I wish I could make everyone who entered the Moda/Bunny Hill contest a winner!  There were so many cute stockings it was really hard to choose! And because there were so many great entries I added four runner-ups for a total of seven winners!  I’ll be shipping prizes out all week!

So here we go, are you ready?  First place winner is Shannon Cogswell from Fullerton, California

Shannon entered way more blocks than this one, each as special as the one before.  I selected her mouse not only for its cuteness but also because it’s going to look so ADORABLE in our surprise mystery quilt!   We’re re-making her block using embroidery and applique.  If you’re joining me on the mystery journey coming up soon, Shannon will be featured in block number four!

Second place goes to Julie Zaloudek from Humble, Texas

Julie also submitted multiple blocks,  but when you see how her gingerbread man fits into my mystery quilt you’ll know why I picked it!   Julie will be featured in block number eight!  Thank you, Julie, for such a cute block!

Third Place goes to Lori Weigel of Newport Beach, California

Lori Weigel is our third place, winner.  Yes, she also submitted multiple blocks but she made it a little harder to choose.  This little snowman will be featured in block number eleven!  Lori used my ornament fabric and fussy cut that little angel.  What ornament will you use if you join me?

As the entries came in there were some blocks that I knew were works of art! Each one made me smile!  These ladies not only have the talent they also have creativity.   To duplicate these blocks so that all of you could make them in a weeks time would be difficult, but I knew they needed to be declared winners!  So Lynn, Kathleen, Martina and Nancy, congratulations on being a winner in my contest!  You’ll each get a quilt kit so you can join me on my sew along starting July 7th.  along with some designer rolls of Sugar Plum Christmas and Lily & Will Revisited.  

I hope each of the winners features their own special block when they make the upcoming mystery quilt.  Who knows, you may each want to design enough blocks to do your own quilt!  Thank you to each and every one of you who entered!

Today I hand the reins over the Kathy Schmitz who will host the month of June for the Moda design contest!   Head on over to The Cutting Table Blog from Moda for Kathy Schmitz!

Back soon,

If you’re sitting around with not much to do this afternoon, hop on over to my website and click on the “free” pattern page!

What is Sugar Plum Stocking Treats you ask?  It’s one of those applique quilts that I occasionally design as a free pattern!  But this time, instead of it being a block of the month, I’ve made it a block of the week!

I’m letting you know about this pattern a month ahead of time so you can get prepared!  Print out the information page and materials list.  If you read about it now, you’ll have time to choose your fabrics, pick your layer cake and get ready to sew along with me!  We’ll be making one block a week and you can do this!  The blocks are easy and oh so cute!  I promise you a quilt before Christmas if you keep up with me!  Here’s the schedule:

Now just think…if you sew along with me every week you’ll be able to ask me questions, I’ll try to answer them, and even give you tips as I think of them.  The pattern is FREE and the quilt is cute!  I’m giving you a sneak peek on my Free Pattern page so you’ll have an idea of how it looks.  You’ll just need to use your imagination and add 12 darling applique blocks!    This pattern will be available for a limited time so be sure and print each block as I post them.  The fabric I’ve selected is Sugar Plum Christmas (of course) and it’s still readily available.

To make this easier for some of you, I’ve put together quilt kits with everything you need to make the quilt top and binding. You’ll just need to add 3 1/4 yds backing!  I also have Comso Floss kits available and I’ll be adding an embellishment kit very soon (you are GOING to want the embellishment kit, but you won’t need it until the end).

I know some of you are going to ask me, what if you already have a fat quarter bundle or a fat eight bundle of Sugar Plum Christmas, can you use it?  Yes, you’ll just need to add the additional yardage from the materials list.

So get ready everyone!  July will be here before you know it, and I hope you’ll be celebrating Christmas in July with me!

Tomorrow, bright and early, I’ll be announcing the winners of the Bunny Hill stocking design contest!

Back soon!

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.

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

Hugs,
