Just a Lil' Sweet Pea

Sweet Pea is Coming!

The grankids have returned to their respective homes after a hectic week-before-school-and-all-the-summer-day-camps-are-closed play date with Gramma and Grampa. Always fun to see them and hear what's new, always great to see them go and have my quiet, simple life back. Anyway, I was able to do some sorting with Aleece while she was here scrounging through my piles of scraps leftover from various projects. She has learned to hand stitch and can't get enough of it - clipped & snipped doll clothes designed without a pattern, buttons and beads for embellishment, snaps (a new skill) sewn on with care and ribbon ties for belts and apron strings. Pretty cool stuff even if I am the Gramma. But I digress. Lois, my dear piecer, bags and tags most of the scraps she brings back, but there are always a few piles that grow as we sew. To announce the impending delivery of Sweet Pea next month, I've assembled a bundle of scraps for one lucky quilter. Comment here by next Wednesday to win!

Sweet Pea scraps
This collection is anchored with a delightful floral print in warm fall tones (it even has pea pods!), smaller prints with leaves and flowers, a geometric dotted dot I adore, and a tone-on-tone that works with absolutely everything! Love, love, love it! Watch over the next couple weeks for the new projects featuring Sweet Pea fabrics & precuts.



Stop by each week on Wednesdays, beginning August 28th, for my blog post and our new weekly special. Our newest employee, Linda Van Ness, is cleaning out the storage room and wants to move patterns, books and fabric. Each week, we'll feature a KT product at drastically discounted prices on our website to share the overflow and make Linda happy. :) 


And don't forget about the Moda Designer Blog Hop to see all the latest designer's collections for fall.

  23. How fun to teach a granddaughter to sew! I have three grandsons who love their quilts, but no patience for sewing at 6, 3 and 2. Anxiously awaiting the arrival of my first granddaughter in the next few weeks!

  24. I am also teaching my granddaughter to sew and having this special time with just the two of us is great!! Since my daughter has no desire to sew I am loving every minute of this experience. Also glad to know that when I leave this earth there is a loved one to cherish my sewing room and fabric. Would love your scraps to start her on a new project.

  55. I just returned two of my grandgirls to their parents today, so I am right where you were when you wrote this: ready for normal piece and quiet (with emphasis on piece!) We made a skirt for the 13-year-old while they were here, and we talked about an apron for the 8-year-old. She'll likely see that under the tree for Christmas. The inspiration for this coming gift was her modeling two size 8 aprons I've made for our church's fall bazaar. They were SO CUTE on her that I'm going to sew an apron for her, even if she doesn't cook. Heck, she can wear it to paint or whatever. Hope I win your bundle!!!!!

  68. No matter how hard I try to resist I cannot stop myself from getting your new fabric lines. No matter how many bolt of fabric I look at in the quilt shops I always know that your fabric plays well with all the other fabrics you designed in the past that reside in my closet. I cannot tell you how happy that makes me, I know with other fabric lines I have tried to add to i have usually had the unpleasant surprise of a bringing home a fabric to add to the quilt and it just doesn't play nice with the other fabrics in the quilt.
    It sounds like you made some wonderful memories with your grand kids that they will have for the rest of their lives, enjoy them :)
