A Little Summer Road Trip

KT Winner


The winner of our June KT Special, my KT Windmills & Fence Posts booklet PLUS a Fresh Cut Flowers Layer Cake to get started, is...

Renea -I really have a hard time making guy quilts. I tend to go to darker colors or homespuns. Would love to have some great examples of guy quilts. Thanks for the giveaway.

Thanks to all of you who commented about your experiences finding the perfect fabric/pattern for guy quilts. I'll have another good option in a couple weeks, so stay tuned. Is there anything on your mind you'd like to see here? Questions for me? Or for the quilting ladies who hang out here? I'd love to hear your suggestions.

On the Road

I'm traveling & teaching this week in Winfield and and Wichita, Kansas. Pretty close to home, but a fun break from the regular work routine. My grandaughter, Aleece, will be helping with the normal "Robert duties" like unloading the car, holding up quilts and writing up invoices. She's great with the quilters and it's helping her earn money toward a class trip to Washington, DC next school year. 

In Winfield, I'll be teaching my Mini Table Treats workshop on Monday, June 11 in the afternoon with a trunk show for their guild meeting in the evening. The Liberty MTT is just one of the options available using our KT Kut-ups precut fusible appliques. It's so fast & easy, they'll have their project ready for the 4th of July - this year!



We'll be going on to the Prairie Quilt Guild in Wichita on Tuesday, June 12 for two guild meetings, and a workshop on Wednesday. They've chosen to try out my Layered Patchwork technique in the Stacked Coins quilt from my Loose Change book. A Layer Cake, charm and mini charm are stacked, stitched and cut for my take on a simplified spool block. With so many precuts out there, I love all the possibilities!

Stacked Coins from Loose Change
Join me for one these trunk shows, if you're close. Let's talk about me visiting your quilt guild, if you're not. I have a few openings for 2019-2020. Now is the time to plan.

  3. I decorate our home with the seasons. I have made your mini table treats and like the easy process. The Liberty would look great with my red, white, and blue. Thanks for the nice give away.

  5. I like your version of the Spools pattern being Stacked Coins. When our just turned 47 year old nephew was a little boy, the one pastime that kept him busy was emptying my loose change bank for him to play with. Those coins kept him busy & he never asked to keep any. You know this could be a great 50th birthday gift for him.
