More On Meadowlark Pond

KT Winner

Congratulations to the winner of our KT fat quarter 8-pack!

T Holzer - I don't have a whole lot of fat quarters, but when I visit a quilt shop and I'm not really "buying" that day, I try to buy 4 FQs to support the store. I just buy what I love so I have the most KT FQs! When I get home, I fold them all the same...quartered both width and length wise and then they get stored according to colour. They are all stacked in a glass curio cabinet and I can always see what I have. But the bad thing for me and FQs is that once I buy them, I don't want to sew with them!!! I want to collect and keep them!!! Thanks so much for this chance.
Thanks for commenting. I totally agree with you - it's hard to cut into fat quarters. They look so good all tied up in stacks! I save a fat quarter bundle of each fabric line I design and swear I won't cut into them - no matter what. Just a few have a small square out of one corner when I was desperate. Maybe I need to save two fat quarter bundles!


I didn't have a chance to post while we were traveling, so we also have a winner of the new Meadowlark's Song pattern. Congrats to:
 Lorna Weber - The new pattern is lovely. It showcases your new fabrics perfectly. I will be looking for these locally in the next few weeks. Thanks for sharing.

Please send your shipping address to lynne@ktquilts.com and Robert will send it right out. Enjoy your pattern and check out the other designs available below.




On Meadowlark Pond is almost here!

We're rather impatiently waiting for my new spring collection, On Meadowlark Pond, to arrive. The weather in Kansas is still cold and icy, but I'm ready for some spring sewing, how about you?

The Meadowlark's Song quilt is shown above, featuring a Layer Cake and traditional piecing instructions. I also designed a Jelly Roll project called Bird Watching that can be made using my Layered Patchwork technique or traditional piecing in scrappy or red colorways.

Our charm pattern for this line is Meadowlark Baskets. Cute little baskets traditionally pieced sport fused bias handles for easier construction. A charm plus a few fabrics is all you need to have a spring-y accent for your home.


If you want to be one of the first on your block to get a piece of On Meadowlark Pond, join our KT Collector's Club. You'll receive 6 fat quarters of assorted colors and prints from the collection, a mini charm pack, and the charm pattern for only $25 postage paid (that's a $28.50 value!). We're assembling our club packs now, so call the store and sign up today! 785-488-2120

Comment to win a charm pack and the new Meadowlark Baskets pattern. Share with us your thoughts on precuts such as charms, Layer Cakes and Jelly Rolls - love them? collect them? search for patterns especially for them? I'd love to hear from you.

  1. I love using precuts, but...I don’t find many patterns that I absolutely love to use them in. Your basket quilt is CUTE!

  2. I love the new basket pattern!! I enjoy precuts, so pretty to look at. I don't use them probably as much as I should because they are so pretty to look at in their neat packaging.

  3. Loved your workshop and trunk show. Your fabrics are my fabrics, so yes, I'd love to win.

  4. I especially like the charm packs. I have seen several patters using these cuts. The basket pattern is really nice.

  5. I love precuts, especially charms and layer cakes. You get a sample of each fabric and, depending on the pattern you are using, some of the cutting is already done for you!

  6. I have been holding out for your Meadowlark collection to make a special quilt, so happy it’s coming soon.
    As for precuts, my first attempt at making a quilt to see if I could even do it was using a jelly roll...I could, and I was hooked! I jumped right into quilting ( had no idea of the magnitude of the industry even with being a sewer), but I’ve been cutting and piecing fabric or FQ’s since. I didn’t realize how versatile jelly rolls were until I saw your Birdwatching pattern. I’ll have to look for some patterns designed specifically for certain precuts. Thanks for a chance to win and for the new perspective :)
    Now to buy some of those tone on tone FQs....yay!

  7. Charm packs are my 'go to' pre-cuts especially for baby quilts. Love layer cakes, too. Always amazed at how much fabric there is in a layer cake.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I find charm packs and layer cakes very useful but not so much jelly rolls. So often quilt patterns have pieces larger than 2 1/2 inches. Meadowlark Pond is beautiful and a charm pack would be lovely to win!

  9. I love precuts, with the jelly roll being my favorite. Probably because the very first quilt I made was with a jelly roll. I have a stash of all precuts that are aging for future use.

  10. Love thumbing through charm packs & layer cakes to see all of the fabrics in a line. I always look at layer cakes as getting 4 charm packs. Using the mini charms means all those little squares are already cut for you. Your basket quilt is interesting in the placements of the baskets & yea fusible handles.

  13. Yes, I too enjoy the precuts.

  14. I have loved charms for a long time & now I love layer cakes! It is hard to cut into a layer cake tho :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh, I can't wait for this new collection! I have loved precuts since they came on the scene. I thought they were the greatest ting ever! I especially love charm packs.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I absolutely love basket quilts and your Meadowlark Basket pattern is adorable! I seem to collect pre-cuts and love to look at them especially. I have no problem cutting into fat quarters or charms but am always reluctant to cut into layer cakes or jelly rolls. They look so nice just the way they are.

  17. Your quilt is so beautiful! I love love love precuts, all of them. Enjoy your day! :-) :-) angielovesgary2 atgmail dotcom

  18. I love the new line! I love all precuts. I pet them, stack them and sometimes I even make quilts out of them.

    ReplyDelete
  19. The Meadowlark quilts are beautiful -- lovely spring colors! My collection of precuts is growing, mostly because I don't have enough time to sew.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm never disappointed with your fabric lines!!! I've been using my KT stash for the Blockheads, so I'm looking at them everyday as I try to get caught up in this "lovely" weather.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I am a fan of precuts and have collected many patterns for using them.
    I find they make great quilts for gifts. I love the color range in your new fabric line.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Meadowlark Baskets is an adorable pattern and the fabrics are gorgeous. I love your colors so much. Thanks for a chance to win!

  23. I like the precuts and I do buy (lots of) them. I don't always have a pattern in mind when I see fabric I really like but if I buy a precut or two and some yardage, it's a kit waiting for a pattern. I'm really liking the Bird Watching pattern so it's a good thing I have some KT jelly rolls on hand.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm not a fan of precuts mainly because I like to starch my fabrics and shrinking always occurs. I prefer to buy fat quarters or yardage, wash, and starch. I do search for patterns that use precuts as I cut my scraps into those sizes. Love the basket quilt! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I buy lots of pre-cuts because they are so cute, but they are hard to take apart and use because of that!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have bought and sewed up a lot of layer cakes. I'm kind of on to fat quarter bundles is I can afford them. Jelly rolls aren't really a favorite but I just used up three charm packs I had saved and made a fun quilt. I love your Meadowlark's Song quilt the best!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have a basket quilt on my "to do" list and this just may be the one!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love your basket quilt! I do "collect" precuts. Like use use charm squares in table toppers and layer cakes and jelly rolls in larger quilts.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love precuts, especially the charm squares. You see I can have a little dab of every fabric:). I do need to start using my "collection". Looking for patterns.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I like precuts because a scrappy quilt can easily be created. I do look for patterns that use precuts. I tend to buy Charms, Jelly Rolls & Layer Cakes and sometimes I buy FQ bundles. I love the Bird Watching quilt and Meadowlark Baskets.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I generally buy a lot of fat quarters to have a good variety of colors. Mostly Kansas Troubles when I can find them. They are my favorites! Jelly rolls are my 2nd choice.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I got the Meadowlark's Song when you were in Tennessee! Waiting NOT so patiently for the fabric...I'll be ready to start as soon as the fabric is available.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I like precuts in that you can get several different fabrics in smaller amounts, but I still prefer yardage.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Precuts are fun as so much of the cutting for a project is already done for you. I think I have used strips from jelly rolls the most, but the charm pack is great to make a quick baby quilt from. Like you I have also 'saved' many precuts in their 'original' form as they look so perfect on the shelf all wrapped up. Your new line does look like one of these! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I like layer cakes as they are more versatile than the strips. I also have had trouble with charms being irregular in cut so I won't get them any more. The Meadowlarks Song pattern is really nice, but the baskets are lovely too!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm a collector. I love having them handy to select fabrics I want to use in projects. And the charms and minis are fabulous for using to make scrap type patterns. I'm currently using your charms in a project with pieced baskets. No two alike! Love the new baskets.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I mostly work with charm packs. Have not found patterns I like for jelly rolls.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I really love to pick out my own fabrics but I always have some precuts on hand for in-between projects—and sometimes I’m just really drawn to the entire line of fabrics and a selection of precuts gives me that “fix”. If I had to pick a fav, I’m kind of into jelly rolls right now but at any given time I have a couple sets of precuts in every “size”.

    ReplyDelete
  39. beautiful as usual. I love precuts and I have so many you could say I collect them to. Thanks for your talent. Jenellejb(at)aol(dot)com.

  40. I love precuts! I buy them and then save them and admire them until they are perfectly aged. Then I find the perfect pattern to use them in. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I do all three -- love them, collect them, and look for perfect patterns for them. Beautiful new fabric and patterns! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  42. LOVE your Bird Watching pattern ... will have to see where to get that! Precuts? When they first came out I was reluctant to purchase because of price and also wasn't sure what I could do with them. The pendulum has swung the other way ... instead of yardage I will purchase precuts hands down ... SO many patterns are out now and they are fun to sew. Since cutting is my LEAST favorite part of quilting these make quilting even more fun for me! Linda

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love precuts and seem to collect them more often than I use them. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  44. Charm packs are my fave! They're small and stacked easily, and not to mention they are super easy to flip through and look at all the patterns. I especially love that they already have pinked edges so its easier to sew using your layered patchwork technique!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love all pre-cuts, saves so much time, I hate having to cut everything I would much rather be sewing. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I have liked and utilized pre-cuts since they have come on the market. I have collected mainly charm packs and a few layer cakes, but don't appear to have any jelly rolls. Your bird watching pattern may change that.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love working with precuts! There is one bad thing about them, though - they (all of them) are quite addicting!!!😊

    ReplyDelete
  48. I do love precuts as I work so many hrs it lets me get right to the fun part. Charms are great as I love to see what is in the entire line in one little package!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love, love, love precuts. Whether it's a jelly roll, charm pack, layer cakes or the sweet treats. Having patterns that are especially tailored to make with them is the best!! I enjoy selecting and coordinating fabrics but there is something special about having the whole line in one bundle!! I'm really excited about the new KT line "On Meadowlark Pond". I am so ready for Spring and the beautiful fabric to come. At the June Retreat will we see some of your other new lines of fabric in the works?

  50. I love precuts but I have such a hard time figuring out which pattern to use with my precuts. Love the On Meadowlark Pond fabric.

  51. I love precuts and the mini charm packs are like candy! I can never buy just one!
