Fall Quilt Market 2018

There are quilts to be drawn for the catalog, pattern notes to be written - if nothing else, someone has to make the quilt!, and fabric still to arrive.  It's crunch-time - and surprisingly, that's a whole lot more fun than you'd think.

In the meantime, there was also a pre-Market catalog.  There are five big catalogs every year - one for each Market, two pre-Market catalogs and then the Christmas/Holiday catalog.  

This is the August 2018 - or Fall Pre-Market catalog.

Moda Piece Issue No. 33. 
(Print copies are only available to shops with Moda wholesale accounts.)

This is some of what's in the catalog...

These are a few of the collections showing to shops now - available next January and February.  

This is Stacy Iest Hsu's Best Friends Forever.  (In shops in January 2019.)

This is Sweet Romance - it measures 62" x 81" - and it's one of four quilts Stacy designed for Best Friends Forever.  There's also a perfectly adorable doll panel.

Sweet Violet by Jan Patek.  (February 2019.)

Retro-modern?  Modern feedsacks?  Let's just go with funky and cool.  

Cheeky - the quilt.  

Hickory Road by Jo Morton.  (January 2019.)

The shades of brown... they're almost edible.  They might need a cocoa rating - 70 percent.  

Hickory Road.  This spectacular quilt was designed by Moda's own Susan Stiff and the pattern will be a Moda Project Sheet.

Crystal Lake by Minick & Simpson. (February 2019.)

Quilts?  Of course Laurie has designed and made several spectacular quilts with this new collection.
