In our little burg, the entire grade school visits the downtown merchants on Halloween morning dressed in their spooky attire. We love it! Instead of candy, we gave out orange and black friendship bracelets, rubber jump-y spiders and googly-eyes stickers. Too fun!
Tokens of Friendship
We're home again after Fall Quilt Market in Houston. Moda showed our new Token of Friendship fabric collection and we displayed the projects made from that line - a sweet little autograph quilt called Best Friends (on the end of the table) and a large king quilt with a handful of options named Tokens of Friendship (on the left wall).
|From this angle, you can see our ktquilts.com sign embellished with buttons, buckles, safety pins and |
a zipper that I made for Moda's Schoolhouse, Spell it Out. Watch for the spring designer blog hop
for lots of free patterns and giveaways.
|To the right is the Eye of the Storm, Windmills on the Plains and KT Shining Stars, all made with precuts from the |
KT Favorites II collection, due in quilt shops in December. On the take are the 2 Honeycomb lap quilt featuring a
Layer Cake and Honeycomb using our layered patchwork method and our new KT Honeycomb ruler.
|Here are the Fat Quarter Shop girls visitng about the new tutorial video we shot at market showing my layered patchwork technique. Watch for it at fatquartershop.com. The quilt behind me is the Tokens of Friendship |
king quilt. The basket wall quilt and star runner plus 2 pillow toppers, a lap quilt and more are included in
this booklet. Available in March 2014.
