Barb - What a hoot! After all the effort Milkshake and Chelsea have gone to, to get taken to quilt market I think they deserve their own seats on the plane hehehehe maybe even a seat next to the pilot! Who could resist those cute, pleading puppy faces, not me that’s for sure so Mr.Dunn if you do read this letter please let them come to market :) Barb.

April 27, 2015 - 6:32 am

Susan - I agree – Milkshake and Chelsea have worked hard to go. Besides, everyone will want to meet them! Have fun and looking forward to pictures soon!

April 27, 2015 - 6:33 am

Barb (a different Barb :-) ) - Since Chelsea & Milkshake have gone to so much trouble planning their trip to Market, I think we can all agree that they would be the ***Stars*** of the show! They will be great ambassadors for Bunny Hill Designs and your booth will be the best attended – definitely!

They are so cute – and obviously great company on the plane, in your hotel room & at Market.

Best wishes to all of you !

p.s. – when do the grandchildren get here from Germany?

April 27, 2015 - 6:34 am

Pam Seaberg - Anne,
You crack me up!!! You are so creative, I love this. We have to meet someday. Fondly, Pam

April 27, 2015 - 6:40 am

Mary T Salmon - I vote they go to Market!

April 27, 2015 - 7:12 am

Pat Godkin - Tuning in this morning to follow the doggy duo & their adorable efforts to get to Market. Hoping they will soon be sitting on a stack of bolts of your pretty new collection! (Just a hint)

April 27, 2015 - 8:05 am

sunny - I think you two should be allowed to go! I think I should be allowed to go, too, but that’s another blog post. Will be watching to see your exploits if you make it to the show.

April 27, 2015 - 8:13 am

Christine B. - Hope you get your wish and tag along to Quilt Market…. it looks like a lot of fun! :) x

April 27, 2015 - 8:42 am

Hildy - I think you really need to take these two to market! Imagine what they’ll do to your home when they relize you’re not taking them along!?!

April 27, 2015 - 8:52 am

Gale - Dear Mr. Dunn,
How can you not help these two sweethearts??? Oh how I wish I could be at spring market and meet them.

Way to go, Chelsea and Milkshake XO

April 27, 2015 - 2:15 pm

Susan K - You do know that dogs get all the attention and Milkshake and Chelsea will bring so much more traffic to your booth. They’ll help you sell so much more fabric because no one will want them to go without food and treats!

April 27, 2015 - 2:44 pm

April 29, 2015 - 12:46 pm

Helen LeBrett - Hee Hee Hee!!! Too cute!! I think they should go too: they could massage your tired toes at the end of each day!!”-) And they are so cute that more people would stay in your booth longer and order more fabric! Sounds like a win-win to me!! Have a great time at market!! Great post: loved it!!! Hugs, H in Healdsburg

April 29, 2015 - 3:16 pm

Charlotte - Great post. Very creative and obviously you know your way around the computer and photoshop or whatever it takes to put your puppies in those photos. Well done.


April 30, 2015 - 8:59 pm

Laura Lynch - Dogs just make everything so much more fun!! I think Mr. Dunn should let Chelsea & Milkshake be this year’s Moda Mascots!! Each year a different designer can have a chance to have their beloved “pet person” as the Moda Mascot! I’d vote for that! Good luck Anne . . . I’m rooting for ya! I love all you fabric designs . . . and thanks for the darling snowmen designs! You rock!

May 1, 2015 - 6:24 am

mimi'sdarlins - Well, if this doesn’t get these two scheming pups a couple of tickets, I don’t know what will! Be sure to keep us posted :)

May 15, 2015 - 7:35 pm

Malinda - What a fun post! Now we really know what’s going on in those furry little minds!

May 16, 2015 - 7:37 pm

Peggy - I’m with these sweet puppies! I’d love to go to market. Following you online with your market pics. Have fun!

Leaving for Quilt Market

It’s that time of year again when Houston Quilt Market comes around.  I leave very early Friday morning for Houston, and what a market Moda has planned!  The theme this market is “Get Comfy with Moda” and the designers have a fun school house planned.  If you’re a shop coming to quilt market don’t miss […]

Thanks for sharing the baby owls, adorable.

What a precious little bebbeh owl! I hope you’ll post more pictures if you get them. :D

October 23, 2014 - 3:01 pm

October 23, 2014 - 5:36 pm

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

October 23, 2014 - 11:07 pm

October 24, 2014 - 5:16 pm

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.

November 4, 2014 - 1:53 pm

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

May 17, 2014 - 6:05 pm

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

May 19, 2014 - 10:41 am

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 […]
