Louise - Love the owls! Geez sure do wish I could follow my favorite local quilt shop owner and be able to have a preview of what she chooses for us for the coming months. What fun that would be. Also anxious to see your new line and Bren’s as well. Have a wonderful time

gailss1 - Have a great time at “Market” and will watch for news….love those little owlets, how adorable!

October 25, 2014 - 2:34 pm

mimi'sdarlins - How fun to be heading to market again! During a recent shop hop, I couldn’t resist your Mistletoe Lane fabrics, they’re even prettier in person.
Love the little owls and must send this to a friend who watches endangered owls on camera. They are in a preserve so they can hopefully breed and have a better chance of survival.
Have fun at market!

October 25, 2014 - 8:40 pm

Erin Stewart - Those owls!!! You really must weave them into a pattern somewhere so we can use the fabric and see them every day too. ;)

I hope you’ve had a lovely time at quilt market!

October 28, 2014 - 12:09 pm

Loris Mills - I love those burrowing owls! We have enjoyed one or two each year hanging out with us through the winter. I think it was so dry this past year that they didn’t visit. I missed them.

Lynn Koeppen - We wished we could have met you at the Quilt Festival. We were disappointed that very few designers stayed for the Festival. Maybe next time! :-)

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

May 17, 2014 - 7:22 pm

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

May 17, 2014 - 7:40 pm

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.

May 17, 2014 - 8:23 pm

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

May 18, 2014 - 6:23 am

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.

May 18, 2014 - 10:19 pm

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

May 19, 2014 - 6:07 pm

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.

All Treats, No Tricks

I rushed home from market to make the long promised clown costume for my granddaughter.  Just finished it last night and we’re all set for trick or treating tonight.  I’ll try to get a few photos to share with you later. As you prepare for the neighborhood kids to come for candy tonight, take a […]

Marcel meet Rudy

There I was taking photos of Rudy, my latest Petite pattern. Rudy’s getting ready for market, and a few friends joined him… Poor Rudy, it’s getting a bit crowded around here…   But there’s always room for one more don’t you think? Especially for a black cat named Marcel! Wish I could fit him in […]

Mama Spark - Marcel would most definitely be a HUGE hit at market. What a beautiful boy he is. Did you know that black cats are the last ones to be adopted from shelters? I’m glad this beautiful boy has such a great home!!

October 24, 2013 - 4:49 am

Holly Hendershott - Marcel is a handsome man. I have a girl named Chloe who is the spitting image of him.

October 24, 2013 - 5:46 am

Karen Miller - Love, love, love Rudy! and nice to know Marcel is so “cool” about it.. just hanging out with Rudy and his crowd. Lucky critter ! Have fun at Market – can’t wait till the day when I can be there too! One step at a time… Take good care.

Karen on Keuka

mimi'sdarlins - Way too cute! I love these little critters you create. Marcel does seem to want to go along….in that last photo he looks especially wishful. Are you sure you can’t squeeze him into the bag with the Rudies?

October 24, 2013 - 8:34 am

Barb - Just carry Marcel in your carry-on bag! Who could possibly resist such a handsome fella?

As for Rudy. . . so cute! Have fun at Market and please report back and share it with us.

October 24, 2013 - 9:17 am

Hildy - Marcel would be a hit that’s for yure! But I think he wouldn’t appriciate. Perhaps you should one Rudy left behind to keep him company. Have a great time at market!

October 24, 2013 - 11:56 am

Kay - Have a wonderful time, you lucky lady! Rudy is just gorgeous.
