Welcome to Deb Strain's studio...

Hi!  We are Finn and Graham, Deb Strain's adorable twin
grandsons and we are TAKING OVER today!

I'm Finnigan and I'm the oldest. I call my grandma,
"NANA."  We love to draw and paint in her messy studio!

My name is Graham and I call my grandma,
"MYRNA."  We are going to tell you about the craziness before
she goes to Market.  (Her studio is always this messy,
not just before Market!)

The weeks before Nana/Myrna leaves, everything gets forgotten (except US!)
The cupboards are almost bare...no fruit snacks even!

The laundry pile gets bigger and bigger!

There is fabric EVERYWHERE!!

We love it when new boxes of fabric come from Moda.
Nana/Myrna always says "We love Moda!"

Nana/Myrna has a Christmas fabric coming to your favorite
Quilt Store in June.

We love it!  It is bright and fun and has lots of PRESENTS
in it!

It even has SANTA on the panel.  (We love Santa!!)

Nana/Myrna's talented friend, Barb, from
created these great quilt patterns with 
Aren't they cute??

If you leave us a comment, two of you will win a panel from
Ho!Ho!Ho!  We will pick the winners
on May 3rd after 6pm. Be sure to leave a way for us to contact you.

On May 4th, Nana/Myrna will  be introducing her new Fall lines that
will be coming to Quilt stores next month.
There will be even BIGGER give aways!
Be sure to stop by!

Thanks for visiting and enjoying Nana/Myrna's
fabric!  We love her!

Be sure to visit other designers in the last 2 days of
Moda's Designer Blog Takeover!
