2nd Charming Thursday - Stitches II

My second collection of fabric for Moda, Stitches on the Oregon Trail II, was designed to complement Stitches I so that quilt shops would have the fabric needed for the BOM all year. (Quilt shops love BOM's, fabric companies hate them.)I was just relieved to not have to come up with another name. Our project using this group was called A Collection of Stitches. It featured seasonal wall quilts and several lap size quilts and pillow projects using Stitches I & II. The book is out of print now, but we remade one of my favorites from the book, Red Brick Road, once Jelly Rolls made their debut a few years ago. It hangs in the retreat kitchen where I can admire it during lunch. One of my sons has his eye on it and would like to have it "whenever you get tired of it, Mom", but he may have to wait until I die. I never get tired of the classic red/tan color combo and the graphic appeal of the rows and rows of strips. This pattern will be on special for $5 -this week only- if you call Robert at 785-488-2120. And we have the charm pack of Stitches II ready to go to another persistent quilter. Good luck, ladies!

  24. Oh I love Red Brick Road. I am salivating at the fabrics of Stitches on the Oregon Trail II. Another that I didn't have as I wasn't quilting then. What a great gift to win some of those. As always, your color choices and patterns are WONDERFUL. Seing your earlier fabrics is no wonder that I LOVE Kansas Troubles fabric lines. You are really wonderful to do these Thursday giveaways and we are blessed that we can be recipients.
    THank you again.
