When I got back into sewing after my kids were born, Moda didn’t excite me. I feel badly for saying this….but all their fabrics seemed like “old lady” quilt fabric. Now, however, I feel very differently. I LOVE love love Moda. I believe it’s a combination of my expanding fabric palette and the fact that they have brought really really great designers on board in the last several years.
So when I knew it was time to add some solids to my inventory, I looked a few companies but quickly narrowed it down to Moda’s Bella Solids or at Robert Kaufman’s Kona Solids. And for me, Bella won. They just seemed softer and higher quality from the samples I compared. Not as stiff and loose. I didn’t conduct super official studies, but I wanted to send out a product that I felt confident in…and Bella won. Plus, I really appreciate that Moda sells to independent shops rather than the large chain stores.
I’d like to pass some onto you to see what you think! So I’m giving away 2 (yep!) Fat Quarter Sets of all the solid colors I currently have in stock! (That is 27 total but just fyi, 2 are from Michael Miller. Their Jet Black and Jet Brown are must have in your stash!) And let’s not end there! Oh no!
To go along with all the wonderful solid colors, I have 2 copies of this great book! Easy Pieces Quilts is chock full of projects, and not just quilt projects! There are bags, crayon rolls, placemats, skirts, scarfs and more. I’m really annoyed with myself for not ordering 3 copies so I could keep one for myself!
(There are a few more pictures on my Flickr page.)

(fyi, you are no longer Fans. You just like me. Much less commitment than becoming an official fan, does that make you feel better?!?!? )
I’ll pick one winner from the blog comments and one winner from my Facbook page. But not until next week. I’ll be gone this weekend….
Over the next several days, I’ll be highlighting many of the great Moda fabrics. (And by golly, I better have that quilt ready to bind before I leave town on Friday!) But you don’t have to wait on me. All Moda fabrics are on sale right now.
And can I just say that I love you guys! I don’t tell you that often enough. I really appreciate that you support my independent shop!
PS. Of course, international entries are always welcomed!
