Welcome to laid-back quilting – with Layered Patchwork (+ fabric giveaway!)

Make quick quilts and love them lots: that’s living the prairie life!

Prairie Life

With Lynne Hagmeier’s new book, Prairie Life, you can eliminate some common pitfalls of conventional piecing, including tricky points, mismatched seams, and bulky seam allowances. How? Easy—with Lynne’s Layered Patchwork technique! Cutting shapes and topstitching them to a base fabric will help you get to the finish line faster. Simplify blocks that include triangles and even curved pieces like Orange Peels. Projects hold up wonderfully wash after wash.

From Prairie Life

Here’s what Lynne says about the Layered Patchwork look in her introduction to Prairie Life:

Layered Patchwork Churn Dash“Layered Patchwork simplifies piecing and adds a three-dimensional primitive look that I love, without any unsightly raveling. From a distance, a Layered Patchwork quilt looks like any traditionally pieced quilt. Up close, you see the topstitched edges of the pieces and can’t help but run your fingers across the softly frayed surface. The finished quilt has a lovely texture that only gets softer and cozier with each washing.”

Prefer traditional patchwork? You’ll find plenty of projects for those methods too! From gorgeous quilts to runners and pillows, you can infuse your home and hearth with the prairie-life look, no matter which sewing methods you like to use.

We asked Lynne (of Kansas Troubles Quilters fame) to answer a few pressing questions we had about her quilting life—read her answers below!


Lynne HagmeierStitch This!: Your latest book is simply gorgeous! What inspired you to write Prairie Life?

Lynne: Prairie Life is a collection of projects I’d been wanting to make for myself, some inspired by my first book, Cozy Quilts & Comforts. I also like having options for traditional piecing and Layered Patchwork in the instructions.

ST!: How did you come up with your clever Layered Patchwork technique?

Lynne: I was asked to teach on a quilting cruise and needed a quilt that was precut. The simplest thing to do with a Layer Cake and Charm pack? Layer, topstitch, slice, and sew a block. So easy!

ST!: Tell us about where the gorgeous photos from your book were taken.

Lynne: Prairie Life was beautifully photographed by Adam Albright, with the creative vision of Jennifer Keltner of Martingale, at our home in the country outside Bennington, Kansas. I was delighted with the way Jennifer could see my collections of antiques and old junk with a fresh eye, blending them perfectly with my quilts and projects. (The red barn on the cover is pretty much held together with baling wire and duct tape!)

ST!: What’s your designing process like—patterns or fabrics first? Ideas on paper or on a computer?

Lynne: My brain works best doodling quilt blocks on graph paper first, then I transfer the design to the computer and import fabric swatches to see how the design will look. Usually, the fabric inspires the quilts. Once I’ve designed a new fabric line, I have months to ponder what projects to make while the mill is creating the fabric. But it’s not unusual to totally shift gears and change my plan after seeing the fabric in person.

ST!: What’s the most important part of the designing process for you, and what’s the most fun?

Lynne: The most important part of the design process for me is making sure what I see in my head translates accurately onto the pages of the instructions. The most fun is playing with new fabric!

ST!: What’s inspiring you right now?

Lynne: Next year is my 20th anniversary of designing fabric for Moda. I’m focused now on a 20-block block-of-the-month king-size quilt that includes stories about my design and quilting journey over the past 20 years.

ST!: What’s on your sewing table right now?

Lynne: I’m piecing a new charm quilt for Quilt Market with 288 half-square triangles. I’ve been piecing and trimming as I’ve been working on other projects.

ST!: As a quilter, what technique do you still want to learn?

Lynne: I’d like to spend more time hand stitching and learning decorative stitches. I need to take the time to prepare a project so it’s ready when I have a minute to relax and stitch.

ST!: What’s your #1 tip for beginning quilters?

Lynne: Practice a ¼" seam allowance until it’s second nature. The number-one problem for quilters in my workshops is not having consistent seam allowances. It’s vital so all of the pieces come together correctly.

  • I love trying new techniques and do so as often as possible. It’s the only way to grow as a quilter.

    —DebrafromMD on May 17, 2019
  • I usually jump in with both feet. And try not to let anything new scare me from trying it.

    —Sybilla Steenport on May 17, 2019

    —Bonita Harms on May 17, 2019
  • I try new techniques all the time. It’s the only way to find what works best. I love Lynn’s work and I’m a huge Kansas Troubles fan! Prairie Life is complete eye candy and I can’t wait to start making the projects.

    —CHRISTINE E on May 17, 2019
  • I like traditional piecing, but when something new comes out that seems interesting, I like to try it.

    —Sharon on May 17, 2019
  • I am fairly new to quilting so it seems that everything I do is trying a new technique! I would say the latest new attempt, however, is trying to do a successful mitered corner for my binding.

    —Louise on May 17, 2019
  • Neat patterns. Now to just get started.
    I like traditional piecing, but trying new techniques is fun too.
    I’m not into wonky or really modern patterns.

    —nancy seitz on May 17, 2019
  • I absolutely love Lynne’s taste. I watch her when I find her on the internet. I try new techniques at least 6 times a year. I teach quilting and most often hear "That’s now the kind of quilt I make." If you know other techniques you can use fabric in all forms and it is fun. Some of the stuff I didn’t think I would like, I did.

    If I could only win one of these, this is the one I would love to have. Please consider me. I love your books. Thanks 🙂

    —Kay on May 17, 2019
  • I try a new-to-me techinque each time I complete a large quilt and prior to starting a new quilt project. This gives me a creativity break and learning something I may use in the future.

    —Martha O. on May 17, 2019
  • I have never really tried new techinques, I plan on doing it now since I just got a new to me sewing machine that has a lot more options on it! Nice giveaway!

    —Sunnie on May 17, 2019

  • What beautiful quilts! New settings for quilting standards make things seem so new. We all get stuck in a rut and do our same favorite blocks and settings and I am worse than most quilters I know. I love how you have tweaked each and made it your own. I need to do the same. Thank you for the opportunity to enter the contest for book AND fabric. I don’t try new things near enough and now I can!

    —Janet Reynolds on May 17, 2019
  • I love trying new ways of doing things. Each teacher has their way of doing things and one of them may just make your own work click, and way more fun. Always looking for new ways to do old things. Thank you

Sewing is my passion and once I entered the Project Linus and won a computerized Janome from our local quilt shop and there is hardly a day that goes by that I sit and sew even for just a few minutes. I always have alot of unfinished projects so I am really trying to get those done. thank you

    —Jan on May 17, 2019
  • I love the simplicity of tradional country quilts and the romance of prairie life. Flannel makes any quilt comfy and that’s what I strive to achieve. I mostly quilt for charity and family but this one would be for me!

    Barbara Austin on May 17, 2019
  • I try new techniques all the time. I have seen the Layered Fabric technique before, but the quilts really shine in the Kansas Troubles fabrics and getting to the finish faster is HUGE!!! I would love to receive the book and the fabrics together!

    —Susan M Putman on May 17, 2019
  • I’m always open to learning!! I live approximately two miles from a wonderful quilt shop which offers a wide variety of classes, retreats and an annual quiltfest! So, I want to know it all!!!

  • I like trying new techniques – I’m still learning. I love your book – it looks like a lot of fun.

    —Judy on May 17, 2019
  • I love traditional quilting and also love trying some modern quilting too. As I learn more ways to make half square triangles, I find that pinning is the key element to keeping my seams lined up correctly. I love precision. Many new rulers help too!

    —Bernie Farris on May 17, 2019
  • I’m willing to try new techniques but usually after I’ve seen an example of it done. Someone brings show and tell and I discover something new and I’m excited to give it a try.

    —Rita Nichols on May 17, 2019
  • I love trying new techniques and find Lynne’s Layered Patchwork technique very intriguing. Would love to try it out on a small scale, maybe a table runner.

    —Sandra on May 17, 2019

    —Sheila Castle on May 17, 2019
  • I love traditional piecing, but there is nothing wrong with learning something new.

    —Janice Mc Laren on May 17, 2019

    —Donna McTague on May 17, 2019
  • I always like trying new techniques that will save time. I work full time and have a busy family; like many others,so anything that will allow me to work on my quilt piecing is a bonus. Sewing quilts helps my creative juices and gives me peace. 🙂

    —Gloria Cotten on May 17, 2019
  • I like traditional piecing, but I also try to challenge myself with each new project. It would be great to have Lynn’s new book.

    —Diane H on May 17, 2019
  • I am always a little hesitant to tackle a new method…however when I see something I really want to try and there are clear instructions to help me get started…look out! Thanks Lynn for all you do and for sharing your talent! I love your fabric designs and patterns. melinda

    —Lisa on May 17, 2019
  • I absolutely love Lynne’s fabric line and her simplistic approach to quilting. I learned of her after my daughter moved to Kansas. I have yet to go to her shop but I’ll get there some day. It’s a ways to go from Anchorage, AK.

    —Elizabeth Kretschmer on May 17, 2019

    —Rosalind Gutierrez on May 17, 2019
  • I do enjoy learning new things, challenging my brain is rewarding and healthy!! Lynne is the very reason I started quilting. I always gravitate towards her fabric colors and patterns, they are the first places I go when visiting quilt shops!! Maybe because I love antiques and grew up on a farm, or that you can mix the old in with the new when making your house a home. Sadly where I live the quilt shops are not carrying this line of fabrics, guess we better plan a road trip some day!!

    Carrie on May 17, 2019
  • I will try any new technique at least once to see if it works better for me! I just learned this fabulous new way to make hunter’s stars where the points come out perfect EVERY time. And it was nothing I would have imagined on my own. If I did things the same old way every time I wouldn’t be learning or experimenting. What fun would that be!!!

    —Cindy McVey on May 17, 2019
  • I try new quilting techniques as they arise in the projects I chose! All good and a great way to expand my experiences with quilting!

    —Alma Martin on May 17, 2019

    —Diane Graf on May 17, 2019

    Ready for any help.
    This reminds me of my parents who were

    My Grandfather would sing Home On The
    Range to us!
    This book brings many memories!
    Thank you,

    —Juanna Barnes on May 17, 2019

    —Cynthia Ross on May 17, 2019
  • I like traditional piecing, but trying new techniques is fun too. Have not yet tried Lynne’s technique but am definitely going to try it now that I have watched the video and have at least a basic understanding of what it is.

    There isn’t one pattern in ‘Prairie Life’ that I would NOT want to make. They are gorgeous, just as are Lynne’s fabric lines. Have made only two flannel quilts and have been wanting to make another. Layered patchwork seems to be an ideal way to do that.

    —Sandy-luvmylogcabins-Houser on May 17, 2019

    —Anne Sommerville on May 17, 2019

    Many of my Martingale books have new techniques.

    —Janet T on May 17, 2019
  • I love trying new quilting methods! I saw the layered patchwork method and thought, "What a great idea! Eliminates bulk, the points can be matched, and, if ever needed, you could repair the issue so much more easily." I purchased both of Lynne’s books and am awaiting their arrival. Can’t wait to get to it! Oh, and in some cases, what a great way to use up those cute little mini charm squares!

    —Jane Sprague on May 17, 2019

    —JennyH on May 17, 2019
  • I like traditional piecing, but imagine what our quilting would look like today if early quilters hadn’t been willing to try new things – like rotary cutters! If it makes sense to me, especially if it will improve my quilting, I’m game for almost anything.

  • I usually stick to the same base techniques, but try to "sneak in" one new thing on every quilt…maybe a single piece of needle turned applique, or even a curved pieced block pieced into the backing as a label. I don’t want to get bored with the same stuff all the time, but I also don’t want to bite off more than I can chew at once…like in all things: MODERATION.

    Sandra L. Bonow on May 17, 2019
  • I’m usually a traditional piecer, but taking a class to learn an interesting new technique is always an eye opener. After you get the gist of the technique you sit, contemplating how the first person figured it out… what dream or nightmare spawned that thought process.

    Have a great weekend, & thank you for giving us such fun sneak-peaks into the new books and fabric world.

The first tine I did paper piecing I said I would never do that again, but when I found a pattern that I liked that used paper piecing it was either do it or not have the project. It was frustrating to me but after much sewing and ripping I have a new appreciation for the technique and now will not shy away from it

And I love her colors and fabric designs. This would be a dream package to win!

  • I often am too afraid to try new things so I wait until my quilt group has a workshop and I have help around. Still, I’m willing to give anything a try!

  • I prefer traditional piecing, but enjoy trying new techniques. After all, you never know what technique may become a new favorite!

  • I really enjoy traditional piecing. Some of the new techniques I see seem to try to make things faster by doing things that leave the edges of a block on the bias, rather than the straight of grain. I’m not interested in that!
