KT Bernina News

The new bernette Sew Pink Edition sewing machine is available October 1st at KT Bernina. This adorable little workhorse is all dressed in pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month. For each machine sold, Bernina will donate $20 to Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This is a great machine for traveling or your newest little quilter. Come in and try one out today!
 
 

Robert and I are in TX for a few days visiting his youngest daughter, Jacque, and squeezing the newest addition to the family, Evan, born just a month ago. He must be the most content baby ever since all the pictures we've seen are of him asleep! Can't wait to meet him and see what his big brother, Eli, has to tell us.


,
To celebrate another grandchild (since Evan missed being in the Layers of Love book by just a few months) we're giving away a Layers of Love book this week. Comment here on grandchildren - yours or in general -to win. I'll have pictures to share of Evan with his eyes open next week!

  1. The only thing that would draw me away from the beach earlier than planned (with a 13+ hour car ride ... in one day, no less!) would be my grands. Those 4 have stolen my heart!

  2. We have 2 sweet little grandsons, they sure do steal your heart! The oldest one slept a lot when he was a baby so that is what we have pix of most too!

  4. My only 2 grands are across the continent so we share layers of love via Skype as often as possible. Just a few minutes having them in sight and sound keeps the love flowing.

  12. Evan is a sweetie! We have four granddaughters. I have a red & white quilt that was used 13 years ago for our first GD to lay on and crawl on...it became our all year 'round Picnic Quilt. The 3 & 5 yr olds had a sleepover this past weekend and when we were ready for lunch they asked, "Where's the Picnic Quilt?" Quilts are such great memory makers! Thanks for the sweet giveaway.

  25. I have 7 grand kids, with # 8 due in Dec. And 4 greats. My goodness, sure sounds like a lot. I am so blessed. Don't see them often, as we live 5 1/2 to 14 hrs away. And we are not retired, so it is work, work, and work some more on the ranch. I am married to such a tough man. Enjoy that new grandbaby

  32. Congratulations! We have 13!!! They are the best ever! My 11 year old grandson went to shop hop with me last year, won a pack of fat quarters, made a quilt, (he even quilted it in my longarm) and entered it in HMQS! I love spending time with these amazing kids and sharing traditions and talents with them

  35. Grandchildren are our reward for getting older. They are the sweetest things this life has given to us. We have ten and they are all teenagers now. It has been so much fun watching them grow and change into the wonderful young people we are so proud of.

  36. As a child I thought my grandma was just wonderful, so much so that my plans for life were to grow up and be a grandma! I've been blessed with 11 grandchildren of my own.

  40. We were blessed with the arrival of seven grandchildren within the space of five years(three families). That kept me busy making baby quilts, that 's for sure. Now I have the joy of getting ready for number eight, due next April. I am teaching my five year old granddaughter to sew. Sure hope she will catch the quilting bug like her mother and me.

  56. Evan is a wonderful name! (I have an 8 year old son named Evan) Have fun in TX!!! Grandchildren are a blessing, and I cannot wait until, Lord-willing, we have a house full of them. Right now though, I'm savoring these years while my little blessing is still home with me. The time flies entirely too fast. :)

  58. I have purchase the Layers of Love book, however, I have a question...Why do the directions say "Do not top stitch in seam allowance"? Why not?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Carol - When stitching the layered pieces, it is only necessary to sew close to the raw edge that will be exposed once the block is assembled. There is no need to topstitch the layered piece in the seam allowance. Check out the stitching in the diagrams in the book. Hope that helps. If not, call me!

  59. Lynn, I raised 9 children and they have given me 37 grandchildren and 3 greats. I am so blessed. You can see that making quilts for them is an on going process. I love your fabric and layer patterns.

  60. Well, we have 4 grandchildren........and they have all been content babies.......what did we do differently back in the day? I have made them each a quilt to celebrate their birth............may need to start in making them each their second quilts. Your book could be a big help in that endeavor. Thanks for the chance.....Kristy

  68. Lynne - I just found you on Moda's Facebook! Your cottage is so cute : ) We have 5 grown children and our younger daughter just announced our 11th grandchild will arrive in April 2015! My sister and I have sewn for over 40 years and are loving learning everything we can about quilting - we live in Texas and may find our way to your cottage in Kansas!! The Pink Bernina is SO CUTE - I sew on a 1950's Singer. My only 2 granddaughters live in Africa - it would be fun to teach them to sew on this little machine. I just sent over a quilt for the younger one - she's only 4 mos!! It was my first quilt to free motion quilt - it was SO fun!! jmschwarz@tx.rr.com

  69. There is nothing quite like being a grandparent, as I am sure every grandparent has said. There is a feeling in my heart that no one else has ever been able to elicit, I love them both completely and with each one it is for different reasons. I pray for them every day and for the world that they will live in. I also hope that they will meet the right person who will love them w/o reservation and who will bring out all that is special in them. I can not really express how I love them and how much I love them.

  72. Today is my first time to you site, after watching you with Jenny Doan doing 'Twirls & Swirls'. Your GIGGLES got me!! I am on a ROLL as far as GREAT Grandchildren are coming along. I NOW have a brand new gr granddaughter Melina, & am waiting for TWINS in January, AND another one in March! The twins are boy & girl' the one in March is not going to find out the sex, but it will be FUN! It's mother has just found out she has lymphoma cancer - RARE only 2% in the USA have had it, and she is only the second pregnant mom, now 19 weeks along.. She is on Chemo (CHOP) and Behold! BOTH mom & baby are both going to be FINE. So, when the one in March is born, that will make me the great grandma of EIGHT. I am MORE than happy to find new quilts to sew for these little ones, and also a COMFORT quilt for the mom with cancer. God is GOOD. 1/3 down with chemo & next time, in two weeks, it will be 1/2 DONE. Mom is being AWESOME, even when she lost all her long & dark hair. US WOMEN CAN and DO! Hugs from Idaho to you! (And thank you for letting me 'air it out!') Alene in Idao
