KT's 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways - Day 12

KT Winner Day 11

Congrats to
Donna W -Fantastic patterns. Thanks for the chance to win them.

You're the winner of our Day 11 giveaway - the Paisley Park collection of patterns. Please send your mailing address to lynne@ktquilts.com and we'll send out your goodies soon.

12 Days of Christmas Giveaway - Day 12

Our giveaway for Day 12 is our brand new Clara's Garden booklet & Seedlings charm pattern. Clara's Garden fabric collection is due in quilt shops next month for a bright beginning to the new year. I love the way the floral prints and rich hues play so well together. This line is in honor of my great-grandmother who was a master gardener and rug hooker. One of the rugs we found in my Gramma's collection was the circular motif, so marrying the floral applique with the illusion of circles was the perfect tribute to an amazing woman. All 5 projects are in our Clara's Garden booklet. 



 

Our charm pattern for Clara's Garden is the Seedlings Runner & mini charm pillow sleeve. I've become addicted to making these pillow sleeves to slide on and off of a rectangular lumbar pillow. This shape works best for me when binding or hand-stitching in my comfy chair. I love the convenience of being able to swap out seasonal sleeves in a snap. We have a melon-shaped template available in both sizes coming soon!


Comment here by 10pm CST tonight to win both of these KT patterns. It's not too late to be a winner!

KT's 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway - Day 11

KT Winner Day 10

Congrats to
Vicki in MN -Oh I love your Barn Raising quilt-oh I would love to have that!

You're the winner of our Day 10  giveaway - KS Dugout and KT Barn Raising patterns. Please send your mailing address to lynne@ktquilts.com and we'll send out your goodies soon.

12 Days of Christmas Giveaway - Day 11

Our giveaway for Day 11 is a trio of patterns featuring the Paisley Park fabric collection.The great prints and colors of this line make it one of my all-time favorites. The easy layered patchwork makes the projects so easy to make! You'll never cut off star points again with our Perfectly Paisley star lap quilt. Rectangles and squares are cut diagonally to create triangles that are layered and topstitched on a larger background rectangle. Looks difficult, but really, I made it so it can't be that hard!


Prim Pinwheels utilizes a Jelly Roll to make spinning double pinwheels with layered triangles. Who'd guess you started with a precut and 3 fabrics?

Paisley Party is just that - a party in a Jelly Roll! Make 2 runners and a pillow sleeve from one Jelly Roll. Tans stitched together in long strips create the background for some bloomin' paisleys take directly from the fabric print. Assorted dark strips sewn horizontally showcase the beautiful colors of the line. Use any appliques you like, or none at all and let your centerpiece shine! With a few odds and ends of JR strips leftover, I couldn't resist whipping up a pillow sleeve that can be easily changed when the season - or your mood - changes. All three projects are in the pattern. Any JR works!



Just one more chance to win after today, so don't delay!

KT's 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway - Day 10

KT Winner Day 9

Congrats to squirrelie55.
You're the winner of our Day 9 giveaway - KT's Layers of Love book. Please send your mailing address to lynne@ktquilts.com and we'll send out your goodies soon.

12 Days of Christmas Giveaway - Day 10

Our giveaway for Day 10 is a duo of new patterns featuring our KT Favorites collection, now arriving in quilt shops. Moda selected 20 of the 39 prints to double up in precuts for our first ever Favorites Layer Cakes, Charms and Jelly Rolls. Our Barn Raising quilt features the KT Five & Dime Ruler to make one simple block with a Layer Cake & Charm that can be arranged a dozen different ways. We give you 4 in the pattern to get you started. My favorite is the Barn Raising setting.


KT Dugout uses a Jelly Roll to good advantage, adding layered triangles to the corners of strips. With almost half tans/half darks in this collection of precuts, it's been fun playing with all the options. You can play, too, with these two patterns to inspire you.

KT's 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways - Day 9

KT Winner Day 8

Congrats to
Evie Christner - Quilts and antiques are a perfect combo.

You're the winner of our Day 8 giveaway - a bevy of autumn patterns. Please send your mailing address to lynne@ktquilts.com and we'll send out your goodies soon.

12 Days of Christmas Giveaway - Day 9

Our giveaway for Day 9 is our Layers of Love book. Now is the time to embrace precuts and our layered patchwork technique for fast & simple quilts for everyone in your life. The "Layers" part of the title refers to our unique method of layering squares, triangles and precuts over background squares and topstitching close to the raw edges. This technique not only eliminates bulky seams by simplifying traditional quilt blocks, but creates a fun, dimensional look, as well. The "Love" part is all about the grankids. It was so much fun to design a quilt for each of our 8 grankids with their personalities and hobbies in mind.

One of the favorites is Delainey's Twirls & Swirls. This delightful pinwheel quilt uses just one charm pack plus 2 fabrics for background and border. It's pieced with just one block - a square with 2 different sized triangles stitched on top. In all the classes I've taught, there isn't one color combo that wasn't twirly & swirly!

I love it in classic KT colors, of course, but the brights just make me smile! A charm makes a 72" sq. quilt, but it's easily made smaller for a baby quilt. Add buttons for even more dimension.





There are more than a dozen other projects in the book using the same method of layered patchwork to create stars, hex's, runners and more! Comment by 10pm CST tonight to win this book -and a bit of fun to go along with it!

KT's 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways - Day 8

KT Winner Day 7

Congrats to Sandy Allen -
I love watching Fixer Upper! It is so neat seeing how the houses look when they are done.
Cattails hold a special memory for me. My grandma would always have some in a vase. 

She often stopped and picked them on the side of the road.


You're the winner of our Day 7 giveaway - a stack of autumn patterns. Please send your mailing address to lynne@ktquilts.com and we'll send out your goodies soon.

12 Days of Christmas Giveaway - Day 8

Our giveaway for Day 8 is another trio of fall favorites - Cattails runner, Prairie Medley charm pattern and Mini Pumpkins Mini Table Treat. I found the reproduction feed sack on a recent trip to market when I stopped to shop in Spring, TX. The handmade pottery bowl's design is made with vintage lace - awesome! I enjoy traveling around the country to visit quilters and quilt shops, but the shopping trips on the side often yield some my greatest finds.


Comment by 10pm tonight to win this assortment of patterns - plus, a bag of scraps leftover from a recent project. I just can't keep it all!

The leaves, the acorns, the changing colors, the nip in the air. It's all so inspiring to me. I always include warm fall tones of pumpkin & brown along with classic KT reds, greens, blues, golds & tans in my fall fabric collections. If you love pumpkins and acorns as much as I do, watch for the newest KT line each fall.



I found this great metal wreath with clips at Magnolia in Waco, TX. If you watch HGTV like Robert and I do, you've seen Chip and Joanna Gaines in their home remodeling show, Fixer Upper. Magnolia is their home dec/antiques shop. So much good stuff! Check it out if you're ever in the area.
