Pretty in Pink

Last summer when I visited a Quilt shop in Georgia, I fell in love with this quilt.

The owner was out of the pattern but told me it was called Dolly Madison. She tried to find it online for me, but was not able to find it.

Low and behold I discovered that this soft and dreamy pattern was Dolley's Garden by Bunny Hill Designs. I have always admired Anne Sutton's beautiful patterns, but as I don't do applique I've not used many of her patterns.

A couple of years ago I signed up for Anne's newsletter when she offered A Tisket A Tasket as a free download. So when the email arrived letting me know there was a sale going on at Bunny Hill, I went looking for the pattern.

And YES I also bought Park Lane ;-) I mean come on, it was on sale!

And then there was the beautiful Lily & Will. Just had to have a little taste of this delicious fabric.

And when the patterns arrived, I discovered that Park Lane is made with ONE Charm pack of Lily & Will. Woo-hoo!!! This is going to be fun!

I love Bunny Hill Designs, I did that basket one as well (never finished it) but it was a great learning experience.

I love reading your blog, even though I can't call myself a quilter. But, I have quilted a few small pillow tops and mini-quilts for display. Do you piece by hand? Or do you use a sewing machine? The way I learned, so many years ago, was by hand. Most of the directions today call for the sewing machine.
