Elena's Softies




I love it when you all send me pics of your creations with our fabrics, so I, of course, was delighted when Elena sent me photos of her sweet softies! Her craftmanship and attention to detail is amazing! Elena lives in Greece in Chalkidiki and she sells her softies at local bazaars, raising money for charities, or she gifts them to friends. She doesn't have a shop (yet!) but perhaps she will some day! Thank you so much for sending me these photos, Elena!

Zenchic




Zenchic is the name of Brigitte Heitland's company. Ms. Heitland was born in the Black Forest of Germany and when she could reach the pedals on the sewing machine, her grandma taught her how to sew! She went on to study textile design and eventually discovered quilting. She creates patterns for quilts and has been designing her own fabrics for years for Moda Fabrics. The fabrics pictured above are from our collection of Ms. Heitland's "Figures" fabrics. These lovely graphic prints in summery salmons, saffron and linen whites can be found by Volksfaden here.

Amy Ellis





Amy Ellis is a prolific quilter. She has published four quilting books, has been included in six collaboration books, writes a regular column in Quilty and designs fabric for Moda Fabrics. She sells her quilt patterns in her online shop and Crafts. She has been blogging for six years and founded the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  The festival takes place two times a year, anyone can enter and all styles are welcome, so if quilting is your thing this might be something you want to check out.
The quilts pictured above are a few of Amy's quilts using her collection "Modern Neutrals". We have some of the fabrics out of this collection for Moda by Volksfaden, I love the muted colors and her coolgraphic designs! Our "Modern Neutrals" collection can be found here.

Everyday Boho Dress


Here is a link to a site offering this cute free pattern and tutorial, iCandy-handamde. You do have to suscribe to her mailing list, but I think that's only fair considering how much hard work goes into making a pattern! The dress calls for stretch fabric so no zippers or buttons needed. Sweet.
