Top Secret!

But not anymore!
Mary and I have been working on a new between market fabric group over the past few months. It’s kind of different for us and we are hoping that you will like it as much as we do …

It’s an all black, white, and gray group called “Shades of Black”! We have been bugging our boss for about 3 years now to do this group. She finally gave in … probably just to shut us up!

The boxes have just started arriving!

The Moda salespersons should be showing the collection to your favorite quilt shop very soon. Make sure to tell them to order lots!

In addition to the fabrics, they will also be showing a quilt kit for this …

It’s called L7. Sounds like a spy name doesn’t it?

We were so excited about this collection arriving in the warehouse that we had our “secret Moda spy” snap some pictures of the first bolt rolled …

Her undercover work has paid of well with these never before seen “rolling the bolt shots” by specially trained operatives …

Oh no! I think she’s been spotted!

Better run for it …

Luckily she got out of the warehouse safely to spy for us another day.

Look for the Moda salespersons soon and ask for “Shades of Black” wherever you shop. We might have to support our spy entering the witness protection program!
