Bees 'n Blooms, Coming Soon!

KT Winner   

Congratulations to Patricia Çarluccio - Just a note to let you know I love this wall hanging and ready to do more for Christmas gifts. I am a quilter of larger quilts and was looking to something smaller and faster.the fabrics are beautiful and work so well together. Can't wait to get started on many more. Thank you so much, Patrica.

Patricia, send your mailing address to lynne@ktquilts.com and we'll send your goodies right out. 

We have a second winner this week of the new book, I Love Log Cabins, by Martingale. My easy log cabin quilt, Framed, is included in this fun book with quilts by over a dozen different designers. 
 Congrats to:Terri Mc -Thanks for the heart pattern. I love how you can simplify things !  And Happy Anniversary !!

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day. Robert gave me his sinus infection as an anniversary gift this year. Definitely not the most romantic. That would be the reason this blog post is a bit late. I recuperated over the weekend, hanging out with our retreat ladies, then had to hit the ground running Monday to catch up. I realized this morning since the KT Stitch With Me is over, I had to figure out what to blog about. With March and the promise of spring flowers just around the corner, we have alot to talk about.

KT Stitch With Me

First of all, I want to thank everyone who followed along and stitched with me. What a fun way to make a simple little quilt with alot of personality. I have parts of several that I plan to stitch together for gifts. Feels good to be ahead of the game for once. This one was so much fun, watch for another Stitch With Me later this summer.

Bees 'n Blooms

We're anxiously waiting for the UPS guy to bring our order of Bees 'n Blooms, my newest collection of KT fabrics by Moda. We'll have bolts, precuts, fat quarter bundles and patterns galore. Until it arrives sometime in March, all I can do is share with you all the fun projects we've made with this bee-u-ti-ful collection. I love the little bees, swirls and honey trails along with large and small flowers, of course. Shades of red, green, navy, purple, gold, black & tan swarm together to create a delightful assortment of quilts for your spring decor. Stay tuned over the next few weeks to see all the Bees 'n Blooms projects.


The Buzzz charm pattern is my new favorite. Charm squares plus one simple block featuring our layered patchwork turns simple into adorable. No one minds this charming bee hive!

Like it? Love it? Win it! Comment here to win the Buzzz pattern plus a Bees 'n Blooms charm pack. Come back each week for more chances to win the Bees 'n Blooms book and scrap packs. We'll "bee" seeing you!

    We ended up staying home this weekend too, but we both got sick on the same day, so can't blame my husband for this one;)

  23. Isn't it just wonderful our husbands are always so caring to be sure we aren't left out of them sharing their sickness? I hope you are feeling a lot better. Mine just shared with me this past weekend and it knocked me out for three days. I won't go into details, but it was not much fun at all.

    Love that block you've shown today and the quilt using it. How fun. Of course, the fabrics look great. It must be exciting to see your own designs arrive in beautiful fabrics you get to play with before anyone else.

  24. You've done it again!!! I love this fabric as I love all of your fabric. I especially love how all of your collections work together!! I have made several quilts from your fabric, including the one on my bed, and can't wait to play with your Bees n' Blooms, especially if it'll make summer seem closer!! Love the design too!

  25. I love the Buzzz pattern! There is a great deal of motion in this quilt--you can feel the hive buzzing. I'm need to put this on my summer "to do" list. It will look great in my classroom--we are the Yellow Jackets!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow! I love all of those bees! I can't believe what you can do with a simple block and turn it into a stunning quilt!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Such a fun looking pattern with your lovely new fabric!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. LOVE IT! Another for my "to do" list! KT was my first fabric obsession when I started quilting and is still my all time favorite. Whenever my quilting friends see a quilt with KT fabric, I hear "Oh! Teresa is going to like this one!". Your fabric lines have unintentionally somewhat become my trademark.

  29. I would love to make that quilt. My husband wants to start bee keeping when he retires.

  48. When I married my husband he had this beehive teapot that belonged to his grandmother. I fell in love with it and started collecting more of the pottery. My grandmother's name was Beatrice (Bea) and she also collected bees. A match made in heaven! This quilt would fit right in with our combined collection!!!

  49. I love the pattern. From a distance, it looks like spools of thread too!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I can't wait to see this line of fabric. I've wanted to make a quilt for my brother for years. He (ahem...) "doesn't like" bees. So just a little jab in a sweet, sisterly way to remind him of a funny story from long, long ago. The Bee Hive pattern may just be the one.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think bees are fascinating, and so timely since they are having so much trouble with their hives now. Hopefully this will cause some quilters to look into more about the bees and help them. Way to go! Thank you for your patterns and fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  52. What a fantastic block! With the reduction of bees in the U.S. we all need to be thinking of planting "bee-friendly" plants to do our part! Can't wait to try the new block and fabric! Thanks for the give away

  53. What a great quilt!!! I would "bee" so excited to win this pattern and charm pack! I just love and admire your talent!!!

  80. I so don't need another book but I need this one! I love how you used the melon shapes. I prefer using thin interfacing for applique, and the melon shape turns very well. I like the slight puffiness it makes to flowers.

  81. Hi I would love to win this. You always have such beautiful fabrics and the patterns all fit together wonderfully. Have a great day.
