KT WinnerCongratulations to our winner of last week's U-Pick Flowers charm pattern & charm pack -
Sharilovessewing-Talk about crazy weather, 20" of snow in two days here!!! Your giveaway would put a wonderful touch of spring in our home and my heart. I'm keeping my fingers crossed you pick me.
From your comments, we're all ready for spring to arrive. It's ironic that my spring fabric seems to show up on a cold & dreary day when I've had about enough of winter, and the fall fabric appears on one of the last hot & humid days in September, when I'm ready for a break from the heat. I always see it as a sign that the seasons will change, I just need to be patient (not my strong suit). If you'd like a reminder that the newest fabric is just around the corner, join our KT Collector's Club. For just $25/3 times a year, you'll receive the latest KT fabric in your mailbox - 6 fat quarters, a KT mini charm and the new charm pattern. It's a little bit of spring, or fall, or Christmas, or flannel to inspire and lift your spirits. Call the KT Quilt Shop to sign up at 785-488-2120.

Country Road FlannelsI LOVE FLANNEL! I don't mean to shout, but I am truly addicted to the yummy softness of Moda's flannels. This year, instead of a Christmas line, I was able to create a collection of 40 snuggly, cuddly flannels in KT's warm, cozy colors and prints - PLUS 108" wide backing! That's wonderful news for those of us who love flannel on the back of cotton lap quilts, not just flannel quilts. My kids and grankids request flannel over any other fabric for their quilts. Their favorites are quilts with no batting, just two layers - the pieced front and flannel backing. It makes the quilt huggable without being heavy.
For this collection, I envisioned a super fast & easy lap quilt featuring a star in colors for every season - Flannel Days, Starry Nights. There's a color combo for everyone on your list.
Country Road Flannels are shipping to quilt shops in July. Check with your local shop now and pre-order your favorite quilt. They stitch up with traditional piecing in a weekend so you can make several for Christmas gifts.
