I love Moda Bella solids…Moda Bella Bleached White 9900-97 is my “go to” background…I buy it by the bolt, and let me tell you, I start getting a little nervous when it starts to get low!
I also love Moda Bella Snow for all of my Fig Tree sewing…it works with every collection Joanna has designed! But there are a lot more colors than just white and snow…
I just had to order some of the new Warm and Bright fat quarters the other day (just doing my part to support business…plus I had a coupon code that saved me 25% from Fat Quarter Shop)!
And…I wrote a guest post today on Moda’s The Cutting Table blog…I’m sharing one of my favorite Moda Bella tips over there today.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

That is a really great idea. I have a few solids and I don't know whether they are from kona or riley blake or whatever. So that is a genius idea to keep them straight. Plus whites and creams are a huge problem because they seem to add up and I sometimes choose ones from different places and different brands so I hate to mix because the shade is slightly different and I would hate for that to be the thing that shows up. Thank you for the tip.
Thank you for this post! I live in a rural area and order 95% of my fabric online, I'm always guessing 1)which shade to pick and then 2)which one is this? later.

By the bolt is a great idea. I love having a stock of white/snow/background fabrics… for endless playing possibilities! I'm going to go read your guest post now…

I can't imagin buying by the bolt…BUT…How much fun! I wish I could!! I have just re folded and re organized the fabric I have…and just love looking at those colors! Putting them in certain order and new ideas for putting colors together. I almost enjoy "playing" with the fabric than using…ALMOST!!
I love your idea…that Bella white is my favorite also…I need to get some snow and I'll sure be using your marking tip…It's so easy to get them confused.

Wonderful tip. I never know what number I would need to order if I ran out.
How do we buy by the bolt? It's my go to white as well, and this makes much more sense to me.
I love those bolts of Moda Bella solids! I want one in every color LOL!
And P.S. — I'd read that Moda post and didn't even realize it was you — LOL. Great post!

I love Kona like that. I want a bolt of white. I should have thought to ask for it for Christmas!
