New Moda Fabric Collection: FLATS

You may recall a little tutorial post back in 2009 that made it's debut on the Moda Bake Shop titled Flat Emelie and Matt.

Inspired by my kids, I was determined to find a way for them to play with paper dolls and not have to worry about them getting torn or bent up. Paige loved her paper dolls but was always getting upset with her little brother when he would play too rough with them and a doll would loose its head... literally!

So after mom {that would be me} finally started to get tired of hearing the screams and crying, she decided to do something about it for good! Then the Flats story began...

A few years went by and the Flats lived happily in their new Flat world. Kids played with them, they traveled a bit and even visited a few quilt shows along the way. 

Then one day, their creator decided it was time that they go on a hiatus and take a little time for themselves... you could call it a refresher in some sorts. So, that is exactly what they did. They had a grand time getting new clothes, new shoes... they had a whole new wardrobe!

When they came back they went out and got themselves a new dog, a new cat and even made some new friends!

They even went out and got a new house!

It is the perfect size house for them to sit and chat for a while.

The Flats are so happy in their new Flat land and can't wait to meet all their new Flat friends!


 Be sure to check out the my new Flats fabric collection from Moda Fabrics at your favorite quilt shop coming this May!

Blogger's Choice Bundle

I think I will declare this week Fat Quarter Shop week!

Yesterday, it was the Huge Book Giveaway including a copy of my book,  Stop. Go. Quilt. Sew! Now, Today... my Blogger's Choice Bundle giveaway hosted by Fat Quarter Shop. 

I was so excited when they emailed me and asked if I would be a part of their Blogger's Choice Bundle collections. Of course, I said YES! How could I say no?? Hand select a bundle of my choice? Yes, PLEASE!

So, I decided to pick fabrics that would work perfectly with my new book,  Stop. Go. Quilt. Sew!  Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy... A book and bundle that work well with each other. It's like peanut butter and jelly... or ketchup and mustard... or needle and thread... or... you get the point.

OKAY... enough about my book and blah blah blah.

Go over to the Jolly Jabber and leave a comment with which Hot Seat Combination you think I selected. If you guess correctly, you could win your own bundle hand selected by me. GOOD LUCK!

Thanks, Fat Quarter Shop!

P.S. You think maybe next they will feature my new Flats collection??

Janome MC8900 QCP

I love it when the UPS man comes to visit my door and brings me packages that look like this...

 Isn't she so pretty! I can't wait to try her out and see how she purrs. {squeel!}

I love Janome machines! My first machine was a Janome Jem and I still have her. She is great for beginners, so she is hanging around for the kids to learn on her. Then I upgraded to an MC6500 which she was my go to machine for almost 9 years. She is still running strong and will still come out to play with MC8900 QCP when she is needed. But for now she is going to give her gears a little rest. She just tends to have a little trouble with clothing since she doesn't have a very small arm to get around at the base. Now, the MC8900, she will be able to do it all! 

Now for a name?? I have never named my sewing machine before... but this one needs a name. Any suggestions? Ah... while were at it, why not name all three machines... Gotta be fair, right?
