Another branch of New Leaf Stitches



It’s time to let you know who the winners are from the Quiltmaker’s 100 Block Blog Tour.

First of all, I can’t apologize enough for the commenting nightmare!  Those of you who were persistent….thank you!!!!!

So that you can see how I ended up handling the situation, here are some pictures.

Whenever a comment came into my email (and Monday’s comments) I wrote the name in a notebook and then ended up cutting all the names apart (did you catch the mention of a nightmare earlier?? )   Certainly not hard…just a pain.


I pulled three names.  The first being the person who won a magazine from Quiltmaker’s.  The next two winners were for prizes from me.

So, drum roll please….

Quiltmaker’s 100 Block edition:     Beth Sanders

New Leaf Stitches (Clearly Perfect Angles and 2 patterns):


       Janet Rushant

I will need shipping information from all three of you as soon as you can.  Just email me at  kari

Because of the fiasco,  I’ve decided to extend the special pricing on the Clearly Perfect Angles.  Clicking on the picture below will take you to the website that has not only ordering information, but the videos and testimonials about the product.


And don’t forget about the free pattern for Blooming Bias Baskets!  Here’s a hint….since all the blocks in the magazine are the same size, use the borders with one of your other favorite blocks!!  Again, clicking on the picture will take you to the free pattern.



I noticed that there were quite a few of you who are bloggers yourselves.  My new book with Martingale, Twice as Nice, will be coming out later this year.  If you would be interested in being a participant in a blog hop announcing the book’s release, please email me.   I know that there’s a free book involved!!!


Now, totally changing the topic…I have never, nor do I hope to ever have to do this again, but I need to share with you my total frustration and disappointment with Posterous.  Between Jesse (my website guru) and myself, we contacted them at least 5 times to try to figure out what was going on…to date…we have not heard one word from them.  Please be warned that if you are thinking about having a  blog with them you will have issues with no  apparent customer service.  It seems  they have gone to the birds since Twitter acquired them…

Word Press…here I come!!

All my best,
