Little Cabin on the Prairie

Happy March friends.   We have been waiting for this day for quite awhile now,  so excited to share the Moonbeams & Cabin Dreams Block of the Month's first block!  This collection was inspired by my Great Great Grandparent's stories on the plains of the Midwest as they traveled west on the Oregon Trail, served as missionaries to the homesteaders on the plains, and lived their lives in faith and love.


Little Cabin on the Prairie Barn Quilt

I learned their stories from my Grandmother and research into the books and stories published telling their story.  If you didn't know that about me, I too love family history and research.  So, as we travel to workshops and classes we stop along the way and become detectives to learn even more than we could have through the passed on and down stories.  
Their story touched my heart deeply and I felt a deep connection to them.  The tributes recorded of their service to Prairie Homesteaders and Native Americans have inspired me to give more of myself.  

My hope in designing these blocks is that each one and the accompanying story will touch your heart as well.  The first block is the Little Cabin on the Prairie.  It is designed to look like the traditional cabin quilt block, but the inset square is a very fancy Log Cabin quilt block with loads of color!  (Of course, it was designed by me.)  It is a simple pattern to paint and even more to love.

Moonbeams & Cabin Dreams Barn Quilt Collection

We are offering this block as a Ready-To-Hang and Ready-To-Paint barn quilt.  To order the block already painted and sealed for indoor or outdoor use, go to The Shop and place you order.  Optional frame available too!

The Ready-To-Paint Kit comes with a 24" ready to paint barn quilt board, a pattern, instruction, color guide, and the story of the block!  We will be posting a video tutorial on the You Tube Channel for each block where you can watch how to draw and paint the blocks in the collection.


I hope you fall in love with these colorful story blocks.  Even if you choose to paint a few of them and not the entire collection, each and every block is a fabulous barn quilt to enjoy.  Through Monday we have our 30% sale!  Use Code NEWSLETTERFRIENDS to save big on this Little Cabin on the Prairie.
