Snow Happy Hearts April

Hopefully you’ve been keeping up with these little patterns.  If you’re not planing on making them right away, make sure that you print off the patterns each month to save for the future.

If you missed the sneak peek in my newsletter yesterday, here’s a picture of what’s coming from Bunny Hill… Kindred Spirits  is in the studio and we’re working like crazy to get every thing made and patterns done.

 I am in love with this fabric line and I can’t wait to show you what we’ve got planned for it.  I hope I can tempt you with some applique! basket_(1_of_1)

Have a wonderful Easter everyone!  Hope that bunny brings you lots of chocolate!

Hugs,

Anne

liz n. - PIIIIINNNNNNK!!!!!

I rarely think I need an entire fabric collection, but THIS one, oh my!!

I will be using the “honey, you spent $200 on golf balls” argument when my husband asks if I “really need all that fabric.”

Any idea when they’ll be available?

April 5, 2015 - 10:50 am

DeAnna Dodson - Oh, this is darling. Thanks so much for these precious patterns. I always look forward to getting them. :D

leratdesfils - Joyeuses Pâques !

April 5, 2015 - 11:56 am

Judi - Thank you for pinks and blues! I so prefer your pinks and blues for my baby quilts. It seems EVERY Mom-to-Be wants either punk or blue with grey or taupe! Since the vast majority already know who is coming, I rarely ( not one in the last 3 years ) am asked about yellow, green or primaries! The one out of 18 who didn’t want to know the gender, brought the sealed results to her store so they would happier he pink or blue ready for pick up! I needed to make one of each!

April 5, 2015 - 1:11 pm

Hildy - Anne, Happy Easter to you and your family! I love your new collection the colors are gorgous:-) And thanks for another cute little snowman I really need to start with mine.

April 5, 2015 - 5:15 pm

Pat Godkin - Anne: I love the colors in the collection.
I’m on pins n needles to see a quilt pattern!!

April 5, 2015 - 5:30 pm

Barb - Oh Anne, this fabric line is just too beautiful! I don’t know how you do this – every time you come up with the Most Lovely Designs. I think these are “swoon worthy”. I cannot wait to see more.

April 5, 2015 - 6:30 pm

Peggy Mead - I absolutely love Kindred Spirits! The colors are beautiful! That fat quarter bundle is calling my name!!! So soft and pretty! Wow!

April 5, 2015 - 7:06 pm

April 5, 2015 - 7:14 pm

SandyK - I can’t believe we have to wait until August for this fabric!!! It is absolutely beautiful.

April 5, 2015 - 8:12 pm

Jean - Oh, be still my heart!!! I was putting fabrics together for a quilt for a two year old yesterday. Just yesterday! I needed pink, teal, gray and yellow. I couldn’t find teal so I am going another direction! This would have worked great if I could have found some soft yellow and some of your grays to mix with it. I may still have to do that. What’s better than a quilt? Two quilts!!

April 5, 2015 - 10:49 pm

Colleen - Lovely just lovely

April 6, 2015 - 1:28 am

Christine B. - Oh wow! That new line of fabric is absolutely beautiful! I love it! Can’t wait to see what you make with it! Hope you had a Happy Easter and thank you for the beautiful Snow Happy Hearts patterns, they are adorable! :) x

April 6, 2015 - 7:13 am

Karen in Breezy Point - Oh my–Kindred Spirits is gorgeous–the print in the body of the applique basket–wow!!

April 6, 2015 - 7:49 am

mimi'sdarlins - Oh Anne, these colors remind me of when I was a little girl, that perfect shade of pink with cocoa brown and turquoise :) I can’t wait to see the line up close…and what could be better than some of your darling applique to present it!

April 6, 2015 - 1:31 pm

Lynne Tilley - I cannot wait to see more of this fabric! So wonderful!!

April 6, 2015 - 2:10 pm

Sandra Daugherty - Such a beautiful color palette.

Snapshots Quilt Along Block Three

I thought I’d be creative and photograph my Snapshots quilt block with something green for St. Patrick’s Day.  The first thing I realized when looking around my house is that I don’t own very much in the way of green.  Certainly nothing that looks as cute as the tea kettle in this month’s block!

Snaphots_Block_Three_(1_of_1)

I did happen to find a vintage flower pot that belonged to my mother and I filled it with some shamrock plants.   Now for a cup of tea!

This is one of my favorite blocks.  Who doesn’t love a quilt star in the center of a tea kettle?  And have you ever seen such creative “steam”?

I’ve picked out the remainder of the fabric for my blocks and will start sewing them together soon.  This is going to be one happy quilt!

Hop on over to the Fat Quarter Shop and get your Tea Kettle block!

Hope you’ve had a great St Patrick’s Day!

Hugs,

Anne

DeAnna Dodson - Oh, that’s darling. And, yes, the steam is great. So cute! :D

March 18, 2015 - 1:18 am

Susan - Love your block! And your shamrock plant is the perfect accent. I think these tea kettle blocks make perfect mini quilts for kitchens. Fun!

March 18, 2015 - 1:34 am

Hildy - Love your floral kettle it looks so bright and ready for spring!

March 18, 2015 - 6:50 am

Barb - Happy St. Paddy’s Day to you too (although a day late – busy helping my mom yesterday.)

This is such an adorable happy quilt. I kinda think all quilts make me happy,

Your shamrock plant is so pretty in that pot that was your mom’s – it looks perfect!

March 18, 2015 - 7:42 am

mimi'sdarlins - This is such a darling block….I do wish I had time to sew along with this one, but it’s still fun to watch the blocks as they emerge :)

March 18, 2015 - 5:11 pm

Susan P - I’m not participating but following along at many blogs and I have to say your block for this pattern is the best. Your fabric choices are perfect!

March 19, 2015 - 6:07 pm

Lorraine Isaac - I love the tea pot, I am planning on making 3 or more and use for a table runner, or maybe a square table topper.

March 21, 2015 - 12:00 am

Tammy spencer - Love how this quilt is coming out for you so far.

March 25, 2015 - 5:43 am

Informative URL for Kit Elisa - Oh wow, that kettle pattern on your quilt is impressive.

Snow Happy Hearts for March

It’s already the month of March, can you believe it?  Are you ready for #3 of Snow Happy Hearts? It’s a snowman with a PINK lamb for a friend!  I love pink lambs so of course I include one when I can.  March seems like the perfect pink lamb month.

Barb - I think I read that lambs/sheep are a symbol of spring so this too cute pink sheep is a perfect companion for this snowman! I just love these Snow Happy Hearts – so fun and so cheerful! Thanks so much!

The neutral fabrics are beautiful and especially LOVE that cake stand – so pretty!!

Thanks again, Anne, for the wonderful Snow Happy Hearts projects!

March 5, 2015 - 7:13 am

mimi'sdarlins - So adorable! The new heart pattern always seems to surpass the previous month, you never fail! Love the neutral bundle, and I think the ice skates are my favorite little print in the whole line. Thanks for providing these darling free patterns :)

March 5, 2015 - 1:22 pm

By the way, I just picked up my Baltimore Bunnies quilt from my world-class quilter. SO cute! Thank you for designing my favorite pattern ever!

March 5, 2015 - 1:29 pm

Elizabeth Quigley - Hi Anne,
I love the new heart. I just place an order for the skate bundle. I love it too. Just an ideal. Could you make the hearts a kit each month? I love the little kits you make. Makes sewing so much easier.
XXOO

Mary T Salmon - Hi Anne!
I just got back from my retreat for the New Braunfels Area Quilt Guild. A lot of door prizes were your patterns! Thankfully, they were not any I did not have!
They were either bought donated by a quilt shop or you. Anyway, it was a blast other members are going to get hooked on Bunny Hill!
Love,
Mary

March 12, 2015 - 10:38 pm

Tammy spencer - I absolutely love your fabric line. I think pink and red go together perfectly! Your neutrals are to die for. I will be looking for these wonderful fabrics at my local quilt shop.

March 14, 2015 - 10:31 pm

Ondrea - Thank you so much for another gorgeous snow man. I know a few others who are loving this BOM as well as myself.As always, your patterns are delightful. Thankyou so much for sharing them with us.

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!

Milkshake Approved Kit

Milkshake Approved Kit

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!   Who doesn’t love dots, who doesn’t love mini charms, and who doesn’t love a free pattern?   I couldn’t help myself when I saw the Moda Dottie mini charm bundles.  I made them into a basic quilt pattern that you can use again and again with any Moda mini charm!

Bunny Hill Designs Dottie Mini Charm Quilt

Bunny Hill Designs Dottie Mini Charm Quilt

How fun is this?  Now, just think how you can use this little quilt.  Of course it’s the perfect little table mat for any Easter decoration you want to display.

Why not make two or three,  display them down the center of your table and they’ll make those Easter baskets look so cute!

Dott_ie_Quilt_with_buttons_(1_of_1)

Bunny Hill Dottie Mini Charm Quilt with buttons

Or, try this…sew a large pearl button to the center of each square and you’ve got instant wall art!  Or how about for those pins you collect?   My granddaughters collect pins when they’re traveling and now they’ve got pins from Germany, Canada and all over.  I think I’ll make them each a Dottie quilt using their favorite colors, purple Dottie for one and aqua Dottie for the other.  Then they can display their pin collection on their very own Dottie quilt!

Opps, I’d better watch what I say because I think my doggies have some ideas of their own.

Milkshake & Chelsea love Dottie Quilts! They each claimed a kit for their own today, and Chelsea wants to know if she can exchange the green Dottie for pink!  Dang that dog is pushy.

Here’s the pattern below, and you can find the kit on our website.  I’ll be back tomorrow with the March Snow Happy Heart AND, we’ve got a few more Snow Happy Fabric bundles we’ll be putting in stock a bit later today.

Moda Dottie Mini Charms and our Free Dottie Mini Quit Pattern…you’re going to love them!

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.
Love,
Mary

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 :)
