Quilting on a Cruise

A couple of weeks ago I posted that I was teaching on a quilt cruise and we were waiting for the fog to lift.

I need to get back to that post so you can see what it is like to take a “Quilting Cruise”.

We did have to wait for the fog to lift that day but we were off and catching up very soon.

Modern Art Pattern cover quilt

I am getting phone calls asking about the fabric I used for my Modern Art Pattern cover quilt, so I decided to give you the information so you can shop at your local quilt shop!

The fabric is from a very new line from Moda Fabrics. It is called “Little Black Dress 2″

I fell in love with it the first time I saw the samples! In fact I used it in two samples for two different patterns presented at fall quilt market.

The Modern Art Pattern cover quilt is a twin using five fabrics for the center.
