I'm Back

Hello Ladies!
I know it's been dead quiet here, but I'm finally back on my feet after one heck of a migraine last week. I was just telling Robert and Lois that we were pretty much caught up and on track before heading out for a month of speaking/teaching engagements in March. That must have been what caused it. Never again will I announce when I'm feeling like I'm ahead of schedule. It doesn't pay!

Anyway,this week we're finishing up the latest KT Stash Society projects for the summer months and having photos taken this week of the Wrapped in Paisley quilts. I'll post pics later this week. We're really excited about our (non)Christmas line this year and hope you love it, too. It should be hitting the quilt shops in May - just about the time you'll be thinking about Christmas!!!

You still have time to sign up to win the February Giveaway - 6 Mini Table Treats Patterns! I'll be gone all weekend, so the winner will be announced Monday, March 1st.

More about Mini Table Treats

One of the comments here requested more info about the picture of the workshop ladies with their Mini Table Treats projects. On our website - - we have 6 patterns for $4 each for these 17" table toppers that are fun and easy to make. Just layer a fat quarter backing, batting and a 17" circle background with another smaller circle; crosshatch quilt the whole thing. That's the foundation for your chosen applique whether it's Christmas lights, flowers, acorns, etc. The ladies are usually done in about 3 hours, stitching on binding. It's a fun way to try raw edge applique with little investment of time or money but many quilters find they want to make more for fast and simple gifts. We have several new projects coming out for market in the spring. I'll keep you updated.

The February Giveaway is one of each of the 6 Mini Table Treats patterns. If you're interested, please reply!
