Oh to be a Moda Block Head....

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a fabulous holiday season!  Wasn't Christmas just yesterday???
I've been busy sewing and writing patterns and January absolutely flew by faster than any month I can remember.

A while back, I hinted to be watching for new things happening in my crazy busy world. First, if you haven't already heard, Madison is going to have a baby brother in the spring.  We are all excited beyond words.  So while I'm involved in secret sewing, market sewing, Moda projects, soccer games, etc, I've got baby boy quilts to make! 

Today, however, it's all about a very fun and exciting project involving 5 fabulous Moda designers and myself...a Block of the Week featuring:
Lynne Hagmeier

Jo Morton

Jan Patek

Lisa Bongean

Carrie Nelson

and ME!


Patterns are designed and fabrics are chosen.  All we need is you to join in the fun as each of us present our 6" block and pattern every Wednesday, beginning March 8, for 48 weeks.
 It will be sew much fun!

Each of us will post our pattern and our block in a rotation every 6 weeks.  I'm second in rotation and my first post will be March 15.  Lynne will get us started, March 8.  Posts will go to our blogs,  Facebook and Instagram.  With patterns available on the blogs. More details will be available as we get closer to the start date, and as we go along.


Yesterday, I cut these cute starter bundles of 24 - fat 1/16s. 
At the top of the photo are my selection of backgrounds from Rachel Remembered, which will ship to shops in April.  You may like only one background. Can I NOT make up my mind???  I do love scrappy backgrounds and blocks!  The other 24 prints shown are selected primarily from Rachel Remembered, and supplemented with Hope's Journey.  Print selection may vary, based on availability. The bundle of 24 prints are available now for $18.00 plus postage, if desired. (and sales tax, if a Texas resident) 
Just let me know if you would like one.

NOTE: if you reply to me without a valid email address, I cannot reach you to send the package.
my email is in my profile.



Each designer will be offering a starter bundle. You might want to collect one from each designer for a really scrappy quilt!

Too much information for today?  
All you need to know is keep an eye on blog posts, Facebook and Instagram and let's have some fun sewing!
