I just loving working with Poppie Cottons!!! These Prairie Sisters Fabric are so pretty and have a great hand. They were just so fun to sew with! :) When I first saw the line, I just fell in love. The beautiful prints and colors just have such a rich feeling of country goodness. They really do transport you to a Prairie and make you want to just slow everything down and enjoy the moment of sewing. Which is exactly what I did.
As I mentioned, when designing thie quilt, I wanted it to to have a rich classic feel, just like the fabric. I loved the idea of taking the classic Granny Square Center and changing it up a bit. So I played with the layout, making it a single Granny Square, and then adding a "border" to the block to create the double X shape :) And I just love it. And that is also where the Decades Past name came from. I figured if X is a Decade, and these fabrics take me back to times of slower living as I mentioned . . . well Decades Past :)
And I am excited to say, that I just loved this design so much, that Decades Past will become the next pattern in my Happy Quilting Pattern line!!!! I have plans to make it in 4 size options and two block sizes. It is going to be so awesome. (and when it is released, it will be on sale, just sayin :)
Have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!
