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 […]

    mimi'sdarlins - Oh my, these are beautiful artistic quilts, and probably spectacular in person! I love this photo too, I’m sure you started missing them the moment they got on the plane, it’s so hard to have loved ones far away :(

    Mary salmon - Thanks and for posting Pam Seaberg’s work. Someday she will be recognized with a first place ribbon! She has been a good friend and has taught me so much that she has really raise the bar in my quilting adventure!

    Your babies are so sweet. What a lovely picture of your son holding Maya’s hand at the beach. I know you miss them terribly. I hope your animal babies are doing well.

    Hildy - Love the cat quilts but then I love cats and quilts and both in one is the best! Or combined in fabric like in your new collection … I know I need some of the cat fabrics:-)
    Too sad that your family went back to Germany but it makes the time you spend together even more precious and special.

    Pat Godkin - Anne: so good to read your blog this month.
    I have seen the stitched portraits of dogs too. Amazing!
    I know how much the family visit meant to you with your sweet grand daughters.
    My son named the ocean waves as we walked along the beach, “the water that chases me”. I tell that one to my grand children today when we visit the beach.
    Your Splendid is looking good!
    Thinking of you this week as I am sewing up Winter Postcards for Cuties! I will be at Verna Mosquera’s retreat! Hugs!ReplyCancel

    Anita - Love all the pics especially your blocks and your son and grand baby :)ReplyCancel

What comes first, the fabric or the quilt?  Ever wondered about it? When I started designing, it was the fabric that inspired me.  I’d wait on pins and needles to see the newest lines from Moda.  I’d have several quits in my head and when I saw the right fabric I’d start designing. Oh joy […]

  • July 27, 2014 - 2:08 pm

    Judi - Please, please come out with a new baby line! Since most and I do mean most of the baby quilts I have made(and I have made 8) this year alone, the gender of the child is known. The one who didn’t actually know, took a sealed envelope with the gender info to her baby stuff store and they put away the blue ( in this case) choices she made.

    I desperately need pinks, blues, lavenders with greys and tsuoes. It seems every nursery was pink or blue with grey or taupe this past two years!

    Help! My children and their friends don’t want trucks, farm animals or robots!ReplyCancel

    Karen Miller - Nice to see a post from you Anne and congratulations on another new line from Moda! I just love all of the beautiful new fabrics and peruse them often for inspiration for a new Moda Bake Shop recipe or pattern. I’m a new pattern designer and am always inspired when I see your fabric and sweet BOM. I would love to learn more about the process… Can’t wait to see the line. Hugs, Karen

    Barb - Oh I love the name “Mistletoe Lane” just conjures up all sorts of ideas, thoughts and memories. I just know this is going to be extra-special – fabric always inspires so many possibilities.

    I’m with Karen Miller (above commenter) I’d love to learn and understand the process of fabric from inspiration to manufacturer – I know we would all be in utter awe of what it must take !

    Thank you, Anne, for sharing your talent, creativity and generosity with us.ReplyCancel

Sometimes I’m inspired by unexpected things.  I’ve been watching house renovation shows like “Love It Or List It” and “The Property Brothers” on HGTV.  They got me thinking about what makes a house a home, nesting, and how much love we all put into our homes. Soon I was sketching out a quilt and “The […]

    PAtricia G Hayes - HI Anne, Good for you, oh to be so talented as you. However I will enjoy the fruits of your labors.

    I, too, sit and do handwork while watching the very same shows as you. In fact grandson just called and told me how he wants to learn to do what those people do and I suggested to him that he watch those shows also. haha apropos

    Do you get kumquats out there also. We had a kumquat festival here in FL a few months ago, and I now have several peat pots growing with the seeds. Hopeful I will have some someday. I also love calamondins, neither of which I can get locally only the kums once a year.

    How wonderful that you have the other farms so close by.

    Happy Memorial Day PGHReplyCancel

    Mary T Salmon - Anne:
    I am floating on air. Thank you SO MUCH for the wonderful bag of scraps and FQs. I will use them in my House/Home quilt when I get the pattern. It will be a gift for my daughter and husband when they buy their first home.
    Thanks again!

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.
