KT's 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways - Day 9

KT Winner Day 8

Congrats to
Evie Christner - Quilts and antiques are a perfect combo.

You're the winner of our Day 8 giveaway - a bevy of autumn patterns. Please send your mailing address to lynne@ktquilts.com and we'll send out your goodies soon.

12 Days of Christmas Giveaway - Day 9

Our 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!

  4. What I like about KT quilt patterns is the simplicity of them. With just a charm pack, layer cake and a yard of cloth or 2, one can make a beautiful quilt.

  14. I think each quilt I've made (all three of them!) can be called layers of love, too - each was made with much love for each recipient and to add a layer of warmth to chilly days.

  15. This book is on my wish list. I would love to try the method.

  16. Love the quilts and the fact that it's just one charm pack plus 2 other fabrics is a great way to make a quilt using a small amount of one fabric collection.

  59. What a great way to honor your grandchildren. I'm sure it made each of them feel special and have one of grandma's quilts to call their own.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love the idea of the layered technique you created. I too, made the table runner that was on a Missouri Star video, and it was so much fun. I made it out of Christmas fabric and it's in my living room right now. I'm eager to see other patterns in this book. Seasons greetings!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love your techniques, your patterns, but most of all your fabrics!!! They make any pattern look great!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Goody, goody, happy dance, this is the one I've been waiting for! I so want to learn this technique of yours for layering! I hoped one of the giveaways would be this book so I might have a chance at it -- and of course I'd want to use KT fabrics (my favs) since they are so perfect in YOUR quilts. Of course, if I don't win, I still want to learn the techniques -- but maybe this will be just the kickstart I need.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Love the chance to win this book! The KT colors are my favorites, so warm and cozy.

    ReplyDelete

  73. I was given the assignment by a friend to make a quilt for each of my grandchildren. I've worked on that for years, beginning with the 25 grandchildren already there. I now have 55 with another 2 due next Spring and have made more than 30 quilts.

    I made the Loose Change quilt, purchasing the template, and following the instructions on the Missouri Star tutorial. The layering method saved sooo much time and stress. I would love to have the book in order to make more!

    ReplyDelete
  74. That is sooooo pretty. I have a lot of Kansas Troubles fabric. That would be nice patterns to use make quilts.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I have admired this book during many shows and at several quilt stores. I would love to try many of the projects in it!

    ReplyDelete
