Kindred Spirits has shipped

Moda started shipping Kindred Spirits last Friday!  You’ll be able to find it in quilt shops by next week.  When Moda says shipping in August they really mean it.  UPS trucks are carrying United Notion boxes all over the country filled with Kindred Spirit fabric.  Hey UPS guys, the heavier the box, the more Kindred […]

DeAnna Dodson - Oh, that’s too sweet! I love the dots. Love them!

Every quilt should have polka dots.

Just sayin’.

Janine - what a beautiful fabric. Sooo my colours.

August 23, 2015 - 10:14 am

Hildy - Have fun sewing with your friends! But it’s really not nice that your fabrics will arrive while you’re out of town. Especially if the farbics are that beautiful:-)

August 23, 2015 - 12:13 pm

sunny - Oh my! I think I’m in love. What beautiful fabrics! I hope you can sleep at night while you’re away knowing what’s waiting for you at home!!

Colleen - Oh no you are going away again the puppy dog is going to miss you so much. To bad that beautiful fabric means nothing to the dogs .
Have a ball with your friends and be glad the fabric didn’t come just as you were leaving or right before leaving so you couldn’t see and feel it up close.

mimi'sdarlins - Hi Anne,
I’m so behind in reading my favorite blogs and have a hundred emails highlighted so I won’t forget them. I almost missed this post! I’m up to my ears in grandbabies (happily), gardens, quilts and all the other stuff that consumes a day.
This line is SO darling, I truly can’t wait to get some! I may have mentioned this before, but I had a favorite summer outfit of shorts, pedal pushers and blouse in these colors and you’ve recreated this vintage look perfectly.

Traveling with Applique

I was asked by Moda to share any tips I had on traveling with applique.  This really got me thinking, and I realized I hadn’t shared with you the applique travel case a friend made for me!  I use this case so much it’s become a part of me.  It goes to the Dr’s office, the dentist, car rides and quilt […]

Hildy - Read your tips on the Moda blog thanks for sharing! I have another one for you: instead of whole spools I’m using bobbins to take with me. These are smaller and if you need a few colors (and maybe be away on a vacation) it’s really practical. Have a great 4th:-)

July 3, 2015 - 12:15 pm

Mary T Salmon - Hi Anne!

I use a plastic zippered pouch! This would certainly advance my appliqué expertise to a new level. I love it! I will check it out on Sunday. Thanks for the sale.

Have a great 4th. I hope the fire works don’t scare your babies.

Love,
Mary

July 3, 2015 - 12:29 pm

DeAnna Dodson - Oh that’s too cute! Aqua is my new favorite color, and everything should have at least some polka dots in it. Precious! :)

July 3, 2015 - 12:42 pm

Carole Crane - This is to cute, love the mini mat! Thank you for sharing. Have a safe 4th!

July 3, 2015 - 2:08 pm

patricia G Hayes - Thanks for pattern for appliqués pouch. I plan to order on Sunday. What a delicious idea to keep everything all intact. Holiday time and do enjoy!!

sunny - How perfect! I think I need one of these. I try to have handwork with me wherever I go. You just never know when you might get a few minutes to do some stitching.

July 3, 2015 - 7:58 pm

Susan - That looks like the perfect little bag for handwork!

July 3, 2015 - 8:14 pm

Ruth - What a great and very cute idea. Thanks for letting us know about the sale, this pattern will be in my basket (along with one or two, ok who am I kidding, other items).

Margaret M - What a clever traveling pouch! I love the color. It matches my new Ikea rolling cart that I purchased to give me more space while hand or machine sewing at home. Looking forward to Sun. sale and the next heart. Happy 4th!!!

July 4, 2015 - 5:40 am

Shelley Parham - I’m looking forward to the Snow Happy Hearts for June and July. Can’t wait to see them!

July 4, 2015 - 6:42 am

mimi'sdarlins - This is such a great case, looks like it holds everything you need for projects. I have something similar a friend made (but not as compact) which I use whenever I hand sew, and it’s so convenient. Ok, now I just have to remember to check out your sale before it ends! Happy 4th, Anne :)

July 4, 2015 - 8:26 am

Karen in Breezy Point - Oooh–hard to resist a sale! Happy Fourth!!

July 10, 2015 - 5:53 am

Barb - Oh drat! I missed the sale but I love this travel case! Very clever and I imagine so useful. Nice to have everything you need contained so well. Thanks for sharing this with us.

July 12, 2015 - 4:40 am

Kathy Marx - How fun to see this, as I have one just like it! I made mine at least 10 years ago and liked it so well I made another four for family member Christmas gifts. Everything you mentioned is right about this wonderful little carry along sewing kit!

Happy Holidays!

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday week of fun and relaxing! Yesterday I took Diana and my grand-daughters into San Francisco to see the Nutcracker Ballet.  We rode Bart and then walked a few blocks to an area they call “The Plaza”.   It’s a beautiful area and it was filled with […]

Pat Godkin - Dear Anne: thank you for sharing your holiday celebrations. I was thrilled to see you will be at Homespun Holly 2015. I have registered for my 2nd year!! It will be great to finally meet you in person.

December 24, 2014 - 9:57 am

Mary T Salmon - Lily will love her puppy!
I hope to mark a quilt tomorrow. I finished my Bunny Hill quilt for granddaughter, Sarah. I made a pillowcase to match. I use your satin ruffle, just like the pattern and used it on the pillowcase too.
Have a wonderful Christmas, Anne.
Love,
Mary

julie zaloudek - A trip to San Francisco and the ballet–what a fun way to start the holiday celebration!
We’ve done some lunch/shopping outings to get in the spirit. I went to Starbucks this morning. Tamales and posole tonight, presents and good food tomorrow. Along with tossing treats from Santa to the cats!
Have a wonderful and relaxing Christmas–all the best to you and your family in 2015!

December 24, 2014 - 1:41 pm

Karen S. - What a beautiful day in the City! And “little Chelsea” is just adorable. What a sweet gift for little Lily. Merry Christmas to all of you, and thank you for all you give us throughout the year!

December 25, 2014 - 3:57 pm

Tammy - Merry Christmas. The ballet sounded wonderful.

December 26, 2014 - 5:48 pm

Barb - Ah, The Nutcracker is such a charming way to celebrate the holidays – how fun for all of you. Chelsea’s “twin” is just too adorable – like Chelsea herself. And the Santa ornament from Ireland is so beautiful – what a wonderful gift!!

I do hope you had a peaceful, joyous and very Merry Christmas!

Miss Jean - Happy New Year, Anne! Next year, if you don’t want to travel to San Francisco, The Gallo Theater in Modesto has a fabulous Nutcracker performance. The daughters of our friends are in it.

working behind the scenes

Last night while you were sleeping we launched our new website.  As with anything new, it may take us a few days to work out any glitches, but I’m hoping we don’t have any!  We’ve tested it, and then tested it again, and like a mother pushing a bird out of the nest, last night […]

mimi'sdarlins - What fun1 I’ll be checking this out as soon as I get an extra few minutes….or maybe right now :)

November 22, 2014 - 7:03 am

Pat Godkin - Congratulations on the new website! I am going to give it a whirl!

November 22, 2014 - 7:07 am

Hildy - Your new website looks great and thank you, thank you, thank you for the PDF option. Shipping is a killer and quite often an argument to not buy a pattern.

November 22, 2014 - 7:43 am

DeAnna Dodson - Ooooh, I love the digital pattern option. As mentioned above, shipping can be a killer for just a pattern. I love the new site! :D

November 22, 2014 - 8:40 am

Pam in Indiana - Hi Anne!
I’m looking forward to your website! But I’m not able to go there. When I click on the link I get a funky outline of the site. Is it my iPad or is the problem on your end?

I also get a “buy this domain name” when I type in bunnyhill.com….

Thanks!
Pam

November 23, 2014 - 3:56 am

Karen - Hi
For the ladies who have been denied access by their phone or iPad when this happens a screen will come up one of the options is ‘details’ take that. On the next screen at the top left corner should be ‘accept’ then you’ll be good to go. Hope this helps.
Looks Fabulous. Thanks for all your hard work Anne.
