New Patterns for Prairie Paisley II

The new patterns are at the printer. Here are the covers of these 2 patterns (one is appliqué and one is piecing!)
They are being added to our website tonight - so if you don't see them at first - just give it awhile. Our genius web person works nights :) You should be able to find them here by Friday morning, for sure. They will start shipping next week.

I'm so excited for Masterpiece Mystery this Sunday (yes, it's been confirmed - I am an official Nerd). The Kate Atkinson books are being produced as a mini series!!!!

I Love her books - Case Histories, One Good Turn, When Will There Be Good News, and the new....Started Early, Took My Dog. These books feature the detective Jackson Brodie.
These "mysteries" take place in present day Edinburgh Scotland. I say "mystery" because, while there is a mystery or several mysteries solved, a whole lot more goes on. Atkinson is a wonderful writer and there is lyrical beauty, wit, romance, and much more. There is even a reoccurring girl detective character!!! Kind of a cross between Nancy Drew and Veronica Mars. How can you not love that! So, fellow stitchers who loves good mysteries - make sure to tune in on Sunday for the first installment. If it's half as good as the books - we are all in for a treat.

The 'string' box arrived today. The fabric is beautiful. Love the reds and blues and they will be perfect for QOV type quilt. Will be my first string project. Thank you so much. It was a wonderful gift.

The applique pattern is beautiful. I'm also a big, big fan of anything Masterpiece and look forward to Sunday nights. I've not read anything by Kate Atkinson but will check out my local library tomorrow. Go nerds!

Kristen said...

Oh I am going to have to make the applique one...I can't wait! :)

I love Masterpiece, too, and am looking forward to Sunday's presentation. My TV records the series no matter what is on so that I don't miss a thing. Guess I'm a nerd, too. I can live with it.

Your new patterns look wonderful. Thanks for the peak. I love Kate Atkinson and have read all of her books and thoroughly enjoyed them. I'll be looking forward to Sunday night.

Perhaps I'm not seeing it but what size quilts do the new patterns make? I could not see the sizes at the shop. Do I need to change my glasses? Hmmm. Lizzie's flowers look very pretty. AL from CA

Love the applique pattern. Don't know if I could do the applique but would certainly be willing to give it a try. The triangles are very nice too. Should we be surprised that something new would be just as fabulous as anything else from you in the past? Go Tigers ~ Go Brewers!!!

Jana said...

Love the applique pattern, and the blue triangles...my favorite color shades. Beautiful.

Carol Sc said...

I look forward to seeing these new patterns and the fabric. Watched the Jackson Brodie program --- the library will be the next stop! Disappointed that the Tigers didn't make it --- two bad calls certainly changed the game!...but am pleased with the season, on the whole.

I love to watch Masterpiece, but this weekend I had a guest in my home and was not able to view the first episode. Thanks for the heads up.
