I have some of my favorite fabrics on my studio shelves now.  They are calling my name, waiting for samples to be made.  It’s Lily & Will Revisited in pink, gray and Bunny Hill Blue.

Pretty in pink,

Beautiful in blue,

Elegant in gray,

Put them all together and it’s a Lily & Will Revisited Bundle!   

I feel like I should order bolts for my own personal stash building, because this fabric won’t come again.  What if I decide several years from now, I need to make curtains from this beautiful gray Cottontail Toile?

Or, maybe a duvet cover from this Cottontail Toile?

And a dust ruffle from this beautiful stripe?  Did I tell you this stripe is was inspired by a 1860’s vintage wallpaper?  Imagine how regal this looked in a Victorian home.

And, of course we can’t forget baby!  I designed this line for a sophisticated baby look!  Here’s a sample of our first printing of this fabric in aqua and brown.  Now, just use you imagination to see it in blue and gray.

Or change this pink and brown to pink and gray!

Lily & Will Revisited comes in flannel too!  Imagine what you can make…

 I’ll be showing you much more in the next few blog posts.  We’ll have kits, free patterns, and so many cute things!  If you want your local quilt shop to carry this fabric, be sure and tell them now!  Lily & Will is Revisiting for the last time.  Shipping to quilt stores in May.

Back soon to tell you about Twinkle Toes.


Writing about the Merci La Vie quilt gives me an overwhelming feeling of emotion.  Each time I think of the special ladies who worked on this quilt I realize what a special place in my heart they each hold.  As I prepare to leave for Quilt Market this year, I’m reminded that I’ll be seeing some of them very soon.  I want to scoop them up into a huge group hug!   If you don’t remember hearing about this Merci La Vie quilt, you can read about it on my blog here.

This special quilt is currently at the American Cancer Society getting ready for a high society event!  It will be attending  The American Cancer Society’s Jewel Ball, on November 19th because I’ve donated it for their auction!   To each of you who gave your precious time and skills to the making of this quilt I say THANK YOU!  I hope to see some of you next week at quilt market.

I hope you enjoy some of the closeups of these quilt blocks!

How to Make a Ruffled Table Runner

I’m celebrating the month of May and all that it brings to each of us, with a new free pattern from Bunny Hill!  I’ll show you how easy it is to make a reversible table runner with a beautiful ruffle on each end.  Simplicity is what I’ve named the pattern because it really is simplicity at its best.  Just think of all the fabrics you can use to make this, season after season!  I’ve used Brenda Riddle’s gorgeous floral and check linen and I love the way it turned out.

With floral linen on one side, and a check linen on the other, I’ll have both a formal look and a more casual look when I need it.  Because the linen is a bit heavier than cotton, I used a pearl cotton to gather the ruffle.  My free pattern includes directions for gathering with pearl cotton, or a heavy-duty thread.  Just click on the link below for the free pattern!

Of course I’ve made up some table runner kits using Brenda’s linen.  I couldn’t resist!  You’ll find them on our website!

I’ll be back on Sunday to share my Splendid Sampler block with you!  Hope you’ll join me!
