KT&Friends Retreats 2022

It's time to make plans to attend our KT&Friends Retreats this summer! 

We have two great locations for you to choose from:

    Bennington, Kansas, home of Kansas Troubles Quilters - June 21-23

    Longmont, Colorado - July 25-27

Grab a friend and spend three days with me and my designer friends quilting, sharing and making memories. 

Debbie Maddy will be teaching again this year with her Swallows quilt. Her quilts and teaching style were a big hit last year and we look forward to learning from her again. 

Dawn Heese is new to our retreats this year. She will be sharing her love of all things cotton and wool with her Cut Once mini quilt, designed especially for this year's retreat theme. 

We can't wait to meet you - or see you again!

KT November Special

Homespun Stars

We've waited for my Homemade Homespuns line since it's anticipated arrival date in July. I'm loving all the cozy fall feels of anything made with these yarn-dyed brushed cotton stripes and plaids. So this month, we'll continue with the theme from October and offer the Homespun Stars kit+pattern as our KT November Special. 


Homespun Stars starts with the scrappiness of a Homemade Homespuns Layer Cake for a slice of the entire collection. Add in the perfect cream background and green plaid border to make every color pop! The Homespun Stars lap quilt (74"sq.) kit includes a Layer Cake plus fabric for quilt top and binding plus pattern for only $99 plus FREE SHIPPING (retail value of over $130 w/ship). Find the KT November Special HERE.

This is overwhelmingly one of the most asked for quilts by all ages in my family. It's the perfect gift for anyone on your list. Don't delay. Order today. Quantities are limited.

Wool & Cotton Sewcial

 Join our new Facebook group, Wool & Cotton Sewcial, for all kinds of quilting inspiration. Ten unique designers with a common love for all things warm and cozy and country have joined together to form this group. Some of us focus on wool, some on cotton fabric, most of us love both! We're here to share our ideas with you over a 10 week themed series. This is my week with a Christmas theme. 

I'll offer a different project each day for 5 days with kits available at a special price. We'll include a favorite Christmas pattern or booklet FREE with purchase. Many of these patterns/booklets are also available as PDF downloads for 30% off this week only. Find all of the Wool & Cotton Sewcial specials HERE.

Day #1 - Holiday Trio pillow - Kit +pattern $35+ $5ship

I was inspired by a bolt of cute candy cane motif fabric from my Sweet Holly fabric line from a couple years ago. By fussing cutting the candy cane, it can used as a featured little square in all kinds of Christmas fun. Today, a quilt from my KitToQuilt Mystery series, called Tree Trimming, inspired this pillow. Piece the pillow top like you would a small runner, add ties to each end, bind and tie over a covered lumbar pillow. Too cute! When you place your order for the Holiday Trio kit, you'll receive the Tree Trimming pattern FREE!

We just finished up our year long Pincushion-a-Month Club, but it's not too late to get in on the fun. Start with this adorable holiday pincushion (lower right) or use it as a bowl filler. The Stick a Pin in It booklet also includes a dozen seasonal pincushions so you're ready for any occasion.

When you order the Sweetest Gift pincushion kit, you'll also receive the Evergreen booklet with a trio of holiday projects - lap quilt, runner, pillow - FREE.
