June 2, 2014 - 7:19 pm

Joan - Those are adorable! I started doing needle punch years ago and that cute little rabbit on the scooter is all I need to get me going again.;)

I also just finished your christmas wheels pattern – what fun!

June 2, 2014 - 9:34 pm

Peggy M.pe - I love these adorable little needle punch patterns. I bought the tools from you to try this technique quite awhile ago and still haven’t done it. Maybe I’ll try the pink reindeer. She’s awesome.
I do read your blog just rarely comment. Sorry. I like your idea for your current giveaway. We need to let you know we are out here following you. Always inspired by your wonderful projects. I have four ready and waiting for me to dig in!

Louise - Love the punchneedle. I took a class a few years ago and haven’t made any thing since. I need to start again and I think your patterns are the inspiration

June 3, 2014 - 4:30 pm

Marcia - Awww, your punch needle patterns are adorable. And I like the way you are doing a give away to the people that posted on your last blog post. I didn’t but I’m sure there is someone there that never wins and will really appreciate this.

June 6, 2014 - 7:18 pm

Mary T Salmon - Anne:
I have never tried this but does not look difficult.
Since my nickname is Wamb (supposed to be lamb but I could not pronounce the “L.”), I will have to try the lamb…but the bunny is so cute!
Love,
Mary

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.

May 1, 2014 - 8:52 am

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. :)

May 1, 2014 - 5:19 pm

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!

May 2, 2014 - 12:06 am

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

May 6, 2014 - 6:37 am

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

Sewing with friends

When you start the day with flowers and friends it just doesn’t get any better……unless you add sewing to the mix!  Friday was Mollie Makes day at Bunny Hill and we spent the day sewing with friends! My friend Chickie brought show and tell;  beautiful Scrappy Plate blocks as only Chickie can do.  She’s appliqued […]
