Fall Quilt Market 2011: More Moda

Moda has an in-house mini-collection called Made With Love (in fact that was the theme of the Moda boothscape this Market). It includes this great vintage sewing-themed print, a few ruler prints, and a few different types of cut-and-sew labels for your projects. See it all here in this .pdf. The fabrics are out in [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Moda – Quilt Blocks by Ellen Luckett Baker

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 [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Moda – Summersville by Lu Summers

I got to meet and talk to Lu Summers for about half second, but at least I got longer to gaze lovingly at her fabrics and projects in the Moda¬†booth. I’m just crazy about Summersville and I’m counting the days till April 2012! Needle cases! Related posts: Preview: Summersville by Lu Summers for … MODA! [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Moda – A Stitch in Color by Malka Dubrawsky

Malka Dubrawsky is a freaking genius and I feel smarter and more creative just for living in the same town as her. If you follow her work, you know commercial fabrics are just a starting point for her. She dyes, bleaches, and stitches to come up with guaranteed unique creations. One of the first things [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Moda – Salt Air by Cosmo Cricket

Nautical collections were a distinct theme at this market — they were about halfway divided between classic boating-and-sea motifs and more wild, creative interpretations. Salt Air by Cosmo Cricket (their second collection for Moda) falls in the latter category for sure. Salt Air has scales-within-scales, whale’s tails, a graphic take on a seashell, bubbles, and [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Moda – Ten Little Things by Jenn Ski

Jenn Ski is now with Moda — her first collection is called Ten Little Things and will be out in March 2012. I say no more complaining about the lack of boy-friendly fabrics (and patterns), people! This is just one of several boy- and man-leaning collections you’ll see coming out of this Quilt Market. Lissa [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Moda – A Walk in the Woods by Aneela Hoey

A Walk in the Woods is Aneela Hoey‘s new collection for Winter 2012 (due to stores in February, with pre-cuts available December-ish). It combines her sweet drawings (those foxes!) with where-have-you-been-all-my-life coordinates. It’s also a return to the great color palette of pink, red, grey, and light blue that she used in her first collection, [...]

It’s with Moda and it’s called Quilt Blocks, to be released in early 2012. She writes that “This collection was obviously inspired by quilt patterns, but I wanted [...]
