    Moda's #1 group at Quilt Market last weekend

    The Moda rep came by today and told me that their Number One collection at Market was by a new designer, "V and Co."

    Apparently for a brand new designer to have the top collection is pretty much unheard of!

    So who wants to see what it looks like?

    What do you think? Does it inspire you? What would you make from these fabrics?

    (Hint: I'm told that the designer herself was wearing a skirt made from the gray and white dot fabric.)

    I love the ombre fabric although I'm not certain how I'd used it in a quilt. It screams skirt or sundress to me.

    IMHO the fabric is pretty but I wouldn't use it for quilting.

    Meh! It doesn't impress me at all. Too bad because I'm a Moda fanatic.

    Several of the designs spoke my name. I especially like the several 'nature' style prints in the various colors. The ombres would be great to use as individual strips/squares/shapes of the various shades to get variety of color from a single piece of fabric.

    I can also see using some of the more 'geometric' designs in a quilt for a child or teen.

    I absolutely love it. If you have people who are doing more modern quilts and/or will venture out it could be used for anything. I am doing a Marti Michell sampler quilt (BOM) using the "Stitch in Color" and am loving it, but it is a little out there. Trying to think of something offhand: Swoon; Market Fresh (Urban country Qults), Transparency Quilts (especially the ombres) or using the ombres for a tumbling blocks quilt.

    I think a simple Jelly Roll Race in the ombres could turn out quite pretty. I think the more modern style quilt would be great done up in these tones. The fabric she had her skirt made out of, will make a great dress for my dress loving 4yr old!

    I would walk right on past it, although if I saw it in a quilt that someone else made I would probably like it. It's just not my style. I don't buy designer groupings.

    I can see why it was a favorite. I like it all and think any of it could be used in a quilt, even the ombre.

    I like all of these...... especially the gray green combination. Simple quilt pattern would look great
    with all these coordinates. This group is different and new!

    It's all very pretty, but not something I would use.

    It looks like all the other modern design fabrics out there now. It's pretty but not special enough for me. Quilt shop owners need to know their customer base before purchasing a lot of one designer.
    Got fabric?

    They're ALL great! I like the prints, I like the color combinations. There is nothing not to like about any of it

    That said ... I rarely buy more than one fabric from a line. Mostly because I rarely shop for a specific quilt with a design in mine. BUT ... there are a number of them that I would enjoy adding to my stash!

    And I really liked the flower quilt "Bloom" at the bottom of the page.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I'm going to help my niece with baby quilts for her twins. She has been forwarding inspiration pictures to me this week. All of the images she sends me have colors like these. She wants to have print rectangles pieced into strips with solid gray strips joining them, very linear. Thinking this fits in with the Modern Quilt style, I've ordered a book to shift my brain to that mode. I do really like the straight line quilting that is prevalent in the Modern Quilts, which is why it perked my interest when she showed me the pictures. I wouldn't choose the colors myself, but I really enjoy looking at the quilts that are made with them. And I think the look is a refreshing change for nursery gear.

    while i think it is nice it is not exactly my taste but I know a mom who would just flip over these. I am actually going to show her them for a baby quilt she is wanting me to make.
    when life gets you down go and talk with a little kid. They will help you work out even the worst problems with their simple logic.

    Not a fan...I'm probably in the minority. I prefer more traditional fabrics.....now I'm ducking and hiding! LOL I lost all attraction to Moda, but I'm probably in the minority on that one, too. I've noticed a decline in quality over the years and have heard war stories on how they treat their designers.

    Love the designs. The colors are so vibrant. I don't think I would use it in a quilt, though. I prefer the old reproduction fabrics from the civil war. I am trying to branch out of my rut.

    MY LQS just got back from Market and showed me what she ordered. She stepped outsider her box and ordered this. I was glad. Brights/moderns are so popular. It will extend her customer base and I want that for her.

    I could use it in making stuff for younger women. They would love it.
