The panel is 2/3 yard of Scriptures: Whatever you do work at with all your heart, as working for the Lord not, for men. Give Thanks. Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. We live by faith, not by sight. The Lord is my strength and song. Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Ask, Seek, Knock. Fear not for I am with you. We love because he first loved us. Blocks range in size from 10 1/2″ x 6″ to 4″ x 2 1/2″. 100% Cotton 44-45″ Wide.
This bright, very dynamic large-scale collection features a landscape panel that runs selvage to selvage. It’s great for quick and easy contemporary quilts. Running yardage of artsy floral blocks and large packed bouquets add to the vibrant vibe. A fabulous stripe, floating leaves and four tonal pieces round out this remarkable and outstanding collection.

Stephanie Prescott’s Bio
Like so many of us, I was introduced to quilting by my Mom but as an adult. My mother, Susan, was the quintessential crafter. You name it; she did it and did it beautifully. But with all her hobbies she would eventually find a new interest and move on to the next one. That is until quilting. In 1989 her friend asked her to take a quilting class with her. She actually didn’t even want to since she had never really enjoyed sewing. As they say, the rest was history. She fell in love with all aspects of quilting and quickly became an avid and proficient quilter. One of the wonderful things I have discovered about quilting is that it grows with you and your quilts reflect your changing esthetics without you outgrowing it.
In 1997 my mother said that she would love to have a quilt shop; that it would be a dream. That made the name easy, A Quilter’s Dream, her dream of having a store. By the end of the year the shop was born! She was the creative end and I helped the business side but her passion was contagious and I became very interested in the fabric selection, merchandising and packaging aspects of the business. By mid 1998 we were working at the business together full time. As the business grew, we branched out into shows and began to emphasize quilt kits using an eclectic fabric selection. Mom had another dream, to quilt and live in Lake Arrowhead. She realized that dream at the end of 1999. After she moved, I ran the shop and began to design quilt patterns for giveaways and Block of the Months. I gravitated towards fat quarter projects because of the ease to kit them. I am endlessly fascinated with the geometry and math of quilt design. I am a graph paper girl at heart but am using the computer more frequently. My inspiration for fabric selection comes from the mixing of genres, patterns and scale to achieve an interesting mosaic of textures throughout the quilt. I officially began to design, package and sell my patterns in my shop and a few local quilt stores in 2007. A few of years later I closed the retail store and threw my efforts into pattern design, unusual and unexpected fabric selections for my kits, and trade shows.
As I added more designs and branched into tote bag patterns I felt I was ready to debut at my first Quilt Market! It was there in Minneapolis that Keepsake Quilting discovered me and “put me on the map” when they featured my Hokey Pokey design on the cover. Since then I have continued to design and travel across the country doing quilt shows. At Quilt Market I give lectures at Schoolhouse about my designing philosophy. This past year I have partnered with E. E. Schenck in designing my first fabric line – Java Macchiato Batiks. The colors developed from my 12 years of over-dyeing black and white fabrics to cream, tan, caramel, brown and blacks. I called them my Sepia colors. The designs came out of my love of geometric shapes, the juxtaposition of straight lines and curves, as well as my need for whimsy, the unexpected and the design that is one thing at first but becomes something else when cut up in a quilt. I am addicted to the idea of what a fabric becomes.
For nearly all of this adventure I have been a single mom of two children; a girl and a boy, Roxanna and Alexander. Roxanna has caught the design bug and my son can sell you anything! As of this year they are both in collage and I am so proud I could burst.
