Playing with color

Playing around with color.  Isn’t that what we love about quilting?  I just finished teaching my Merry, Merry Snowmen class at Thimble Creek, our local quilt shop.  I had the best group of ladies ever.  They may not realize it but watching them inspired me! Just look at these beauties that came out of my […]

mimi'sdarlins - Hi, Anne,
I love seeing what others create and am constantly inspired by fresh color combos or seeing buttons and yo-yos used in unexpected ways. These are beautiful…you must be thrilled each time you see one of your patterns come to life. My local shop is doing your Merry, Merry Snowmen quilt as a BOM, and they’re just wrapping up Raining Cats & Dogs and Tiny Town (my personal fave). Their workroom is beginning to look like a division of Bunny Hill! Note: My hubby used to have a truck in that color, too :)

Susan - Love the snowman quilt!

Where can I find this pattern??

August 12, 2012 - 6:39 am

Wool & Dresdens

If you’re attending the Paducah Quilt Show next month be sure and search for Karolyn Reker’s version of YoYoville.     She “fussy cut” little critters for the windows and doors of the houses on the border!  Look how cute these are!  I haven’t seen all the critters yet so I’m counting on you to take photos […]

mimi'sdarlins - Wow, I LOVE Kim’s blocks, and those wool centers are gorgeous! Looks just like real flower centers. That YoYoville quilt is adorable too, what a sweet idea to add all the critters. I have that pattern and will definitely keep this in mind….how cute is the bunny one w/ just the ears in the window?

Diane R. - Beautiful job, Kim. Your quilt will be lovely!

Valerie Zulewski - The Dresden plates are wonderful-I love them! The YoYoville is adorable! I knew a Karolyn Reker years ago who lived in St. Charles, Missouri and I took an appliqué class from her. We were in the same guild for years before she moved. Karolyn created beautiful appliqué quilts!!! Thinking this is the same Karolyn? I will definitely look for her quilt in Paducah! Thank you!

Jennifer J - The quilting is amazing!! Of course, without an amazing quilt to start with, it wouldn’t mean anything. Did you tell her what to do, or did she do what she thought was best?

March 5, 2012 - 2:12 am

Renee - So beautiful. I am just discovering your blog and so glad that I did. Now to see what else I can discover.

March 5, 2012 - 6:27 am

Missy - I was wondering what size quilt this pattern makes? I am going to start on one for my mom in April, she needs a queen size, and I was also thinking of making a border with either fabric with butterflies or quilted butterflies for the border? I’m not sure which would be best?
This will be my second full-size quilt.

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 :)

March 6, 2012 - 11:49 pm

Larissa - Wow! The quilting in this is AMAZING!!! I have pegged this design idea for future reference and am looking forward to taking inspiration for my own quilting!! Always love a good dresden quilt!!!
