luv u mom / ann kelle

Every week I share things I’m thankful for in a column called “Hello, Friday.” Whether it’s a list, a story or a picture, always at the heart of it is thankfulness.

Happy, happy Mother’s Day to all of you mamas. I hope your day is full of love, sunshine and giggles!  Here are some things I’m thankful for this week.

- God can make something good out of a bad situation. I’ve seen it been done so many times.

- the outpouring of love for others in need

- sunny days

- my Mama. She’s the best x a million.

- growth

- a good breakfast

- the smell of flowers

ferris wheel / ann kelle

Every week I share things I’m thankful for in a column called “Hello, Friday.” Whether it’s a list, a story or a picture, always at the heart of it is thankfulness.

This week was a roller coaster of a week. Full of highs and lows. Some weeks are like that. I hope you are good, safe and happy.  Amongst all that was going on this week, here are some things I’m thankful for:

- celebrating with my Mama on her birthday. She’s such a good Mom.

- safety while traveling in the storm.  

- Someone overheard me talking to my Aunt Margaret. When I got on the elevator to leave, she said “A good friend is hard to find.”  I  smiled and told her she was actually my aunt. She replied “well, you’ve got two in one.”  She’s right and those are a blessing.

- bear hugs

- answered prayers . . . over and over again

- God’s assurance

“I HEART you” in quiltmaker’s 100 blocks

May 01, 2014

100 Block Quiltmaker / ann kelle

I’m so tickled to have a quilt block I designed featured in the Summer 2014 issue of Quiltmaker’s 100 Block magazine. The quilt  features my Remix prints and Kona solids. After I designed the block, Teresa Coates was a HUGE help in making it a reality. As always, picking out all the prints and colors was so fun!  I think it turned out very cheery! The Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Blog Tour (running April 28th – May 2nd) has some great inspirations and giveaways! Leave a comment here to win a copy of the magazine, as well as a fat eighths bundle of Remix prints + Kona solids! Entries must be posted by Monday, May 5th at midnight. UPDATE: The giveaway is now closed. Thank you for all your sweet comments! Congratulations to the random winner, Lee!

new “this and that”

April 28, 2014

this and that / ann kelle

Super-duper excited to share these new prints with you today! We’re adding three new prints to my collection, This and That. This growing collection is full of my favorite things. Sunglasses, nail polish, and flip flops are all fun staples in my life. I wear sunglasses regularly, and flip flops everyday. Oh, and my affection for nail polish started at a young age. Although these prints are part of my daily life, they scream summer to me! Like a good day of relaxing under the sun with a freshly done mani or pedi.

new cake fabric

April 21, 2014

confections / ann kelle

I have a confession, I draw sweets because I can’t eat sweets all the time. I would LOVE to eat cake for breakfast, everyday-all day, but sadly I can’t. So, one day I sat down and drew cakes. All sorts of cakes. Cakes with chocolate. Cakes with strawberries. Cakes with sprinkles. You get the point. Lots of cakes. This new print is part of the Confections collection and ships to stores this month. And now I want to eat cake.

quilt trends / ann kelle

I was pretty excited when I saw the pictures of my Urban Flotologie prints in the Spring Issue of Quilt Trends.  I knew it was coming, but I had no idea it would be this awesome!  So bright and cheery!  Sarah Price made this cuddly quilt, which is both quick and easy. She used my Urban Flotologie and Remix flannel prints in the quilt. To get a copy of the magazine for the quilt instructions, head here or here. The Fat Quarter Shop has also put together a kit for the quilt, which you can purchase here.

- a day full of sunshine

- after a screening and emergency surgery, a friend’s test results coming back normal

fabric sighting: coin purse

April 09, 2014

telephone coin purse / ann kelle

I went out of town a couple of weeks ago and left behind several of my little pouches and bags. The upside to this, is that it gives me an excuse to get brand spankin’ new bags, like this cutie coin purse by Hot4HandBags. This coin purse features my telephones. See more cute goods here.

(p.s. Every time I see this my telephone print, I can’t help but sing Mr. Telephone Man)
