I started sewing for my little 4" troll doll when I was in the 4th grade and it's been non stop ever since! Since having children, I have always had a sewing business allowing me to stay home with them. It has led me to my current design business, Traditional Primitives from Missie Carpenter. You can visit my web store to see what type of sewing I love to do at www.traditionalprimitives.com. I love to design patterns for Cotton Applique Quilts, Wool Applique Quilts, Wool and Cotton Quilts, Punchneedle, Totes and More! As I picture myself, I can not imagine life without a needle in my hand...View all patterns by designer (1) »
This quilt is a celebration of living in the Midwest. I have learned so much about country life over the years with my husband who works in the agriculture industry. This quilt has a few soy beans, corn, wheat and sunflowers representing some of the crops found in the Midwest. It has a heart representing love, a home representing family, a church, flag and a bald eagle representing religion and love of our country. It also has a quilt store of course! The windmill farms we see now are so unique along with the beautiful barns and silos with barn quilts and beautiful tiles. I hope you will find some connections with this quilt as well!
The pattern includes two unique methods for English Paper Piecing with time saving techniques. The applique can be done by hand or machine. The quilt is not as hard as it looks...it's all pieces here and there, just like any other quilt! You can read about the EPP methods on my blogs. I would be happy to answer any questions you have.
