A LItlle Bit Back

I'm a little bit back today. Very little actually. Still transitioning to the first week back of school for all three of the munchkins not to mention that I am still in a timezone somewhere far, far away and will share more with you very soon.    For now I have a couple of quick updates today: 1. WE ARE ON FACEBOOK! More about that later, but for now… come and friend us HERE so you don't miss out on anything!            2. We started a little "ODDS & ENDS" sale today. Come check it out HERE.     2. MODA DESIGNER BLOG HOP HAS STARTED! Click on the Blog Hop Tour Badge on the left sidebar for more info on the posts that have already happened and stay tuned for our post on Sunday. I…

They’re Heeeeeere!

I know our new pattern release has been unusually delayed given everything going on with my dad and I would like to thank all of you who have been waiting so patiently! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart! The 5 new quilt patterns are here and have started shipping to stores and distributors as of yesterday! Yeah!! They are also now available on our website as of late last night! Yeah again!! Look under NEWEST DESIGNS for all 8 of the new patterns!   LIBERTY BOY: Perfect for today but you can work on it for Labor Day or next year just as well!   CINDERELLA PUMPKINS: Easily my favorite time of year and its never too early to start on a fall project.   MARIGOLDS: A wonderful way to use up a couple charm packs of your favorite collection. Love, love the feel of circles with…

Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

A bit later than expected but here we are. I'm finally cuddled up on my couch late on a Saturday night with my cup of tea. Its pouring buckets outside & I'm finally done reading all of the comments. I have to tell you that I really, really enjoyed learning about your guys, a bit of your history and what you love. I feel like I know you a tiny bit better! On a more personal note, it was really comforting for me to read so many lovely comments during this particular moment in time. Your words have really encouraged me in an unexpected way, so thank you so much for that! • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Our waylay over here has been due to a bit of the following: 4 1/2 Variety Show acts, 3 costume changes, 1 new strobe light as well as 3 soccer championship games in…

Winner coming up!

Just wanted to thank all of you for your lovely compliments, comments, stories and opinions! You guys are just the best! We have closed the comments at 685 to give me a chance to catch up and because we thought that was quite enough competition don't you think? I am reading them all and am about 100 or so behind at the moment so bear with me! I will post winners on Friday as promised, but most likely Friday night [California time] so I can read through every single one and then generate the winning #'s! For now let me tell you what I have learned: That QUILTING is taking an ever so slight lead over SEWING. But that a large majority of you are looking forward to both.  That so many of you started in one area and have over the years moved to the…

Introducing…

I am so very excited and proud to share with you, my latest "baby". Many a times I did indeed compare it to child birth so I guess the metaphor has stuck! My new book….   WITH FABRIC & THREAD   It feels like it has been such a long time in the coming but I guess if I look at it all with better perspective, it hasn't been that long at all- at least not for a book process that is! I will tell you much more in the upcoming weeks and share a lot of fun stuff about the process & the projects. For now I am just happy to show you this!     The book showcases projects that are both geared towards quilters as well as sewers and focuses on both of these wonderful worlds in separate sections of the book…

A little mystery…

Today's post is a bit of a mystery indeed….. If you've been following along then you can skip right down to the bottom because you probably already know what to do! For everybody else…. Today is my day on the FQS Designer Mystery BOM Blog Hop. Each day one of us lucky ladies who designed a block for the upcoming Designer Mystery Block of the Month is showing you a little detail… a very little detail…. of something that is "Vintage Modern" and near and dear to us. Something from some part of our wardrobe! For me that is the little blur of cream and green that you see above. Can you guess what it is? All of you who guess correctly will be entered to win a Layer Cake of California Girl [courtesy of Fat Quarter Shop]! Yup…
