Something Moda


Happy Thursday! I meant to get this post up yesterday, but I was knee-deep in market sewing! You see, on Tuesday, these fantastic boxes arrived on my doorstep, and by Tuesday night I had six quilts ready to sew...



 It's Quilt Market time, and while I've been doing quilt market sewing for several years, this year it's different. I've been keeping a secret since last fall, and it's finally time to share (I'm not good at keeping secrets, so this is huge that I've been able to keep this under wraps).

Also, I'm filled with such gratitude for this opportunity, that I haven't been able to come up with just the right words to write a blog post about it...so I'm just going to (as they say) spill the beans.


  
You'll be seeing a bit more of my younger daughter Chelsi here on the blog because she and I are new Moda fabric designers. It's taken a couple decades, but all of her drawing on the walls as a toddler and young child has been a true blessing!




Anyway...this is all I can share now, but our first collection will debut at International Quilt Market in Minneapolis in just two weeks! Which leads me to my next announcement...




Tomorrow's post will be brought to you by my husband and my daughter Chelsi. I'm not sure what they're up to!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

How thrilling--but seriously, just the selvedges for us??!! You could have shared a glimpse!! I bet seeing the selvedge is every bit (or maybe MORE) exciting than the actual fabric. I can't wait to see what you've created as I really like you style.
