A bit of holiday cheer


Thought today would be good to do what I originally intended after fall quilt market.
Moda fabrics makes up these sweet fabric packs for the designers to distribute during quilt market. I asked some of the designers if I could have a sample of their fabric to give away on this blog site. They were all very willing to share. Below are the ones I was able to collect.

 Leave your name and a comment and you could win these cute candy packs of fabric.
There is only one winner. Contest will be over tomorrow around noon.



The above picture is of our booth at fall Quilt Market. Barb took this with her iphone and it's not really a good shot ....but it gives you an idea of the quilts that will be coming out in our next book. We were planning to release the book this December but our plans have changed. The Kansas City Star will be printing this one for us and we are looking at a March release. Barb's quilt is on the left wall and mine is on the right. Same pattern ...just two color ways, showing what a difference a color palette can make. Mine uses our fabric line from Cinnamon Spice and Barb's uses a tan floral print from Cinnamon Spice (shown below) and a mixture of other prints for the flowers and leaves. Her leaves are shades of dark green....I know they look black in the above picture but they aren't. I will try and get a close-up for you tomorrow.



 

Until later!
