And now, to introduce my newest fabric group by Moda,
arriving in your favorite fabric store this month.....


I'm so excited about this group!
The palette is a variety of shades of
soft grey

I Loved painting it!
It is so much fun to see how a pattern changes
when it is done in a different color.

Soft grey,
and pink.

At the bottom of each panel is a row of
Quilt Labels that you can use on this
project and others that you create for
those you love.

And look at the precuts!!!

  1. I love the Surrounded by Love fabrics. I would like the soft grey.

  2. Love the gray one the best! One of my favorite color combos is pink & gray.

  3. I guess I will continue with the trend--love the gray!

  4. All of the fabrics are beautiful, but I would have to choose the red one as my favorite. Red and Love go together!

  6. I first thought I was traditional and liked the pink, but after taking time to really look at the panels hanging together, I thought how nice it would be to have the grey and embroider the names of those who surround me with Love! So I've changed my mind that quick and love the grey! What adorable little ones and they look identical. You are certainly surrounded by love!


  7. I like the pink colorway personally...having said that, I just ordered the coach house pattern for the small quilt this weekend...and it is both red and pink and so striking!
    I'm making it for my husband for Valentine's Day...we almost lost him 3 years ago in Feb, just after Valentine's Day and I want him to know he is continuously surrounded by love, even in his chair, during the cold PA February weather!

  8. Gotta love the pink. It was genius to use the gray to soften both the pink and the red. Thanks for the chance to win.

  9. I like them all, but if I have to choose one, I'll pick the red.

  10. I like the pink panel the best. It was hard to pick just one color. Would love to win some scraps.

  11. Beautiful fabrics! Thank you for the giveaway! I like the soft grey :)

  12. I love these fabrics. My favorite panel is the pink one.

  13. So sad I wasn't picked for the Family Tree giveaway, maybe I'll win this one? Whoever does will love your designs. If I win, I pick soft grey.

  14. Great fabrics - I like the grey panel best!

  15. congrats to LeeAnna.
    What fun fabrics. I like the gray panel if I were to win.

  16. Congratulations on your beautiful new line. I love the red panel.

  17. Congratulations on your new luscious new lineand the lucky winner!!
    After look all the panel I`m between red and grey and if I have to choose one would be soft grey.

  18. I like the soft gray!

  19. My choice is the soft gray....

  20. I read all the way to the bottom and then saw your giveaway was a "box" of scraps which may mean I am not eligible as I live in France, I know postage will be high but I wanted to say I like the pink and the grey! Linda

  22. I really like the whole line , it will be hard to choose which one to do

  23. The pink is my favorite, but I truly love them all. They remind me of a quilt I made for my great niece with your Sent With Love collection.

  24. Another wonderful fabric collection, Deb. I like all the panels but if I had to pick just one it would have to be the red. Thanks for the opportunity to win this give-away.

  25. Love the new collection. I think pink is my most favorite but I also like the soft grey as it is something different. Thanks. kandy_poe@yahoo.com

  26. Deb the fabric line is just beautiful ! What a great idea to include the labels in the panel - we can NEVER have enough labels ! I am partial to the gray/pink panel -- versatile but delicate -- just love it. Thanks so much for the giveaway! Karen

  27. Like the red and grey, but love love LOVE the pink!

  28. Beautiful! I like the soft gray the best!

  29. They areal beautiful but I think I like the boldness of the red panel best!

  32. The fabrics are beautiful...I love the pink, my favorite color.

  33. I loved all three of them when I saw them last week, but I think I like the pink better than the other two. At any rate, they're all beautiful.
