Coming Soon From Moda!

Have you seen this Moda ad yet in McCall’s Magazine?  Just so happens I have a copy of it.  May have to get it framed and hung on my studio wall!  Why?  Because I’m a Coming Soon Moda Hexagon!!!!!  One of these little hexagons is me!!!! ME designing for Moda Fabrics!!!  Pinch me before I faint!  Moda, the company of my dreams!  Moda, the company with the most gorgeous fabric ever.  Moda with the most creative ideas, and wonderful designers.  MODA!   Can you believe it?

Boxes of my premier fabric line for MODA have been arriving for the last three weeks!  First the yardage, and then the box of sweet treats I told you about filled with jelly rolls, layer cakes, bundles, and BEAUTIFUL charm packs.   You could hear me screaming with delight when I opened that box!

Here’s a sneak peek of a pink and brown jelly roll.  Couldn’t you just have this with your tea?  These rolls are so pretty and Moda’s offering them in other colors too!  Just wait until you see them!

And how about this selvage?  Have you ever seen anything so cute?  The color dots on the selvage are bunnies!  I couldn’t believe my eyes!

So start thinking sophisticated, posh, chic, satin, satin pre -made pleated ruffles, baby and not just for baby.  I’ll be showing you peeks of what I’m working on as I go along and telling you more about it.  My fabric line with Moda,  “Lily & Will” makes it’s debut at Spring Market, May 21st!  Get ready to wrap yourself and your baby in “Sophisticated Chic”!

I have so many exciting things planned for this fabric.  I hope you’ll love it as much as I do!  We’re hopping at Bunny Hill, surrounded by Moda fabric!
