Moda Blog Hop Time!
Welcome to Day 4 of Moda's latest visit with all
of the designers.
Today is my day and I am honored to be sharing it with Barbara Brackman and
V & Co. Be sure to stop by their blogs too!
The theme of this blog hop is "Size Matters" and my newest line of fabric "Family Tree"
(available in stores this fall) definitely illustrates how size matters.
The panel is an actual family tree that you can use to applique your family
members (little birds) onto.
The number of birds on your family tree depends on the
SIZE of your family!
Our family is still growing......
(As you can see from this picture of my husband's birthday!)
.........so our tree is not full yet.
(Notice there is a lot of room left for many, many more grandchildren!)
For the Hop, each designer was given a block to create
using our newest fabric.
We were to create a finished 18" block and incorporate it into a project.
These are my 2 blocks. I just couldn't decide which
color version I liked the best when laying them out.
So, I tried both
and appliqued little birds from the group in
some of the blocks.
Using the blue block, I made this simple pillow
(I plan on making the orange block into a pillow too!)
Barb Cherniwchan of Coach House designs has created several wonderful
patterns using "Family Tree," including the wall hanging
Stop by her website
