One of the projects I completed during the crazy sewing month of February was my newest pattern, "Kickin' Stash". Actually, I completed two sizes of "Kickin Stash", plus three quarters of a third, but who's counting. The cover quilt is my absolute favorite and is made from 20 of the blocks gleaned from my Scrappy New Year swap - so I didn't have to do as much of the work and I still get an amazing quilt for my cover. Stick with me long enough and I'll teach you all sorts of tricks for being lazy.
You've heard about it enough from me, now it's time to hear about it from those who participated in the group quilts. I've lined up several of the ladies who participated in the block swap experience who also blog to help me debut my new Kickin' Stash pattern with a little blogaround this week, and I encourage you to visit each of their blogs to get their perspectives on what I think is a really fun pattern - but of course the jury is still out. Maybe I'll regret this by Wednesday.

These ladies are all so talented and made this project almost too easy for me, and they are great bloggers to boot, so you're in for a treat. Set your Outlook alarm to 10am (or whenever) every day and see why "Kickin' Stash" is our new favorite scrap pattern!
For the week of the blogaround, I'm offering Kickin' Stash exclusively at Patternspot.com (http://patternspot.com/products/2070) for an introductory price of $7.50, which is a bit of a savings off the $9.00 print price, plus you get it immediately, with no shipping costs, and can instantly start whipping your scraps into a frenzy. There's nothing more satisfying than an emptier scrap bin replaced by a fantastic new quilt!
