Getting Ready for Heartland Heritage

Last November, we blogged about this Heartland Heritage Sampler Mystery BOM that has us incredibly excited. We are very grateful and honored that Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts agreed to design it for us, and pairing her designs with the new fabric from Kansas Troubles Quilters, Wildflower Serenade II, created a spectacularly gorgeous (say that ten times fast!) sampler quilt. This beauty sparkles with a rich dark red, almost burgundy, against a gold-tinged cream flecked with forest green, denim blue, soft black, and a dusky purple.

Absolutely breathtaking.

So thank you both, Pam and Lynne!

The reason we’re bringing it up again is because…………’s almost time to start!!!

Response has been overwhelming (has anyone perchance seen the ad in McCall’s or American P&Q??) and due to the popularity of the BOM, we’ve opened up more spots! If you’ve been eyeing this sparkling little gem, we’ve still got room.

Details, details…this 12-month BOM runs from late March 2009 to February 2010 and includes the pattern and fabric for the quilt top and binding. Backing is available separately. You’ll get super-clear and well-tested instructions for blocks that require NO applique, only traditional piecing. You will want some experience with half-square triangles, quarter-square triangles, flying geese and square-in-a-square construction. If you’ve got those basics down, you’ll love this program! There is a $4.99 sign-up fee and $16.99 monthly fee.

We are so, so ecstatic to offer this program. Please comment and let us know if you’ve signed up!


  1. I did see the add in my McCalls’ Quilting magazine! This is going to be such an incredibly beautiful quilt. If I was not already participating in three BOM’s locally and registered for your 2009 Mystery BOM, Heartland would be a ‘must do’. I just don’t dare add another into our budget right now. **heavy sigh**

  2. I recently received a charm pack of the Wildflower Serenade II fabrics that will be used in this BOM. Oh my!! They’re SO luscious!! I have signed up for this BOM and can hardly wait until it starts.

    I love all fabrics Kansas Troubles, and I love Pam Buda’s patterns – a winning combination, I say! Thanks FQS and Pam for making this one possible!!

  3. I am signed up for the BOM, and it was so exciting to read the recent comments. Do I have to do anything else or just wait for the material and pattern to come in March???? KW, WA state
