    It's probably not what you were expecting! This group by Ingrid (is she a new designer for Moda?) features gnomes and mushrooms. Moda will also be offering FQ bundles, charms, layer cakes, and jelly rolls. All due in stores in mid April.

    Any ideas for those prints? The dots and checks are generally useful. The mushrooms make me think of a set of canisters that my Mom had in her kitchen in the 70's.

    How would you use this group?

    Is it just me or do the mushrooms remind everyone of a 1970's cannister set??

    Gnomes-Yay!!! I love gnomes!! When I get old(er) I'm going to be the crazy lady with hundreds of gnomes in her yard. Don't know what I'd make with the fabric but love the gnomes and of course, I'll buy some!!

    I can't think of a way I would use this fabric. My DD would love the colors though.

    LOVE the fabric! Maybe a kitchen set... apron, potholders, towel trims, etc. Use the panels for the middle of a throw quilt. Too Cute!

    I bet we had the same canisters! I doubt the fabric would even catch my attention if I was browsing in the store. Gnomes just aren't my thing and I've outgrown mushrooms. Sorry ;)

    They don't appeal to me and I love gnomes. I'll be skipping on these and yeah on the cartoonish look and hurting my eyes.

    A picnic blanket, placemats, potholders or table runner for the kitchen, m a y b e a quilt for a kid, b u t ...
    The cartoonish gnomes are my least favourite of this line, too. Like the dots, which are always a no brainer.
    Just my two cents.

    We decided to order all the dots ('cause they're fun) and all the checks; together just these will make a nice grouping. And we ordered the mushrooms on brown and the gnomes on yellow.

    By the way, it's actually a nice yellow, not too goldy and not at all mustardy. Not too strong; should "play well with others".
