i'm not really sure how i've kept this to myself but back in march i got an email asking if i'd like to submit some designs to moda fabrics. yup, that's right, i said moda fabrics... i replied saying not on your nelly...i'm kidding, i'm kidding! of course i jumped at the chance and nervously sent off a box of goodies and waited a rather anxious couple of weeks for them to arrive. then i received an email entitled 'it's a yes!' and i let out a rather large squeal of joy heard in several counties and after lots of waiting and several months later, here we are with a stack of sample fabrics and only 6 weeks till quilt market in houston where i shall be officially revealing my debut line for moda fabrics! it's to be called (what else?) 'summersville'...how exciting is that??? i'm so, so happy with how the samples have turned out, the scales are a tiny bit different than the originals, and i'm thrilled - especially with scandi, which has been supersized, OMG, brilliant! there are 8 designs in the range in 5 different colours and guess what??? some of them are coated! that's right, like oilcloth. i can't tell you how much i'm looking forward to seeing the samples of that!
so over the next few weeks i'll be showing you my projects for market - i've lots of things planned and not long to make them in...so what am i doing yapping away to myself here? i'd better go and chain myself to the sewing machine...i can think of worse fates...tomorrow i should be a little further forward with my first quilt and will take some images for you to see. SQUEAL!
