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

Tuesday, 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
