Wool & Dresdens

If you’re attending the Paducah Quilt Show next month be sure and search for Karolyn Reker’s version of YoYoville.     She “fussy cut” little critters for the windows and doors of the houses on the border!  Look how cute these are!  I haven’t seen all the critters yet so I’m counting on you to take photos […]

Sherryl - Oh those wool centers are wonderful. What a great idea! I don’t usually work with wool, but I love the look of this so much that I may just have to give it a go! Thanks for sharing.

Mary on Lake Pulaski - I LOVE the wool centers on the Dresden’s! Thanks so much for sharing that great idea – I will be using it!

mimi'sdarlins - Wow, I LOVE Kim’s blocks, and those wool centers are gorgeous! Looks just like real flower centers. That YoYoville quilt is adorable too, what a sweet idea to add all the critters. I have that pattern and will definitely keep this in mind….how cute is the bunny one w/ just the ears in the window?

Diane R. - Beautiful job, Kim. Your quilt will be lovely!

Valerie Zulewski - The Dresden plates are wonderful-I love them! The YoYoville is adorable! I knew a Karolyn Reker years ago who lived in St. Charles, Missouri and I took an appliqué class from her. We were in the same guild for years before she moved. Karolyn created beautiful appliqué quilts!!! Thinking this is the same Karolyn? I will definitely look for her quilt in Paducah! Thank you!

Janet - I hope you’ll post any pics you get of the YoYoVille quilt from Paducah – it’s on my “list” and I’d love to see the whole thing!

Karen - Anne, It’s beautiful — I’m starting a little late but I have my 24 fat quarters and my background fabric and I’m excited. Thanks for inspiring me to get going on this — A Dresden Plate quilt has been on my wish list for about 6 months now !!

Love the quilting and the colors !

March 5, 2012 - 12:19 am

Jennifer J - The quilting is amazing!! Of course, without an amazing quilt to start with, it wouldn’t mean anything. Did you tell her what to do, or did she do what she thought was best?

March 5, 2012 - 2:12 am

Renee - So beautiful. I am just discovering your blog and so glad that I did. Now to see what else I can discover.
I have just started quilting about 6 months ago and I am hooked!

March 5, 2012 - 5:27 am

Josie McRazie - I lOVE the quilting in this dresden plate!! Beautiful!!

March 5, 2012 - 6:27 am

Missy - I was wondering what size quilt this pattern makes? I am going to start on one for my mom in April, she needs a queen size, and I was also thinking of making a border with either fabric with butterflies or quilted butterflies for the border? I’m not sure which would be best?
This will be my second full-size quilt.

March 5, 2012 - 2:00 pm

Sara - Thank you so much for the Layer Cake fabrics! I won them on the Designer Mystery blog!

March 5, 2012 - 4:39 pm

pdudgeon - I’m so happy! i’ll be starting this quilt later this week. I’ve got all my fabrics and my eazy Dresden template should be comming soon. Now to stock up on blades and I’ll be all set. This is going to be such fun to make.

Love the quilting on your quilt.

March 6, 2012 - 11:32 am

mimi'sdarlins - This looks so pretty, Anne, and you have found a very talented quilter! I love what she’s done, has really enhanced your beautiful blocks. I am still working on my hand applique and going rather slowly due to other commitments, but I’m working as time permits and hoping to catch up this month. I’m enjoying the process and love seeing the inspiration in the group, and that’s the most important thing :)

March 6, 2012 - 11:49 pm

Larissa - Wow! The quilting in this is AMAZING!!! I have pegged this design idea for future reference and am looking forward to taking inspiration for my own quilting!! Always love a good dresden quilt!!!

Janan Doster - I wish to ThankYOU for your free project again this year. I am still working on my Henrietta quilt – I hope to have finsihed soon! But, I had to put Henrietta aside to start the Scrappy Plate. I love Primitives, working with wool, Lisa Bongeans’ wool kits, AND I JUST ADORE YOUR FALL WOOL KIT – – I love BUNNYHILL, Bunnyhill patterns, I am currently also working on “A Vintage Christmas”, – did I mention I love Vintage too! But, I just had to do this Dresden plate quilt, so I looked in my stash and staring back at me – my Amy Butler fabric fat quarters! So here I go! Just made two dresdens and they are so great, almost have a vintage look! Thanks so much Anne.

ina - Go 49ers!!! Woot!! Woot!! NOW, I have time to sew today! I finished pressing all my blades on Friday so today I can sew them together. This has been a fun project, Anne, thank you so much. ;p

January 15, 2012 - 4:17 pm

Stephanie in Mi - I love everything in this post! The Dresden plates are awesome, and I am so excited they could do a kit. Your wool bundles are fantastic, and how thoughtful to tie them up with such a beautiful ribbon!

mimi'sdarlins - Anne, I’m drooling over all those gorgeous wool bundles in your store….the colors are so rich in these hand dyed wools! But today I’m enjoying my cottons and am about to start the applique for my first new Dresden block. What a fun group this is….and you’re so right about the inspiration, such amazing variety and talented quilters.

January 16, 2012 - 6:54 pm

Lynda - Such yummy colors!! Unfortunately I’m on self-imposed buying restriction right now. We had our house renovated last year and 2/3 of our belongings are still in boxes in the garage, including my sewing machine and extensive fabric stash. I’m consoling myself by knitting ONE project at a time. Oh, and like Ina, cheering on my 49ers!!!

January 17, 2012 - 6:11 pm

Heather - Now why can’t I reach into the computer and take out that nice little spring bundle!? I know it’d dieing to come home with me! :o)

Vicky - Those polka dots and oranges are fabulous!

Just a couple of more things to get today, a couple of cards to address, and then I’m done. And because of the wonderful gift bags, not much wrapping. I hate that part.

Merry Christmas, Anne. Can’t wait to see what exciting things will be heading our way in 2012 from Bunnyhill!

December 17, 2011 - 8:23 am

Lynda H - Orange is my fav color – absolutely love this selection of fabrics. This would be a fun project but just not in the budget. For now I just have to stick with the smaller things. You put out the best designs, what fun!

December 17, 2011 - 10:32 am

Juanita in Ohio - They truly look too good to eat, lol.

I have been wondering where to find the winner of the recipe and recipe contest, can you tell me where. I tried to back track but I’m not doing to well. Hopefully, I’m too early.

Have a wonderful weekend.

December 18, 2011 - 5:17 am

Sherry - Wonderful fabrics. Love the pumpkin pie quilt. Happy Holidays!

December 18, 2011 - 3:44 pm

Bev Eckert - I love this quilt, but just as Lynda H says, not in the budget. Do you not sell the pattern alone? That would be wonderful if you did!!! Bev E

mimi'sdarlins - These fabrics are such fun and so perfect for your pumpkin quilt! Love the beautiful shades of orange. Can’t believe I managed to bake all ten kinds of cookies last week, took me four solid days….Christmas cookies are so detailed! But always worth the work, and the kids were tickled to get their cookie canisters filled :)

sew~amy ( amy) - what a cute quilt. I just love it.
