It’s here! The beautiful Grace collection by 3 Sisters for Moda. The entire collection has arrived and is on our website now. Besides the 45″ fabrics, we also got in Layer Cakes, Jelly Rolls, Charm Packs, and 108″ wide backing fabric. There’s plenty of selection for making some beautiful quilts with this inspiring fabric.
We’re thrilled to be expanding our line of wide backing fabrics. With the cost of cotton rising, it is much more economical to use wide fabric for the back of your quilt. Our goal is to have a large variety available so that you can be sure to find something pleasing. Why not make the back beautiful too?! Here are the pictures of the newest backings….
Thanks, everyone for your patience and support while I was gone. I was immeasurably blessed by my time in Ghana. I went expecting to enjoy my time there, but it was above and beyond anything I ever imagined. I loved it. I loved the people, loved the culture, and loved especially what God worked in my heart and life through being there.
I was pleasantly surprised to find out that batiks are hand made in Ghana. One day I was driving through Elmina with Conrad and some other SALT to Ghana workers. Through my window I spotted a beautiful display of batik fabrics. I was immediately excited and told Conrad to remember this spot because one day I wanted to come back and see those fabrics. He said, “I’ll drop you off right now and be back in 15 minutes after I run my other errand.” Wow! What a deal. I was totally surprised to walk into that little shack and find a lady in the back of it stamping the batiks RIGHT THERE! I had so much fun visiting with her. When Conrad found out that I enjoyed it, he told me that one of the micro loans the mission gave out helped start a batik business. He was sure that Sister Martha (in Ghana they often refer to each other as “sister”, “brother”, “aunt”, or “uncle” regardless of relation) would be glad to show me the entire process start to finish. Indeed she was! Sister Martha and her crew were wonderful and gave me an excellent education.
They drew their water from a hand dug well.
What you see is NOT what you get…. I declared that they “dyed by faith”! Notice the color of the fabric when they first put it on the line to dry. Then notice the color of the fabric when it is finally almost dry. 🙂
Introducing – Butterfly Garden by Kansas Troubles Quilters for Moda! We just loved the warm colors of this collection. We went ahead and bought the WHOLE COLLECTION. Every single print in the collection is ours to enjoy until it sells out. We think Kansas Troubles fabrics make some of the warmest, coziest quilts. The colors are so easy to work with.
These are the pre-cuts we ordered. We really like working with Jelly Rolls and Charm Packs. They make a quilt come together so fast and the colors all blend and we hardly have to think when we work with them! Of course that is great. 🙂 Quick and easy! Isn’t that a great way to get a quilt done?!
Enjoy the new fabrics! I think you’ll like them too!
Great news! We’ve expanded!!! After our move we decided to make a temporary decision to only carry fabric designed by 3 Sisters for Moda. It was a tough decision because we love fabric and we love variety, but it was necessary because of the recent upheaval.
I introduce to you – Whimsy by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda!!! It is a delightful collection reminiscent of childhood days and good old antiquity. The colors are the typical softened shades characteristic of Fig Tree Quilts, but yet have a clarity to them. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
Watch for the new patterns and kits to be added soon that use this wonderful collection of cotton quilting fabric!
