I still can’t believe I am going to design fabric for MODA!  WOW! – and then these little babies get delivered!  They actually are gonna print my fabric!  Look at these…instead of just one 5″ square of one fabric you get about 8 samples of each 5 of the primitive muslins in each pack…so…what to make with these…they are so cool..i just want to look at them…no-wait—I must take them apart and do something…maybe iron the wrinkles out first….then maybe pet them a little…ok…I will quit it!

So all my wonderful quilt shop owners or quilt shop workers out there…order these fabrics for your shop or beg your boss to get them…  They will be shipping in December…they will be offered at Market, but I am sure if you call Moda they can get you hooked up!  We are using “timeworn” that is the name of one of them for Snowdays BOM from Crabapple Hill…I will be ordering 200 yards of that one for our BOM starting in January….”treenware” is the darkest one…that is what is used in this quilt from our new Nine-Patch Gatherings book…(thank you to all who ordered it already….you ROCK!) here is a peak at it…of coarse it needed a little wool applique….so this quilt takes 2- 1/2 yds of primitive muslin…so I will be ordering lots of this one too….If you want to make this quilt…we will have this muslin…like I said…in December…but in the meantime you could be doing those nine patches…but that will only take a day with this method…time to go to our HS football game…it’s only 50 mile per hour winds….I will have to find my snowmobile suit….lol….go BLUEJAYS!

  6. oh love the look of your new fabrics, congrats!
    I know I will need some of them for backgrounds for applique and pieced blocks.
    They will give me the “aged” look I just love in my quilts…
    so when are the precuts available???? I can’t wait to see which ones I need yards , ok maybe a bolt or two of!

  7. Just when I thought I was getting my fabric buying under control! They look lovely. I ordered from you about Monday the new book, now I’ll need to be ordering this new fabric too. But I will put the bug into the ear of some of local shops as well in hopes that they get it locally.

  8. Lisa,
    Congratulations on designing for Moda! I can’t wait to get to my distributor and order some bolts to sell online! I don’t know how you find time to do everything you do.
    Just a heads up–I’m working on another book proposal and one of the quilts I designed is made entirely from your flannels (I picked up a pack when I visited your store last spring). I’ll let you know what happens.
    Have fun in Houston!
