Join me this New Year’s Eve for a Bunny Hill giveaway!  It’s time to celebrate the end of a year and the start of another and I’ve been gathering up things to give away.   I brought some samples back from quilt market and found some other treats that Moda’s sent me over the last year.  I’ve got two fat quarter bundles of Sugar Plum Christmas, one fat eighth bundle, and an Aurifil thread kit.  I found some different designer rolls of wonderful Moda fabric groups so I’m giving those away too.  This giveaway will end tomorrow, on January 1st. and I’ll choose a total of eight winners.  It could be you if you leave me a comment!

We used to wait up to see the ball drop in New York, but they’ve quit showing it live here in California.  And, try as we might we usually don’t last until midnight for the firework display in San Francisco.  I hope your New Year’s Eve is more exciting than ours.  I’ll be back tomorrow to tell you who the winners of the goodies are.  Happy New Year’s Eve everyone!

Guess what day today is?  It’s another “Applique All Day” day over on the Fat Quarter Shop blog!  If you love applique but you don’t have “all day” to make something, block three is perfect for you!   It’s raw edge applique!  Just fuse and straight stitch on your machine (using Aurifil 80 wt thread of course).  You can have this block finished in less that an hour.

Woodland TreeI designed this block for Jan Patek’s Fern Hill fabric.  It’s a 6″ finished block that’s perfect for this time of year.  Think what you can do with this cute little block…use three to make a table runner, or six to make a quick and easy quilt.  Fat Quarter Shop has the fabric, the 80 wt. thread and the free pattern!  It’s on the Jolly Jabber Blog just for today!

Happy applique!

Dear Santa, I just heard that I might be able to visit a lot of houses with you next year. I’m so excited I can hardly sleep! I’ll be over on the Bunny Hill website waiting for you to pick me up!

What’s this little mouse talking about?   Well, if you don’t have a local quilt shop nearby offering this kit,  I’m taking kit pre-orders for it over the next two weeks.  Some quilt shops are offering it as a block of the month, and some even have it as laser cut versions.  I always encourage you to shop at your local quilt store. If you can’t find it locally, you can pre-order kits for The Christmas Mouse and Glitter Houses on my website.

Here’s something that might be fun!  We have a special this month on Bunny Hill Petite patterns!  Buy 3 Petites and get one free! Tell us in the comment section on checkout what you’d like your free petite pattern to be.  If you can’t wait for the snail mail and you want to purchase PDF petite patterns, buy three and then choose your free one but don’t add it to your cart.  Tell us in the comment section and we’ll email it to you.  Here’s a few of the petite patterns we have:

 We’re even including Maya Mouse in our petite selection…she’ll be ready to ship next week.  If you haven’t tried a petite pattern yet, they are really fun!

Are you going crazy this year with holiday shopping?  I have to admit I haven’t set foot in a store yet.  Everything I’ve purchased has been with the click of my mouse and I’m curious as to what you are doing.  Do you shop online or still prefer going to the actual store?  I think I’d buy more if I was in the store, and I know I’m missing out on the holiday decorations and excitement, but time seems to get more limited every year.  As my purchases get delivered, I feel a bit guilty.  How about you?  Another question, do you wrap your purchases right away or wait until the last-minute?  If you have a system of organization share it with us!

Back soon,

Anne
