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!
