Paradiso Peeks & Photo Caption Contest

Hi everyone! I've been busily getting ready for Quilt Market and wanted to share some photos of my new fabric collection, Paradiso, with you. It will be shipping to stores in March 2015. If you're a shop owner and will be in Houston, please come by the Moda booth #1744 to say hello and to see the collection in person. I'd love to share it with you!

The colors range from hibiscus pinks and coral to lagoon blues and aqua. New for me is a darker charcoal grey (almost but not quite black) that i really love! Here are a couple more photos:
The other wonderful thing is that this line will coordinate beautifully with Horizon to create a perfect tropical paradise. Can't wait to see what you dream up. Actually...now that i'm thinking about it...how about we have a fun giveaway! Just leave a caption for the photo of Franny below and she will pick a winner on October 14th. We'll help her send a layer cake of Horizon annnnd a charm pack of Paradiso off to the lucky winner!
 Have a beautiful weekend!
xo,
kate
