\ ‘mer-e\ ‘we-ther\ | noun |

happy weather: good times: a cheer fu l person: a sunny disposi t i on Meriwether is all the folksy, whimsical, vintage-inspired magic of my childhood, brought to life in sweet hand-painted flowers and plaids. These prints remind me of getting lost in fields of wildflowers behind my great grandparents’ old Illinois farmhouse, of chasing glowbugs beneath twinkling stars in my grandparents garden on warm summer nights. It’s twirling my skirt at a barn dance, singing pretty harmonies on a bumpy song-filled hayride, and pillow fights on my parents bed. It’s the sweet little joys in life, the good times, the sunshine. Pretty aprons. A Sunday drive into the country after church. Just good old-fashioned, handmade, homespun happiness. I hope you’ll enjoy playing with the sweet floral motifs, which are perfect for fussy cutting, and also pair beautifully with matching embroidery. The plaid is dreamy as a quilt binding, and don’t miss the text print featuring my all-time favorite uplifting scripture verses in the sweetest cursive. I hope you’ll stitch to your heart’s desire, making things that bring joy and sunshine to your life.

“Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever

is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things..” -Philippians 4:8 They say your environment can affect your mood and it’s true---the things we choose to surround ourselves with tend to soak in and shape our attitudes. That’s why I designed this print. I wanted to be able to surround myself with my favorite uplifting scripture verses...the ones that tug at my heart and draw me back to truth and joy when the worries of the day threaten to pull me in. Use this ultra-versatile text print, available in three colors, in any project-- a table runner, a journal cover, a bag, a quilt --and embrace the truth in these powerful words every day.

Oh how I adore cottage-style furniture! I find it at thrift stores and yard sales--even on the side of the road---rescued from a trip to the landfill or a sad life buried in a garage. Scrolly carved dressers and spindley beds are scattered adorn every room, smiling at me with their vintage style. And that’s what inspired this quilt--- it’s named after the timeless Jenny Lind beds, and is the perfect way to highlight those sweet little flowers in the Folk Fleur print. Sweet, simple, and deliciously folk.
