Spectrum Fabric by V and Co. for Moda Fabrics




Well hello! It's been a while I know. I took a bit of a hiatus. Sometimes you have to do that. After a bit of time with health type things hitting our house we decided, it's okay to step back and say "hold up, what's important here?" The answer was FAMILY. Family is what's most important. So with that, I decided to take a few steps back, simplify a few things in my life, and hire a couple of wonderful women who contract their time to V and Co. They have made it so I could focus on my family at this time. So while V and Co. used to be V (me) and Co. (my children around my ankles) for so long, now its me and two wonderful women who will continue to make things happen… at a slower pace but still making things happen. :) 
So enough about that. Lets get on to what's happening here:
Introducing Spectrum with Moda Fabrics (please contact your moda rep to order). Your local quilt store   and favorite online store can now see and start placing orders for this fabric line. The ship date for this line will be January 2017. Which seems like a long ways away, but actually it's only like 4 months away. Oh dear heavens, we will be in the dead of winter in 4 months! Ugh!! No happy thoughts!!!
What better way to brighten up the drab horribleness of dead of winter (do you think I might have a thing against winter?) than this lovely group of fabric?!

Lets talk a little about it shall we?
Its a smaller line it has 30 fabrics all together.
And you'll have to take my word on it…its a must have for your stash.

Doesn't it look like a party?? Wouldn't this be perfect to get in January when all you want to do is live in sweats and eat triple chocolate chunk ice cream from the carton while watching netflix because its just so darn depressing and cold. (again I may be a little bias and hateful towards the cold) And no I didn't just describe my winters…I was just asking for a friend. Wait was I asking? ANYWHO!
My absolute favorite are the Text (yep that's my writing) and the little triangles…they come in color…and are so cute...but lets gush a little on the low volume ones:
What's written on the fabric you ask? The text is yard measurements converted to inches. So you know how on a pattern is says "cut 2/3 of a yard" and most of the time I'm fine and I'm like yeah 2/3 of a yard is 24 inches, but lets say you're cutting at like 11 pm at night and you're a little tired and honestly you shouldn't be cutting fabric but you want to get it done…take a look at your cheat sheet fabric with all the measurement conversions! You are welcome you can thank me later.
And do you notice anything about this collection?
If you said that Spectrum goes beautifully with our V and Co. Ombre, you are correct!!! With the ombre being a basic, you can always have your local quilt store or favorite online store restock them, so go ahead and use them up and just buy more to replenish the pretty on the shelf…and PSSSST I have more patterns coming for ombre as well! 
Sooooo, are you excited to see the patterns?? That will come on Monday and I promise to have a nice Giveaway and a discount on all PDF patterns.
I'm a little excited about showing them off…and we finally jumped on the MINI quilt craze with our first ever stand alone mini quilt pattern. :) See you Monday!

Introducing Designer Bundles of Bella Solids

 Hello! How has summer been treating you? Mine has been a blur I must confess! Every day I get in bed exhausted, just to wake up to do it again the next day. We've had camps upon camps and have been working on boy scout merit badges up the Ying Yang! But there is something quilt related (okay there's a bit more than just one something but you'll see that in September.) But right now I want to focus on this.
A few Moda Designers were asked to put together their own Bella Solid bundle…So I went to town and picked a few of my favorite colors to work with (ahem do you notice how gorgeous these bellas would go with our V and Co ombre??

So I had some fun!
I took the bellas from my bundle and used it in my Endless Summer Quilt. And even though it uses yardage instead of the cute fat quarter bundle, it is pretty and I really can't wait to make one in real life. :)
 Then I had fun and made up our Rush Hour Quilt 
And it looks great in the bella solids!!!

And here's some fun facts: go to my Instagram account and enter to win this pretty bundle
And then go to the Moda cutting table for a chance to win one of the other designer bundles as well!

I am so excited to announce a couple of new patterns for our V and Co. Ombre Fabric with Moda!

As you all know the fabric has now shipped to your local quilt stores and your favorite online stores!

So this time around we have two new patterns featuring our V and Co. Ombre Fabric:

First up we have Fruit Salad:


 In this pattern you will find 4 yummy fruit blocks. We have Peaches, Plums, Strawberries and Pears. Perfect summer fruit if you ask me! (as I type this with snow still on the ground outside..but it's okay summer will come before we know it!)
And may I just add, it also comes with Judgey cat approval or sabotage? Well if it has her approval you know you can't go wrong.
this quilt measures at
Each of the fruit blocks uses our ombre fabric, and as you can see here with the strawberry block we used the popsicle and hot pink ombre for the fruit and the lime green ombre for stem and leaves. So many shades in just one bolt of fabric! This is why I love this ombre fabric! When it would have taken 6-7 different solid fabrics here you have it all in one bolt! AWESOME SAUCE. And word to your muttha.

Quilt finished size is 79" x 83" This pattern includes step by step instructions with color illustrations, pictures, diagrams and template. 
Traditional piecing method.

Next we have Moroccan Getaway

I can't really express how much I love this quilt. Its so bright and cheery and a perfect pattern to show off the V and Co. Ombre Fabric 
I've said it before and I'll say it again: you can use this Ombre Fabric in any quilt pattern to give it a bit of oomph and character! When used in traditional quilt blocks the fabric takes on almost a hand dyed feel to it because of all the different shades and movement it gives the colors!
This quilt uses all 20 colors of our V and Co Ombre. And they look beautiful together! 

This Quilt comes in 3 different sizes!
Large: 79" x 91"
Medium: 57" x 68"
