'Flurry' is in the Forecast!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We sure enjoyed spending time with our families and sharing yummy food and lots of laughs with everyone. Now it's time to pull on those new socks, wrap up in that new scarf, throw on that new sweater...and get outside to shovel! What a pile of snow we've gotten here in the past couple days. It's really beautiful and picturesque and our backyard has been transformed into an arctic scene with meringue-like snowdrifts holding soft peaks along the contours of our garden.
Uh, but the downside of the snow/wind is that our flight was cancelled (insert lots of bleeps here). Yes, the one that was supposed to whisk us off on our tropical vacation! So, we spent the better part of yesterday on hold with various airlines (insert more bleeps), but were lucky to have been able to rearrange our plans so we'll leave on Saturday instead (thank goodness!).

In the meantime, how about i introduce you to my new holiday fabric line?! It's called...
F l u r r y
and i absolutely can't wait for you to see it in person! It will be going out on the road with the Moda sales reps soon (though i think some of you may have seen it already?)..
Here's a peek at the precuts:
The colors are a bit more traditional red and green, and this time around the aqua has become a clearer blue that is a perfect backdrop for snow-filled skies or frosted windowpanes. Even with these changes, i think it will coordinate quite nicely with any scraps you might have of 12 Days of Christmas. There is a really fun panel in this collection that offers lots of possibilities for supercute (that's one word, right? if not, it should be) quilt designs that i'm sure you'll dream up waaaay before me — though i have to say,
i do have a few in mind...

I'll share more about the inspiration for the line and show you a few of the prints...very soon!

  4. I love those true mid-greens (not dark or light), kind of a retro green, that you've put in your new range!

  5. Flurry looks very inviting. I can hardly wait. Glad you were able to reschedule your tropical vacation. I feel so badly for all the folks that were stranded over the holidays.

  6. At least you didn't get part way on your trip and stranded in an airport somewhere. You'll have fun once it all works out. Happy New Year. And, thanks for sharing a flurry of a different kind. The fabrics are beautiful.

  16. all of your fabric lines are super cute, too bad i have only seen verna in person, all the others have been online only, so i can only imagine what they actually look like in person. hope you had a merry christmas, and a happy new year kate, i know we got hammered with snow here the other day. the wind has died down, so the kiddos will be going out to play today in it. i will hopefully be sewing with my new machine after i get done shoveling a few places.

  23. So excited about Flurry. The snowflake is my favorite pattern. The detail of the design is so wonderful and the color palette is divine. I was lucky enough to be working when the Moda rep was in. It's fabulous! Well done!
