Twisted Workshop, September 20th - So adorable in brights!


Argyle Sox 

Don't you just love a warm & cozy pair of argyle sox in winter? My husband, Robert, has a couple pair of alpaca sox he calls his "happy sox" because they keep his feet so warm it makes him smile. :)  I played with my new KT Diamond Templates and figured out a way to make a striking argyle pattern easily. Our strippy quilt is 2 fabrics sewn together, alternating medium/dark prints. I layered/fused 2 small diamonds over a large diamond to create the effect, then simply laid them end-to-end on the seam lines and topstitched. So fast & easy!

Argyle Sox Lap Quilt 66" x 78"   JR + 2 fabrics
I can see this done up in school colors for cuddling in the stands at football games or a dorm room. What colors would you choose?

Argyle Sox Runner
I love the 4th of July and try to make a new red/tan/blue project each year. This runner lived on my kitchen table all summer as a great backdrop for my holiday decor without competing for attention. I can't wait to finish my fall version with leftover JR strips and rich chocolate browns. Here's the computer generated version.



 Both of these projects are found in our new Oak Haven booklet (click here), available now at ktquilts.com. Win our set of KT Diamond Templates to make these projects by commenting on your favorite team colors. More Oak Haven quilts to come next week!

  3. I love argyle and your quilts here are such a wonderful rendition of it! The templates look perfect for it.
    I recently made a quilt for a Raider's fan so let me mention his team colors here. Grey and black! I used black and grey plaids of woven cotton that felt like wool and threw in red because he's also a fireman :=)

  4. Tough one! I grew up in Nebraska so I gues I should say red and white (also the colors of my college which is now, sadly, closed). But my son went to the Univ of Miami, so orange and green are favorites too.

  5. OMG! I love the Argyle Sox quilt! I have not purchased the diamond templates yet so it would be amazing it win them. I'm an Indiana girl so IU & Purdue are favorites around these parts. Gold & Black or Red & White? Both would work well in this quilt. With cozy cool weather fast approaching I can't wait to dig into Clara's Garden quilt. I took the class back in the Spring in Pigeon Forge but still haven't completed it.

  8. Those argyles do look cozy! If I were to do team colors, they would be burgundy and gold. Go Redskins!

  9. In Montana the UM Grizzlies rock. In 1893 the colors were silver, gold and copper honoring the ores mined in the state. This lasted until 1995 when the Griz won the NCAA Division Championship. The spirit colors are maroon and silver.
    The deep reds in the KT's collections will work well in any of the new patterns.

  13. Well technically it should be blue and orange but I am not an orange fan! Ha Ha So I would love to make this in Brown and red! Maybe to curl up and watch the blue and orange play! :)

  14. Not into sport teams as all so "MY" team would have "Christmas Cactus" and a deep red. Love that argyle style.

  15. I think my favorite team colors are red and white--our daughter's college softball colors. Or the Phillies--either one.

  16. I don't have a team that I follow, but conveniently the MN Twins have red and blue which I love with cream--or the tan you used for the table runner. Hope you have great weather for the beach!
