It’s the kitty block!

It’s time for the kitty block on the Fat Quarter Shop Snapshots quilt along!  “Here kitty kitty” will get you a surprising welcome at my house, so this block is the perfect one for me. Oh wait, that’s the wrong picture!  I was going to put this one in later when I told you what kitty […]

mimi'sdarlins - What a darling block! It may be replacing the bicycle block as my new favorite :)

September 15, 2015 - 8:33 am

DeAnna Dodson - Awww! I knew this one would be my favorite!

Don’t you look pretty, Moochers! :D

September 15, 2015 - 9:05 am

Hildy - This is my favorite block in the whole quilt! And believe it or not I have a gray cat her name’s Lara (and a tiger cat named Merlin) and she’s beyond thrilled that she has her own block (but it’s not nice that she’s teasing poor Merlin because Kimberly missed to make a block for him, too;-) But I’ll change my cat a bit to make her more cat-like … let’s see how that works out.

September 15, 2015 - 10:35 am

Mama Spark - You know how much I love my kitties. I was super excited for this block!! Can’t wait to make 4 of them, one representing each of my 4 cats! Give moochers a BIG hug from me please!!!

September 15, 2015 - 12:21 pm

niki - “sew” cute! love cats

September 15, 2015 - 2:36 pm

Linda - Aww, Moochers looks just like my beloved CC (short for church cat) who I miss very much! She was a stray who stole our hearts. Thank you for making a gray kitty block.

September 15, 2015 - 5:47 pm

RuthB - Sooo cute. And the kitty with the pink heart is priceless.

September 16, 2015 - 3:18 am

Susan - I LOVE it! You have done a great job fabric choices to match your kitty!!!

September 16, 2015 - 5:52 am

Sigi G - Oh, love your cat – reminds me of our ‘Sebastian’ cat. Couldn’t say no to our daughter, when she brought him home with her from Vet school; but our dogs were fine with him – and ‘our’ cat ended up having a special place in my heart!!
Love your block and thank you for designing it!

September 16, 2015 - 6:13 am

Karen in Breezy Point - Moochers looks very regal perched on top of that quilt!

September 16, 2015 - 8:34 am

Betty G. - Moocher is very handsome. He looks sad in the last picture, is that because he knew the article was over and there were no more pictures? Love the block, but then there aren’t any blocks that I don’t love. Thanks for sharing.

September 16, 2015 - 11:43 am

Barb R - Oh, Moochers is just to adorable! She truly deserves her very own block. This could be my very most favorite block of all (although I love every one of them!!), but I am a little partial to the dog block and hope to make it look like my sweet little doggie. What we won’t do for our furry babies!

September 17, 2015 - 11:53 am

Juanita in OH - Moocher’s is ADORABLE! I LOVE the expression on her face, like when you see an add and we can hear what the cat is thinking, I imagine her thinking ” since you didn’t put a pink bow on it I will have nothing to do with it!”. Give her a smooch from me. I think this is such a creative block, purrfect. TFS.

Doxie Dog Fever

I’m back from Quilt Market and feel like I have a fever…Doxie Dog Fever!  These little dogs were a hit at market. Apparently a lot of you are Doxie lovers.  There’s something about those little long bodies and big droopy ears that we all seem to love. Here’s the real life Lulu sleeping on my sweater when […]

Hildy - Anne, thank you, thank you, you’re the best:-)
Love your Doxie dog it’s really cute especially in pink!
It says on Charlotte’s blog that the dogs will be good for 3-5 days … let’s face it they won’t survive this long with me.

May 29, 2015 - 11:15 am

DeAnna Dodson - Oh, the “Lulu” quilt is precious. When do we get to hear more about market?

Good to have you back. :)

May 29, 2015 - 11:19 am

Anita K - Your pups are adorable, and so are those cute buttons. Can’t wait to see your new pattern. Maybe making one of those quilts will cheer me up, my chihauhau, Boston Terrier mix “Scooter” went missing over a month ago and I miss him something terrible. Thanks So Much for Sharing your talent with us..

May 29, 2015 - 9:38 pm

Katherine Schaffer - As the grammie to a mini Daschie (Stanzi by name) I just love the new pattern. No surprise that folks love daschies- they are the cutest ever and they have feet that smell like popcorn!!

May 29, 2015 - 10:44 pm

Nancy B. - Finally, some competition for Scottie dogs! I love the doggie pillow in pink, my favorite color!, and a Dachshund too, yippee! The quilt looks precious, the fabrics are perfect, I can’t wait to see the whole thing! We had Dachshunds when I was little. They are wonderful dogs.

I love your doxie quilt as much as the petite pattern, so adorable! Who doesn’t love a flowered pup? Charlotte’s handmade candy bars are a hoot, they remind of The Simpson’s dog :) Looking fwd to hearing more about Market!

Snow Happy Hearts for May

Hopefully you’re busy stitching away on your Snow Happy Hearts snow lady for May.  I’m a little late blogging about her, because I’ve had so many last-minute things to do to get ready for quilt market.  Just in case you haven’t seen the pattern yet, I’ve linked you to it below. Snow Happy Hearts May We’re […]

DeAnna Dodson - This may be my favorite of your hearts patterns so far. Love the sweet garland of flowers. SO Spring!

Lulu is darling. :D

Can’t wait to hear about your Market experiences.

May 9, 2015 - 11:41 am

Hildy - Love your snow lady! I really need to start with this project but so far I’ve downloaded all the patterns and printed them. Perhaps next week (due to a holiday on thursday it’s a three day week for me:-)
To sad that Mark didn’t give in and let you bring your two troublemakers … perhaps you should name two of the Lulu dogs after them (of course, Chelsea needs a pink one;-)
Have a great time at market (and wish Michaela Happy Birthday on tuesday)!

May 9, 2015 - 1:46 pm

mary stiles - love May’s snow heart. I am hoping to get going on them all now that I have finished quilting my Grandson’s hockey quilt.
I have a huge dog and 2 cats and they all hate when I leave them. Yours are so cute and your grand daughter is beautiful.
Happy market to you!!!
Mary Stiles

May 9, 2015 - 7:40 pm

Mary T Salmon - Anne:
Michaela is going to be 15?? I can’t believe it! She is gorgeous, BTW…I love the little Lulu…I used to have doxies…
Thanks for the pattern for May. I have not started it yet. You are so generous. Have a blast at market. Yes, I wish I could go. I used to work market for a Peruvian import company. I loved meeting people and writing up orders!

May 9, 2015 - 8:06 pm

kshackabq - Your granddaughter is beautiful! Have fun at market. Can’t wait to hear all about it.

May 9, 2015 - 9:18 pm

Christine B. - I loved this post all about the doggies in your life! Your granddaughter is lovely and I hope she has a lovely day for her birthday. Thank you for another lovely Snow Happy Hearts pattern…. she is very cute! Have a wonderful time at Quilt Market! :) x

May 9, 2015 - 9:57 pm

Beth - Wonderful little snowlady, darling puppies, beautiful granddaughter, adorable pattern! This blog has so much happy :) Have fun at Market!

May 9, 2015 - 10:39 pm

Colleen - Beautiful granddaughter and her dog is lovely too. Your howling Milkshake made me laugh then cry we had a wonderful dog (over the rainbow bridge now) who would bark when the door bell rang at home or on TV. She didn’t go to the door she just barked until we asked her to stop or she tried of barking. She also was the dog that walked on the TV remote and turned the TV on or off or changed channels. She was wonderful she lost her hearing we knew because she stopped barking at the door bell sound she got cataracts and couldn’t see we found out when we moved and she got lost on the patio. She never stopped changing the TV though

May 10, 2015 - 12:31 am

Laura Lynch - Anne, Thank you for posting the daring Snow Gal pattern this month… she’s so cute… love the red check fabric background… I think I might have something similar in my stash. Michaela is beautiful & looks so grown up. Lulu is really cute (both the furry & fabric Lulu)! You’ve worked so hard to get ready for the show & I can’t wait to see pics of the show too! Have fun with all your designing friends!


May 10, 2015 - 5:00 am

Sue - Have a wonderful time at market. Thank you for the darling snowman heart.

May 10, 2015 - 5:05 am

Lee - I adore the new pattern! The pic of your granddaughter and Lulu is lovely! I love doxies!

May 10, 2015 - 5:34 am

Julie - Me & My Stitches - I have to laugh when you say your husband is looking forward to you leaving! Mine is the same way when I am getting ready for a show – but at least I know my kitties miss me!

May 10, 2015 - 5:50 am

mimi'sdarlins - Hi Anne,
Chelsea and Milkshake were obviously upset about not going along to Market after all their planning and scheming. You’ll have to bring back a special treat for them so they’ll know you were thinking of them. Your granddaughter is so beautiful, and how she’s growing! I can see why her sweet little dog inspired you….I love the new petite pattern and so does my youngest granddaughter :)

May 10, 2015 - 8:04 am

Kay - Your dogs are so sweet. I am sure you will miss them too, but still have lots of fun. x

May 10, 2015 - 9:30 am

Karen in Breezy Point - Lulu is adorable–reminds me of the dogs we used to autograph at the end of the school year. I guess that kind of dates me–oops!

May 10, 2015 - 3:30 pm

Vicky - Lulu and Michaela are adorable! Love your newest little critter!

May 11, 2015 - 6:16 am

Barb R. - Oh Miss Michaela is just beautiful! A very Happy Birthday to her. I hope she has a wonderful year ahead of her. And, of course, Lulu is so adorable.

Then there is Milkshake & Chelsea – just about the two sweetest doggies ever! You can see how disappointed they are that they can’t go to Market. They’ll have to take care of your husband while you’re gone – oh, I can tell there will be mischief while you’re away!!! LOL!

Have a wonderful time at Market – looking forward to reading all about it and lots of pictures.

And, of course, thanks again for the May Snow Happy Heart – soooo cute!!!

May 11, 2015 - 7:11 am

Pat Godkin - Thank you for a great blog update! Lots of news.
Lucky Lulu’s going to market.
Michaela is growing into a beautiful young woman! Her Lulu is a sweet companion too.

May 15, 2015 - 7:31 pm

Malinda - The pups look so sad that you are leaving! Looking forward to the market report!

May 16, 2015 - 7:46 pm

Peggy - Hope you are enjoying Market! Can’t wait to hear your market recap.

May 17, 2015 - 10:41 am

Gale - Your granddaughter is absolutely beautiful and the cute little dog sure deserves to have a pattern of her. Good Luck with market and I look forward to seeing photo’s in the near future.

Hugs to Chelsea and Milkshake, they look so sad :(

May 26, 2015 - 9:31 am

Corinne - Love the dogs, too cute. The ornaments are beautiful, thank you

May 29, 2015 - 7:26 pm

Mary T Salmon - Oh Anne! Thank you! You are sooooo generous!
I have had many Doxies in my life. They are such a loyal & loving dog. Your new quilt is very adorable!

The best dottie mini charm quilt ever

Guess what I’ve got for you today?  It’s the best Dottie Mini Charm Quilt Kit ever, according to Milkshake! I promise, if she thinks this kit is great, it is!  You’ll want to grab one of these kits while we have them in stock, because the pattern I designed to go with it is FREE!   […]

mimi'sdarlins - Oh, so darn cute! I can never resist dots, have been collecting them for years and one of these days want to make a big quilt out of them. Love the button idea too….who doesn’t love buttons on a quilt? I see the look in Chelsea’s eye but Milkshake is obviously ignoring her. I’d stay out of this one, just let them work it out for themselves :)

March 4, 2015 - 6:34 am

Barb - Oh Anne, you’ve done it again. This Dottie Mini Charm Quilt is just too, too cute. I just love those little dots! I’m heading over to check out the kits on your website.

And as much as I love the Dottie, I absolutely love those pup-steers!!! Milkshake and Chelsea are just so cute! I wonder what they are looking at? Don’t you love how everything is just interesting to a dog? Give ’em both a hug and a scratch from me.

Thanks for sharing them with us!

March 4, 2015 - 8:25 am

DeAnna Dodson - Awww, that’s darling! I’ve been collecting polka dots for a long time. Someday I will make me a quilt that will burn everyone’s eyes. But it will be bright and happy! Hee hee.

Your dogs are SO cute! I especially love Milkshake. She looks a lot like my little girl cat, Eddie. She’s a tuxedo cat and so sweet.

March 4, 2015 - 8:46 am

Mary T Salmon - Anne:
You come up with the cutest projects! Does Milkshake come with the kit?
I won 3 of these at QuiltCon in Austin last week. I had no idea what to do with them until now. Thanks so much.

March 4, 2015 - 9:03 am

Hildy - Oh, your quilt pattern is so cute and yet simple I love it! And you can never be wrong with dots especially pink ones … right, Chelsea?;-)

March 4, 2015 - 10:22 am

Teresa - Thanks Anne that’s a lovely design

March 4, 2015 - 11:29 am

Marcia - That is so adorable, great idea for displaying shop hop pins. If you ever think of it could you tell us more about Milkshake? Did she adjust quickly and all settled in and happy?

March 4, 2015 - 8:56 pm

Sharon Whelan - So charming! Love it, Anne!

March 4, 2015 - 9:09 pm

Beth - So, so cute! And, YAY, for pics of Milkshake and Chelsea! I always love your pet blogs. So glad those two are friends :)

Karen in Breezy Point - I love Milkshake’s expression in the first photo–priceless! I don’t think she can believe that sweet pattern is FREE!!

March 5, 2015 - 12:54 pm

Danicia - I love, love, love your fabrics and patterns. I take my projects with me even when I travel. Keep up the great work.
