Spring Market Intro - Oak Haven

KT Winner

Congrats to:
Debra McClanahan - That's the thing about a cruise-you have a set aside time to sew. I've had too many distraction so far this year (our daughter's wedding is 3 weeks from today)and I miss the actual sewing part of quilting. Watching beautiful fabric become part of something new is a big part of the experience for me. Would love to win your tans and put them into a new creation. 
 
Please email your shipping address to lynne@kquilts.com and Jamie will pack up your tan scraps and send them your way. Thanks to everyone who share their comments each week. I look forward to hearing from all of you.

Spring Market Introduction

To all my quilting friends, please, let me introduce you to Oak Haven. It's my new favorite fabric collection! We're finishing up the last few projects before Spring Market in Salt Lake City in a couple weeks - quilting, binding, taking pictures and adding one more thing.
 
I've been cutting out leaves, acorns, flowers and berries for weeks to stitch onto a lap quilt, runners and a pillow sleeve. I LOVE how everything is coming together. But something strange is going on. You know when you decide to make a scrappy quilt from your stash and dig out your basket of scraps - and even share with friends - but the basket is full again the next time you look? I swear, the same has been true for these appliques! Each night, I think I've used most of the pieces I've cut, adding a few more berries here and tucking in another acorn or two there. I go to bed satisfied that I'm almost done. But, in the morning, there are more leaves and acorns and berries and flowers scattered on my cutting table. They just keep multiplying! 
 
Oak leaves, acorns, flower petals & berries for Oak Haven projects.
 
 So of course, I make one more thing to use them up. Robert says it's all about the pre-Market frenzy of making lists, gathering props for the booth and "just one more thing". Until we get in the car to head to Utah, I have a hard time sitting back and saying "That's enough, I'm done".

 I know all of you can relate. When was the last time you went on a shop hop with friends, had a fabulous time, and announced in the car on the ride home, "That's enough, I'm not buying anymore fabric for months!" Uh huh. You totally understand me. Part of being a quilter is our creative souls need to be fed, nourished by fabric and thread and books and "just one more thing". It's what keeps us looking forward to the next market/shop hop/fabric collection/quilt.
 
One More Thing - Oak Haven Mini Table Treat
 
So hang around for the next few weeks and see all the new projects for Oak Haven - plus the new Prairie Christmas arriving next month! So much to see. So much to share.

  3. Wow, if I was rich I would buy a bolt of fabric of every single one of your fabric lines. My house would be an explosion of Kansas Troubles in Missouri and my Missouri friends would "What the heck ???" And I would say "I'm from Kansas. Gotta have all things Kansas. " :)

  4. Oh those fabrics look so pretty! Love the richness of your reds and browns. Love all those leaves and berries. I totally get what you mean about scraps! I am making something with 1 1/2" squares. I cut way too many! Now I have a bunch of little squares all over! Thanks for these give aways. They are so sweet! K- lkw2x6-apq@yahoo.com

  6. I have a special "thing" for acorns. Don't know where that comes from? Probably the same place where my love affair with lace, vintage hankies, salt cellars, quilts, fabric and.......you get the idea! A little jacked up! :) What a nice giveaway.
