KT Scrap Bag WinnerCongrats to Jodi Connors of Mountain Gurl Quilts. You're the winner of this week's scrap bag giveaway. I have a pile ready to go, just send me your address at firstname.lastname@example.org and you can start stitching!
It's been difficult to sit at the computer, looking out my windows and not go outside to sit in the sun - so I'm not going to fight it. After all, it's a good source of Vitamin D, reduces stress, gives me a little color after a long winter and totally lifts my spirits, so it's all good. I can check out the new strike-offs, edit patterns and figure yardage for a new quilt out on the swing just as easily as inside my studio. The first tulips of spring only bloom for a short time. Don't miss a minute of it.
Token of FriendshipThe new Tokens fabric has arrived! Jamie unpacked the boxes a few days ago and made room for all the lovely shades of KT spring prints. Here's another look at the collection:
There are so many great tan prints in this one I used them alot in the Tokens projects. Simple piecing separates the tans to make the stars & pinwheels look like their floating and spinning in between. Love it! The star runner would be great for your spring table - or made up in red/tan/blue would be perfect all summer long. I've gotta try that one, too! Have a special friend you want to make a little something special? Our basket surrounded by easy layered patchwork hearts is the perfect fit.
Do you ever have enough tans? We've put together (20) of our favorite small tan prints and tone-on-tones in precuts - Jelly Rolls, Charm packs and Mini Charm packs. When added to a regular KT JR, Charm or MC, it gives you 30 each of darks and lights. It works great for those projects that require an even number of darks and lights or to make a project larger. Check it out at ktquilts.com under precuts.
The giveaway today is a Tokens of Friendship booklet and assorted fat 1/8's. You just never know what else might jump into the box! Comment about precuts - love 'em or not, don't know what to do with them, can't get enough of them - I'd love to hear from you. I'm off to WI to the Nancy's Notions Sewing Weekend May 1,2,3. Would love to meet you there. See you back here when I get home.
