$5 in September: Pure Country Farmhouse Pattern
Another month is here – which means a new pattern on sale. Say hello to the Pure Country farmhouse quilt pattern. With Country Rose yardage popping up in US shops this month, it’s the perfect time to make one just like mine. Hurry to the site to snag the Pure Country pattern for $5 September 2022.
A Farmhouse Quilt
The Pure Country quilt design was born from my love of old ranch houses, fields of green, and country ballads. I spent almost every summer in the Colorado mountains on my grandparents’ ranch and since I can’t enjoy that fresh air and wide open space all year round, I figured it would be mighty nice to bring some of that ranch life to me.
The Pure Country pattern instructions are available as a PDF download or printed booklet. This pattern is considered intermediate skill level – employing easy corner triangle technique, quarter-square triangle technique, and containing a lot of pieces in general. I think this would make a fantastic scrapbuster!
Read more details about the Pure Country quilt in Country Rose fabric by visiting the Pure Country blog post here. Ever since I made the original, I’ve been dying to make a second version to match my living room. I tend to decorate with a laidback farmhouse vibe (and a lot of navy acccents) so I’m thinking a muted version in Flower Pot would be just lovely.
Pure Country in Flower Pot Fabric
Here is a little mockup I came up with in Flower Pot fabric. If you want to make one like it, I’ll include a materials list below! (Share this list with your favorite local or online shop to see if they can help you get a kit put together). I sure wish I could drop everything right now and make it!

Here’s a slight tweak to the mockup to show what it could look like with a taupe border – the “Glossary” print in Taupe (SKU #5164 14).
