Pattern Showcase #2

This is one of those patterns that I seem to come back to again and again. It was directly inspired by a vintage version that fell in love with at first sight. I first introduced it as one of the feature patterns in our Fresh Vintage series several years ago. That issue sold out so quickly that we made it into a stand alone Fig Tree pattern soon after.,  Then recently I thought it was time to revise it once again, make it out of all new fabrics, new directions and diagrams and add a little something. So Prairie Sweets Revisited was born.   …. this brand new version made from a combination of Fresh Cottons and Breakfast at Tiffany's collections. …. I just love how these blocks are so simple, so graphic and so basic to construct. … a few subtle cream backgrounds add another dimension…
