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.

Hey! I tried to email you back today, but my phone is only taking incoming, no outgoing. Weird.

My quilt idea? How about a manly looking quilt called The Big Fig in honor of the big fig. Genius, I know. ;-)

I love this line and your blog. I am new to quilting...but learning everyday! My french is the worst...but my favorite dessert is Creme Brulee. I would buy any fabric with that name!

Love the look of your new fabric line. Also, love the photos of the French pastries:) YUM! I've been trying to remember some of the names from when I worked in a French bakery.

how about

I love your fabrics. Patisserie is beautiful and all the patterns look great.
I have always love the way the french say the word voila and the way they use it in many situations and I think it would be a good name.

Beautiful as always...Sun-Washed Linen...Wine & Roses...Blossom...Creme Frache...Berry Tarts...maybe I'm not so good with the names:) but your fabric would have a happy home withe me!

This is such a beautiful line of fabrics! It has great potential for so many things: I can see a sweet little dress and pinafore set for my 2 girls, or cafe curtains, quilts galore!

My contributions for names would be
Cafe au lait
chocolate eclair

Wonderful job! I'm looking forward to see what else you do with this great fabric.
