2024 - 1 - New Year - New Projects

Dear friend of KISSed Quilts, 

I'm sending this January newsletter out a bit early so that you can take advantage of an offer that ends 12/31/23 read on for all the details.

Happy New Year! Were taking a bit of a break. We are closed thru January 4 and all on-line orders will ship starting January 5, 2024. Thank you for understanding. We've added a few new products--some in very limited supply!  If you're on the Product Specials email list, then you already know that the Glow Rulers arrived and we put the Christmas Fabric on 30% discount through January 4, 2024. Find out if there are any left by selecting the item above and clicking through. Did you miss out?  You can add yourself to the Product Specials email list here, so that you don't miss out in the future.

As we begin a new year, what new projects do you have going?

We're offering the Feathered Star class January 15 -- a national holiday, so if you rarely have the time to take a class, this just might be the opportunity! I've received another picture of a block from the last class --great job Linda R.

The key techniques learned here are paper piecing and how to do a partial seam.

Sign-up here. - Class fee includes printed instructions (if you don't have my book already) and the printed foundations in whatever size you'd like to make the block. Original size is 12" finished.

YARN? - I've been asked by a few people over the last couple of years --will you carry yarn in the new shop space? This is an interesting question and I'd like to know if my Newsletter subscribers would like to weigh in on this idea? Please respond if you're interested or not ...and if so what type of yarn are you most interested in having access to? Do you also need patterns? Knit? Crochet?

Quilt-a-long from Patterns by Jen - 2024 Monthly Color Challenge

I'll be the featured blogger in March, so please follow along. Get a free 12" block each month. I plan to post the block I make each month and then will show the setting at the end of the year. If interested in a bundle of fabrics that will work (moda Grunge or Northcott Toscana) --just respond to this email and we'll get it put together. There are options to consider -- light/dark color blocks or a single background and color for each block. Her color inspiration this year is tropical fish like seen in this picture. All but one block will work with 1/4 yd for each color. So, let's discuss your thoughts and I can put together just the right bundle of fabric for you.

Here are the fabrics that I have pulled --note a 'water' like background (available in my widebacks) and then some scraps of batiks that I have. So there is an other idea -- I could also pull batiks from the shop if you're interested in using them.

6 1/2" square ruler recommended - EeziGrip style available here
