20 Years of KTQ, Part II can't believe I've been designing fabric for Moda for almost 20 years! My first International Quilt Market in Houston in the fall of 1999 found me next to the Moda booth with my Stitches on the Oregon Trail block-of-the-month quilt. It was a surreal experience being there with designers whose fabric I loved (and purchased) like Sandy Gervais, Jan Patek and Barbara Brackman/Terry Clothier Thompson. It was liking being backstage at a rock concert! I was thrilled to part of this elite club of designers.
To celebrate my 10th year with Moda, I designed a quilt called Kansas Troubles, 10 Years & Counting. It featured a block or applique design for each of the 32 fabric lines to date. So much fun to sew the memories!

Now, to celebrate my 20th anniversary with Moda, another Block-of-the-Month seemed like the perfect tribute. Here's my new 20 Years of KTQ, ready to show at quilt market this week. This 118" square king size quilt features 20 blocks - one for each year. Each block helps tell the story of my journey with Moda, designing fabric and quilts through the years.
There were so many fun blocks to play with, I also included several bonus projects in the block-of-the-month (also available as a single pattern). Here is my Woven Dreams lap quilt pieced with a KT Milestones Jelly Roll.
Watch for more projects featuring the new Milestones fabric collection. Ask your local quilt shop for information on the 20 Years of KTQ Block-of-the-Month beginning January 2020.
