WHAT A WONDERFUL SURPRISE!!

Hello Dear Friends!

Well, I'm back from the International Quilt Market
held in Houston, Texas
and filled with inspiration!

This is what Moda's booth looked like before the show.
During the show the tables were filled with store
owners viewing the newest Moda fabric groups.

My booth was part of the Designer Row.
We each had a section of the Moda booth
to share our newest lines and the inspiration
behind them.

(Be sure to stop back next week to see my blog about
my new Valentine group "Surrounded by Love."
There will be prizes involved!)

I had a WONDERFUL surprise waiting for me
upon my return....
after hugging my husband and sweet
grandsons, I turned on my computer to see
this BEAUTIFUL pillow!



It was created by Karen Miller using my "Family Tree" fabric group and was featured on
Moda's Bake Shop!



Karen was thrilled and so was I.  It is wonderful isn't it?
I love seeing things made with my fabric.  It is 
like watching your kids succeed at a sporting event!!


You can see the tutorial of how to create this beautiful pillow at


or go to Karen Miller's website


 to learn more about it
and Karen's other wonderful creations.

Karen is having a giveaway too,
on her blog
so be sure to visit and
 you will have double the chance
to win!

Leave a comment by Monday, Nov. 11th and I
will send one lucky winner
a box of Family Tree scraps
to create your own
inspired project .


Be sure to stop by on the 11th to see if you have won
and learn more about "Surrounded by Love!"

Hope that you are enjoying this beautiful fall
weather!
Always,
Deb

  26. This is such lovely fabric -- the actual photos in Karen's tutorial show the vibrant colors. The fabric websites use "pictures" that make the colors look washed out. Now that I have seen the true colors I would love to use this to make Karen's pillow cover. I googled the fabric and saw that there was a panel available also? Thanks for a chance to win some scraps!
