KT Winners

Congratulations to the winners of our KT giveaways!

The winner of (4) Sweet Holly Christmas patterns is...

 Judi Smith - My LQS always has a Christmas in July event! They have lots of new fabric lines, patterns, samples and little make and takes. It’s always so much fun that it gets me in the mood for Christmas sewing. But this year I think “Evergreen” is going to be top on my list! 

The winner of a Sweet Holly charm and mini charm pack is... 

Bonita - I am using from my stash and loving it. I would go to my local quilt store if in need of something. I am not ready to attend a retreat in the near future. I understand the Wisconsin Quilt Expo in September will be virtual this year so if they don't think we are ready for large crowds I am ok with that.
Judi and Bonita, please email me at with your mailing address to claim your goodies. Robert will ship them out as soon as possible.

I hope you checked out all the Moda designers' videos posted on the Moda Cutting Table Blog from May 1-16th with the upcoming fabric lines arriving at stores in May and June. Mine was posted the 16th, introducing Sweet Holly. It's the first video Robert and I (along with our director, Aleece) have done ourselves. I hope to do more in the future, utilizing all we've learned.

What do you like to see in a video? A short overview or more explanation? I'd like to know your thoughts as we work on more virtual fabric introductions this year.  

I loved hearing from all of you that responded to my informal poll. I'm happy to hear you're utilizing your stashes, but please keep your local quilt shops in mind, too. Small businesses are struggling trying to make it through this financially uncertain time and your support is vital for their future success. If you want a quilt shop in your area to stay open, please check with them before ordering from a big box store online. 
Unfortunately, I think the health and safety forecast for this summer is still so uncertain that a large gathering of quilters is not a good idea. I'm glad to hear most of you are willing to make the sacrifice to stay home and stay safe. as well. We'll all get together and party even bigger next year!  

Watch my blog over the next few weeks for lots of Sweet Holly previews. See the fabric & projects and, of course, more giveaways. Anyone up for another quilt-a-long this summer?


  1. I really enjoyed the Star Cluster quilt along. Even though I was not able to start it yet I did read through the post each week. Was wondering if you would consider doing the same for the Quilt kit program? If you did them after the kits were offered to the public that would be great also.

  2. I love the quilt alongs. I am still a bit behind on Star Cluster but further than I would have been without there being a quilt along! My friend in Arizona is also working on it so we are having a great time exchanging texts and pics of our progress. I have a pre-order in for all of the new Sweet Holly kits - so looking forward to receiving!
