From Outside In

That's the name of my new fabric collection for Moda Fabrics and I couldn't be more excited.
I took this super-quick preview shot yesterday after I laid all 33 prints, 6 solids, and 1 cheater cloth print (yes, there's a cheater print in this collection too) out on my dining table. These are just a few and they are all beautiful!
See the one on the very far right? Well I'm washing that one today to prep it for this pattern, but with this modification.
And I'm thinking about re-creating this pillow with the stripes in my new collection.
And I have plans for a quilt that features the prints set against a neutral background. Maybe with some curved piecing for extra, good measure.
I wasn't planning on having today's post be about these fabrics, but when I opened the box(all 78 pounds of it), I got so excited, I knew I would share at least a tidbit about this with you all today.
Now it's back to the projects I was working on and clearing some shelf space for these new beauties.
Have a great weekend!

Thanks for the heads up on that pattern It's wonderful, and a perfect way for me to get back into garnet sewing.

78 lbs of fabric....wow..I think I would have done the same as Patty and rolled around on them. Love the colours.
Oh, I will be in Austin for a couple of days at the end of my vacation and would appreciate fabric shop recommendations if you have 5 mins to jot them down. Thanks xx
