If we do another give-away, will you be understanding about our lack of blogging?
Thought so. You people are sooooooo easy.
This arrived today. A HUGE box of scraps. It is what is left after Moda made all the Salesman sample cap sets. You know, one of these.
This box (which is about 30" high) is stuffed with American Banner Rose scraps. Some are thin strips - just the thing for strippy quilts like this....
This was made with the same kind of strips of Charlevoix by NancyZ.
Some of the scraps are pretty generous, like this....
I will jam pack 4 priority mail boxes with scraps and pick names from the comments. You have until midnight Sunday May 1st. There are a lot of quilts in this box - just waiting to be made.
Oh, and about that sample above of the bumble-bee fabric...... that was a prototype of a fabric that was supposed to be in our Wiscasset collection. The bee is and was a symbol for Napoleon and many of the fabrics in that collection were inspired from old French fabrics. We also like the idea of a bumble-bee and the agrarian society that the brand new United States was at that time. It is also a symbol of industry. All good things, right? Well, once we got this back from the mill all anybody could see was that it looked like our fabric was covered in flies. That wasn't so good. All the best intentions, but it was a dud. The head of design at Moda gave me that as a souvenir. Some good ideas just don't translate well at all.
Back to work....
