Paradiso — Fairytale Dress and A Giveaway!

We're getting excited as we near the ship date for my upcoming fabric line for Moda Fabrics, Paradiso! Some projects have already been popping up and when we spotted this one, we knew we had to share it with you.
Becca DuVal created a dreamy storybook dress for her adorable daughter, Kaelyn, using a few of the prints from Paradiso. She also did the styling and photography and, well, the photos speak for themselves. **Beware, there is so much cute ahead it's almost unbearable!**

2015 Designer Mystery Blog Hop

Hi, everyone! I'm so happy to be amongst the group of Moda designers participating in the Fat Quarter Shop's 2015 Designer Block of the Month. The fabric used this time is Snowman Gatherings II by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings. It's a wonderful, wintery collection that fits the snow-covered village scene that Lisa envisioned for the finished quilt. You can read more about it here. Here are a couple sneak peeks:
Cute, huh!? And for a sneakier sneak peek, you can even take this fun quiz to find out which Designer Mystery Quilt block fits your personality! I got the "Apartments" quilt block. How about you?
For this blog hop, we were asked to answer the question, "Out of all the places you've visited, which is your favorite?" For me, it kinda changes depending on the season. Right now, since we've had soooo much of this (yes, this was on Monday and there's even more to come this week)...
...i'd have to say one of my favorite trips that Pete and i took was to St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Can you blame me??
How about you? What's your favorite place to visit?
Before i drift off in a daydream about warm tropical breezes and crystal waters, i should let you know that you can sign up to participate in the Mystery Block of the Month over at Fat Quarter Shop!

Don't forget to visit all the other designers who are blogging today:

Have fun!
