August Winner

Cooper chose a number this weekend for the August giveaway - a KT Fav Jelly Roll - and "lips" was the winner! Congrats and thanks for everyone's comments about their favorite KT lines and the reasons why. It always helps to have constructive input.

Had a question previously about how I chose the blocks for the anniversary BOM. Let me tell you, it wasn't easy. Some were taken directly from a favorite quilt from the particular fabric line, others an applique used on a quilt and some were inspired by the fabric motifs. There are about 22 pieced blocks with 11 appliques for a total of 33. We're still trying to decide which bonus projects to include from earlier books. Any requests? I have always loved the quilt As the Wind Blows from Kansas/Oregon Quilt Connection so will certainly include that one. Otherwise, we're open to suggestions. Time is running out, so help - please! Waiting on the final border fabric for the BOM, then will post a pic before it goes to the quilter.

Packing the car for a trip to Spearfish, SD this weekend to teach at a retreat with 60 quilters hosted by Dakota Quilt Co. It promises to be great fun with a Thursday night pj party to kick it off. Better dig out my winter jammies - it might be a bit cooler up north.

Thanks for stopping by,
