primitive muslins from Moda, by Primitive Gatherings!

I have some great news!….look at my vintage muslins I have designed for Moda!  This is so cool…they asked me to do some aged muslins at the Chicago Quilt Festival…so I was to deliver them to Cheryl at Spring Quilt Market…so of coarse I waited until the day before we left to make them… I experimented with some kona cotton ..they turned our just wonderful…the 5 swatches  here are what Moda has come up with from  my samples…The piece they are laying on was one of the rejects…too much mottling…the others were more of an overall mottling of the “tea dyed” look…so I thought I would share this with you and any of the shop owners out there that read my blog…Moda will be offering these at Fall Market…I think they will be a dream to work with…I have been using the Marcus Brother aged muslins, but they can be a little stiff…these new primitive muslins from Moda will have the same wonderful feel that Moda is known for….I will let you know when they will  be ready!  LB

    Well of course I LOVE these – I use the Marcus Brothers as well but they are stiff – you just can’t lose on Moda Fabrics and with your touch – PERFECT. I’ll be waiting to hear when there ready:).

    Great job, Lisa! I am so looking forward to having dinner with you in Walker, MN on September 17th. I was wondering if you could please bring 2 of those nifty plastic cases for me that you sell to keep the Valdani in? Mine is getting full and I though if you could bring them with I could avoid paying shipping costs. I can’t wait to meet you and see your trunk show!

    I love the tea and coffee stained prints them came out with, use them all the time in projects.
    Love having more to choose from, they are great for stitcheries too.

    You amaze me with all your accomplishments. Do you sleep?!! There is a real need for these type of fabrics for the prim world.

    Trying to firm up a weekend with my quilting group to come stay at The Gathering next summer. The place is looking great.
