Row X Row ExperienceThis is Kansas Troubles Quilt Shop's first year with the Row x Row Experience. We've enjoyed seeing lots of new faces and seeing all the beautiful rows that have been coming through this summer. Just a week ago, Wendy Hanus of Salina, Kansas stopped in to show us her completed Row X Row quilt. For being first, she won a KT fat quarter bundle. Congrats to Wendy! Thanks for sharing your quilt with us.

Up NorthRobert was taking care of the store this week so my second favorite travel buddy, 14-yr-old grandson Cooper, came with me to Michigan. We splashed it up at Zehnder's waterpark in Frankenmuth, MI, then went to
|This was Cooper's idea of a self portrait. Teenage humor?|
We traveled on to Pinconning, MI to my new favorite quilt shop, Bittersweet. Owner, Tina Bauer, has turned a quaint old church into a quilter's paradise with a wonderful mix of fabric, antiques and collectibles to warm your heart. She and her staff went above and beyond to make Coop and I feel welcome, insisting Cooper use her retreat space to take a nap or just hang out and use the wifi. Really? A nap? He was supposed to be working! :) After six days (and a few long nights) on the road, we arrived home in Kansas to triple digit heat. I think we were both ready to move to Michigan!
SharingTerry Schloss from the Oshkosh Quilt Guild shared her winnings at their local quilt show. She won 3rd place for her Seedlings pillow sleeve (a project she made in my workshop while there earlier this summer) only because her fabulous 3/8" hex mini quilt took 1st place with rave reviews. I would say so! It's stunning! Thanks for sharing your pictures, Terry. And congratulations on being a two-time winner.

KT GiveawayThis week's giveaway is Cooper's favorite KT product, our Layers of Love book with his Cooper's Crossing quilt. A Layer Cake and Jelly Roll play together nicely to create an intricate looking block and border simply using our Layered Patchwork technique. Now that Cooper's learned all about this method, he's ready to make a quilt of his own! He was even signing books in MI. What a hoot!
Comment here about your summer musings to win a Layers of Love book. I'll check back in next week.
