Furry Friday ... and a Fun Photo Contest (our first)

I had such a lovely time at the International Quilt Market in Houston! 

Thanks so much to Moda Fabrics for everything they do, every day. Going to market is such a special time because i have a chance to thank everyone in person for all their hard work throughout the year. It also affords me the chance to have some fun reuniting with Moda friends and fellows designers...and catching up with many passionate and creative quilters, quilt designers, and shop owners (market photos to come). I'd have to say that's my favorite part...connecting with YOU! I was so happy to see your projects using Sunnyside, In From the Cold, and even Daydream. Thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hello. It meant the world to me.

As fun as it was to be away, i was also really excited to get home to Pete and these two:
They were a little miffed at me for leaving them for 4 days, after all two cats need two servants, right? For a couple days, Franny told me to "talk to the paw"...
...and Lou pretended to be asleep whenever i sat next to him!
That smile gave him away, though. And it wasn't too long (and too many cat treats) before we were back to normal and ready to hand out treats on Halloween!

Speaking of Halloween, we're running a little photo contest on Facebook. It's just for fun, and it's still open to entries if you'd like to join in. Just click here and upload a fun, creative photo (or more than one) of Halloween and/or Dia de los Muertos ... from wherever you are. Could be of parades, pumpkins, trick-or-treaters anything -- from this year or the past.

Entries are accepted until midnight on Saturday, Nov 2 eastern time. 

The winner can pick his/her prize — either a jelly roll of In From the Cold fabric or $30 gift certificate and free shipping from our online shop! It's open to U.S. and International. 

Have a great weekend! 


  1. Your cats are so funny! Love all your fabric designs, and would love to win some. Thanks for being so generous.

  2. Your kitties are so cute! Thanks for the chance to win.

  3. Your "furry babies" are so cute! Thank you for the opportunity to win a jelly roll of your fabulous fabric.

  4. Your cats are funny! We used to have a cat that would ignore us for the same number of days we went away - to the point where she would get up and stalk out of a room we walked into! There's nothing like a cat for keeping you humble!

  5. As always your models are very fun.Great pics.

  6. Our cat would do the same thing, give us the cold shoulder when we returned home but at the same time would insist on being in the same room with us for days on end, until she was confident that we weren't going to leave again.

  7. Emailed your blog entry to my cat friends who tell me funny stories all the time. Adore "In From The Cold" ... so fun!! Have a small quilt being finished where I used "Joy" and "Flurry" leftovers. Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. I love fur babies. Of course every cat needs a servant--
