Scrappy Plates Part Three

If you’re making a Scrappy Plate Quilt, part three is ready to download.  Just think, by next month you could have a finished quilt.  Some are starting to show up on my Flickr group.

Scrappy Plate Instructions Part Three

My own Scrappy Plate quilt just came back from Lynne my quilter and just look the quilting!


Don’t you love the quilting? If you look at the last photo you can see a bit of the scallop line traced with a water erasable marker and the border quilting.  I’ll show you more as soon as the binding is on.

If you don’t want a scalloped border you can complete your quilt now.  If you can’t decide,  wait until next month and I’ll give you the pattern and directions.  A scallop border is perfect for 30’s fabrics, floral fabrics or dots.  It might not look good with darker fabrics that have that rich civil war style.  Decisions, decisions!

Fabric Placement Guide for Merry Merry Snowmen:

Some of you have called asking for help with the fabric placement for Merry, Merry Snowmen.  Anytime we get more than one call or email I know others probably need help too, so it’s Bunny Hill to the rescue!    I’ve added a fabric placement guide that lists all of the applique and background fabrics.   Just print it out and you’ll be ready to go!

Designer Mystery Blog Hop

I hope you had fun with the Designer Mystery Blog Hop hosted by Fat Quarter Shop.  I think everyone who guessed what my mystery item was got it right… my old Christmas Sweater!   Head over to Jolly Jabber to see if you won a prize for guessing right!   Scroll down on the blog and you’ll see my sweater along with all the other mystery items.  No, I don’t really wear it every Christmas.  I’m saving it for the “Old Christmas Sweater Party”.

Thank you Kimberly for hosting such a fun blog hop.  It was great seeing what all the designers got out of their closets!  Congratulations to all the winners!

Back soon,

  • mimi'sdarlins - This looks so pretty, Anne, and you have found a very talented quilter! I love what she’s done, has really enhanced your beautiful blocks. I am still working on my hand applique and going rather slowly due to other commitments, but I’m working as time permits and hoping to catch up this month. I’m enjoying the process and love seeing the inspiration in the group, and that’s the most important thing :)ReplyCancel
