Hello friends and happy March! Today I’m sharing a new feature, my first Moda Mix & Match along with the February 2023 Fat Quarter Shop Sew Sampler Box. Keep reading for all of the details on the new feature along with the video that goes along with today’s post.
Moda Mix & Match + February Sew Sampler Box
I have been thinking about doing my Moda Mix & Match feature for a little while now. My idea is to share how different Moda collections that are available at the same time in stores can be used together to create a scrappier feeling or a well-coordinated look in a quilt or project. You can watch today’s Sew Sampler Box video to see exactly how today’s Moda Mix & Match collections work together. And keep reading for more details on the Mix and Match feature.
Watch the Sew Sampler February 2023 unboxing above or go here to watch it on our YouTube channel. Along with the video I share all of the details on the Moda Mix & Match with Simply Delightful by Sherri & Chelsi and Sunwashed by Corey Yoder.

Moda Mix & Match: Simply Delightful + Sunwashed
Several years ago, Corey Yoder and I created projects using her Canning Day collection mixed with our Summer Sweet group. (See my quilt using these two collections here). I can hardly wait to mix our collections that are in stores now: Simply Delightful and Sunwashed. A quick view of the prints above shows that there are some definite similarities in these two groups. In today’s video I compare the actual fabrics from the collections so you can see the exact beautiful mix and match opportunities. The Moda Mix & Match segment is in the second half of the video.
Thanks so much for stopping by for today’s Moda Mix & Match + February 2023 Sew Sampler unboxing. And finally, be sure to stop by on Friday to see a brand-new Sherri & Chelsi collection–happy quilting!
Thank You, Sherri! I love seeing the Moda Mix & Match!!! So cute when you need a bigger variety..and if you have are a Sampler Member. I love all your videos! Thanks so much!!!
Your fabrics make me happy. My stash does not. Any advise for those of us that have changed fabric tastes over the years?

I, too, REALLY enjoy Sherri’s blog & all the gorgeous fabrics she designs – its always a ‘treat for the eyes’ and creativity. But I also have lots of older fabrics – from the 40’s and forward, but many are from the 80’s and 90’s when I was working & had more spendable cash. Yes, the fabrics have changed, but how I ‘liven up’ my stash is I buy small amounts of current fabrics fairly regularly. I have a very limited budget, but I do this by shopping sales, close outs, and of course my standby, thrift stores and yard sales. I have a large amount of fabric, so I’ve been taking lots of my own stash to the class I teach for sewing and quilting to seniors at a senior center to use. I don’t want to go ‘toes up’ someday and leave a huge inventory for my family to deal with. I give 95% of what I make to others, and will continue to make quilts to be raffled at the senior center to raise funds for the program & to give to others. Is this something you might wish to do? Making comfort quilts for seniors, for fire/police staff to give to fire victims or children they remove from homes, to honor our veterans & to donate to raffle for worthy causes all will assist you in using up some of the older fabrics that are still good fabrics & mix in more current prints, too. In effect you would be ‘turning over’ your fabric mix this way & providing a much needed source of comfort to others. My focus has been quilting scrappy for decades now, as I’m very frugal and enjoy the mix of colors, patterns and era of fabrics. Hope this helps you!

So excited to see the mix and match come to light! I struggle with treating collections as “exclusive” so this very helpful.
Another tip of yours that has really helped me.
*Visit Modafabrics website
*Select menu and scroll to Learn *Choose Inspiration &Resources
From here you can sort by designer, collection, style, etc. Clicking on the collection name will provide important info about each swatch. The most helpful for me is instead of clicking the collection name, move to the right and select “swatch page”. Here you will see the entire collection and also coordinating Bella solids.
Hopefully by sharing your tip it can help others as well!

I feel another “Sweet Day” project coming on. Two of my favorite designers.
Natasha Parker says
Your new “mix and match” segment is exactly what I was looking for to get inspired! I hope this can be a new recurring topic.
Judy Vidito says
I love your fabric. It all goes so well together and mixes easily with other fabric collections.
Phyllis Walker says
I absolutely LOVE the mix and match idea you presented today! Hope to see many more of these!💕
I thoroughly enjoy your videos. I’ve been watching you and Chelsi since shortly after you began doing the YouTube videos and you have come a long way! You are both so much more relaxed now and are always improving on what you’ve done previously. Hearing Billy chime in occasionally and ask questions is delightful.
