Millie's Cardinal Barn Quilt

Every morning we would climb onto Grandma's couch that slide up to the table in front of the window to look out for the birds that visited the feeders she and my Grandpa tended to.  On the breakfast table was a pair of binoculars and a bird identification book.  Maybe they helped us look for birds to keep us little one's busy, but we loved the time looking for one very special bird, the Cardinal.  

She loved those bright red birds, especially against the white snow that drifted on the hills around the farm.  We could see them everywhere when snow fell.  Here is the west I don't see them in the wild, just the ones that have been gifted to me from her collection, and a few my sweetheart has given me to keep the tradition alive.  During the summer her ceramic Cardinal sits in my birdbath and it feels like she loved seeing it too.  

Inspired by my Grandma, I have designed Millie's Cardinal Barn Quilt in the style of our Little Pieces Collection of barn quilts.  We had so much fun adding the half-squares as pines and all the beautiful reds in the Prairie Collection to give each triangle dimension and life. 

This barn quilt has been added to Our Shop today.  We hope you love it as much as I do.  If my family in NY sees this is coming your way.  Mille's Cardinal belongs there and on the barns of all who loved this most beautiful bird.

Farm and Hive Workshop

Hi all!  We are right in the middle of summer and loving all of the long sunny days, with flowers growing and bees a buzzing.  One of my favorite "bee friends" has invited us to come to her new farm in Idaho to teach a two day workshop in October.  Farm and Hive  is where we will be on October 13th and 14th and we can't wait to share the details with you.  

We have been blessed to know Susie Goodspeed for many years.  We met at an event in Midway, Utah where she was selling her honey and beeswax products and we were selling our barn quilts.  We were across the isle from each other and in between customer visits, we got to know each other.  Since then we have had several workshops together painting barn quilts and loving her warm and happy slice of heaven.  Her farm doors are always open to all and you leave feeling so positive about life.  I just love her!

Last year, she and her husband Tyler sold their Utah farm and moved to Inkom, Idaho to live out a much larger dream.  Her farm is growing, with babies of all kinds and lots of products that are handmade by her and her family.  Her candles and ornaments have been my favorite gifts to share.  

One of the things we share is a love of painting barn quilts.  It's the time away from chores and family needs, a moment to think, create and share together that brings us together.  So, we are beyond excited to be driving our Tweetle Dee Mae Classroom up to Susie's farm for a two day workshop in October. 

The workshop will begin with an embroidery workshop where we will learn the basic embroidery stitches while making our My Soul Belongs to Wildflowers denim sampler while sampling honey and cider.  

The next day we will gather at the farm for our How to Paint a Barn Quilt Workshop where you get to choose from our barn quilt pattern collection to paint your own barn quilt, using our gorgeous Prairie Paints.  We will enjoy a farm lunch together and end the day finishing your barn quilt with our special finishing techniques that will give you a beautiful barn quilt to take home and love for years to come.

To register go to Our Shop and sign up.  There are options to attend the entire two days or just one.  We hope you can make it for both and enjoy two whole days of celebrating, dreaming and creating together.  

For questions regarding this event please email me at

Pink Patriot Barn Quilt

Happy 4th of July!  We hope you are having a wonderful summer full of sun, water and lots of flowers.  In honor of the holiday we are releasing our newest barn quilt, the Pink Patriot.  We wanted to design a quilt and barn quilt this year with the soft color of pink in it to pay tribute to the hard working, and hopeful women who who have made sacrifices on behalf of our country.  

There are numerous stories of women in active service away from their loved ones, and women at home in service working to support their loved ones and their country.  I am thankful for their service and hope in making a difference. 

This Pink Patriot Barn Quilt is available for orders today, with the pattern releasing this week.  The Prairie Paint colors in this barn quilt are set off by the subtle pink in Peach Blossom.  One of my favorite pinks.  

You can watch our IG stories for the progress on the fabric quilt as well.  We have a discount code of PinkPatriot this week.  Use it to get 25% off on all orders.  We wish you and yours a wonderful celebration.
