Its Still June......

And I did get an eagle kit 
ready for the 4th.
Well, since I'm pretty busy designing
quilts for my next fabric line 
Clover Meadow, what I 


did was do an old favorite in new fabric.
This is Let Freedom Ring - 2019
and you can get the kit by clicking here.
You can at least get the top done by the 4th
and we seem to have a 4th of July every year 
so you're set.  :)


And since our website decided to go
on the fritz last week and tell people we didn't ship 
to Colorado or Wyoming or New York 
or wherever (Aargh!) I decided to leave Cabin
in the Pines on Sale for another week too.

Have fun ladies and
Keep Quilting.

Good Heavens - It's June

Spring Market is over
and in case you can't tell I came 
home to plunge straight into designing
quilts for my latest fabric line
Clover Meadow.

Which is why I haven't 
been blogging lately.

But it is June and July follows June
so lets get ready for the 4th.


Our book special this month is Liberty Garden -
with patterns for 9 quilts and


wallhangings with a patriotic theme.


You can order your copy by clicking here.



Our Deal of the Week is the 
Cabin in the Pines BOM for half price.
You can buy it by clicking here.

Come back next Blockheads Wednesday 
(no- we're not doing another Blockheads quilt
as far as I know but as one of the original 8, 
Wednesday will always be Blockheads Day to me).

Anyway, I'll see if I can find an Eagle Quilt Kit 
to ease us into the 4th.

Keep quilting ladies.

Day 11 - Final Quilts of Tabletop Turnabouts

The winner of the signed copy of
Tabletop Turnabouts from
the Midnight Serenade post is
Marsha B who said
"I can't wait for the book to come out,
everything in it is so adorable."


Well thank you Marsha.
And thanks to all who have taken
the time and energy to comment.

And I'm sorry there has been a lag 
between some of the posts.
But......
1) It's almost time for Market which
means we are busy, busy, busy
and
2) I got the scans of the fabric for
my next line and started designing quilts.

Once I start designing a quilt it kind of
takes over and doesn't let go until
the quilt is at least resolved in my mind.
It doesn't have to be finished but I
need to know that it's going to work.

So Marsha, will you please email Tammy 
your snail mail address and and she will send 
your signed copy of the book.

Now for this week, make a comment and this time 
the random number generator will pick someone to win
  a Table Stand.

And thanks for coming along with 
Martingale and me on this
journey through the quilts in
Tabletop Turnabouts.

Keep quilting ladies.  :)

Day 7 of Tabletop Turnabouts

The page from Tabletop Turnabouts
for today features my little quilt
Acorn Lane


Right now I think we're all very
appreciative of Spring with it's
warmer weather after the harsh winter.

Normally, however, Fall is my favorite
time of the year.  Squirrels scurry to 
bury acorns to savor during 
the long winter months.
Pumpkins, crisp days and nights and 
beautiful leaves are just a few of
the pleasures to be enjoyed each Fall.  

The winner of the fabric scrap bag and 
magnetic pincushion from Down by the Sea 
is Susie H. who is a Pisces girl with a special 
affection for whales.

Ladies from Tennessee & Day 6 from Tabletop Turnabouts

Yesterday we had a visit 
from a very nice group of ladies,
mostly from Tennessee with one or two 
from Georgia and I think there was 1 from Ohio.


I believe their common bond was originally 
doing a Sew Along with my book Homespun Hearth.
They called a couple of months ago to
see if they could come by.
We spent 2 or 3 enjoyable hours 
chatting and sewing and shopping.
Altogether a great group of ladies.
Thanks again for coming.  :)

The page from Tabletop Turnabouts
for today features my little quilt
Down by the Sea.


I just love whales - they are such awesome creatures
and we all need to work together to make sure
they are around for future generations to see.

We have a winner from 2 weeks ago
 of the scrap bag and Clover thimble.  It is Sheila S
who said "Oh my Gosh - Happy little quilts, 
They make me feel happy inside.".

Sheila, please email Tammie your snail 
mail address and she will mail you 
your fabric and thimble.  

Now for this week, make a comment and this time 
the prize will be a mixed scrap bag 
(all pieces at least 2" wide) of 
Sweet Violet and Lilac Ridge
and a magnetic pincushion.
Fabric and something to help sew it with.

Sweet Lady Liberty

 Front


and back.


As most of you know by now, 
I'm partial to Americana.

- - Love the big stars Martingale used.
I'm also pretty partial to stars.. :)

And we have a winner from last week's post.
It was Susie H. who said
Fresh colors for a fresh start + SPRING.💗

Susie, if you will email your snail mail information 
to Tammie at janpatekquiltsinc@gmail.com
she'll send you your mini charm and needles.

That was so much fun, I think we'll do it 
for every Tabletop Turnabouts post.
Make a comment and this time 
(and maybe from now on) 
the prize will be a scrap bag of 
Sweet Violet or Lilac Ridge
and a marking pencil or needles or a thimble.  
You get the idea - fabric and something to sew it with.

Have a very good Easter with family & friends. 
See you Monday & 
Keep quilting ladies.

Day #2 of Table Turnabouts

Sneak peek of the pages from the Garden House quilt.


Martingale does such an awesome job
with the photography and patterns.


I'd love to have a fence that color :)

The fabric is my "Garden House" line and it
really goes well with their fence, doesn't it.
I knew that, of course, when I designed
the line.  ----- Not :)

After I've posted all ten different little  quilts, 
we'll have a drawing for a free signed book.
Meantime lets have some smaller give-aways.
Make a comment, any old comment and 
I'll have the Random Number Generator 
pick one to send a free Garden House Mini Charm 
and a package of Milliner needles.

Good luck and see you tomorrow 
for another sneak peek at the book.

And
As Always
Keep Quilting!

Tabletop Turnabouts (a new Martingale book) & Lets get ready for Memorial Day

It seems really strange not 
to be posting a Moda Blockhead -
I've been doing that on Wednesday
for the last 2 years. 


Instead, for the next 10 weekdays
I'm going to post a page from my
new book Tabletop Turnabouts,
published in their usual excellent 
manner by Martingale.


The little quilts 12" x 25" are made
to hang over a table stand - or anything 
else you have handy to hang them on.


One side has a 12" block and the other
side has four 6" blocks.
The book is due to be released soon and will 
be available at quilt shops, at shopmartingale.com 
and in our store.

When I've posted the last page, 
we'll have a drawing for a free book.

AND
since it is finally Spring and warm
weather we have Memorial Day and
July 4th to get ready for.


To help out we've put our American Pride quilt kit
- one of my favorites - 
on sale as our Deal of the week - 25% off. 
To go to the store to get your click here.

Have a good week ladies and
as always
Keep Quilting:)

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.
