It was breakfast at Moda for us on day two. An early morning appointment with lattes surrounded by beautiful quilts and gorgeous fabric. This is always my favorite appointment of the show. We meet an hour before opening and get to work in a nearly empty hall. It's a great time to view and photograph quilts and see collections without the crowds.
Annette and I loved many of Moda's twenty two new collections. Here are a few of the ones we bought:
This is Papillon by 3 Sisters
Designed from an 1860's quilt found in an European flea market, this beautiful group includes delicate botanicals in faded reds, dusty pinks, and muted aquas with touches of stone. We look forward to the arrival of the complete collection in February, Precuts and kits for the above quilt will also be available.
This is A Walk in the Woods by Aneela Hoey. This charming collection has a sweet storybook feel with candy colors featuring Little Red Riding Hood and her crafty fox friend.
A Walk in the Woods will also arrive in February.
We loved this quilt (left) by Basic Grey. Hello Luscious is just that. Stylish. Provocative. Charming and just plain luscious! Hello Luscious will be here in February.
I wish this photo was better. The quilt is made from Layer Cakes (10" squares) from Cosmo Crickets, Salt Air collection. It has a warm vintage feel with beach themed prints. I adore it. We'll have fabric and kits in March.
This is California Girl by Fig Tree. Love the big 20" blocks in this quilt. All fabric, precuts and kits for this quilt will arrive mid March.
Let me know if you'd like to win these:
They are cute little 2" squares. Each individual stack represents a complete new Moda collection. I'll do a random drawing and two lucky winners will each receive six mini packs. To be entered in my drawing tell me which of the above quilts you like best.
Tomorrow I'll show you the last of my Quilt Market photos which includes promised photo of Amy Butler's husband, David.
You won't want to miss it.
