It’s A Country Fair!

Today is American Jane Day at the Fair…

Wait until you see Miss Henny Penny!   


Lissa Alexander at Moda Fabrics always has creative ideas…she stores them in her head and just pulls them out when she needs one.  Amazing talent don’t you think?  She came up with the idea of the Moda Country Fair Blog Hop and then she thought up all these things for us to do!  Thanks Lissa, you are just so smart!

We’ve been talking about the Moda Country Fair for the last month around the studio and somehow Chelsea got the idea she was invited to the fair.  She’s got these big brown eyes that make it really hard to say no…

So what do you tell a Chihuahua who thinks she’s going to a country fair?  You tell her “OK, OK, you can go”!

There was no stopping her after I said that.  Chelsea wanted to be in on everything.  Everything?  OK Chelsea, Lissa thought up questions for us to answer so if you’re “in” you have to answer them too!

Question #1:   What’s your favorite fair food?

This question is way too easy for Chelsea to answer!


I hope Chelsea doesn’t tell Moda what I was really thinking when I was holding this cupcake pincushion!


 Question #2:  What’s your guilty pleasure?

Something no one knows… EVERY market my friend Anne and I load up on HOT TAMALES and CANDY CORN.  We each bring several boxes and we have a sugar party the entire market.   Fall market we eat the orange candy corn and spring market we eat the pastel candy corn.  I’m addicted to these little treats and so is Anne.

…and Chelsea’s guilty pleasure?  You’re not going to believe this but it’s Broccoli with butter!

Question #3:  What’s on your bucket list?

Ha!  Is Lissa kidding?  This was way too easy for Chelsea (click on the picture to enlarge).  I swear this dog is smarter than me!  Why didn’t I think of the pink convertible?  I want one too!

Question #4:  What inspires your work?

You may not know it but Chelsea is part of the approval committee at Bunny Hill.  She likes quilts with bunnies  on them and she’s very vocal about it…she actually wanted me to design a quilt with a Chihuahua wearing bunny ears!  Oh my what am I going to do with a Chihuahua who wants bunny ears?

MY favorite thing to do for inspiration is visit the flea markets…

When I think of a Country Fair I think of a cake walk…remember those?  Since I can’t do a real cake walk,  I did a cupcake pattern so everyone can have a little cake!  You can choose from a cupcake banner or a cupcake pincushion!

Bunny Hill Cupcake Pattern

And of course when you go to a country fair you’ll probably enter a raffle so let’s have one here.  You don’t have to buy a ticket but you do have to leave a comment on this post.  Here’s what we’re giving away…

3 Jelly Rolls of Puttin’ on the Ritz…a bundle of waffle cloth and satin for baby…

…and 16 wonderful Puttin’ on the Ritz scrap bags!

We’ll be picking 20 raffle prize winners!  TWENTY!!!  I’ll pick with a random number generator (Chelsea can’t be trusted to pick) and announce them on the 14th of September.  Be sure and check back!

I hope you enjoy our Moda blog hop.  Each day will bring you a new designer, more prizes and so many free patterns you’ll be jumping for joy!  Country fairs just don’t get any better than this!

Hop on over to visit Barb and Mary from Me and My Sister Designs tomorrow.  I adore these ladies and I bet you do too!

Now that I am a transplanted Hoosier, I love the tenderloins, funnel cakes and roasted corn. I think I have a thing for fried foods although since doing the South Beach diet, I don’t eat that much frieds stuff any longer! When you said you ate tamales I thought you meant real Mexican tamales! I love candy corn and peanuts together — I thought it was wierd at first but it is addictive!!! When my BFF quilting buddies from South Bend and I get together in the fall to quilt in a log cabin outside of Shipshewana, I bring that to share. Love your give away — love your sweet cupcake pattern! Love this County Fair shop hop…my first! And your bucket list looks a lot like mine! Finally convinced DH to paint our oak veneer kitchen cabinets white — I am thinking black granite counter tops a la Ina Garten!!! Did instruct our daughter Madeleine to bring home a paella pan & saffron from Spain (where we just sent her on Labor Day for a semester of study abroad in Toledo) and anything from Paris when she goes!ReplyCancel

  • Di Ann - We have a State Fair in Minot ND every summer in July, this year for the first time it was canceled due to flooding.

  • Kathryn - You have such a wonderful imagination-what fun you must have with your grandchildren! My two Burmese kitties, Tut and Cleo, would like to tag along with Chelsea and you (well, me as well) if you are going to have biscuits with the Queen. Tut and Cleo are royalty after all and they think that between the two of them, Chelsea and Bitsy, and possibly Mooch?, the Queen, and the Corgis, all global issues could be resolved amicably if everyone is on their best behavior. They said that you and I, and possibly the Queen as well, could go to the flea markets during the serious diplomatic discussions, as long as we fly home on a separate jet. I personally am ready to accept their conditions if the invitation comes through. Thank you very much for your consideration.

    On behalf of Tut and Cleo,
    their servant,

    Oh, P.S. Cleo would like to spend a day shopping on Regent St. please.ReplyCancel

  • Nan - VERY CUTE cupcakes! Great idea for a birthday party banner!ReplyCancel

  • Em - Fair food: funnel cake. Mmmm, funnel cake. Be aware (this is VERY important) not to confuse funnel cake with the inferior “fried dough,” more popular in New England. For funnel cake, there is no substitute.

    Guilty pleasure: Reese’s peanut butter cups. Frozen. When you buy them, you want to come home and tear into the package, but it is so worth waiting for them to freeze first. Mmmm. (your questions are making me hungry).

    Bucket list: Half-iron triathlon. That’s 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13.1 mile run. Hey, I’ve got to do something to work off the funnel cake and Reese’s peanut butter cups.

    Inspiration: Color, and quiet. I believe I have a talent for putting colors together and my sewing time is my “me” time after my little people go to bed. I need that time.ReplyCancel

  • Joanne Moore - Hi Anne,
    Okay 1. Im with you, cotton candy is a fair must though my daughter devoured seveal candy apples! latest is caramel sea salt ice cream by Talenti. Ill just sneak out a spoonful..instant heaven..It has chocolate chunks in it as well.
    3. I like the idea of a treat bowl that is always full but I would like to see Prince Edward Island, The Carolinas and Bouchard Gardens and FINISH all my UFOs!
    4. My inspiration comes from the recepients of my quilts and projects. Yesterday it was a Batman pillow for my 4 year old nephews batman birthday party on Sunday.
    5. I am definitely a candy corn lover! yesterday at Joanns they had bags of them at the checkout. i was strong and resisted but then marketed at Sprouts and bought a carton of the caramel sea salt gelato!! Your cupcake pattern is adorable! Puts me in the mode for a yummy cupcake!
    I think both your pups should be taken to the fair. my girlfriend just posted photos of geese at the Nebraska fair wearing aprons!! Too funny!ReplyCancel
