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 !

Leeanne - Looks fantastic, Lynne did a great job of the quilting.

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!

Wool, and Hover Mode : All About Applique - […] wool, I thought I’d give a link over to the Bunny Hill Blog. Anne just put up a post showing the most luscious wool. Go feast your […]

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)

January 17, 2012 - 8:32 pm

jacqueline - It’s always such pleasure visting you here. I am always inspired and i just love all your gorgeous photos. These wools are so yummie and i especially adore Sorbet Wool Bundle!! Have a lovely merry happy mid-week and love to you!

Please pass the Pumpkin Pie

We’ve spent the last few days making Pumpkin Pie kits here at Bunny Hill.  No calories in this pie even with all the yummy fabrics we’ve been cutting.   Here’s a picture of our pie slice… Doesn’t it look yummy? We’ve got stacks and stacks of Pumpkin Pie… …assembled and ready for baking! If you […]

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

December 18, 2011 - 4:20 pm

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 :)

December 23, 2011 - 3:02 pm

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

First week of December!

I started December off at our local hospital early on the morning of December 1st.  My husband had arthoscopic surgery on his shoulder because of a torn rotator cuff.  We had to arrive by 5:45AM. I had envisioned just “us” arriving at that time of the morning, but to my surprise there was a waiting […]

Mary on Lake Pulaski - Beautiful Redwork Anne!! I just got some of those pens this week too and they’re great!

December 3, 2011 - 3:29 pm

Jennifer Dancy - Just beautiful work! I am definitely (almost) ready to try some redwork – but I HAVE A QUESTION!!! How in the world do you tie-off so that you don’t see knots and/or ends? Your work looks pristine – and my previous attempts have left me very unsatisfied because I can’t seem to hide my knots and ends on the back! Any advice?

December 3, 2011 - 4:06 pm

BJ - My DH had shoulder surgery in August, so I know what you are going through. The ice therapy machine is fabulous! Our niece loaned hers to us and it has made a huge difference for him. He’s up to 3 pounds on his right arm now — he had a torn muscle and crushed collar bone, so a bit different surgery from your DH.

Love the redwork teasers. Another winner you have created!

December 3, 2011 - 4:10 pm

Nancy C. in Utah - Hi Anne! I so glad to hear your husband is doing so well. We have the surgical patient tracking system in our hospital waiting rooms also. My hubby has been very grateful for it during the two surgeries I had earlier this year. It is indeed amazing. The other amazing thing is just as you said, you arrive so early in the morning to a completely full waiting room…we tend to forget that lots of other surgeries are going on besides ours, LOL. Your Redwork Raining Cats and Dogs is so gorgeous. I love applique but it is not very easy for me to cut small pieces with scissors…so when I see a quilt I love done in stitchery, I turning cartwheels!!! Well, in my heart I am, LOL. The spirit is willing and all that, *wink*. Thanks for sharing the peeks with us. I will be keeping your hubby in my thoughts and prayers for continued speedy recovery. Big Hugs…

December 3, 2011 - 6:37 pm

Susan - Hope the surgery went ok, beautiful red work.

December 3, 2011 - 7:50 pm

Rhonda D in southeast Missouri - Sorry about your husband, hope he is on the road to mending soon. I just love your redwork.
Where can I get this pattern? Is the Redwork version different from the BOM Raining Cats & Dogs?

December 3, 2011 - 8:19 pm

Mary T. Salmon - Hi Anne!
I am so glad the surgery went fine for your husband. I wish him a speedy recovery.
Your red sneak peak is adorable…My goodness! Your stitches are so beautiful.
Thanks for sharing.

December 4, 2011 - 8:03 am

Jean - I’m glad hubs is doing fine. It sounds like he was at the same “type” of facility that my mom had her recent surgery at. Love the color coded board. Very efficient and the staff where we were at are wonderful.

I love the new quilt and don’t think I didn’t see the Scottie in there! The fabrics are adorable – especially the cherries.

Have a great week!

December 4, 2011 - 9:12 am

Mary - I hope your husband continues to heal quickly. It’s amazing to me that he’s working again after three days!

Your stitches are just perfect – do you use a backstitch? I think the new quilt will be wonderful. I love redwork!

December 4, 2011 - 9:20 am

Barb - I’m so happy to read that your hubby did so well iwith his surgery and that recovery is going well, too. (Maybe the In and Out Burger made all the difference!! ha!ha!) What a trooper to be back to work so soon! Pass on the good word to him that we are all rooting for him!

As for your redwork – it is too wonderful!! Red is my absolute favorite color, so I am immediately drawn to this and to that gorgeous fabric. Please don’t keep us in suspense too long – I reallly, really WANT this!!

December 4, 2011 - 11:05 am

Clara Chandler - Here’s to a speedy recovery for your husband, Anne.

My husband is involved in a lengthy process for his health and your patterns help me pass the time watching him rest between treatments. The quilt blocks are so portable–I cut the pieces for each block and place in a small box to add to my sewing bag. Then, I stitch away. I’m working on Snowbound BOM.

Love the red colors and designs in the fabric you chose.

Thank you for all you do to make the world a gentler place!

December 4, 2011 - 12:27 pm

ina - Anne, I’m sure it was the In and Out burger that made all difference in the world! ;0 Glad he is moving around already. PT won’t be fun but it will help him regain his range of motion.

I LOVE the pattern in redwork! :)

December 4, 2011 - 3:02 pm

Charity - Hi Anne,
I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your redwork. It’s always stunning. I have set of those pens, I’m hoping to get to use them after finals in two weeks. I just have one suggestion, I think the cat with umbrella needs whiskers. Of course this is just my thinking. It sounds as if your husband is healing well, and just in time for the holidays. Sending the very best wishes.

December 4, 2011 - 4:03 pm

Paty Z - Hello Anne!
Hope your husband is feeling better. I just joined the block of the month quilt for the snowmen quilt, its´s beautiful!!! I´ll have lots to do for next year. This redwork is great. Congratulations!!

December 5, 2011 - 8:46 am

Mary - Just found your blog in the Christmas blog hop. Hope to be a winner.

December 5, 2011 - 12:07 pm

Vickie Van Dyken - Love Love Love the sneak peek of raining cats and dogs! Looks like a winner to me :-) Prayers and best wishes for both you and hubby. Although it sounds like he has a little bit of John Galt in his spirit!

December 5, 2011 - 9:06 pm

Jenny Schmidt - Glad to hear your husband is feeling better already! What beautiful fabrics!

December 5, 2011 - 10:12 pm

Lynda - What gorgeous fabrics!! And as always, your designs are utterly charming. That’s terrific your sweetie is healing, and the hospital tracking system is really something. What I’d like to know is, can it be applied to husbands who aren’t having surgery – you know, when they’re in hardware stores, grocery stores, that kind of thing… :)

December 6, 2011 - 9:58 am

LoriD - What a wonderful adorable quilt!! Love the red and white.

I hope your hubby is feelgin better soon. I’ve been having rotator problems too:(

December 6, 2011 - 2:44 pm

mimi'sdarlins - Anne, I’m glad to hear your husband’s surgery went so well and that he’s so quickly on the mend. I love your “Raining…” pattern in redwork, and it just couldn’t be sweeter using Moda’s new line. I’m so busy w/ all the holiday stuff, I’ve gotten behind in my blogs! Have a lovely holiday season….hugs :)

December 7, 2011 - 11:25 am

Joyatee - Your embroidery is gorgeous!

December 16, 2011 - 9:02 am

sharon - Anne, I love the new redwork quilt. When can we order the pattern? I know my customers are going to love it as well.
Merry Christmas

February 13, 2012 - 10:24 pm

Margie - I have nursed my husband thru 4 different surgries,but when the whinning starts I am done.
I love all your embrodry patters and block of the month. thanks for your generosity.

May 6, 2012 - 4:44 pm

Louise Hill - I love visiting your site. It is my sewing fix for the day! Thank you for all the fun ideas that you share. I also enjoy redwork and think the Raining quilt is gorgeous and look forward to someday being able to do that one. I like anything that is done in red and white. I am currently getting used to a new knee replacement. I can feel for your husband and his shoulder. Glad to hear giot through it so well.
