Block #49, Another Sneak Peak and Hopefully jpgs of Guilds

Cups and Saucers
by Jo Morton


You can go to her blog 
to download the pattern
by clicking here.

And this is a sneak peek of the 
back of the Spring Table Stand
"Can't Wait - for Spring".
To join the club or simply put in
your order for a kit, email Tammy at
 janpatekquiltsinc@gmail.com.

Everything is a little behind this month
due to traveling - speaking - and workshops.
On Tuesday last week I gave lectures to
the Quilt Guild of Greater Kansas City, Mo. in the
morning and to the Quilt Guild of Olathe,
Kansas that evening.

Then on Wednesday I gave a workshop to members of
both guilds on the basics of Needleturn Applique.

Monday I drove to Pittsburgh, Kansas to
meet with Jan Campbell and Debbie the 
Program Chairs as well as the lovely ladies of
the Little Balkans Quilt Guild.
And for a change I remembered to ask Debbie to
take pictures for me.  I did forget, however to 
 take a picture of them.  Forgetting things
seems to be my specialty of late. Sorry ladies.


This, I'm sure you will all recognize as my 
Blockheads 1 quilt.  The Martingale books 
are out now and you can get your very own
by clicking here.  We're having a special 
introductory offer of 10%off.


And here I'm showing the ladies how
the Tablestand Quilts work - 


with a 12" block on one side and four
6" blocks on the other side.

Everyone was very gracious and I enjoyed 
my stay very much.

But now I'm back home and we can go
see what
the other designers 
have done with Jo's block -

Lynne of Kansas Troubles
Barb & Mary of Me and My Sister
Brigitte Heitland of Zen Chic
Vanessa of Lella Boutique
Betsy Chutchian
Stacy lest Hsu
Laurie Simpson of Minick & Simpson
Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life
Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings
Corey Yoder of Coriander Quilts
Carrie Nelson of Moda's Cutting Table

Have a good week ladies.

Blogger's Gadgets acting up again, Block #44 and We Have a New Mystery Quilt and it has a name........

Blogger's Gadgets are acting up again-
the image Gadget won't put up a picture 
of my Deal of the Week
So, I'll make it part of my post for awhile.


This week we have a pattern BOGO on
Lilly's Hearts Throw and the Lilly's 
Hearts Mini.
You can get them both for one price 
by clicking here.


NOW FOR MODA BLOCKHEADS 2
Block #44 is Candy Stripper
by Vanessa Goertzen.  


You can go to her blog 
to download the pattern 
by clicking here.

I loved reading all of the
names you all submitted 
for my quilt.
I wish they all could have won.


But unfortunately that's not 
the way it works.
I had to choose one and I did.
I chose "Living the Good Life"
submitted by Loretta Waterman 
on February 7th.
That name seems to sum up what I
was trying to say with the quilt, as 
 did quite a few of the other names submitted.
So Thanks to each and every one 
of you who commented
Loretta, if you will email your
snailmail address to 
janpatekquiltsinc@gmail.com
Tammy will mail you a block each month.
I hope everyone gets as much enjoyment out
of the quilt as I will.

And this is the 2019
Mystery Quilt



It is 56" x 74"

has turned into the hardest part
of designing quilts.
So again this year I'll have a
contest to see who can come up
with the name I like the most.
Just print your choice for a name for
the quilt in the comments section
and next week I'll choose one.
The winner will get all of the blocks free
so be sure to think up a good one.

AND!!!!


Be watching Moda's Blog and mine
in the next few weeks.  I'll be having
 a drawing for another free Blockheads
book when my next blocks posts
and Moda is having giveaways of
the books + designers fabric.

Block #42 - Kind of - Well really 2 somewhat versions

I think that I have made it plain over
the years that piecing is not my first choice.


One of the reason I prefer appliqué is that with
pieced blocks you have to pay too much attention -
you can't just relax and sew.

The top block is the first one I made.
The bottom block is how Carrie designed it.

You can go to Moda's blog and download
the pattern by clicking here.

It's a really neat block and I think I put mine 
together automatically -but wrong- because my way
there is a pieced star in the block.  
We all know how much I love pieced and
appliquéd stars.  
If you want to make the block my way just sew 
the top, bottom and side sections between 
the corner squares in backwards - or upside down.

And speaking of stars -

This is Star Gazing.
It's our "Deal of the Week" - The kit 
is on sale for 20% off this week.


You can go to my store to buy the kit 
by clicking here.

Then you can go see what 
the other designers 
have done with Carrie's block -

Lynne of Kansas Troubles
