Layers of Love Preview 1

Market is over, the new Layers of Love book is FINALLY at the printer and next year's Christmas group is off to Moda. Whew! In addition, with school out, we've had grankids coming and going regularly. Love it! And some pretty intense storms leaving us without power for hours at a time. No tornadoes, just really strong straight line winds. Not normal for here, but what's normal with the weather anymore???

KT Winner

Congrats to Donna W. who enjoys all precuts but especially likes Layer Cakes. She'll have a Holly Wishes charm pack and pattern to add to her collection. Thanks to everyone who commented on their favs.

Pittsburg, PA Market

Market was great this year. We built a park for our booth to showcase the new fabric line, Paisley Park. My vision for a lamp post, tree, picnic table and fence to hang quilts came together to earn us a blue ribbon for Best Double Booth. Very nice to be acknowledged for our hard work. Robert and I enjoyed the variety of eateries in downtown Pittsburg and had a chance to do some antique shopping on the way home. Good trip.
Our Paisley Park included a street light, tree, brick path and a picnic table. 

The quilt hanging on the fence in front is our Moda Schoolhouse challenge. Watch for everyone's
versions & instructions in the Sept. Moda Designer's Blog Hop.


The new Paisley Park quilts are hung on the fence -  (L to R) Prim Pinwheels, Paisley Party w/ 2 runners and pillow,
A Day in the Park charm quilt and Perfectly Paisley. So fun to name all the quilts!

Enjoyed demonstrating the layered patchwork technique to shop owners. They loved it!


And the winner is...KTQ!

Layers of Love

 Everyone was excited about the new quilts in our Layers of Love book featuring lots of precuts and our unique layered patchwork technique. It's expands on the ideas in Loose Change using Jelly Rolls, Honey Buns and Honeycombs along with Layer Cakes, charms and minis. Beginning today, I'll preview one project a week from now until the book comes out in July.

This week's quilt is the one that started it all. My daughter, Nicole, requested a quilt for her 30th birthday with 30 stars from a pattern I created for 100 Quilt Blocks a couple years ago. She hand selected the 90 different KT fabrics from my stash and waited patiently. Well, it's been about 2 years and she finally took her quilt home. As most quilters know, making a quilt - especially squeezing one in between quilts for work - is a process. She's been fairly patient and is thrilled with the results. Here's her king size 30-Something quilt and the lap quilt with a dozen blocks and pieced border.



The star block is a simple 9-patch with squares and triangles layered and stitched on top of the background squares - no lost star points! The zigzag border is made up of star point units sewn together in rows. So simple!



I'll be giving away a Layers of Love book each week for the next 8 weeks so don't miss a chance to be one of the first to get it mailed directly to you - signed. Comment here for a chance to win. See you next week for another sneak peek.

  71. So excited to start my first KT quilt. Robert just sent me a layer cake and charm pack. What a charming experience to call your shop and have the personal service. Your fabrics and designs emanate love and comfort, something I want to pass down to friends and family. My first project is for my mother-in-laws 86 birthday who just made it through radiation. Second project is for my grown daughters. Who doesn't love a quilt made by your mom, especially when they cannot tuck you in bed at night anymore. :) thank you for the great ideas, colors and pre-cuts to work with. (teri.j.kline@gmail.com)
