Making a path to the Post Office

 I'm delighted that we've sent out over 5 dozen Twinkly Stars patterns to all of you blog readers so far that sent in a stamped envelope. I've been getting the mail, opening the envelopes, stuffing the included envelopes with a pattern and heading back to the Post Office. Even Gwen, our postmaster, noticed how often I was trekking back and forth. How fun was that! I'm counting it as my exercise for the day. Thanks to everyone who celebrated with us.

Hmmm...I think I forgot something in last week's post. Maybe a new giveaway for the week? Duh! Sorry about that. This week, I think we'll offer the 3 new patterns from last year's Stash Society that are now available to everyone - Squared, Scrap Baskets and Pickets & Petals. Squared is a traditional square-in-a-square block x 3 with not-so-traditional raw edge plaid triangles sewn into the border seam and buttoned down. Very fun table topper or wall quilt for everyday.
Scrap Baskets make good use of all those little strips you've been collecting for just the right project. Pieced log-cabin style baskets have fused bias handles for the perfect finishing touch.
Pickets & petals is a fun way to celebrate spring with blooms peeking over the neighbor's fence. Simply pieced 9-patches create the flowers with raw edge stems and leaves over a strippy picket fence. Clusters of buttons are tied to the flower centers for a fun touch.
All of these patterns are also available on our website now at ktquilts.com. Have you checked out the new June newsletter with a delicious Macaroon cookie recipe, a patriotic flag quilt to make for the 4th of July and a sneak peek at the new Harvest Moon project? 

I'll be in Grand Junction, CO all next week for a program and workshops. I hope to blog from the road - we'll see how that works for me. Until then, have a great beginning of summer week.
Lynne

  43. Twinkly Stars looks so fun. Sorry I missed out on getting a free copy. Went on Vacation and left the technology home. It was wonderfully weird.
    But I get to see you in Grand Junction. I am signed up for the class on Friday with my mother. We are looking forward to lots of fun... Can't wait.
