Kim & Kris Interview Anna Maria Horner at Quilt Market – Free Pattern

May 24th, 2011

Welcome to a new episode of The DIY Dish! As you may know, we recently returned from an inspiring trip to The International Quilt Market. One of the highlights was the opportunity we had to visit with Anna Maria Horner. We have been a fan of hers for years, so it definitely was a treat. Take a look at the stunning fabrics and patterns she has designed! Plus, she’s offering you a free pattern that we think you’ll love!

We have a feeling you’re going to especially love her new Loulouthi fabric line! It is simply gorgeous, isn’t it?!

Not only can you use them for quilts, home decor, and clothing, but the Loulouthi line also comes in one of our newest favorite items — laminated cotton!

Anna also has a new line of needlework patterns and embroidery floss. AND….she’s giving away a set to two of you!

This giveaway is open to a world-wide audience, ages 18 and over. Void where prohibited. The last day to enter is THIS FRIDAY, May 27, 2011.

There are 2 ways to enter:

1. Simply leave a comment here on the blog.  Easy!
2. Visit Anna’s website and let us know something that caught your eye! (Her site is full of beatiful things!)  P.S. You’ll LOVE her blog! 😉

Don’t forget to download your free pattern! We’d love to see what you make with it! Be sure to post your photos on our Facebook or Flickr pages!

Have a wonderful week!
-Kim & Kris

  • May 24, 2011 at 5:51 am

    I would love to win the kit. The colors are so beautiful! I like to do tatted flowers and make them into stationery, and the pearl cotton would be ideal for that.

  • Ginger W
    May 24, 2011 at 7:26 am

    OMG!! What didn’t catch my eye…. I loved the selection of fabrics, both prints and cooridinating solids in the Fabric Stacks. Not to mention the palette for the embroidery flosses… Anna Maria is so very talented and creative.. I am definately going to try out the embroidery pattern that you provided for us. It is such a beautiful pattern and would make a great accent on anything that you apply it too. I loved the video as well, and as usual you did a fantastic job.

    Thanks again,

    I visited Anna Maria’s website, and I thought the cute little flannel birds were just darling! (I also noticed in the video you did at Quilt Market that her knees and legs had identical bruises! Understandable, since she probably spends a lot of time playing on the floor with the baby!) :-) Thanks for the video, and the chance to win!

    Thank you Anna Marie for sharing your beautiful work with Kim and kris to be on the “Dish”. The colors are so vibrant and lovely! I love the package of perl cotton that goes with your fabrics and I have a question. I’ve always used DMC floss and I’m wondering why you chose Anchor floss? Is it because of the color selection, or is Anchor especially good to work with?

  • MaryEllen

  • Melonie
    May 24, 2011 at 5:50 pm

    Love the rich colors and patterns in her fabric. I am intrigued with the laminated cotton…especially that it is much softer and pliable than what I’ve seen used for furniture upholstery fabric. I think it would be wonderful for children’s bibs, diaper bags, makeup bags, etc.

  • christa bradford
    May 24, 2011 at 5:56 pm

    What is now called “hand embroidery” used to be “Crewel work”. I am excited to see it come back in an updated style.

  • barbara johnson
    May 24, 2011 at 6:01 pm

  • May 24, 2011 at 7:46 pm

    Anna Maria Horner is truly the reason I finially began to sew. I had a machine for 3 years, never used it once, saw her Good Folks line, ordered it, and the rest is history!!!

  • May 24, 2011 at 7:48 pm

    What a great inspiration and so talented. Her fabrics are truly wonderful. Congratulations Anna

  • May 24, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    Loved to see this video: as much I as *know* AMH is from the US, somehow when I read her voice I never hear the accent (I’m from Scotland) so it is surreal but lovely to see her speak in person. Great little interview!

    My favourite thing about her blog: any passage about the amazing team spirit her family have. They all seem to work together on everything, share love and hobbies and passions. I don’t have my own family yet but I sincerely hope we shall be as cohesive (and as hip!) as the AMH’s family are.

  • May 24, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    Thanks for sharing this great interview–love the large scale floral print in Loulouthi!

    Gak! There I was being all good and resisting the temptation to order yet MORE AMH fabric to my already extensive collection – but the embroidery package and the pillow (and moreso the POSSIBILITIES) – not to mention the forthcoming x-stitch” fabrics – well, I just fell off the wagon. Sign me up. Resistance is futile. But now… how will I ever sleep with all the IDEAS starting to bubble up from that interview?

  • Dawn Tieman
    May 25, 2011 at 1:18 am

    I go to anna maria horner’s website all the time, just to get inspired. But, what caught my eye on her newest post is the the embroidered pillow (I just bought that fabric) and the little blue flowers in the embroidery hoop. I’m really excited to try those out. :) I have to throw this in, I also love the empire evening dress pattern (the one with the big zigs) and obviously all her little folks voiles – rocking awesome fabric!

    The free styled quilted pillow caught my eye!

    In fact it all really did and does every time I look at her fabric, patterns, and quality in her work one of my very FAVORITE things about that fantastic woman is THE TEXTURE you can almost feel in her fabrics. She involves so much color and texture in her designs and coming from a gal who LOVES texture…let’s just say I go nuts when I see her stuff!
    Absolutely nuts!!!

    I especially LOVE the pillow I mentioned above because of the dimension the hand quilting adds to the fabric. Which she showed some closer up pics on her blog. And the fact that the hand embroidery matches the design. It follows the shapes and flowers and that is too awesome-I love it!

    I would LOVE if I could get my hands on some of these goodies!! It is crazy I have never hand embroidered yet…but have done every other crafty thing it feels. I can’t wait to try my hands at it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks so much Kim and Kris for all you do-I love to visit your blog and see all the wonderful inspiration that is to be found here:)

    Hugs! :);)

    I LOVE Anna Maria! Although when I saw her video I was positive that was one of her daughters, not her, doing the instructing! Oh, if only I looked so young! But I LOVE her fabrics, especially the Loulouthi collection. They are beautiful and inspiring just themselves. I want to make a dress or top and skirt from Clippings in Passion and Summer Totem in Grapefruit with some Curated Bloom in Patina thrown in for good measure. I simply love this new collection and wish there was some velveteen in here like the Innocent Crush collection has!
    And now she has embroidery cottons. I am SO tempted. But not talented. But now I might have to try. Thank you Anna Maria, for inspiring us. :-)

    What caught my eye on her site? You’re kidding, right? Everything! I have been drooling over both of her sewing books hoping to sew and create as she does. I also love her Folk Dance Quilt design…if only quilting didn’t scare the bejeebers out of me…

  • May 26, 2011 at 4:10 am

    I love the scale difference between the quilting cottons and voiles. And as a florist I can’t go past the all those giant garden roses and te colour.

  • mamajen
    May 26, 2011 at 5:13 am

    I love AMH’s style. Everything she designs is gorgeous. I have been drooling over that flower on her blog for weeks. I’m so excited that she is sharing the pattern. Thanks so much!!! Can’t wait for Loulouthi to come out. She got me hooked on Voile with the Little Folks line, so I’m looking forward to more!

    I found your website and am excited about visiting more often. I have been a fan of anna Maria’s for ahile now. When my husband sees her site on the screen he says “Stop tempting my wife!” It doesn’t work. I really like the Loulouthi pillow with the white background and can imagine it in my little girl’s room, and I could certainly play around with some of the new floss in quilting for my soon to arive baby girl.

    Thanks for the interview, I look forward to visiting more,

    Although I love all of her fabrics and designs on her webpage, the thing I love (and covet) most is her attic studio. Speaking as one who as to bring out the machine everytime she wants to sew on the kitchen table, I am amazingly jealous of that space.

    Loved the variety of patterns and kits on her web site, especially the pillows. Can’t wait for her new line to come out – have been searching for fabric with brown, turquoisey blue and new raspberry all incorporated in urban design. They look great!

    I’ve been loving the banner on Anna Maria’s blog for the past couple of weeks, so you can imagine how excited I am to see that there is a pattern for embroidering a charming little flower of my own!

  • May 26, 2011 at 9:14 pm

    Thanks DIY Dish!!! I love reading Anna’s blog,, it is great! :)

    I love Anna Marie’s new fabric. Cant wait to find it in retail stores, it has so many possibilities.

  • May 26, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    Just found this (very fun!) interview through Rachel’s Stitched in Color blog, and I’m so delighted! I’ll be adding you to my google reader and waiting impatiently for some of your new friend Anna’s 😉 printed cross stitch fabric to surface!

    I wish I had better access to Anna’s stuff. Up in Canada, it’s a lot harder to find, and shipping from elsewhere can be quite costly. I would love the new embroidery kits, I’ve been slowly teaching my girls how to embroider and stitch for the past few years. My fav. thing on her website is the “free” section…how can you not love that??

  • May 27, 2011 at 1:31 am

    I have been a fan of Anna for so long. Her figure 8 scarf in Innocent Crush Voile is on my mind right now.

    I LOVED the interview and love knowing that Anna Maria Horner is teaming up with Janome. I think she is truly an inspirational person. I love how she continues to provide wonderful fabric and patterns that are fun for all to make. She has done great things for the sewistas in this world!

  • Faye Miskin

    Her colors outshine the normal embroidery colors – so alive – love it

  • May 27, 2011 at 2:20 am

    I have been a huge fan of hers for years. I always love the quilts she does and she has me inspired to try hand embroidery…and now she makes it easy!

  • Melinda
    May 27, 2011 at 2:42 am

    I actually just came from Anna’s blog to watch this video. I think my favorite thing about AMH is the COLOR! She has amazing color combinations that I would have never thought of! And I’m pretty sure the embroidered flower that is currently the banner for her blog (that I have admired for a while now) also comes from the new free pattern!

  • May 27, 2011 at 3:09 am

    I just love the colors of that embroidery floss! I just got information to sign up at a local fabric shop for an embroidery class. What great timing!

  • Leesa

    I like the Make section of the AMH website. There is a tutorial there on hand stitching that caught my eye. I also like her pattern for the multi-tasker tote.

    I’ve read her blog for a while…what I like? How she writes. The style of it. I love the interesting way she chooses to be a quilter…novel things to do with her and others fabrics all the time.

  • May 27, 2011 at 6:57 am

    I wish I could go to Quilt Market! I love Anna’s patterns and pattern kits! She has such a great eye for color!

    Thanks for sharing your interview with Anna. What I loved about her website is first of all the home page. Very unique! Anna also has some wonderful patterns that are very unique like the dress and skirt patterns. It’s great to see the talent out there, so thanks Kris and Kim for getting out there and sharing the information with us!

    I am absolutely smitten with this new line! And that Anna Maria is encouraging embroidery with all the swirls and flowers is so cool. I do lots and lots of needlepoint and am excited to change up to a different handwork for a while.

  • Pat
    May 27, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    I love the new fabrics. I like the fact that some of the new fabrics are more contempary so I can make a more modern quilt instead of the traditional ones that my Mom used to make.

  • May 27, 2011 at 4:38 pm

    I’m loving all the action & color in these new prints. They are so easily mixed in with the plain janes I usually go for~very exciting to see so many variations of fabric in the new line, too!

  • maria elena blecha

    I have always been a fan of super bright and pattern mixing much to my mothers dismay. “Never put pink and red together, blue and green don’t match; don’t mix plaids and stripes,” I was always told. I love to see stuff like Anna Maria Horners, Thanks for a great interview.

  • Jocelyn
    May 27, 2011 at 8:54 pm

    Anna Maria never disappoints, her new line of fabric and needlework goods is to die for!! She is everyone’s fave designer for a reason :) Can’t wait to get my hands on all that new stuff, it is gorgeous!!

  • May 28, 2011 at 1:05 am

    I love all of Anna’s fabrics and patterns. I’ve done several projects with her drawing room line and I love the quality and richness of her fabric and designs. I didn’t know she was greek! Maybe that is why I’m drawn to her fabric! I check her site frequently and can’t wait for her new Loulouthi line!

    Anna Maria is an inspiration to me. I started following her blog when she had the chocolate lollipop line out. I am excited about her new line of embroidery and her new relationship with Janome. I have a Janome that has been unused for about 2 years because of sad things going on in my life. I am hoping to get some of Anna Maria’s new fabric and start using my sewing machine again.

    I love Anna Maria Horner, she’s one of the first blogs I found and started reading and reunited my passion for making (and finishing). I usually find myself staring longingly at the fabric bundles in her shop, so I’ll pick the Innocent Crush voile in the Train Case Packed stack for what caught my eye today.

    While I was watching this interview with my daughters, I LOVED the beautiful pillows!!!!
    Each one is an art. We were thinking of all the possibilities to refresh our old sofa’s look by sewing a few new pillow. It gave us an inspiration and this is a fact. :)

    Thank you all and happy stitching!

    I am a hand embroidery maniac, and I have even taught classes. I love the first page of Anna Maria Horner’s website where she shows one of her fabrics that focuses on a beautiful butterfly and then mirrors that half with an exact replica in embroidery. It is so beautiful, and I think it would make a REALLY quick and fantastic Christmas present when framed in an inexpensive frame possibly even ready to finish painted in one of her fabulous signature colors.
