I knew most of you are talented and good at applique, but I had no idea how many of you are such good designers!  The blocks coming in for my stocking contest are so good I’m going to have to have a committee to help me choose just 3.  Think about it, the stockings are fairly small, about the size of what you might hang on a tree, and the entire block is only 8″ finished!  But what this group has filled them with amazes me!

Here are a few that just came in.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

Charlotte’s Block (also from Instagram)


Look at that little snowman block from a little girl named Charlotte!  I don’t know what’s more precious, her or her block!

Now, do you see what my challenge is?   Just think, you still have 1 1/2 weeks to send me yours!   There are around 30 entries now so that would make your chance of winning 1 in 30!  This is l going to end with so much fun for all of us!  Let’s go you applique lovers!  You can do this!


Cheering you on this week!


Design Contest

If you’re sewing this weekend make sure you include a stocking for our design contest.  Just look at these entries from week one in our 12 Designers, 12 Months, 12 Contests!  Aren’t these little stockings cute?  We’ve even had 3 children enter their stockings! If they can do it so can you!  You still have plenty of time and remember how great the prizes are?   But you have to enter in order to win so print the stocking template and show us what you can do.

The three winners are going to be part of our free mystery quilt that starts in July!  I just know you’re going to love this free pattern and think how you’ll feel if we choose your entry as a winner.  People from all over will be making it!  Imagine, your design as part of a Bunny Hill pattern!

I’ll be telling you more about this mystery quilt on June 5th when we pick the 3 winners, but here are two hints…it’s made from Sugar Plum Christmas and it’s a Christmas quilt you can finish before December comes around.  We’ll have kits available starting June 5th along with the yardage amounts in case you want to use your own fabric.  I’ll reveal much more about the quilt on the 5th and you’ll have plenty of time to get organized before we start, but for now, just post those stocking blocks to Instagram using the hashtag #12contestsbunnyhilldesigns or email them to me at

This is going to be fun, I promise!

Glitter Houses

If you missed out on our Glitter House quilt kit, I was able to get a bit more fabric for a few extra kits!  I’ve just put them back in stock on our website.  These will be the last of our kits because several of the fabrics we need are sold out at Moda.

Have a wonderful weekend!


There will be 3 winners, some great prizes and a chance to be featured in my new mystery quilt that starts in July!   All you have to do is to add a little “something” to my stocking pattern!  You can design something to go on the stocking, in the stocking, or next to the stocking.  Here’s the info for you…

 Contest Rules
  • You have 3 weeks to submit your design.  I’ll choose the winners on June 1st and announce them on June 5th!
  • The stocking blocks must finish at 8″ x 8″ so be sure and cut your background 8 ½ x 8 ½”.
  • Start with the stocking pattern included below.   You can turn it, tip it, or use as is, but please keep the stocking facing to the left.
  • Use hand embroidery, applique (needle-turn, spray starch, machine applique or blanket stitch fusible web), or even piecing, but we must be able to see the original stocking design.
  • Your design must be an original design or it can be adapted from a previous Bunny Hill Design.
  • Show me your completed stocking block on Instagram using the hashtag #12contestsbunnyhilldesigns or, email us a picture of your design at info@bunnyhilldesigns.
  • You can enter as many blocks as you wish.  The more you enter, the better your chance of winning!
Contest Fabrics
  • You can use my newest Sugar Plum Christmas fabric or any Moda Christmas fabric you have in your stash.  You can easily make this stocking from 5″ squares or a charm pack.  If you’d like a Sugar Plum Christmas charm pack I have some on my website, but you can use scraps too.
  • Use a neutral background (Bella 9900 200 works well, or one the whites from Sugar Plum Christmas fabric.)  You’ll need a 8½” x 8½” background square.
  • If you win, we’ll be re-making your block with our Sugar Plum Christmas fabric and it will become part of my final quilt.  You’ll be asked to either email or mail me a copy of your winning design.
