Primitive Quilts and Projects Free Subscription

The summer issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects is arriving in stores and mailboxes if you have a subscription. I happen to have a small project in this issue.
This is Hen House. It makes a super cute table runner which is what I will use it for when it comes home. I love the goofy rooster, preening for the hens. It is wool and cotton so it goes together quickly.
The super generous ladies from the magazine are giving away 2 - 1 year subscriptions to the magazine. Leave me a comment telling me what you love about folk art and primitive style between now and 8pm central time on Sunday April 16. I will choose two winners at random to win subscriptions. This offer is open to residents of the US and Canada.
Have a fab. day!
Happy Quilting, Dawn

  1. I really love folk art because it takes you back to a much "simpler way of life". No digital equipment, fast pace and whistles and bells all over the place!
    PS: Your little "Hen House" runner is super cute too.
    Thanks! nettiecrain@live.com

  2. I think your little quilt is adorable. I love the whimsical rooster too, but I especially like the eggs and border treatment. I am mostly a fan of traditional/antique quilts, but I love Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine because so many of my quilting friends are contributors. I am already a subscriber so don't enter me in the drawing. Just wanted to tell you how much I like your quilt.

  3. I was so excited to see your project in the magazine, it is adorable! I love the primitive and folk art style of quilts because nothing is "perfect" about it. It just looks warm and cozy!

  4. I really enjoy how fun and flexible prim stitching is. It is beautiful, but it doesn't have to be perfect. Any variation from the pattern is a design choice and not a mistake.

  5. I love the "folk" look of wool...I am so wanting to learn to work in the wools & hand stitching. The magazine looks just wonderful!

  6. I love the appeal of folk art and primitive designs because of their adaptability. Just by changing the fabric choices you can create something that has a traditional/antique look or a very modern/contemporary look. The process of working by hand in a primitive folk art style is also very portable - I love that! Please pick me - carol at artlessfabrications dot com

  12. Congratulations on your publication. Your chicken runner is great, I have them in my kitchen. I like it as a wall banner too. Actually we have 8 hens. I like working with wool and the Primitive Quilts usually has a cute cat, chicken or lamb in them. I have made some of them for my bedroom shelves. I especially like prim or folk table toppers. Thanks for the chance of winning a subscription.

  20. I love the whimsiness of fold art. It's more like caricatures as opposed to exact likenesses and is fun. Thanks so much for sharing. I would love to win a subscription to this mag.

  23. It's the color that first draws me into folk art. Then it is the casual simplicity and quirkiness.

  24. I started quilting in Folk and primitive quilting in 1973. I think it is because the quilt becomes what people say is a "Still Life" painting. Something real and inviting for the eye. Thanks for the opportunity to win a subscription.

  28. I really like your Hen House runner. It would go nicely with the rooster theme I've got going on in my kitchen. Folk art and primitive designs complement the country style of decorating that I love.

  29. The colors and textures of Primitive folk art soothe my soul. I think reading the Little House on the Prarie series by Laura Ingalls Wilder in elementary school had a huge influence on me and I've been drawn to that simply lovely style ever since♥️
