Moda had a “boothlet” (thanks Katy) set up with several of their Metro collections. Oh wait — you don’t know about Metro? Along with Moda’s recent web design, they started divided their collections up into three broad categories: Metro (modern/more trendy), Style (collections with broad/crossover appeal), and Classic (more traditional). I often hear shop owners complaining that their sales rep didn’t show them this or that collection thinking they wouldn’t be interested, so this gives everyone some language to help overcome that: “show me all the Metro collections”, etc.
Anyway! Ellen Luckett Baker‘s collection Quilt Blocks is one of the Metros and my excitement over it is well documented. I even got to meet Ellen and eat dinner with her — she’s just as awesome as she seems from her blog.
Quilt Blocks will be out in April 2002. I can’t wait to get my hands on some of those triangles!
