It went on tour and at the end was given to a solider. Please scroll down and share a photo of YOUR Red, White & Blue quilt! article continues below ad The pattern... Continue reading

Are you ready to sew Block 7 of my quilt The Sweet Life? Learning to sew in High School was pretty much life changing. I took Home Ec, and even though my friends from HS didn't like it, I was over joyed to be in that class! From sewing to cooking, I learned so much and loved every minuted. My mom and dad had brought an old sewing machine to Europe with them, the kind where you used a knee press to run it.. remember those? Once I showed this HUGE interest in sewing, they got me a 'Genie' on... Continue reading

For the quilt along, the patterns will be available for FREE download each month around the 15th on the Fat... Continue reading

Are you ready to sew Block 6 of my quilt The Sweet Life? This block is Cupcake Love. What is sweeter than a cupcake on Mother's day? I wish I was able to see my mom today, but we'll have a nice long chat instead! As I kid I loved cupcakes more than regular cake. Why? Because I didn't like the way the icing inbetween layers of cake changed the texture of the cake. Cupcakes were all cake and never got that mush feel.. too much information? I think so.. ha! I thought you'd like to see the variegated thread... Continue reading

Well... Hello! It's Gregg here, better known as the 'Shipping Department'. It's just weeks prior to the spring trade show and it can be a little crazy at a Moda Designers studio. We 'back office types' decided to take over our designers blogs for the day.. you know.. so they can get some sewing done! Normally I don't do any of the sewing.. well actually I NEVER do any of the sewing. I do the shipping (thus the name), all the event planning, all the accounting, ordering, editing, cover photography, accounting, technical webwork, accounting (did I mention accounting yet?).. plus...
