Redo Your Sewing Room in Half Moon Modern!

We just got in the fabulous Half Moon Modern collection by Moda Fabrics and it is such a fun grouping of prints in absolutely awesome colors!! The chevrons have got to my favorite of the bunch but they are really all so versatile, you can easily work them with other collections or mix and match the colors to create fun handmade items that anyone would love!! 

And in honor of this new line, Moda teamed up with Sew4Home to bring you 8 super cool Sewing Room tutorials using Half Moon Modern! Make all of the projects over the next few weeks to give your sewing room a makeover or hurry in to the shop to grab some Half Moon Modern at 14% OFF to make one or two projects for last minute Christmas Gifts! Remember, you only have until Friday to shop in the store!

This Project Board is great not only for sewers and quilters, but kids young and old! Students of all ages could use it for organizing homework or research and can even use it just to post pictures and notes they want to hold on to! And the creative types in your life can use it as an inspiration board, to pin all the little scraps and pieces that our inspiring them at the moment! Plus, this could be finished fairly quickly! Perfect for that last minute Christmas Gift!

Ironing has never been my favorite chore but even I could get a little happy about it with this sweet cover on it! There's just something about bringing a little cheer to the mundane and this Ironing Board Cover sure does the trick!

And once you've dressed up that ironing board, create a coordinating Thread Catcher & Caddy! A great way to keep scissors, marking utinsels and pins nearby! Love the detachable pincushion! 

This Sewing Machine Cover is too sweet for words and the perfect gift for any sewer! It's so important to keep that machine protected from the sun and dust, but you shouldn't have to do it with the junky vinyl one that came with your machine! Make it a pretty cover worthy of the machine it is!

And if you have a serger, you can't just leave it naked! So create this awesome Serger Cover in another color and protect this great machine while giving your sewing room some more interest!

This Task Basket is so cute and so versatile, you truly could create this for anyone! Who couldn't use some open and stylish storage? It would be a great laundry basket, a crocheter or knitter's basket, a toy box for baby or kiddos, extra towel storage for the bathroom, a place to keep remotes and Wii controlers for a game room, I could go on and on!! 

How sweet is this little Sewing & Craft Apron? I love the striping effect of choosing several prints! And the scissors print as the tie is just too cute! A sweet way for sewers, quilters, scrapbookers, seamstresses, and even bakers to keep all of your tools close at hand while you do what you do! Who has time to look for the scissors for 20 minutes??

And last but not least, if you are giving your sewing room the full makeover, dress the windows with these super simple yet stylish Tab-Top Curtains! Also a great way to add a some color to the game room or a bedroom. This pattern could be used again and again!

New in the shop...Morris & Company!

Morris & Company is Barbara Brackman's newest collection and this one is by far one of the best! These gorgeous prints are William Morris reproductions and they completely capture his knack for translating nature to pattern!  Barbara's subtle colors echo the shades of the natural dyes so important to Morris’s vision, and I am completely enamored with the beautiful shades of orange that pop up throughout the collection! I would love to see a formal dining room dressed in these rich and detailed prints or a bunch of throw pillows in different prints strewn along a netural couch for an eclectic look! Would be fabulous on brown leather!

Or you can create this awesome quilt by downloading the FREE PATTERN here!

And REMEMBER, you MUST use the code  BIRTHDAY  in the coupon code box at the end of your order to receive 14% OFF!! Discount is before shipping and tax (Texas customers). In-stock items only! Bus trips, Patchwork Party & QuiltAid items not included!

New in the shop...Blueberry Crumb Cake!

Hey everyone! We just got Blueberry Crumb Cake by Blackbird Designs in the shop!! This gorgeous collection of blues and neutral hues tans will give your room a feeling of comfort, rest and harmony. These would be fabulous for re-doing a guest bedroom, the multiple shades of tonal prints add dimension in such a subtle way that's perfect for creating a relaxing oasis! Or you could give your sewing room a soothing and lovely feel with these vintage inspired florals and cross stitch prints!

Alma Allen, the mind behind Blackbird Designs recently posted a super sweet tutorial on Moda's County Fair for a huswife using these lovely prints! Traditionally, a huswife was used by sewers and quilters to keep sewing notions handy but it would be equally cute for toting your jewelry when traveling for the holidays!
