More Christmas on the way

Brenda (Bjeanand@gmail.com) is our winner this week of the Holiday Medley charm pack & pattern. Please send your mailing address, then sit back and relax until the fabric actually ships in about 6 weeks. This week, we'll be rolling up the scrap strips of Holiday Medley from Moda - about 2 Jelly Roll's worth in each. Comment here for a shot at winning one! Wow, think of how many Twinkly stars you could get out of that!

I had a great time visiting with Pat Sloan yesterday afternoon on APQ radio. Still haven't gotten up the nerve to listen to myself (don't you just hate the sound of your own voice?) but felt pretty good about not sticking my foot in my mouth too badly. She definitely makes it easy for her guests. Looking forward to visiting with her at market and again in June at the Vermont Quilt Festival. I'll be teaching 5 classes in 4 days the last weekend in June. If you in the area, I'd love to meet you!

Tomorrow I'm headed to Creston, Iowa to teach a class and share my quilts at their guild meeting on Thursday evening. I love to show how easy and satifying my raw edge applique method is, turning intricate-looking piecing or curved seams into simply stitched pieces. Most quilters can't believe how quickly a block can go together. It's fun for those of us who love to see a project come together in a flash, especially for quilts you plan to use daily or give as gifts. No guilt, no worries. I'd love to come visit your local quilt guild and share my passion for quilts, too. Email or call me for more information.

  27. How exciting for the winner - I'm still oohing and awwing over my Sandhill Plums scraps. Love the richness of the colors and still thinking of something that will do the fabric justice. Christmas fabric - oh that would be great and a big motivator to not wait until the last minute. Thanks for the chance.

  29. Do you ever consider Michigan in your travels? I don't have a quilt guild, but I do have a couple of favorite quilt shops in mid-Michigan. And your raw edge appliqué does look intriguing! Thanks for another chance to win.

  30. Anything KT would be amazing to win. Thanks for a chance. Guess it really is time to start thinking about Christmas; maybe a new tree skirt or ornaments for the grandchildren. So many possibilities with this wonderful fabric.

  31. I love KT fabrics, I think a KT charm pack was my first precut purchase about 5 years ago. I get a lot of comments on the tote bag I made with those charms and my quilting group asked me to teach it - no doubt due to the lovely timeless fabrics used! I still have a hard time moving my bigger precuts, jelly rolls and layer cakes, from the "admire" stage to the "cut up and sew back together" stage, maybe if I have some "scraps," that'll be easier! Thanks for being so generous!

  32. Do you have a tutorial on your raw edge technique for those of us who can't make the class?? Would love to see it some day!!

  49. Can't ever have enough Christmas fabrics. Thanks so much for the chance to win your scraps (I think there should be a better term than "scraps", maybe "surprise cuts" or "treasured mystery bundle" )

  52. I need me some new KT fabrics. I have been making so many quilts out of all the lines that I have of KT Fabrics that new Holiday jelly rolls would be the icing on the cake squares.

  53. Jelly Roll strips are quick & alot of fun to use. I've got a few left over strips from Kansas Troubles jelly rolls that I'm using to help complete a project.

  57. I would love to plan a quilt using one of your jelly rolls. Thanks! Lana D.

  58. I absolutely love scraps and actually use them. Have a super weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Holiday Medley sounds SO nice! :-) I just love the thoughts of a melodic quilt ;-)
    Scraps are my absolute favorite - honestly
    I feel much freedom to "play" with scraps thinking it's OK if I have an accident because it's a scrap. So my artistic creativity is release and I have fun just trying things.
    Of course - there is always that silly side of me which says - OH - Don't use it up - there'll be no more of that one if you use it up.
    Love / Hate Conflict - love the fabric - hate to use it up
    Thanks for the chance to win.
