KT Winner Day 8
12 Days of Christmas Giveaway - Day 9Our giveaway for Day 9 is our Layers of Love book. Now is the time to embrace precuts and our layered patchwork technique for fast & simple quilts for everyone in your life. The "Layers" part of the title refers to our unique method of layering squares, triangles and precuts over background squares and topstitching close to the raw edges. This technique not only eliminates bulky seams by simplifying traditional quilt blocks, but creates a fun, dimensional look, as well. The "Love" part is all about the grankids. It was so much fun to design a quilt for each of our 8 grankids with their personalities and hobbies in mind.
One of the favorites is Delainey's Twirls & Swirls. This delightful pinwheel quilt uses just one charm pack plus 2 fabrics for background and border. It's pieced with just one block - a square with 2 different sized triangles stitched on top. In all the classes I've taught, there isn't one color combo that wasn't twirly & swirly!
I love it in classic KT colors, of course, but the brights just make me smile! A charm makes a 72" sq. quilt, but it's easily made smaller for a baby quilt. Add buttons for even more dimension.
There are more than a dozen other projects in the book using the same method of layered patchwork to create stars, hex's, runners and more! Comment by 10pm CST tonight to win this book -and a bit of fun to go along with it!
