KT WinnerCongratulations to our winner this week:
Happy New Year!Thanks to all of you for your support and kind words throughout 2016. We at KTQ are looking forward to a fresh, new 2017 with a few surprises up our sleeves. Watch for the first of several fun announcements in February!
I welcomed the New Year on a high note with 4 of the grankids while their parents enjoyed a little party time. It's the first year the twins have lived a state apart so it was good for all the siblings to catch up and celebrate together.
The pre-teen grankids weren't crazy about having their pics taken for Gramma's blog, so they went incognito as Party Animals. I purchased the masks in a pack at World Market and downloaded the Party Animal app on my phone. When the kids put on the masks and I used my camera to take a picture, the masks turned into this! Too funny!
It only seemed to work if I was about 2 feet away from the subject (probably user error). I wish I could have stood back further to get all of them in the same picture. Still made for alot of laughs. Believe me, the sound effects were priceless! Always entertaining when they're all together.
KT January SpecialWe're offering our KT Classic Plaids this month at an unbeatable deal of $6.95/yd. to add to your stash for the new year (sold on our website in 1/2 yard increments for $3.98). I love mixing my brushed woven plaids with prints to inject some geometric interest. It also helps add some masculinity (think plaid work shirt) to a guy quilt. Since the brushed plaids are woven, both sides are the same. I use the green plaids ALOT for leaves and stems in appliques. When the edges curl, the back side of the leaf is the same as the front. Very cool look. The plaids also work well for any layered patchwork project. The bias edges softly curl to give your quilt dimension and a primitive effect. We just found out these plaids will be discontinued by Moda, so quantities are limited. Stock up today!
Tell me about your wish/plan for the New Year - do you want to learn a new quilting technique? Sky dive? Travel? Comment to win a KT Classic Plaid scrap bag. There are plenty of pieces for accents on some of our favorite Mini Table Treats.
