When it comes to the name of our latest Moda collection which arrived last week, I can only think about...feeding the birds. I just need to find the steps of St. Paul around here...
The new collection is of course the beautiful Tuppence by one of Moda's newest designers, Shannon Gillman Orr.
But let's back up to Mary for a minute. How can anyone not love Mary? Practically perfect in every way she is. Who wouldn't want to be tucked in by this woman??? BTW scroll to the end to see Emily Blunt as the new Mary Poppins for "Mary Poppins Returns."
The best moment of the song for me is at 2:25 when the orchestra begins. That's really where I get all the "feels" otherwise much like Jane & Michael Banks....I'm ready for bed. LOL.
The gorgeous colors of Tuppence however, will keep you wide awake!
When we moved out of our previous location last December, we missed collections that arrived between January and April. Now that we've been in our new location of Charbonneau for 8 months, new fabric collections and other new items are arriving almost weekly!
By the way, Tuppence is inspired by an afternoon sipping tea in a garden. Just looking at my Fat Quarter Bundle above has visions of cobbled paths, moss covered walls and flower beds filled with Tulips swirling in my mind. We are not fully into Autumn and yet I'm already thinking Spring 2018.
Christmas? What's that????
That was seeew two months ago! LOL. In Quilt World...we plan ahead!
If you haven't been into our new Shoppe, one thing is perfectly clear....we are brighter and our new space is like our very first location. We didn't do primitive when we started and we aren't doing primitive now except for wool projects. At one point we had so much primitive, all I saw was brown, brown, brown, brown. Everything started to look the same. We decided to go back to our roots in this new location and that's how we like it.
The "Mothership" loves color and thus...has fallen in love with Tilda fabrics! In fact, the first collection we will be carrying is the new "Cottage." Until that arrives, we have bundles of "Harvest."
Just look at those colors! Tilda is entirely another world when it comes to quilting.
Here's a block of an upcoming project! I'm sure I'll feature more of it when it's fully quilted.
Have I told you that everything I am showing you right now is all on just one table in the Shoppe? Seeew much inspiration...on ONE table!
I always try to include plenty of patterns and books to inspire you with. A little advice: don't get caught up on the one or two finished models we may have in any particular location. I challenge and encourage everyone to find that pattern we haven't made and create something you love. Pictured below are two of my absolute favorites....
That's all I have room for today....except for some tasty English Bread Pudding I'm about to eat from Lux Sucre Desserts!
I'll take a bite and be sure to leave it on a plate for the next person. LOL.
Coming up I've got Moda pre-cuts galore, Corey Yoder's new Flower Mill & Joanna's new Hazel & Plum on the horizon plus our Seasonal Workshop, Homespun & Holly update (December 1 & December 2 if you want to join us), and 2018 Designer Workshop Announcements!
Stay Seeew-cial! ~ Brian
