Merry Christmas from my Christmas Cottage!


It's beginning to look like Christmas here...the decorating is going well...I'll be sharing some pictures this week! Have you navigated through Moda's website lately? It's a great place to go! I love looking at the upcoming fabrics ready for release as well as browsing the free patterns section! Recently I took some time to find out about their relatively new Fabricmatcher website. I have been wondering if the upcoming line "Patissiere" would coordinate with "Fig & Plum." "Fig & Plum" matches my bedroom set, and I've been thinking about making a quilt from it for my room...but I wanted even more fabrics to choose from. I saw "Patissiere," and wondered if it would work in the quilt as well, so I headed over to Moda to see if I could figure it out! I discovered by using the Fabricmatcher tool that the fabrics do coordinate, so now I'm anxiously awaiting the release of "Patissiere" to start making my quilt! While I was over at the Fabricmatcher site, I entered the November contest by designing a "Holiday Bliss" quilt. I had great fun...in fact, it was a lot of fun. The family patiently waited for me to design my quilt (because they wanted to use the computer)...and if it hadn't been Thanksgiving weekend when I discovered it...I might have designed a few more quilts while I was at it! Moda has a monthly contest as well...one I'd really like to win sometime...and December's is easy. Simply download the fabricmatcher banner to your blog, link it to the site, post about Fabricmatcher, and then let Moda know that you've entered. Easy, and you could win a basket of Moda goodness! So...click on the link on my side-bar and go see what the fun is all about!

That cottage is so amazingly cute! The roof is fabulous. I've seen the Moda fabric matcher but I haven't used it yet. Good idea.
