I know we have yet to post booth pictures and finish up with our new patterns but this morning I wanted to share something new and exciting with you!
... this is a picture of the original MODERN BUILDING BLOCKS KIT in the MODA booth. Quilted by the lovely Natalia Bonner and shown on her blog here. Stealing her photos shamelessly since ours didn't come out quite right.
During Market in Pittsburgh last week, MODA revealed one of their latest projects, the MODERN BUILDING BLOCKS KIT. It is an amazing quilt. Really. Created entirely out of MODA Bella Solids, the quilt is a wonderful assortment of various sizes [blocks range from 6" to 36"] and colors of blocks that make up an overall quilt that is a feast for the eyes.
Since our booth was directly across from the quilt for 4 days, we spent a lot of time staring right at it, dreaming of it in Fig Tree colors!
... this is our Fig Tree version!
We are calling it FIG TREE'S MODERN BUILDING BLOCKS BOM! In it you will find 6 BELLA SOLIDS that we kept the same or close to the original, 7 upcoming SOMERSET fabrics and 2 current Fig Tree favorites. The kit will contain a total of 15 block fabrics plus binding along with the wonderful MODA FAN BOOKLET of patterns for the entire quilt.
For 7 months, each month we will send you a yummy packet of fabric to make sure you have enough to do the blocks for that month [and some more if you get excited]. MODA's pattern "fan" pack will be sent to you in the September shipment or as soon as we receive it [we will still send you pattern directions before the printed pack arrives]. There will be about 48 blocks in the quilt when finished but a few of the smallest blocks will be repeats.
Your shipments will begin in August with BELLA SOLIDS and current Fig Tree fabrics and will begin to include our SOMERSET fabrics as soon as it hits shelves in September, 2014.
We will work along side you in making our blocks and will show them on the blog, facebook and instagram. CLICK HERE for more info. We will take signups for the next 10 days or so or until we sell out!
We are so excited about this new project. Gotta get sewing!
