A Friday Mixed Bag...

A Friday Mixed Bag...

Written by: 

It's Friday.  The pre-Market catalog drops on Monday with more than a dozen new collections.  Spring Market in Portland is less than two months away.  (Ack!) And today is National Puppy Day!

This is Max.  He's a terrier mix and he 11 months when this picture was taken by Elias Weiss Friedman - aka The Dogist.

This is Stretch.  He's Stacy Iest Hsu's creation using her Woof Woof Meow collection - it's titled All Wrapped Up.  (And okay, so Stretch might be the name I gave this quilt.)

Woof Woof Meow is in shops now.  A stack of Stacy's hand-drawn dogs and cats, bones and paw prints, and a super-cute panel.

This is my favorite fabric in the collection - Small But Mighty.  (I may have gotten a piece for a zipper bag.)

It's pink!  What's not to love?

Ditto.  This is 11-week old mini-Aussie Shepherd Daenerys Targaryen.  That face... those eyes!  (I'm guessing her parents are fans of Game of Thrones.)

There's been plenty of work the past few weeks with getting patterns finished, others started - designed, and now it's all ready to go.  Catalogs have shipped to the Sales Reps and the digital version will be on www.modafabrics.com next week.

I'm never going to get caught up with my sewing "want to make this" list.

With Market approaching, the Sample Room is busy making space for the new fabric collections that are arriving every day, so that means moving out "old" fabrics that are shipping or getting ready to ship in the next month.  Like the beautiful Pepper & Flax by Corey Yoder of Coriander Quilts.

These are Corey's - the quilts and the picture.  From left to right - Lemongrass, Garden District, Dappled, 9th & Vine and Barn Star.

Make something beautiful.  Those are the words on the front of each pattern.  With Pepper & Flax and these patterns... I think that's definitely do-able.

This is Barn Star - it's a one-big-block quilt that finishes at 40".

Because it's Friday, and because we need to make room on the shelves, we're going to give this kit and these patterns to one winner.  (Backing and binding included.)  Just leave a comment by Midnight on Sunday, March 25.  Any comment.  Weekend plans.  Do you like yellow?  Do you have a barn?  Really - any comment will do.

From The Dogist.  If you've not heard of The Dogist, it is a very popular blog and Instagram created by Elias Weiss Friedman in 2013.  After being laid off from a job in advertising, he decided to pursue something more authentic and creative.  Inspired by friends in New York City's startup-entrepreneur culture, he chose to combine the two things he had loved since childhood - photography and dogs.  Two books - The Dogist: Photographic Encounters with 1,000 Dogs and The Dogist Puppies - world-travel, charitable works and many thousands of dog pictures later, he's a busy, happy man. 

That's it for today - Happy Friday!
