Scrap Quilt Challenge-Sponsor Spotlight-Quilting Treasures

Today I am excited to give you a little insight into another one of our Scrap Quilt Challenge sponsors, Quilting Treasures fabric company.

Quilting Treasures is an Employee-Owned company that designs and produces high quality fabrics exclusively to the Independent market.  The company’s history dates back to 1807!  I hear that we will soon see some reproductions of the earliest designs made by the company.  Talk about authentic!
QT has a great in-house design team working on fabric lines, but also partners with terrific artists to bring their art to textiles.  You can see bios of their team here http://www.quiltingtreasures.com/meetourdesigners/. In addition, they also work with brands, like Peanuts, Case, Elf on the Shelf & a ton more; see them here: http://www.quiltingtreasures.com/licensedbrands/.  With a treasure chest of designs like that, you know they have something to suit a huge variety of tastes and quilty needs.  
Quilting Treasures also understands community responsibility and through its charitable foundation has donated approximately $8 million to various non-profit organizations.  We do love a company that gives back, don't we?!
Though part of the larger Cranston Fabric company, Quilting Treasures is a brand of its own.  The fabrics are a quality unique within the larger company and are available only in independent quilt shops and fabric stores.
I am personally honored to be a pattern designer for QT.  They are a superb team to work with and I get excited to see each new line that comes my way for patterns.  You can find my latest patterns I designed for Quilting Treasures on my Free Patterns page with a link that will take you straight to the pattern on the QT site.  Look for my next pattern this fall with the Shalimar collection.  {of course, I'll have kits for you!}
Quilting Treasures has generously donated a lap quilt kit of my design for the Bloom fabric line.  Bloom was designed by Amylee Weeks and features butterflies & a cute florals as well as modern geometric designs.  The color palette draws you in.  Amylee is a Christian artist and her designs reflect her faith.   We are out of these kits in the shop, so this Scrap Quilt Challenge prize will be extra special.  

{Since this prize is of a Christian theme, we understand it may not be suitable for every quilter.  If you are selected the winner and prefer a swap, we will gladly reward you with an alternate prize.}
If you've not heard of the Scrap Quilt Challenge, it's not too late!  Check out all the details on our website &join our Facebook group, if you would like!
