By the time you read this, I'll be on the road to visit the Threads of Friendship Quilt Guild in Bloomfield, IA, then on to Quilt 'n Kaboodle in Cherokee, IA. When I return home, my granddaughter, Aleece, will be visiting for a week while her parents get settled into their new place. I plan to get a little pool time in and help her make a small doll quilt she's had laid out on the floor.
For this week's Charming Thursday, Autumn Journey takes center stage. I love the colors of fall and try to incorporate the browns and pumpkins into the classic KT red, green and navys each year. My Mom loves to decorate with leaves, so this quilt was created as a Christmas gift for her several years ago.
This fast and easy Irish chain starts with a Jelly Roll with scattered raw edge leaves. We actually have a couple of kits for the lap size (above) that were unearthed while reorganizing this summer. Isn't it amazing what you can find tucked away? Just email me directly if you're interested. We'll have more goodies on the website later next month, including Christmas on sale in August.
Oh yes! We also have kits for the Summer's Last Bloom quilt on the cover of Primitive Quilts magazine. If you haven't experienced it yet, you can get one at ktquilts.com and check it out.
Expect pics of Aleece next week!
