Here's a couple new items... I would have more, but my daughter Paige who is supposed to model them for me cannot be held in one place for more than 5 seconds or she will miss out on something much more important that could be life altering.

So here are the cute little "cuts", as they are called, which are very popular among quilters and accessory makers. Aren't those darling Jelly Rolls cute all rolled up and tied in a bow?

These here are called Layer Cakes. They are 12" squares that you can use for all sorts of things. There's a little sheet included that gives some ideas for some of the things you can do with them.

And these are Charm Packs. They are 5" squares, and there are 36 in the pack: 1 each of all of the prints in the line. Same with the layer cakes. Jelly rolls are 2 1/2" x 44" strips of all of the fabrics.
They really are fun to use! I made a baby blanket using the charm packs and jelly roll strips. (But it's being quilted by my good friend Lareesa right now. I'll post it when it's all done.)

There is another quilt, my new Soire'e quilt, which I will feature at market, which I just got back from Lareesa, but I will have to take a picture when daylight returns! (Sometimes I wonder if I am part vampire, especially since reading Twilight, etc...because I'm always up late, and trying to sleep when it's light. Go figure.)

Update: It's down below.

But anyway, I will have the pattern available for that soon as well.

Oh, and here's the Retro "Groovy" Bag in the aqua colorway. Darn! Now I'm out of bamboo handles, so I'll have to order more before I can make another one!
I really like this bag... It's great for spring. (As if it's just right around the corner!) Not so lucky, as we are headed straight into winter:( It will be here before we will know it!...Except for my new Australian friends... You are just into spring, aren't you? Lucky dogs! But Soire'e (pronounced "swahray") isn't quite here for your spring sewing projects. Sorry!

This is a picture of the new quit I designed for this fabric line. It's called the Soire'e quilt. (Not a very creative name, I know) It's really fun to make, and very "girly"! The pattern should be available in a couple of weeks.

So that's it for tonight...I'm off to dream land. I guess I'm not a vampire after all:)

Gorgeous! Just gorgeous. I cannot wait to get my hands on a couple of charm packs for my rag totes. I would love to get a layer cake too...I would like to make a quilt for my daughter with it!

Just a couple of short weeks and QM will be here before you know it! Wish I was going this year!

I am looking forward to your Soiree line! I am hoping to start an account with Moda before spring so I can carry it in my shop.

The quilt you designed for it is lovely!
