Moda/Martingale Blog Hop and GiveawayDo you love cake? I know, silly question. But have you tried Moda's Cake and Cupcake Mix Papers to create perfect half square triangles? A whole different kind of recipe, but one that makes "baking" a quilt much easier.
I was skeptical at first, having tried numerous other triangle papers and not loving them. After being
Here's my little quilt, Pin Me, using just one Cupcake Mix pack and a KT charm pack.
There are more than a dozen creative, wonderful projects in this book featuring Moda's Cake Mix papers using Layer Cakes, and Cupcake Mix papers with charm packs. So easy and fun!
Would you like to try one of the recipes in Mix It Up? Comment here to win a KT Through the Years Layer Cake (my newest fabric line not available until March 2020), a Bella Solid Layer Cake, a pack of Cake Mix papers #2, and, of course, the Mix It Up book. What a grand prize! Thanks to Moda and Martingale for these great giveaways.
Comment here by Friday, November 8th at midnight to win. I'll post the winner on Saturday.

MilestonesMy new Milestones fabric collection has arrived! I'm delighted with the assortment of floral, leaf and geometric prints in the warm KT colors of fall. I even threw in my plum/purple along with pumpkin this season, just for fun. This line blends beautifully with KT Favorites III - and all KT fabrics - to create my new 20 Years of KTQ Block-of-the-Month quilt. It features 20 blocks to celebrate 20 years of KT fabric with Moda. I hope you're joining us when the fun kicks off in January with Blocks #1 and #2. Check with your local quilt shop to sign up, then join our Facebook group to follow along for tips along the way.

Woven DreamsOur KT November Special is the Woven Dreams lap kit. The traditionally pieced ribbon star block is a new favorite of mine. If you participated in Blockheads II, you might remember I used it as one of my blocks. Since then, I've simplified it with fewer seams - still piecing it traditionally - for a flatter, easier block. Woven Dreams features a Milestones Jelly Roll to make a 60" x 74" lap quilt.
Our Woven Dreams Kit includes a Milestones Jelly Roll plus all fabric for quilt top & binding
and pattern in a beautiful Moda box (see below - limited quantities).
Retail $109.95. Our special price is $95 with FREE shipping.

KT & Friends Retreat 2020As you read this, I'll just be returning home from Hamilton, MO, home of Missouri Star Quilt Co. Robert and I hosted another KT & Friends Retreat. Joining me again were my quilting buddies, Jenny Doan of Missouri Star, and Barb Groves and Mary Jacobsen of Me and My Sister Designs. We took over Hotel Hamilton, a motel and retreat space for quilters that visit MSQC. Owner Dakota Redford has done a wonderful job decorating the themed rooms for quilt enthusiasts. We all enjoyed teaching about 90 quilters over 4 days of workshops and trunk shows, plus lots of surprises.
If you couldn't make it to one of our KT events this year, Robert and I are delighted to be hosting another KT & Friends Retreat at the home of Kansas Troubles Quilters in Bennington, Kansas, June 17-20, 2020. Last June, we took over the high school with 100 quilters taking "summer school" workshops in the classrooms, eating in the school cafeteria, and enjoying trunk shows in the gym. It was so much fun!
We're also planning to take KT & Friends on the road again later in the year. Maybe we'll come to a city near you!
If you're interested in joining us in the future for a KT & Friends Retreat, email our coordinator, Kathy, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
