Confetti Swatches!

The new Confetti fabric swatches are on the website NOW!

Just click on the “fabrics for moda” page to see all the new lovelies and ask for them at your favorite local Quilt Store!

They ship this coming January 2018.

We have new patterns too …

This quilt is super easy to make with a Jellyroll.

And a “re new” of an old favorite!

Because you asked for it we brought it back!

Happy Quilting!

National Sew A Jelly Roll Day!

This past Saturday we celebrated the first National Sew a Jelly Roll Day!

I decided to get some Quilting friends together and put them to work making Jellyroll quilts for charity.

We rent a room at our local public library and sew there every month.
I provided some refreshments and the ladies each brought something to share.
No Jellyroll event would be complete without Jelly Donuts and Jelly Beans!

Moda fabrics kindly donated 14 jelly rolls.

I didn’t snap a picture of my display fast enough and those rolls disappeared faster that the donuts!

We had so much fun sewing …

And chatting …

But also getting the job done!

Some got very creative!

Some quilt tops were finished …

And others will be finished at home and brought back next month when we each decide where our quilts are being donated.

We had a great time and I can’t wait to see all the completed quilts!

I wonder what we can come up with for next year!

Happy Quilting!

Pillow Love!

Remember the beautiful pillow that Sharon from Patches Indooroopilly in Australia made for us last year?

Well, she found out that I wasn’t sharing and was worried about Mary not having a pillow so she did this!

She made another beautiful pillow but this time it’s for Mary.
It’s made using our new Frolic fabrics that will be shipping to shops later this month.

I absolutely love the purple accent piping.
And lets not forget the cute zipper in the back!

Sharon knows how to make a pillow … it’s perfect and adorable!

Thanks for another beautiful pillow Sharon. It’s loved and this one IS going to Mary! (wink wink)

Happy Quilting!

Clothespin Cute!

Have you seen these bags of pure cuteness?

IMG_0015

They’re full of these …

IMG_0019

Yes, clothespins with our Red Dot Green Dash fabrics printed on the outside!

I have a great plan for using them this year to hang my Christmas cards!

IMG_0023

Or maybe to hang my everyday notes, or maybe to use to attach gift tags to packages or maybe to use to plug my nose in a smelly bathroom!

The possibilities are endless.

Look for them at your local Quilt Shop today!

Merry Quilting!

We couldn’t have done it without YOU!
Hugs!

Dovetail ~ Sew Along!

Join me and the Fat Quarter Shop in this fun sew along!
I’ve made the cutest quilt in just one weekend!

IMG_0036

When I got the invitation to join in on the fun with the Fat Quarter Shop I couldn’t resist. Especially when I found that my friend Doug Leko of Antler Quilt Designs designed the quilt.

I wanted to use our new Frolic fabrics to make my quilt. I know the one Doug designed uses Jolly Bars, but since our “Frolic” fabrics won’t be released until September, I was forced to use my private top secret designer stash.

IMG_0012

I happened to have a few layer cakes so made my own Jolly Bars!
I’m all cut and ready to sew.

IMG_0016

It was also the perfect opportunity to try out Doug’s new Simple Folded Corners Ruler.

IMG_0021

It makes things so much easier and super fast! I can tell I’ll be using this ruler for other projects too!

IMG_0027

I’m SO serious when I say that this quilt is so easy to make. I love easy that doesn’t look easy.

IMG_0038

I’ll be using this cute pattern again! Get yours and your favorite Jolly Bars at the Fat Quarter Shop!

Sew Sampler Box!

It’s H-E-R-E!
I can hardly wait to get into this newest box …

IMG_0003

And once again I LOVE it.

I always manage to find something fresh and something that I’ve always wanted but have never taken the time to get it for myself.

IMG_0007

This month it just happens to be the pin bowl.

Everything coordinates and I’m never disappointed!
Thanks Sew Sampler Box and enjoy your first year anniversary!
Barb
