I am so glad you have stopped by my website. I would love for you to browse around, look at some of my quilts and see the products I offer through my store. My husband, Joe, says I am so passionate about my quilting and he is correct. I love to quilt.

I consider myself very lucky that my quilts have won awards and have been shown on the covers of 18 magazines. I read a wonderful quote from Oprah. "Luck is preparation meeting opportunity. If you hadn't been prepared when the opportunity came along, you wouldn't have been lucky." So even though I have been very lucky along my journey some if it is because I have worked very hard.

Over the years as I was creating quilts I also developed a passion for creating products for quilters.  You will find those products throughout the store pages.   

I hope you enjoy your journey looking through my website and will feel free to contact me if you should have any questions.

 There are free videos for many of my products under "Free Tutorials" at the top of this page.  Enjoy!

NEWS FLASH: Karen retires ... just from teaching

I am sure a lot of you knew this was coming.....I have decided to retire from professional quilt teaching.  Only teaching.  I still plan to keep my Perfect Product line going and am adding more products this year and next.  I will also keep designing and quilting.  As many of you know, I took the year 2020 off from teaching (that turned out to be a better idea than I expected)  As much as I LOVED teaching and felt that I was able to put my teaching degree to very good use, I won't miss packing and unpacking.  I will miss seeing students in person and the gratification I got when I saw the "light go on" as a student realized her or his own potential.  I am taking thousands of good teaching memories with me as I retire.  I could write a very thick book on all of my fantastic teaching experiences and am so thankful for the friends I have made. I taught in 49 states in the US and numerous international events. That is crazy. I've had a VERY blessed life.

Thanks for the memories, they will keep me warm and happy the rest of my years.  And keep sending me photos of those finished projects!  I love seeing your finished class projects....no matter how long it takes :)

Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Heat Resistant Template Plastic™

I LOVE this new product and you will too.  Look in the "More Recommended Notions" part of the "Store" for all the details and "Free Tutorails" to see how I use it.



Karen Kay Buckley’s New 7 1/2” Perfect Scissors™-Multipurpose

After introducing my first pair of straight blade scissors last year, the response was so good that we have decided to add another size to our Multipurpose line.  They have a beautiful magenta colored handle.  The blades are stainless steel.  They have the same comfortable handles as all of our other scissors and they come with a protective cover. 




Karen Kay Buckley’s 5” Perfect Scissors™-Multipurpose

This is my first pair of straight blade scissors.  They are great for cutting templates (freezer paper, Templar), fabric and fabric with fusible stabilizers.  The blades are stainless steel.  The handles have the same soft, ergonomic grip as our other Perfect Scissors™.  They cut sharp to the point and come with a plastic protective cover.  Great for both right and left hand cutting. 





Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Adjustable Rulers

This ingenious ruler is four rulers in one package.  The five piece ruler easily snaps together to form a 6 inch, 12 inch, 18 inch or 24 inch length depending on your needs.  It has clear and accurate grid markings along with 30, 45 and 60 degree markings.  This ruler will become your perfect travel campion as it stores easily in a handy felt bag.  It is great when you are at home or on the go. The is a 3"wide version and a 6" wide version. 


You'll find these in the "Store" section under "Rulers" at www.karenkaybuckley.com


Perfect Adjustable Square™

I have been working on an idea for a couple of years.  One of my most feared steps, related to applique, is when I have to square the block after I have finished my applique.  I, like many other appliquers, prefer to cut our background fabric larger and then square the block to size when the applique is complete.  The reason I have always hesitated at this step is....what if I do it incorrrectly and have to make the block over again?

With the Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Adjustable Square™ the fear is removed. 

In your beautiful decorative storage box you receive: 4 corner units, 4 one inch, 4 two inch, 4 four inch and four eight inch pieces.  20 pieces in all.  These pieces snap together similar to a puzzle piece.  It will allow you to build a square from 4", the inside of the square is in whole numbers, and up to a 24 1/2" square, the outside is in 1/2" increments.  You can easily use your rotary cutter along the outside of the Perfect Adjustable Square™. Also, included in the box is the Perfect Adapter(TM).

The recommended retail price is $74.95.

Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Thread Bags™.  I love this thread bag because it keeps me so well organized.  This fabric bag will hold many different brands of threads. I use it to hold all of my hand applique threads.  All the bags are designed the same on the inside but when you go to the "thread bag" section in the "store" you will be able to select a fabric for the exterior of the bag.
