Quilt all day dinner plan!
Meet Celine Perkins ... today's featured Minnesota blogger!

Anka's Treasures is the blogger of the day on the blog hop!


When I look at Heather Mulder Peterson, I find it hard to believe that she's been designing quilting patterns and fabrics for just about a million years! Heather began her quilting career while she was in college ... publishing patterns and machine quilting ... and going to school at the same time ... very ambitious! Her company name is a tribute to her grandmother, Anka.

Heather is one of four designers who make up the Minnesota Road Show. This teaching trunk show is ongoing in different quilt shops across the country each month. The other design companies involved are Atkinson Designs, Brandwine Designs and Maple Island Quilts. The stores who are taking part have been using the Road Show to teach the techniques of these very different designers ... they are doing demonstration days or classes or all day sessions so they can share the talents of these great Minnesota designers! Check with your local store to see if they've scheduled the Road Show.

Now ... get over to Heather's blog for today's blog hop. Heather has a small wallhanging that is perfect to make on a Summer day. Don't forget to comment to get included in the fantastic prizes at the end of the hop!!

Love the hints for wool felt applique. Becky


I love doing felt work, however I never used real wool! Thank you I can't wait to try it! I would be so happy to win one of your strawberry pin cushions!


Thanks for the tips with wool. You make it look so easy.

Linda in AZ

Thanks for the tutorial. It looks like fun to do.

Karen Rosewarne

Thanks for the tutorial, you make it sound easy. We have a great shop in Tasmania call the Quilted Crow that has beautiful wool, which I'd love to use. I love 3D applique look so will give this a try. Regards Karen from Australia

Sandy Roe

I love wool too although I've not worked with it as much as I would like to - thanks for the tips and ideas. Also, thanks for the great recipe - it sounds tasty and appears to be a time saver - like we all need.


the pictures are great--and make me want to get out the wool and thread right this minute--except there is that dusting.....hmmmmm
thanks for being a part of the blog hop!

Sue Bennett

I just love wool applique. It is a great take along project and you items are great.

Mary in MN

Thank you for this blog hop!

Susan M.

Wow what perfect timing. I just received lots and lots of wool felt from a fellow quilter on the HGTV Quilting and Needlework message board. I can use all the tips that abound using items made out of wool felt. I especially want to learn to make adorable pincushions. I am having a pincushion fetish at the moment....lol... Looking forward to the next pincushion swap on the message board.

I am going to enjoy browsing your blog. Thanks ever so much for doing the Minnesota blog hop and letting us participate.
