabric line for Henry Glass & Co., "A Prairie Journal", arrived just a few hours ago! Take a look!

A Prairie Journal strike-offs

They are looking good! Be sure to ask your local quilt shop to carry the line, which ships this summer, June 2016. The small mock applique square is just a small portion of the panel which will look like this:

It was just about a year ago that I was painting the panel - the artists at Henry Glass did an amazing job of translating my original artwork for the fabric!

Below are pictured most of the prints in the line, and the image in the upper right hand corner is a quilt I designed for use with the panel. The pattern for the quilt and two more free to use patterns can be found on the Henry Glass & Co. website. Just click on the image and it will take you there!

I just love the rich brick reds and teal blues, and I couldn't be happier to have included a really great cheddar orange - a color that can be hard time to find and can be oh-so versatile in quilt making. The deep brown is another must have.

I have more to share about the A Prairie Journal line, but I'll save that for another day!

Until next time!



  1. I love them. I love the color and the designs

  2. It all looks so beautiful: I love those rich colors. So good to know that you have gotten the strike-offs: I guess I was a bit ahead of the curve because I was looking for your line the other day and couldn't figure out why I couldn't find it anywhere. :-D I'm looking forward to seeing it! Hugs, H in Healdsburg

    1. Haha! It's such a long process, I know. Thank you for looking out for it and I hope you find it EVERYWHERE in June, haha!

  3. I really love these fabrics. Hugs

  4. Your Prairie Journal Designs are just beautiful! I can't wait to see this fabric when it becomes available in the quilt shops! I love the rich, warm colors.
