3 Popular Quilt Designs to Inspire Your Primitive Country Home Decorating


Whether you’ve built the farmhouse of your dreams or you just want to update your current home décor theme, home decorating can seem like a daunting task. Choosing a décor theme is the first step. You must first decide what home “feel” you are looking for. Are you looking for a cabin lodge style? Are you looking for something more vintage primitive? Or, are you looking for a more rustic country theme?  At Primitive Star Quilt Shop we have something for everyone!

Rooted in American rural traditions, primitive country décor is all about materials like wood, tin, burlap, and probably the most iconic of all – the quilt. Since the days of pioneers, even the most functional items were made into beautiful home accents. Primitive country quilts not only provide comfort and warmth, but they also add a nice focal piece to any room.

Although many may think of muted, earth tone colors when they think of primitive country home décor, that is not the case at all. Our quilts offer something for everyone’s taste and still retain their traditional, heirloom heritage. Below are 3 popular designs to choose from to get you going in the right primitive country home decorating direction. We will be taking a look at quilts with stars, patchwork blocks, and the log cabin design.

1. The Star Design:

The star design is likely the most recognizable quilt pattern in America. It is one of the oldest designs consisting of 5, 6 or 8 point stars, often there is one large central star and other smaller stars along the border of the quilt or occupying blank fabric space. Another very popular way to incorporate stars is to add them to a Ninepatch or patchwork pattern with the stars popping off the quilt to make a statement. Sometimes the stars are a solid color and other quilts are created with each point being a different material.
