Heaven gained a great one last night. Honoring his memory by taking his advice, I can always, always be a little kinder. #presidentmonson 📷: @maeberrymom

I’ve had a few lovely weeks off and now it’s back to the beautiful work I get to do! All my collections start with blank watercolor paper and just one or two paint colors. These will eventually be scanned in black and white, rearranged, assembled, recolored and put into repeat. Some will be used multiple times, and some not at all. 🧡

While I haven’t been sewing much, that’s ok! I’ve been taking the time to be really present with my littles this holiday season. Today, I’m working on recreating the unbelievable chocolate rugelach we had in Israel this past summer, to share at our annual Hanukkah party tonight. If I get it right, it will be magic! If I don’t, there’s always latkes! Baking and diffusing all the citrus oils is my happy place. How about you, do you like to bake? What is your favorite Holiday scent? 💙 #happyhanukkah #merrychristmas

One of my very favorite things about EQ is that I can see just how a block is going to look—and while I can usually picture it in my head, it’s especially great to help me show other people my vision. EQ helps me submit ideas to magazines, prepare patterns, and even show alternate color ways. Swipe left to see this block change from Christmas to Patriotic in just 2 clicks! (PS EQ8 is available now! Visit for details or ask for EQ8 at your local quilt shop!) #eq8 #mamascottagefabric
No matter how many times I display the nativity facing out so it’s a pretty display, I come back to find that it’s rearranged this way, with everyone crowding around to see the baby. I imagine that’s more how it really went down. ❤️💚 Grateful for little ones who remind me about the important things. .

I mentioned the other day that a Christmas version of my #inheritancequilt was calling my name—well today I sat down with #eq8 and started playing around—and can I say I’m even more convinced it needs to happen! I get asked all the time what program I use to design quilts, and this is it! Truth, I’m a pencil and paper girl first a lot of the time, but I love how easy it is to draft of my ideas and really see them come to life on the screen. I was worried that the upgrade from 7 to 8 would be either a learning curve or not worth the money—I’m happy to report that the update is visually beautiful (such an improvement) and it functions better too! I’ll tell you a bit more in my next two posts. I’m going to show you how easy it is to change things up in EQ. 😘 (PS EQ8 is available now! Visit for details or ask for EQ8 at your local quilt shop!) #prairiegrasspatterns #mamascottagefabric

Legit true. Every time my sales notification comes up on my phone, I say “Thank you, so-and-so” out loud. I want you to know, if you’ve made a purchase from me, ever, I have literally thanked you by name verbally. I hope you can feel that gratitude from me to you, wherever you are. Your support and following means so much to me, and I hope you’ll stick around for a long long time. Xoxoxo, April #smallbusinesssaturday #shopsmall

What is it about wet rainy weather that demands cookies? When I was a little girl, every time it rained we were so excited to walk home from school because we knew my mom (@graciousrain ) would be baking cookies. It was a great reminder while we were slogging home with soggy shoes 😂 This pretty dough is @thimbleblossoms recipe, I might have made them more than once this week 🤦🏼‍♀️Also, winner is up on my giveaway post and another giveaway this am stay tuned!

Finally, my Neighborly quilt. This quilt was a hit at market, and one of my favorite quilts I’ve ever designed. I started off with the little aqua and pink house, which is an actual quilt block of the real cottage my Mama lives in right this very minute. It’s a little 1940s house, and so as I considered more home designs to add to this quilt, I researched and found floor plans for homes from the same decade. They were so fun to look at!! I then designed the rest of the blocks based on those architectural renderings from the 40s. The details are what makes this quilt for me. The tiny chimneys, the shutters, the points on the picket fences. This isn’t a zoom through it quilt, but would be deliciously fun to make each block one at a time, all scrappy like. This quilt has so much personality, and I can’t wait to see how your neighborhood shapes up! Neighborly is a nod to my lovely neighborhood, and all the wonderful people who have made it home for us. Enjoy the paper or pdf pattern in my shop now, of snag the bundle of all four new patterns for a discount. Keep an eye out later this afternoon—I’ve hit a milestone in followers recently and I want to celebrate!

This is Secret Sauce, the third of my new patterns for my #mamascottagefabric collection ❤️ I put this design together while thinking about the sometimes simple and sometimes complex family recipes that get passed down through generations. I love how every family has their own repertoire of tastes and smells that speak home to them. Secret Sauce is a tribute to those favorite and closely held recipes. Layer cake friendly, small throw size (55” x 77”) and quick to put together, this one is cozy and delightful. Also, what is your favorite backing fabric? Do you have a go-to, or do you choose something to coordinate with each new make? I’m really leaning toward grabbing some bolts of chambray and crossweave, I’m loving this look! Paper and PDF patterns available in the shop or snag the 4-pack of all new patterns! Other new fun things in the shop, you’ll have to head over and see 😘 Link in profile. Happy Sunday sweet friends, I’m off to bake cookies 🍪 #prairiegrasspatterns #aprilrosenthal #mamascottagefabric #showmethemoda #secretsaucequilt

Pattern 2/4 is this fun little number—Welcome! I wanted to do a pineapple quilt because I love the symbolism—hospitality and welcome—which absolutely reminds me of the real Mama’s Cottage. I hesitated though because there are a LOT of pineapple quilts out there, and they’re well done and adorable. I didn’t want to do what had been done already so I decided I would only do it if I could come up with something different. I knew when I drew up this little block that I had a winner! Say hello to Welcome, the next of my new #mamascottagefabric patterns. This one is made from the yellows and oranges from #bestdayeverfabric #meadowbloomfabric and #mamascottagefabric but you can make what I like to call the “Fruit Salad” version if you’d rather (swipe left to see what I mean!) Fat eighth/Fat quarter friendly. Paper and digital patterns are in the shop now, (link in profile) or choose the full bundle for a deal. ☺️ How do you feel about pineapple quilts?? 😘❤️ PS only a few scrap bundles left, and the mini charms are going quick (bonus with purchases over $15), plus the longarm deal still has a few slots left. It’s a busy week over here! #showmethemoda #prairiegrasspatterns #aprilrosenthal #pineapplequilt #welcomequilt

(Edit: I still have a few more mini charms of Mama’s Cottage for orders over $15!) Happy afternoon lovelies! This is my new Inheritance pattern ❤️ I love this quilt more than, well, almost everything. :) its a twin size, made from fat eighths, and those tiny squares are strip pieced, so don’t you worry. If you’re looking for a show stopper, this is it. Both digital and paper patterns are in my shop now, (link in profile) or choose the full 4 pattern bundle for a discount. Tell me, do you love this as much as I do? 😍 #inheritancequilt #prairiegrasspatterns #mamascottagefabric #aprilrosenthal #showmethemoda
