Prairie Patterns

Coriander Quilts

Well, it has been a whirlwind of a week.  I am back from Quilt Market and I think I would be happy to do it all over again next week.  What fun that was!  It was such a treat to share Prairie with all of the people attending.  I was so nervous about attending market and sharing not only my first fabric line but also launching my pattern line, Coriander Quilts.  But, I don’t know what I was worried about.  My husband Ryan said, “you are going to hang out with a bunch of quilters…what could you possibly be worried about?”  And he was totally right–it was such a blast!

 And today, I am excited to share my Prairie patterns with all of you.  Warning, there are a lot of pictures!

First up is Dashing:

Dashing Quilt

Dashing is a Fat Eighth friendly quilt with a fun spin on two traditional quilt blocks–a churn dash block and a star block.

Dashing Quilting

Abby of Latimer Lane Quilting quilted this quilt for me.  I love the texture it gives the quilt.  This is the 2nd time Abby has used this pattern on a quilt for me and I always love the result.

I had some visitors during my photo taking–such a pretty place to take some photos.


I decided to launch my pattern company under a new name–something different than Little Miss Shabby.  So, you will be seeing all of my patterns under the name “Coriander Quilts”–I thought it was too perfect not to use.  All of my patterns are full color booklet style patterns with easy to follow instructions and lots of diagrams for cutting, piecing, & pressing.

Next up is Floret.  Floret requires a layer cake plus two charm packs or six charm packs if you want to scrap it up.

The blocks in Floret are nice, over-sized blocks and the quilt comes together quickly.

Floret Quilting

Abby quilted Floret for me as well, using a fun little loopy pattern.

Prairie includes a a variety of stripes which I love using for bindings.  In fact, I used a stripe for all of my Prairie quilt bindings except for one.  You just can’t go wrong with a great striped binding.

And next is Gingersnap.

Gingersnap Quilt

This is the quilt that many of you have been oohing and ahhing over the hand quilting that my mom did.  She banged out the hand quilting on this quilt in just a couple days.  There is no way that I would have been able to hand quilt this in time for market!  Thanks Mom! =)

The quilting is done using 8 wt. Perle Cotton (mostly Presencia Finca).  I love the texture and pop using this weight of thread always provides.

Gingersnap Quilting

This is the only quilt without a striped binding.  You really can’t go wrong with a polka dot either. =)

Gingersnap requires just 2 charm packs plus solid yardage to complete the quilt top.

It is such a fun quilt to make!

Moving onto Idyllic.  This quilt might be my favorite quilt…I think I have probably said that about all of these quilts at one time or another.


I just love this one!  Idyllic is Fat Eighth friendly and I just adore how it turned out.  This quilt is actually the most simple of all the quilts to piece.  Can you believe that!–it’s always great to piece a quilt that looks trickier than it is.

Idyllic Quilting

Abby quilted this one for me also.  This quilting design perfectly compliments the quilt.  Do you see that bit of yellow peeking out up there?  The Idyllic pattern features both a print and a solid version of the quilt.

Yellow Idyllic Quilt

I have wanted a yellow and white quilt for so long!  I was very excited to incorporate it into this pattern so I had an excuse to make one.

Idyllic Yellow Quilting

Natalia of Piece & Quilt custom quilted this quilt for me.  Didn’t she do a lovely job?  I’m so excited about this quilt.

Of course there must be minis.


I decided to incorporate 3 mini quilts into one quilt pattern.  So all 3 of these mini quilts can be found in the Sweetness pattern.

There is a Floret Mini:

Mini Floret

I opted to hand quilt this one.  I can complete a small hand quilting project quickly!  In fact, if you are new to hand quilting, mini quilts are a great way to dip your toes in the water.

There is also a Gingersnap Mini:

Look how cute it is!

And lastly an Idyllic Mini:

Mini Idyllic

Again, this little Idyllic Mini was probably the most simple of the minis to piece.

Idyllic Mini

The minis all use either one or two mini charm packs (the 2.5″ mini ones) plus a bit of solid yardage.  And, the patterns for all 3 are found in the Sweetness pattern.

As of right now, PAPER copies of all of the patterns are available in my Etsy Shop.  I will also have PDF versions at some point.  I tried uploading them without success today–my Internet service in my little Amish town was just not cutting it today!  I’ll get them added into my shop as soon as I can.

I’ll be back soon with more pictures of Prairie!  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  • I went to your Etsy page, but all I saw was paper patterns… No PDF patterns for us impatient quilters? ::grins::

    • I know Karen!–I’ve been trying for hours today to get the PDF’s listed but they just don’t want to upload. I wanted to get the paper ones up as soon as I could ’cause I know some prefer that. I’ll keep trying on the PDF’s to get them up as soon as I can.

  • It was so nice having you in the Moda designer row. Love your patterns. Can’t wait to make some of them!


    • Thank you so much Lissa!–I really enjoyed being there.

  • Corey, I so wanted to meet you! I saw these beautiful quilts at Market but every time I went by your spot in the Moda booth you weren’t there. Bad timing on my part – we were vending in a booth just down the row from you!

    Anyway, I can testify that these quilts are even more charming in person than shown here. I love every single one of them! Are you wholesaling them anywhere? I especially love the mini’s you did!

    • Thank you so much Peg!–I would have loved to meet you. =) Market was such fun wasn’t it! Right now you can wholesale them through United Notions.

  • Love all your new patterns and your fabric collection!

    • Thank you!

  • Love everyone of your patterns. Can”t wait to make them! Congratulations on a great job!!!

    • Thank you so much!

  • Love all your patterns and your new fabric line coming out soon! How exciting for you! So nice that you share your creativity and inspiration with us! Is quilting by hand and using large stitches a “newer trend” – I really like the look of it and it must be quicker to do, right? I’ll have to order some of your patterns soon.

    • Thanks so much Susan! Big Stitch quilting has been around for quite awhile however I really do see it popping up a lot more than previously. In the past I have seen it done mostly in one color and perhaps a slightly finer thread. I think using colorful, heavier weight thread has given it a slightly modern spin and brought it once again to the attention of quilters. And you are right, using the larger stitches certainly makes it more accessible to quilters as it cuts down on the time spent quilting quite dramatically.

  • Wonderful patterns! I can’t pick just one. Good job! Wish you great success.

    • Thank you so much!

  • Your patterns and new fabric line are WONDERFUL. I will be ordering all of the patterns and look forward to seeing and feeling the fabric in my. local quilt store. Thank you for explaining your patterns and mentioning approximate material requirements. It would be helpful to also mention the finished sizes of the quilts.

    Best of luck on your new adventure. I am already anticipating your next line…no pressure!!!

    • Thank you so much! If you pop over to my Etsy shop you will find the quilt size as well as all of the fabric requirements included in each pattern description. =) And, the next line is already in the works! =) So much fun!

  • Wow! Fantastic!!!! Love Idyllic and all the others as well. Great job!

    • Thank you!

  • Great patterns. I want to start with the mini’s.

  • Love the fabric line and the patterns! The hand quilting on Gingersnap is just PERFECT!

    I think I need the mini patterns, so cute! 😉

  • These are gorgeous patterns. Congratulations!

  • Dear Tiffany:
    I live in Chile and would like to purchase the PDF patterns. How do I go about? Thank you. MER

    • The PDF patterns are available in my Etsy shop. The link is to the right of my blog.
