Happy Monday everyone!  I’ve got a surprise for you that I designed for The Fat Quarter Shop.   I think you’re going to want one.  It’s a cute table runner that will go perfectly with all the other Spooky Delights patterns we have and the best news is that you can get the pattern for free!   You can read about it on the Jolly Jabber Blog today!

Quilt along for three weeks on the Jolly Jabber blog and you’ll have a table runner ready for Halloween.  It’s so cute it’s the perfect gift.  The kits are only available at The Fat Quarter Shop so make sure you get one right away.  Click on the photo below and it will take you right to The Fat Quarter Shop kit.

Fat Quarter Shop 2016 Designer Mystery Block of the Month

My friend Kimberly, at the Fat Quarter Shop has been doing a Designer Mystery Block of the Month every year since 2011!  I think I’ve had the honor of being in at least half of them! Kim chooses a fabric collection and then invites designers to join her in designing a mystery block.  The result is fun, and always something new!

For 2016 she’s picked one of my favorite Moda fabric lines, Little Miss Sunshine by Lella Boutique. Just look at this stack of blocks, can you see mine in that stack?

I forgot, this is a mystery so the blocks are cleverly hidden, but I can still see mine peeking out!   Here’s a clue to finding my block.  I’ve used 3 of the fabrics in the 9 patch below to make my mystery block.  Can you guess what three I used?  I just might surprise you!

Fat Quarter Shop has kits available and Kimberly will be doing a video each month showing you how to make the blocks.  This is going to be an adorable quilt!

I’ll be back on Monday to tell you about a little three-week sew along the Fat Quarter Shop is doing that involves my Spooky Delights fabric!

See you soon!

If you’re lucky enough to be at the Paducah Quit Show this week, be sure and look for a kitty named Noel. She’s sweet and cute as can be. Don’t worry, she’s not lost, she has a wonderful home. She belongs to Pam Seaberg who has captured her in thread and stitched her on a quilt. You’ll find Noel in the quilt exhibits at Paducah! I call Pam my friend because we met through this blog and Bunny Hill, but she’s more than a friend. She’s an artist I look up to and I think you will too when you see her work.  If you go, be sure and take pictures for us, because neither Pam nor I can be at the show this week.

Have you ever seen anything so beautiful as Noel?  Well, Pam’s been entered in many quilt shows and who knows where you’ll find her next.  Here’s another one of her beauties to enjoy, she calls this one “The Sleeping Artist”:

Someday I’m going to stand with Pam in front of one of her quilts and we’ll have our picture taken together.  I think we’ll both be grinning from ear to ear because of the excitment!

Now, here’s another one of my favorite pictures.  This was taken a few weeks ago when my son Doug and his family were here for a visit.  Babies are so brave when they hold Dad’s hand.  I wonder what Maya was thinking as that wave touched her toes? That’s a mighty big ocean for such a little girl, but when you’re 1-year-old, the world is yours to explore. I loved having Maya and Lily here for a few weeks.

Now that they’re back home in Germany, I’ve got some catching up to do.  I’ve fallen behind on my Splendid Sampler blocks, but hopefully I can catch up in just a few weekends.

If you’re doing the Splendid Sampler, I hope you’re enjoying it!  If you’re in Paducah look for Pat Sloan!  She’s 1/2 of The Splendid Sampler organizers and she’s teaching this week at Paducah.  Email me a picture of you and her together in Paducah holding a sampler block, You’ll be entered into my exclusive Bunny Hill contest.  You could win a basket of treats from Bunny Hill!  I’ll announce the winner and show your photo sometime next week.

Have a great week everyone.  Guess what’s shipping this week from Moda?  It’s Spooky Delights!

 Hugs,

Anne
