Settler’s Pride and Primitive Quilts

You are going to be so sick of this quilt…but…I finished the fourth block to Settler’s Pride last night…and I’m loving it!P1130056

Zooming in for a close-up….


I had to step on our foot stool to get this shot of all four blocks.  Five more blocks to go!!


Each block is big…about 18” in size…


If you can stand it, stay tuned for block 5…


Did you know that in just a few days “Primitive Quilts and Projects” will hit the News Stands!   This is a new magazine featuring primitive style quilts and projects.  Each issue will feature up to 15 projects and is published quarterly.

  1. I subscribed to the magazine a long time ago, and CAN NOT WAIT to get the first issue. And, I love the blocks you are making - so warm and yummy! Keep making and keep showing them to us.

  2. sick? no way. :) It will be interesting watching the quilt grow. You are doing a great job!

  3. Keep posting your progress please - it's stunning, P.

    I can't wait to get my first issue of the magazine. :-)

  4. I absolutely love how the sunflower came out, as the rest of the work your doing on the quilt, am so looking forward to seeing each and every block!
    Be safe in your travels.

  5. You are getting on great with your blocks-love seeing them, so keep them comin!

    That just might have to be my next wool project (after the 2 'Heart to Hand' ones I have in progress!)

    Shazy x

  6. Great progress Paulette, block 5 on Wednesday? I put my name in for the giveaway of the Primitive Quilts magazine so thanks for the heads up.

  7. Can't wait to see the first issue. I even ordered a lot more to have in my vending booth. Best idea in a long time!! A magazine for us proves there are more of us out there!

  8. I am not going to get tired of seeing your Settler's Pride. Keep those blocks coming!

    I paid for my subscription to the magazine recently and am looking forward to the first issue. For a prim lover, to have a magazine devoted to that style of projects is a big bonus for me.

  9. I can't resist that one, had to get it.
    All my favorite designers in one place.
