Henrietta Updates & Class

Wow, some of you are working fast on the Henrietta quilt.  You already have your backgrounds pieced!  I’m really amazed!  For the rest of you please remember the general instructions are just that…general.    You’ll get the exact cutting directions every month with each block.  Don’t feel like you need all the backgrounds pieced at once.  You can do them as you go along.

Because some of you are such super fast quilters we’ve caught 3 mistakes in the General Directions for Henrietta Whiskers.  Henrietta is so glad you took the time to email me!  She’s driving me crazy because every time she sees an email with her name in it she gets really excited!   I’ve got to get her out of the studio!

If you’d like a corrected copy of the General Instructions just click on “free” from this blog or my website.  If you’d like to update the ones you have here are the corrections:

Page Three

Sku # 2673 18  add two 2  1/2″ x 2  1/2″ squares

Sku #2676 11 under Top & Bottom applique strip:  add one more  4  1/2″ x 4  1/2″ square for a total of 5 (one is for block five)

Sku #2052 13:  should be 2 1/2″ x 12  1/2″ (not 10  1/2″)

Page Four

Change bottom left corner strip to 2  1/2″ x 12  1/2″ (not 2  1/2″ x 10 1/2″)

  • Melody - I love the flickr stream of everyone’s Block one. I plan to work on mine tonight. Thank you so much for sharing Henrietta with us. You are always so generous and it is very much appreciated.ReplyCancel

  • Barb - I would give anything to be at your class in Livermore, CA – ‘cuz then I’d get to meet you ‘in person’!! However. . .that isn’t likely to happen, but maybe someone will take lots of pictures and share them with the rest of us.

    Thanks for the updates on Henrietta – she is so darn cute!!ReplyCancel

  • Ina - Stay Calm
    and keep Henrietta
    away from the mail.

    BTW, how is the little Bitsy doing? Still insisting on being carried everywhere?ReplyCancel

  • DeAnna - Even though I always print and save the gorgeous Bunny Hill BOMs each year, I have to admit this is the first one where I’m actually determined to keep up each month. And I already have all my backgrounds cut and, as much as possible at this point, pieced. I’m about halfway done on the applique for Block One, too.

    Loving it!

    Thank you, Anne, for all the wonderful patterns. :D

    P. S. Yes, please tell us how Bitsy is!ReplyCancel

  • Ina - Anne, will there be waffle fabric and pre-quited fabric both in the new yellow in the next fabric release? I love the yellow and it is so perfect for gender neutral gifts!ReplyCancel

  • Tina - Yikes! I’m still working on Snowbound, but then again I always was the last kid out the door :)ReplyCancel

  • Sylvie BG - Thanks a lot for this lovely Henrietta Wiskers ! So cuuuuuuute ! I love her !
    And thanks for the updates !ReplyCancel

  • Marilyn - Could you use a video cam while you are at the shop working on Henrietta?ReplyCancel

  • Ina - My order arrived today…thank you! Where do you buy the wonderful saltwater taffy? I bought some recently at Safeway and it was horrible…had to throw it away! ;0ReplyCancel

  • Heather - Thanks so much for your BOM patterns. I discovered Snowbound in mid Dec and was able to download all the patterns before sweet Henrietta appeared. While literally snowbound at home in Atlanta during last week’s freak snowstorm, I was able to complete the whole Snowbound quilt top (minus borders) and Henrietta Whiskers block one. All hand appliqued. Sometimes snowstorms can be so much fun!!ReplyCancel

  • Ronda - Anne do you have a flicker group set up for Herietta whiskers? I am almost done with block one and I so enjoy seeing everyones work. Thanks again for a wonderful pattern and thanks for helping with my order I had it so messed up but you made it perfect got it today!ReplyCancel

  • angela beagle - It seems I can´t download any of the three PDFs. Is it happening with anyone else or is it just with me?

    I´m in love with Henrietta so I´m so frustrated….

    Hi Anne!ReplyCancel

  • Joanne - Hi! I agree with Marilyn; is there a way for you to use a web cam so we can see your class on Henrietta?ReplyCancel

  • barbara utter - This Iron looks like a dream come true. I would like to win it because, I could never be able to buy it. Thanks for the opportunity. BarbaraReplyCancel

  • Kelly B. - Hi,
    Love your patterns and the bunnies too!
    The lavendar sachets are a great idea. I made a lot of balsam pillows at Christmas time and may have to try a few of those. Of course, with a new iron, the project would go a lot smoother. And since my husband has never liked an iron he’s met and since he does do his own ironing, two of us would be happy!
    Have a great day,

  • anna f - oh how I love Henrietta…We have a Henrietta outside our window ,she is just a small squirel packed with energy(lot more than me) and we had named her that cuz she was so cute and thennnnnnnnnn when I saw your Henrietta I just knew I had to make her..thanks for Henrietta .would love to have that beautiful iron, wow could I speed along then.thanks a million and have a great day,,,,,,,ReplyCancel

  • Susan McAuliffe - I would be beyond happy to win the iron. I went to the website and was blown away with what that iron can do. I quilt as well as being one of those old fashion-type people that still iron most everything. What a gift to have an iron that actually helped do the work. I will keep my fingers crossed that I could be the lucky one.ReplyCancel

  • Gloria Schatz - Oliso, Oh-Pluh-leeze-O…I could absolutely use this Smart Iron and I’d take it in any color too!! My comment is quick as a bunny and simple as that, however, let me close by saying thank you to the folks at Oliso for this very generous offer and to you, Miss Anne, for hosting our comments!! Have a hoppy day!! :)ReplyCancel

  • Donna McGraw - I would love to win the smart iron. It would be a joy to have.
    Mine is on it,s last legs–and crawling now.Any color would be fine with me.
    Thank you for hosting this give away.

  • Brenda - Wow! This looks like a welcome addition to my sewing life. Thank-you for the oppurtunity.

  • Christie - My sister sent your new design to my mother who is staying with me for a while. She loves your designs. Thank you for allowing us to print them off. She thinks I could use a 2nd iron one for the laundry room and one for the craft room where she is working on a flannel log cabinReplyCancel

  • Sherry - I would love one of these irons. The carpet in my sewing room is very thick (that’s another topic entirely), and I am always worried about my iron tipping over and falling off my ironing board.ReplyCancel

  • Dianne - I would love to have this iron! I’ve never seen an iron like it and I don’t think anyone else makes one like it! My grandson just recently scorched my ironing board cover when he laid the iron face down on it. It wouldn’t have happened with this iron! Since I have several friends and 9 children occasionally sewing with me..this iron would be perfect! No tipping, no dripping, great detailer for sleeves, and cuffs, I Love it!ReplyCancel

  • Sandy - Oh, what can I say, I do love to iron, it’s kind of a zen thing to do – a new iron that’s so nifty would be wonderful too! Thanks for the opportunity and for hosting the give away.ReplyCancel

  • Susan - Well, this week I finished my husband’s quilt for his birthday, Feb. 27. I’m terribly slow. (-: I finished block 3 tonight, but I haven’t done any applique yet. I’m trying to decide between regular material or wool or both. I’ve been looking at the wonderful photos to help me make up my mind. oh, well spring break is almost over and I need to grade more papers so I can start on report cards for next week… once I’m through with that I’ll start on the applique. Happy sewing.ReplyCancel

  • Michele-Marie - Have clicked on block 6 but nothing comes up except a larger picture. Where is the download pdf file located please? Each of the other 5 blocks the pdf was fine.
    Regards :-)

  • Judy - Thank you so much for sharing this and the other two free patterns. They were so much fun and you are so kind to do so! Sorry there won’t be one next year but you have been so generous thank you again!ReplyCancel
