Benartex's Winter At The Farm Collection + Virtual Fabric Show

 As many of you know, I'm a Midwest farm girl so when the 2023 Benartex Brand Ambassadors were selecting collections for Christmas in July, I was quick to pick Winter At The Farm by Dianna Swartz.  I absolutely love it.  Big red barns, cows, sows, cardinals and tractors bring back so many memories of my childhood. 

The Winter at the Farm collection is based around a panel featuring the Snow Hill Farm and the coordinating fabrics can bring a variety of colorways - gray, red, green and black.  

For my project, I opted to go with a red and gray colorway so that I can keep using the throw even after all the Christmas quilts have been put away.  So don't be surprised if it's April and I'm still snuggled under this one!  :) 

As I designed and made the quilt, I simply added borders around the panel.  Plain borders, pieced borders, more plain borders and fussy cut border fabric followed by another round of plain borders.  The border print in the collection makes it look much more difficult than it really was. 

I mitered the corners to give the illusion that the tractors were driving around the quilt.  

If you want to learn more about the Winter At The Farm collection as well as the other new collections from Benartex, be sure to join us for the Christmas in July Virtual Fabric Show on Tuesday July 25, 2023.
