I LOVE to see the new Moda catalogs and I bet you do too. Here’s the latest pre-market catalog from Moda, hot off the press!  They have some of the cutest fabric lines ever in this issue, and they’re introducing a new designer, Annie Brady! Welcome to Moda Annie Brady!

Click link below and enjoy the catalog!

Pre-Market Moda Catalog

I don’t have a fabric line in here, but a lot of my friends do!  You’ll find so many “fun” things throughout the catalog!  Check out the new Bella colors, the new Moda basics, and new Grunge fabrics!   Most of these collections start shipping to shops in August and September and I’m making a wish list of bundles I can’t live without.  What’s on your wish list?  Did you find some things you just “have to have”?

Thank you Moda for once again making our fabric world exciting!

Moda has two fun things happening this year that you might not know about yet.  First is a year of contests called “12 Designers, 12 Months, 12 contests”.  If you put all the prizes you could win from entering these contests together,  you’d need a truck to carry it all!  

 

Each of the participating designers have a contest for you to enter.  Each contest is different, so you never know what’s coming, but they do have one thing in common, prizes, prizes, prizes!  Here’s the list of participating designers:

 

If you’d like to participate in these contests, visit the Moda blog on the 5th of each month to read about that month’s designer.   Post your finished project each month to Instagram or Facebook.  You can choose one contest or try them all.  It’s fun to see what everyone creates and you could win some great prizes!   Just look at what Kaari has created with the assorted blocks her winners created!  You can see the January and February creations by searching Instagram or Facebook with the hashtags #12contestsfrenchgeneral or #12contestssweetwater.  The Me & My Sister challenge has just started and they have the cutest table runner for you to make!  You’ll not only end up with a great table runner, you could also win some prizes!

Blockheads

Next is the Blockheads group.  It’s a free block of the week from 6 designers!  Blockheads starts this week, and you’ll get a total of 48 blocks, one each week for the rest of the year!

Here’s block #1 from Lynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles.

You can find the blocks and pattern each week on The Moda Blog!

You can see more pictures on Instagram and Facebook by searching for #modablockheads and they have a Facebook group that they just started called Moda Blockheads.

Thank you Moda for inspiring us!  Because of you we devote every minute we can to quilting!

Have a great weekend filled with fun sewing!

Hugs,

Anne

It’s scrap bags and thread this month at Bunny Hill.  Sue and I spent a wonderful sunny day out on my driveway, bagging up 3 huge boxes of scraps from Moda;  one box of Sugar Plum Christmas and 2 boxes of Lily & Will Revisited (cotton and flannel).  All of these bags are currently residing on my dining room table waiting for us to add them to our website!

 We also made up grab bags from our left-over Spooky Delights fat quarters.

If you’ve purchased a scrap bag from us before you know how much fun they are!  These are the end cuts of the sales reps sample cards.  You’ll get a piece of every fabric in the collection, but sizes can vary from a 1″ strip to a strip as wide as 9″.  In order to share the fun with as many of you as possible, we’ve limited the number of bags you can purchase to 2 bags per collection.

Since we’re also featuring thread and floss this month I thought I’d share with you how I keep my Cosmo floss organized.  I found this little cabinet that my husband chalk painted for me.  It’s just perfect for storing floss.  In the first 4 drawers I’ve arranged my floss by number, and the bottom 2 drawers I use for my metallic and special floss.  I still need to make some pretty labels for each drawer, but I love how this system works.  When I purchased this little cabinet at Farmhouse Wares, it was more rustic looking.  The white chalk paint gives it more of a shabby look.  I just checked and I don’t see it on their website, but if you contact them they might be able to get more of these little cabinets.

We’ve put all the thread and floss on our website on sale.  Valdani Pearl Cotton, Cosmo Embroidery Floss and Aurifil thread are all 25% off during the month of March.  We’ve packaged our Cosmo Floss Collection into 4 bags, just like the floss in my drawer, making it easier to find a color.  You may also want to try the Cosmo Metallic Shabon-Dama Collection.  Because this collection is so hard to get, we’ve only got a few in stock now. We’ll be getting more in just a few weeks, and remember this thread sale goes for the entire month.  March is a good month to try some different threads!

You’ll find the thread and floss sale active now, and later tonight we’ll make the scrap bag category active.  You’re getting advance notice my sweet blog readers, before I announce it in my newsletter tomorrow.
