KT WinnerCongratulations to:
Coming to a Guild Near You!Robert and I just returned from a trip to Iowa where we were hit by the last blast of winter, making us even more anxious for our upcoming cruise. We spent time with a delightful group of ladies in Iowa City from the Old Capital Quilters Guild on Monday for a workshop and trunk show after spending Friday and Saturday with the lovely ladies from the Iowa Quilter's Guild in Fort Dodge, IA. Here's a look at some of the results from these very prolific quilters.

R and I spent the day Sunday shopping and snacking our way across the state to Iowa City for a workshop/program on Monday. More than 2 dozen quilters took over the church basement to get Twisted in a myriad of color options. Here's a partial group posing with their nearly completed projects.
|Gray splatter with brights - so fun!|
|Love this indigo Twisted with a bit of bright attitude thrown in for good measure. Kinda like the quilter peeking out from behind her quilt!|

I love it when I can visit a couple different guilds in one trip - less expense for the guilds and makes our driving time worthwhile. Speaking of driving, Robert and I will be traveling to California in September this year to visit the Orange Grove Quilters Guild in Garden Grove, CA. We're hoping to add another guild event in CA during our trip. Anyone interested in learning my layered patchwork technique? We're available Sept.8-12th, depending on your location. Please email me if those dates might work for your guild. The more, the merrier!
KT Travel PlansWe have 2 days at home to unpack, do laundray, repack and catch up before heading to Florida for our 2nd Jenny Doan/Lynne Hagmeier Quilting Cruise. Our cruise for Jan. 2017 is sold out, but as soon as I have information for 2018 Cruises, I'll announce it here. It's the most fun way to quilt for a week, enjoy wonderful meals & room service, and visit exotic ports. We love it!
After some fun in the sun (and the classroom) we'll be home for a couple weeks, then off to Salt Lake City for Spring Quilt Market in May. Always such a good time catching up with designer friends and shop owners.
June 1-4, I'll be in Peoria, IL hanging out with the ladies from Gems of the Prairie Quilt Guild. Join us for Delainey's Twirls & Swirls, Clara's Garden or Makin' Honey Mini from the new Bees 'n Blooms collection. Contact Laurie Baker for more information - firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're taking some time for family most of the summer, then I'm headed to Missouri Star in Hamilton, MO to teach a retreat with Jenny August 25-27th. Call MSQC for more info. I'll be teaching 30-Something, from Layers of Love. Here's a look at this charming doubled star in beautiful batiks.
