Maple Sap and Turkey Tail

As the summer heat turns the milkweed to amber, I know that its just a month or two before the leaves will begin to turn to the gorgeous colors of fall.  One of my favorite colors in our Prairie Paint Fall Collection is Maple Sap. 

The color Maple Sap is like a rich, deep orange-ish, golden brown that can be found in the crisp leaves of fall or an heirloom pumpkin.  Whenever I am painting a fall design and need an orange, I reach for Maple Sap.  I do love our Pumpkin Patch color for brighter, vintage inspired oranges, but Maple Sap has a deep, richness that makes whatever I'm painting "orange" gorgeous. 

Below you can see the color prior to adding our Prairie Paints Finishing Wax.  Our Prairie Paints are a thick gel-chalk paint that was specially formulated to go on with one coat coverage and no-run applications.  It is perfect for painting interior furniture, cabinetry, accessories and yes, barn quilts! Our customers love this paint and we love sharing it with you.

With fall coming quickly, we are adding all of our fall patterns, kits, barn quilts and stitching kits to the site.  You will find several new patterns and kits that are perfect for the fall season.  Our Turkey Tail Barn Quilt is one of my favorite new designs and is stunning in so many color combinations, but my favorite is the one pictured below.  

Turkey Tail is available in a pattern, kits and as a framed-over barn quilt in four sizes.  The sample above is painted in Maple Sap, Hay Down, Cattle Drive Coffee, Homestead White, and Over the Pond.  

This week all of our Prairie Paint Collection is on sale.  No codes needed.  You will get 20% off on all orders over $30.00.  This includes our Finishing Wax and Gel-Chalk Powder that turns any paint into a thick, gorgeous chalk paint.  We hope you enjoy shopping in our Online Shop and find the colors you want to get your fall painting on!

American Denim Barn Quilt

American Denim is our newest barn quilt in the Tweetle Dee Collection.  It is one of my favorite barn quilts of all time, and was inspired by the chambray colors of old denim.  My love of denim is known by my family and friends as I wear old frayed denim in all colors, with patches and stitching most days. There is just something about the soft, shades of denim cotton that says home.

American Denim Barn Quilt

I choose to design this pattern with the richest red in our Prairie Paints Collection of gel-chalk paint.  Rooster Red was the red I choose because of it's bright and fresh red.  This newest barn quilt is framed in wide cedar to give it so much character.  The frame is painted in Old Crow and then sanded and painted a second time in Blue Willow.  The Blue Willow over the Old Crow gave both a rich, well loved look.  

American Denim Barn Quilt Pattern

For today's release of this barn quilt, we are also releasing it as a Ready-To-Paint Kit and PDF pattern too.  The commissioned barn quilts come in 33", 44" and 55".  All of our hand painted barn quilts are sealed for indoor or outdoor use.  They never fade or peel, only look better with each passing year.
