PRECUTS for SALE + Giveaway!

Today I’m adding something unique to my Etsy shop…something I’ve never added before…fabric! Precuts to be exact, just a few of my new Moda favorites. To highlight how special this addition is, I will be having a giveaway! To enter, leave a comment telling me which of these collections is your favorite. The winner will get a small fat quarter set of Garden Project by Tim and Beck. I will announce the winner here, next Friday. An email will be sent asking for the mailing address and then the lucky winners gift will be off. 


I hope you like them as much as I do.

Good luck!




Fresh Cut by Basic Grey makes my heart sing. The floral designs lead me through fields of soft pinks, blues and minty greens on a rainy day. Basic Grey has outdone itself again and created something fresh and smart. I absolutely love how the leaves are left as simple line art. Such a different edgy touch, as always, I loved it without knowing who designed it.






Nomad defies all the rules with its wide range of colors. It presents an earthy feel with its shades of blue, orange, green, and black. Urban Chiks takes me back to a time when we lived off the land. The patterns spark memories of playing along wildflower-laden riverbanks, and hunting with arrowheads and camouflage. I can’t wait to make something with this one.






Kate Spain shines in this new collection for Moda. Paradiso is simply paradise. I was swept away by the bold palette of blues, pinks, and purples. Her floral prints are modern and islandish. Tradewinds and Utopia echo this feeling with a primitive feel. I absolutely love it!








With the checkered, plaid, and bandana prints in theFeed Co. collection by Sweetwater, you’re swept away to a countryside kitchen. Complete with a recipe-laden design, Sweetwater’s collection invokes memories of flour dusted countertops and the mouthwatering aroma of  biscuits rising in the oven. Navy, black, red and turquoise combine to form a rich, bold color palette.

    I really love the Nomad collection. I believe it has such great character abd depending on the pattern you choose to use it for…it will make anyone happy to own it. You can also pair it with black and make it a very dramatic story. I would love to make a quilt using this collection.

    Paradiso is my favorite. Kate Spain has done it again. Not only can her fabrics be used for quilting they can also be used for a glamorous wardrobe. The fabrics are beautiful and modern. Thanks for the giveaway.
