Fresh Vintage & Other Fronts
Thank you for the abundance of choices!

Patisserie has shipped... & it's time for a giveaway!



I love those words... "has shipped"  or the words " is arriving on store shelves" or the phrase " has hit the streets"... need I say more?  There is something about those words that is exhilarating for me as a designer. It is the moment of truth. I have envisioned & designed it. The design team has executed it. The mills have created it. MODA has marketed and sold it. Stores have bought it. I have gushed about loving it. But until now, you haven't gotten to play with it! Until now....

And so here it is and hopefully at a store near you or if not certainly at an online store near your fingertips! 
Even as I was gushing some more about it here for this wonderful gal, I couldn't help but find myself back on those little criss crossing streets...




So here it is... just in case you don't already have your hands on some of these goodies we are having a little giveaway and a name contest all at once. 


We are giving away 1 Jelly Roll™, 1 Honey Bun™, 2 Turnovers™, a complete set of Patisserie patterns & a surprise gift for the winner[s] of the name contest. 
When you leave your comment, please share with me some possible names for my upcoming projects. I can't share the projects quite yet but you all did such a fabulous job with names last time we did this that I am confident you can come up with some again "project sight unseen". 
Use Patisserie as your inspiration and just go for it! Multiple entries for names are just fine but we will only count 1 towards the contest.
We will choose winners next wednesday...
These below are the gorgeous Patisserie pages from the infamous MODA Playbook given out at Market. Can't  you just feel yourself transported??




Thanks for playing along.
Talk to you soon.


It all looks beautiful and I would love to win some.

As far as naming future projects what about doing something with the word 'edible?' For example if there is a blue colorway you could call it 'sky edibles' or 'blueberry edibles' etc. Hope you get inspired from all the suggestions.

Oooh yummy! I like Meringue. Chocolate Meringue. Meringe Truffle.

Joanna, thanks for letting us have our input. Any connection with this line is an honor. I love it! My suggestions: creme de le creme, Parisian cafe`, cafe de Paris For your new lines I still think France conjures up luxurious and fabulous thoughts, so how about: Belle Paris, Marseilles, or magnifique. As our one time French exchange student, Nathalie, always says to end correspondence, I kees (kiss) you.

I positively LOVE this fabric line!!! It is scrumptious to say the least. Some ideas for names are:
madeleines (lovely, light French cookies with a shell-like design)

creme brulee (is their anything more light and decadent at the same time???)

profiteroles au chocolat (maybe a play on jelly rolls?)

crepe Suzette
