Living Quilt Market Vicariously

It’s quilt market weekend and I’m living it vicariously through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  You can too, if you put in the hashtags, #quiltmarket or #showmethemoda in one of your apps.  Here’s a picture I found on Twitter just a bit ago.  It’s 2 of my friends, Kimberly at Fat Quarter Shop and Doug Leko […]

Patricia G Hayes - Wow, sounds like you are truly busy however a fun time with all your new projects soon to be shown to us. I would like to have my doggie but as we are still traveling some after my back surgery heals I cannot have one as yet. Boo Hoo am so anxious to have a pet doggie too, Anne. HUbbie want to travel some more, especially to NH and PA.

I am in the middle of a project adding my Sticky Fabri-Solvy and ran out tonight, Sat night, so that is why I sent that quick message to you. I will manage just fine till I hear from you.’

So I shall manage till I hear whether you are still selling it. PGH, Florida

SandyG - Congratulations, one more chemo treatment to go for your DIL and all of you. That is exciting news!
We look forward to seeing the new patterns. xx

Anita - Where do you go for your farmers market? I’m local and would love to check it out :) thanks!

Miss Jean - Our local farmer’s market is a treasure trove of doggies being walked! Not sure why they wouldn’t allow them there. Chelsea and Milkshake would be good! Boy, those cherries look amazing! We just started getting them here. I found some in the store the other day – pitiful looking! I can’t wait to see your new patterns. I love market time. Do you happen to know the link to the video Moda does every time with all the designers? I always look forward to it.

Take care and Mollie and Maggie send their best.

DeAnna Dodson - Wow! You’ve been busy! Looking forward to seeing all your new stuff when it’s available.

What beautiful produce. Delicious. And Milkshake sure looks cute. :D

mimi'sdarlins - Hi Anne! I was surprised to see Doug’s picture at the top of your post. I met him when he was just 12 or 13, already designing quilts at that young age. His family used to own/operate a local quilt shop. Such a nice young man and so talented. I’ll miss seeing your quilt booth this time around but look fwd to all the new patterns. I’m so glad that your DIL is near the end of treatments.

pam - I’m with you Anne, watched social media all weekend. I missed the people for sure, but seeing postings about cancelled and delayed flights and the hot setup, not so sad. Glad to hear that your DIL is at the end of her treatment and hope that she is responding well. She’s lucky to have a nice mother-in-law like you. Love the pictures of the dogs. That name, Milkshake, just cracks me up. So cute. xop

ina - our favorite strawberry guy is back at the farmer’s market near us….we’ve missed him all winter! yay for fresh fruit other than an apple or banana! ;p

Barb - Can’t wait to see your new patterns. Based on everything you’ve ever designed /made in the past I just know they will all be too, too wonderful!!

I’m so happy to read that your precious DIL is nearing the end of chemo – I’m sending my prayers to all of you. Blessings and strength.

I Believe

I’ve believed in Santa, Snowmen and fairy tales since my earliest memories.  Where would the world be without Frosty the Snowman or stories of Santa at the North Pole?  Children believe, and are more than willing to share that innocence with us.  It’s a wonderful, whimsical feeling that makes us smile and feel young again.

Barb - This quilt is just too wonderful! I think you outdo yourself every time!! Between your wonderful quilt design and Nubin Jensen’s quilting, I think you definitely have a Blue Ribbon winner here!!

I think I may have to attempt this amazingly charming quilt.

Carole crane - Another job well done!

May 1, 2014 - 10:21 am

liz n. - Will the pattern be available by itself? Your design is (as usual) wonderful!! I’d love to make this one in blue and white for my daughter to add to her blue and white quilt collection!

May 1, 2014 - 10:37 am

Mary on Lake Pulaski - This is just an amazing and heartwarming quilt Anne! Will the people at market get to view it in person! I’ll be keeping an eye out for a kit! Winter Wonderland is the BEST Christmas fabric in a long time!

May 1, 2014 - 12:54 pm

DeAnna Dodson - Oh, that’s darling. And, yes, the quilting is just right. So cute!

May 1, 2014 - 1:35 pm

linda - This reminds me of Christmas when I was a toddler. I had a red and white printed stocking (it looked like a real sock) and so did my twin sister. And those red rubber boots! Oh to be little again and enjoy all the wonders of that age. :)

Leeanne - Beautiful! I am always very careful when quilting stitchery quilts. I usually never quilt over the designs, unless of course my customer asks me to, but this quilt is lovely!

malen - ES PRECIOSA!

May 4, 2014 - 1:38 pm

rosa - This quilt is just fantastic and love your fabric combo

May 7, 2014 - 2:50 pm

Vicky - I almost messed up because I forgot to order this one! I found the kit at FQS — whew! I’m totally in love with your applique and embroidery quilts. They just keep getting more cute!

When the husband becomes a designer

My husband’s a car nut.  A real honest to goodness car nut, because he says he’s owned and sold about 75 old cars over his lifetime (I picture him at the age of 7 buying and selling).  I tell him I wish we had the money he’s put into restoring all those cars, and he […]

Linda - Love this quilt. Glad your husband weighed in on the design for the cars. What a fun, whimsical quilt!

April 18, 2014 - 5:14 am

Vicky - He did good! This quilt is adorable. Is that an oil can I see? Love it!

April 18, 2014 - 9:06 am

annie - Very cute and original design! Love it!

April 18, 2014 - 7:48 pm

Kathryn Casavant - You both do great work together. Cute quilt!

April 19, 2014 - 3:46 am

Barbie - This is very cute but I’d love, love, love a pattern with a lot of vintage cars or “muscle cars”! Something we could use to make quilts for the guys in our lives with a more masculine flair. I predict it would be a great seller and your husband just might have a new hobby designing blocks a guy would like!

April 19, 2014 - 7:05 am

Betty Grove - You’ve done it again and with the help of a supportive husband. My DH is spot on when it comes to colors and he is my go to guy when I can’t decide. Barbie has a terrific idea in having your husband design a quilt for men with vintage cars. My husband can name the year and model of any car you show him. We have the money spent on golf and the money spent on fabric, but ’nuff said. On the car quilt it would have to have a bunny or two for sure.

April 19, 2014 - 7:26 am

Susan K in Texas - This is wonderful. My dad was a mechanic and I know more about cars than my husband. He drives one to get somewhere. I want one that’s fun to drive and looks good.I would like to know where to get a kit.

April 19, 2014 - 11:05 am

Carrie P. - too cute. Love all the little blocks but for some reason the little stop light is my favorite.

April 25, 2014 - 9:43 am

Sandy - I have been missing Alma so much recently and that in turn made me think of you – I then came across this post and it just made me smile Alma would be telling me this story and oh how she adored you both. I love that your work both went into this! Hugs to you both and your in my prayers-May you feel better soon sandy

Trudy Moye - This was too funny. My husband has a barn full of motorcycles, cars, trucks, tractors, and a bulldozer. I have a cabinet full of fabric, books, and quilt patterns. After 30 years we neither one say a word about our habits. It’s made for a pretty happy life. I do want to point out that his barn is way bigger than our house. My cabinet isn’t that big…..just saying! Lol

Winter Wonderland is on the way

For me, it seems like it’s taken forever, but Winter Wonderland is finally shipping this week!  You’ll be able to find it at your local quilt store, or favorite online shop very soon.  Just picture those UPS trucks filled with boxes of Winter Wonderland fabric, leaving the Moda warehouse.  It must be a sight to […]
