FRIVOLS!

Did you know I have a Frivols tin?  Do you know what a Frivols tin is?

CT-Frivol-Contents

They are cute tin boxes that feature a little quilt made with a current MODA fabric line.  There are 12 total…Mine is number 7!  Lucky no. Seven…that’s ME…Lucky to be able to share my love of fabric with my MODA fabric lines!!!!  Each tin has fabric to make a little quilt. Moda…has put together this project, its packaging and they are just so cute…I love to collect tins…to store all kinds of quilty goodies in…

So this tin features my current fabric line called Songbird Gatherings and here is the little quilt that this little bundle makes!  It is 28″x 28″, a nice size. You also get some kind of treat…like the cracker jack prize!  This one contains a little sheath for your scissors…with MODA on it!!! Someone also said some pretty nice things about Lisa Bongean in this pretty box…made me choke up a bit!!!IMG_5855lisabbongeanOh..one more thing…each of  the Frivols tins come with a block pattern and our selvage quote on it too! How fun is it to collect selvages with quotes on them!!! This quote is one of my favorites and how fitting for Songbird Gatherings!IMG_3921 (2)…if you collect all 12 tins you will have a little sampler quilt too…here are some of the blocks from the previous six tins.  If after reading this post if you MUST have one of these limited edition tins…you can get yours HERE

As long as I have your attention… I’m going to show you the fabrics in the Songbird Gatherings collection or range, as Jen Kingwell would say..she’s an Aussie..they say fabric range…like we say fabric line or collection…just thought I would educate you, when you get to take that trip down under..IMG_6119IMG_6120IMG_6121IMG_6123As you can see the colors and the prints are VERY nice! If you HAVE to have any of these prints they are all available on our site HERE…along with all the precuts!!!images-5Also…here are couple of quilts made with the Songbird Gatherings line…

I also take in progress photos…some are so fun!!!IMG_3886 (1)These pinwheels are 2″ here…1 1/2″ finished in the blocks…images-3We still have some previously offered (1-6 )  Moda designer tins available at both our stores…just visit our sites…some may even be on sale!!!  Wisconsin   California 

Did I mention…I love my MODA sisters…Spring Market is next month and I can’t wait to hang out after all the hard work we do to get ready!!! We always have a great time, especially at the Moda party, which I call the stress relief party!

Now this was one long post…so to reward you…do you want to win a tin?  I’m sure Moda sent me something to give away and I’ll sweeten it up a bit too!!! Share with me what YOU think I should design next for a  fabric line? colors, theme or whatever!!!…I’m thinking this will be fun to read and see if we think the same!!! Now keep in mind…I have some already in the works, so it really won’t be the next…but future…I will also do a give-away on Instagram this weekend too and another post about…something Frivolous I do!

Well the fun must come to an end and I must pack for MI…you will read this while I’m already there…all for now…LB
