Simplify classic blocks in a snap: you’ll love Layered Patchwork (+ fabric giveaway!)

We are thrilled to be the publisher of the latest book from Kansas Troubles Quilters—aka the talented Lynne Hagmeier!

Kansas Troubles Quilters Cozy Quilts and Comforts

With Kansas Troubles Quilters Cozy Quilts and Comforts, you can sew quilts in the instantly recognizable style of Kansas Troubles Quilters—and you can do it TWO ways. Use traditional piecing or Lynne’s signature (and super-simple) method.

layered patchworkIn the book you’ll learn Lynne’s secret for easy-peasy piecing—she calls it Layered Patchwork. The raw edges of layered-patchwork blocks barely fray when washed, giving a fluffy, snuggly finish. Best of all, the technique reduces cutting time, minimizes bulky seams, and skips pressing steps. Yay to all three—that means more beautiful, quick quilts for you and me!

You’ll love the look of both kinds of quilts: cozy, country-style designs that call out “cuddle me!”

We love Lynne’s passion for quiltmaking—she’s a quilt lover, maker, and designer for life. How do we know? Check out her Kansas Troubles tattoo—isn’t it the awesomest? She let us snap a pic of it at Quilt Market, and we LOVE it!

We’re happy to have Lynne as a guest writer at Stitch This! today—Lynne, tell us more about your gorgeous quilts!


Lynne HagmeierI have admired and collected the beautiful books published by Martingale/That Patchwork Place since I first began quilting more than 30 years ago. After partnering with Moda in 1999 to design my own line of fabrics, I was able to meet and visit with some of the authors of these wonderful books. What an honor to be among this creative group of women I’ve admired all these years. I am delighted to share with you my first book with Martingale, Kansas Troubles Quilters Cozy Quilts and Comforts.

The inspiration for Cozy Quilts and Comforts came from my desire to share a new technique I’ve developed over the past few years that I call Layered Patchwork. By placing a triangle, diamond, or other shape over a background square and topstitching, I can piece simplified blocks that have fewer seams—blocks lay flat and remain perfectly square. Simplified piecing of difficult-looking blocks equals more quilts for you and everyone on your list in less time! I’ve included traditional piecing methods for some of the projects to show the difference in construction, and so you have options.

I chose a variety of quilting projects for Cozy Quilts and Comforts, from simple Nine Patch and Snowball blocks in holiday hues to my favorite Kansas Troubles block in red, tan, and blue to Star blocks that spin and sparkle.

Xs and Os
X’s and O’s

When I design a bed-size or lap quilt, I always have smaller projects in the back of my mind as options for a coordinated look in my home. I live with my quilts—on the beds, thrown over the sofa or chairs, on tabletops, in baskets, and even as a shower curtain. I start many new designs with a sample block that becomes a pillow topper—bonus! With that in mind, I’ve included wall-size quilts, runners, and pillows for every space in your home. Smaller projects are also a great way to try out a new technique, such as Layered Patchwork, without the commitment of a larger quilt.

Here are a few of my favorite projects from Cozy Quilts and Comforts with my Kansas Troubles Retreats space as the backdrop. Jennifer Keltner, Martingale’s Chief Visionary Officer (and creative genius), gathered my collections of old “stuff” to showcase the quilts perfectly. Enjoy!

Mending Fences
Mending Fences simplifies an already simple Rail Fence block by layering a pinked strip over the center of a square. It’s the perfect choice for a guy quilt in warm, dark colors. The table runner goes together in a flash, and starts with a charm pack to coordinate with your kitchen.

Galaxy of Stars
Create a Galaxy of Stars with the help of a Layer Cake, a Jelly Roll, and a charm pack. With most of the pieces precut for you, assembly time is cut in half and your stars will shine brightly in no time.

Prairie Pinwheels
Triangles layered over rectangles and squares create visual movement in my Prairie Pinwheels quilts. Layered Patchwork makes quick work of more difficult-looking blocks.

Checkerboard Garden
Dig into your stash to piece a divinely scrappy path meandering through a garden of primitive flowers with my Checkerboard Garden wall quilt or table topper. Raw-edge appliqué and buttons add extra interest and dimension to the blooms.

Kaleidoscope
Kaleidoscope begins with simple four patches sewn together in rows. The magic happens with diamonds (Kansas Troubles Diamond Templates), which are layered over the seams and topstitched to create a whirling kaleidoscope of colors in lap or mini sizes.

Skipping Stones
Our Kansas Troubles Melon template is used to create a beautiful two-color quilt created with two small squares and a melon topstitched on each background square. Sew the red and tan squares together and watch the pattern of Skipping Stones come to life.

Kansas Troubles quilts
And, last, but not least, these Kansas Troubles quilts are pieced and layered in seasonal tones of black, gold, and tan for fall (check out the spooky spiderweb quilting); red, tan, and blue for summer festivities; or a scrappy mini for year-round use.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this preview of Kansas Troubles Quilters Cozy Quilts and Comforts as much as I’ve loved every minute of working with the wonderful ladies at Martingale. Thanks to all of you for capturing my vision in the pages of this book.

    Thanks for inspiring me to try more with your books.

    Sharon on November 15, 2017

    —Kathy Swanson on November 15, 2017
  • I have stumbled upon her layered patchwork before, but felt unsure to try it. Photos from her new book have certainly encouraged me to take the leap!

    —Norma Mossburg on November 15, 2017
  • think I’ll just start at the front and work my way through this book. Awesome!

    Joyce on November 15, 2017
  • If new techniques work, bring it on. Some of these quilting ladies have such great ideas! I wish alot of the techniques we have now were there when I started quilting many years ago.

    —Cynthia Fedak on November 15, 2017
  • I try new things all the time. How else are you going to learn.I have Lynn’s nickel and dime book and rulers and would love to have this book.

    —Pam VanKleek on November 15, 2017
  • I love trying new techniques, that’s why I take classes and belong to a quilt group at my local quilt shop. New techniques let me spread my wings.

    —Pat Brich on November 15, 2017
  • Even though I started quilting in the early 90’s every quilt I make now is like learning new techniques. I had a stroke and due to memory loss I am learning all over again. I am enjoying learning new techniques with the members of the 2 guilds I belong to.

    —Gayle on November 15, 2017
  • I try new techniques (and make some up) all the time. It’s wonderful when all works as planned!

    Elle C on November 15, 2017
  • I’m always looking for new technique to try. I like to keep my mind active and my hands busy.

    —Dianna Ridge on November 15, 2017
  • I start slowly with new techniques. Gathering information. Measuring twice, cutting once.

    —Donna Kaemingk on November 15, 2017
  • I love trying new techniques; there is always something new to learn!

    —Linda Thomas on November 15, 2017
  • I love trying new techniques if they save time and fussiness.

    —Lisa Sweet on November 15, 2017
  • I am reluctant to try anything other than what I know. I have only made one crib size quilt and have been waiting for a pattern to "overwhelmingly beckon" me to start another. Mixing patterns in fabric selection is difficult for me, so fat quarters are the answer!

    —Martha on November 15, 2017
  • Still relatively new to quilting, so anxious to learn new techiques. Love the kansas patterns and fabrics and would definitely try them out!!

    —Kathy on November 15, 2017
  • I love new techniques! Too much! I’m always going on to the next one before I’ve perfected the last one. This book is a must!

    —Linda on November 15, 2017
  • I’m a mix. I like trying new things, but as a new quilter want to feel comfortable in getting a project done. I’m always learning.

    —Jane Larke on November 15, 2017
  • I do a Lot of quilting and enjoy learning new techniques.

    Sandie on November 15, 2017
  • I tried layered piecing back a while ago when Penny Haran’s books came out. I was away from piecing for a while and plain forgot about it!
    But participating in the MODA BLOCKHEADS for 2017 has reintroduced me to the piecing technique though Lynne’s contributions and it makes life so much easier – no sewing something together and finding out you were a half inch off one row – plus or minus is equally aggravating!
    I’m open to traditional and other, but layered is now my preferred technique.

    —SallyBC on November 15, 2017

    —Sue Cieslak on November 15, 2017
  • Love to try new techniques. If it makes the cutting, sewing faster or simplified I am all for it. I am excited to try this new technique. Love this book. Traditional with a modern twist!!!

    —Lin H on November 15, 2017
  • I love all forms of quilting – picking out the fabrics, piecing, applique, embellishments – all of it. I love new techniques also, so I am often taking classes. Sometimes I try the new technique and it’s not me, sometimes I love it, sometimes I like it for this project, but not that one. I find that in each class I have taken, I find at least one new tip, technique, idea that I like.

    —Janet on November 15, 2017
  • I try new techniques all the time! As a fairly new quilter, I feel that I am learning at the perfect time to be able to start off with these new time-saving techniques. In today’s busy world, saving time while still doing what I love is a Godsend! I have always loved Kansas Troubles aka Lynn! I am working on a bed quilt for my bed with her beautiful fabric right now. I’m super excited about this book and to learn this technique!

  • I like to try new techniques. It is always helpful to have clear directions or support from a more experienced quilter.

    —Julia Stavran on November 15, 2017
  • I recently made my first quilt using the layered raw-edge technique. I love the look. This quilt was of the ‘loose change’ variety but I included two cabin blocks. It was a gift to a friend who owns two cabins in a cove in North Carolina. The Kansas Troubles fabric was perfect with leaves and acorns scattered. My long-arm quilter used an all-over falling leaves pattern. I love the finished product and had a hard time giving it away.

    —Daphne Clonts on November 15, 2017
  • I like traditional piecing but am always open to learning any technique that makes my patchwork quicker and more precise. I love KT fabrics and would love to win the new book and fabrics!

    —Robin McGuire on November 15, 2017
  • I’m a little chicken to try new techniques! When I do, I’ll most likely just do a trial run of the block out of scraps I have and then use it on a throw pillow or something, I don’t like to commit to a technique on a whole quilt until I know I like it!

    —Peggy Laipple on November 15, 2017
  • I haven’t tried it but love learning new things! I am the BIGGEST fan of Kansas Troubles fabrics!! I would be so tickled to win the book and fabric bundle! Thanks so much for this opportunity.

    —Mary Austin on November 15, 2017
  • I’m sometimes hesitant to try a new technique if it looks a little scary. But most times it works out fine and it is fun to learn another way to work on my favorite hobby.

    —Susan on November 15, 2017

    —Nyla-Jean on November 15, 2017
  • I love traditional piecing, but trying new techniques is fun too. Especially if the new technique gives me a faster way to use the many yards of Kansas Troubles fabric I have in my stash! Twelve years ago when I started quilting, Kansas Troubles fabric was the favorite of my mentor/quilting buddy. Over the years when I bought K/T kits/fabrics for her for gifts, I usually bought some for myself, a bad habit of mine. So yes, I am anxious to learn a new technique that will look great in fabrics I love.

  • I have been trying new techniques since I started quilting in the 1970s. Back then it was a way to learn how to construct many different blocks. As tools and techniques became more advanced, the ‘trying’ became a way to save time and make quiltmaking easier. I love Lynn’s layered technique – so many more quilts can be made in so little time.

    —Carol on November 15, 2017
  • Looking back over my 30 plus years of quilting, I cringe the thought of not learning new techniques! I would still be struggling with home-made templates, attempting to square up my half square and quarter square blocks mainly by eye, doing my best to avoid stretching bias because it needed to be handled so much and and avoiding small pieces because it was next to impossible to make them look right. Long story short, my quilting hobby would cause frustration rather than pride if I hadn’t "bought into"new techniques! I am grateful for those in the industry who have the smarts to create new techniques for the rest of us to use!!!

    Donna Murdock on November 15, 2017
  • My first pieced quilt block was made with stencil,s cut with scissors, and sewn on a $25 Singer sewing machine I bought at a sidewalk sale. Today I use strip piecing, rotary cutters, straight and triangle rulers, etc. I enjoy selecting fabrics, cutting and piecing quilts. I enjoy the innovation quilters share on television, magazines, and in classes.

  • I’m the one who is always trying new techniques, for quicker, better ways, or just more fun additions to things so have already learned, some may not necessarily be better, but may be easier for different people, as we don’t all work the same. It seems no matter what I learn, there are always certain things I know, I always seem to go back to. Sometimes, I get to changebit a tad. Then it’s the old way with a new twist! Thank you Martingale! Maybe one day I too can write a quilting book!

I am a traditional quilter, but I need the challenge of being able to figure out the new techniques whether it be a quicker project or the challenges, I need satisfy myself " wow I can do that". Mariners compass, double wedding rings, miniature quilting! Bring it on.

Since I retired, I find I need see more immediate results, so I make throws or small quilts with fat quarters or charm packs with patterns I see on Facebook or quilters’ webpages. These will be gifts, and when one becomes a favorite, I know I can put the time into making a fullsized quilt.

    Different techniques keep my mind sharper. "Different" techniques can lead to other ideas.
    I like to make different quilt designs that someone else has not done before. Unique, symmetrical, balanced shapes with a central focus design in the middle are my favorites.

    I step-out-of-the-box often. LOL

My son always called them quilt camp. He thought we were crazy to spend money to go somewhere and cut/sew for up to 12 hours a day and then stay up even later. Nuts, yes, but always a really fun time.

We take our "Friday & Saturday Girls" through a graduated programme using donated fabrics & older sewing machines. As you would know it is much more than quilting. It is mathematics, literacy & self esteem. We all love working together & I particularly value many of the designs displayed & demonstrated on this web site. Simple -effective & eye catching. Long may you continue sharing the Joy.

  • I’m up for new techniques, but the tried and true is my normal mode. But when the new way is tried, sometimes it becomes the go to method!

  • What’s traditional,lol I like it all, including piecing and applique, paper piecing, crazy quilts, art quilts, but never tried raw edge… Would love to try this.

    —Mami B on November 20, 2017
  • I like to try new techniques when I can, anything to save me time and improve my quilting abilities.

  • I really enjoy discovering new and creative ways to piece traditional blocks as it adds to the fun and enjoyment.

  • I have been a fan of Lynne’s for several years. I particularly love her choice of colors. I usually stick with traditional piecing but I have one of Lynne’s books so I have also made a couple of small layered patchwork items. That’s another thing I love: that she always has a small project along with a larger one. If I were to win this magnificent prize, I’d definitely have a go at making a quilt with layered patchwork.

  • I am learning to quilt so all techniques are new to me!

    —Betsy Lang on November 20, 2017
  • I am always open to new ideas although I tend to be nervous about trying one first. I usually share with a friend; easier to get it right with 2 heads figuring it out.

  • I spend most of my time doing traditional piecing, but it’s fun to learn new techniques, especially in a class/workshop where you get to share your love of quilting with everyone else.

  • I like traditional but love to learn new ways.

    Deb on November 22, 2017
  • I like traditional techniques but I like trying to design a quilt, I some times look at a quilt without instructions and try to figure out the dimensions of size I want to make and what is the best way to accomplish it. I also draw up my own applique when I see one I like. I was mostly self taught with a little help from a cousin about 10 yrs ago. I now belong to the Quilts Of Valor which I enjoy doing very much.

  • I love to try new techniques. I find it rather boring to do the same kind of work all the time. To me, quilting always has to be a challenge, requiring some brain work. Birgitt
