Kingsford Kove
56" x 68"
I have Kingsford Kove finished now.  I like how all the blacks and grays played together.  The quilting is a fun swirly design that works well with the straight lines in this quilt.

Now I'm full speed on Kranberries.  I have one more piece to cut; 912 red 2 1/2" squares.  I have some of these started, but probably not more than a quarter of what is required.  I'll have something on my design wall before the weekend is out.  Sad to look at a bare design wall...

I want to share another instances of "K" naming that I happened upon today.  I'll let the two emails speak...

Hello,

I was looking at images when searching the web for the word Krossfire. Specifically, I was looking for images of my quilt as I am a quilt artist.

In the quilting world many name their quilts especially if they will be in publications, shows, or become patterns. Some years ago I decided the letter "K" would be my thing to start each of the names of my quilts. Anyway it turns out that a few of my quilts have the same name as some of your Arabian horses. I've come up with some pretty clever "K" names that may be of interest. I'm certainly interested in some that you've cleverly created. Kazanova, Kaptivant, Kognac, and Katalyst are all great for a quilt. Actually I have several already listed as potential names for a future quilt (among them Katalyst, Kahula, and Kognac). If you find interest here, as I have, some of my "K" name creations can be seen on my website or on my blog (links below). I have several more not yet assigned as well on a list that keeps growing as something comes to mind.

By the way the quilts Krossfire right now under the needle =^.^= and Kilowatts are my next quilt show entries for the 2015 Road to California Quilt Show in the coming year. I had great success in the show this year with Kartwheels (2nd Place in Category) and Koriander Kompass. I'm hoping to be accepted at the Houston International Quilt Show with them, wish me success.

I also see a fondness for cats! I have Komotion a 14 years young Abyssinian. Kaos was my first Abyssinian; who I'll meet someday under the Rainbow Bridge.

I hope this communique gives you a lift as coming across your beautiful Krossfire achieved today for me.

Good fortune, Sandi

Hi Sandi
What STUNNING quilts!  Just when I thought I had a favorite picked out, I find another one just as appealing.  What beautiful work.

The use of the K names in our horses is used to identify foals from our foundation stallion, Kador (de Blaziet).  We just take words that start with C or K, words that seem to fit their personality and if it is a "C" word, we put a "K".

Thanks again for your note and all the best of success at your future exhibitions. 
Randi


Isn't that neat.  One never knows what the internet will bring to you if you go searching!  If you want to see some of Randi's horses look at the Centurion Stud website HERE.  Arabian horses are beautiful animals.

You go girl, I think this is a huge step. They actually responded and that is great thing. Who knows, maybe a tiny bond will take place.
