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 In addition, they also work with brands, like Peanuts, Case, Elf on the Shelf & a ton more; see them here:  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!
