V and Co: moda blog hop

welcome welcome! 
ahhhhh! i of course made the mistake of my dates and am posting completely late! i thought i was supposed to blog about me on the 15th. wrong. that's when a winner will be picked. heaven help me.
so here we go!
welcome to the moda blog hop! i'm Vanessa i just had my first fabric line with moda called simply color. 
a little about my home town.
i grew up in california, and i was born in los angeles. santa monica actually and i lived there till i was 12. we then moved to the place i call my hometown:
 if you've ever been to san diego you've heard of del mar. it's probably the closest thing to heaven there is in my world. i grew up going to santa monica beach, and when we moved to del mar in my 7th grade year, i skeptical to move from the beach i knew, but man was i surprised and now i think of it as the better part of the beach coast.
 the water was warmer, you could do surf PE and meet up at the beach and surf before school to get credit. (just so we're clear...i wasnt a surfer just dated a few. they were cute too)
there were little burger joints, and great places to get breakfast before school (ahem or during school) and great surf shops. i would walk to the beach almost every day in the summer, and in the school year i would make sure i would include the ocean view as part of my run. yup, i lived a hard life.
i think my favorite thing about living there was my walk to the beach.
as a matter of fact, my mom calls me every morning while on her walk either to the beach or while she's at the beach. i try not to cry every time i hear the waves in the background.
 there is a reason why i love blue and green so much and i believe it's because i am always trying to recreate the feel of the ocean. man what a beautiful place to grow up.
what del mar is known for:
the del mar race track though i would say they are famous for fish tacos and for what REAL BURRITOS are supposed to taste like. :P

why did we move there:
my mom wanted a "smaller" town experience for me. and yeah i know san diego is no small potato, BUT compared to los angeles, yeah it is.

now don't get me wrong. i loved growing up there. i feel very VERY lucky to of grown up there.

 but i'm also super happy of where we live today.
iowa is a fabulous place, the people are nice, you get bigger house for your buck, the lightning bugs are breathtaking, the rolling hills of corn are a beautiful sight. but really it comes down to one thing only as the reason why it is the best place for us: our children are so happy here. they are excited to see places around us (chicago, mall of america!!, lake michigan, they have made great friends, and as a family we are truly blessed. even though i miss my beach coast living, i wouldn't trade it for where we are now and how we are creating wonderful memories for my children.

okay now for the stuff you really want to hear:
here's my little candy design:
 here is the downloadable pattern (man i need a pedicure again!)
edit: okay the link now works! sorry about that!
and here's where you get to comment to win:
what i'm giving away is one ombre mini jelly roll, one simply color jelly roll, one layer cake of simply color and one cute little candy.
now one thing you should know about the little candy:

they are 2 1/2" by 2 1/2" and oh so cute...but you CANT buy mine anywhere.
yeah that's right, this little guy could only be attained if you went to market and you got one from yours truly and now i have one little guy left to give away. he's kind of limited edition if you will, only a few out there in the world. so what? well it makes him kind of valuable right?!!!
yeah that's what i thought.

so here we are:
1st chance to win: 
tell me your favorite pattern or tutorial of mine up to date.
leave me a comment telling me so. and add an email address to the bottom of the comment.
2nd chance (and 2nd comment) tell me what is your favorite color combo. i told you mine, i always go for blue and green things. how bout you?
leve me a comment with an email address attached to the end of the comment.
you have till the 15th when i will announce the winner!!!

I love the houndstooth pattern, purchased it and now just need to make one. pfh04@msn.com

Erin said...

How cool, fabric that no one else will own? Tutorial-wise, I like the "Flirty Skirt from a Men's Shirt," because even though summer is fading where I live, I still am in skirts as often as possible. Comfy, easy. I also like the "Baby Life Quilt," because it makes me laugh. ochredress[at]gmail[dot]com

Fran said...

My favorite color combo is blue and gray. I am loving both of these colors right now.

Cossebooms said...

I love gray and yellow with a little bit of teal in there to. pfh04@msn.com

Been saving up for it already!

holly.hacker at gmail.com

Joann said...

I have both of the books you have been "in" and love those...and I love "just dandy"...and have a little one that I just might make that quilt for and your houndstooth is fantastic for home dec!

susiefloozie said...

I love the sound of that mint fudge. I too am having trouble downloading your adorable pattern -- need access. Whatever.

My favorite color combo is Lime Green & Silver-Grey. Incredibly awesome!

Shannon said...

I tend to gravitate more towards deep reds, but I've grown very affectionate of the color orange in general since it was my son's favorite color. It is a reminder of him to my family and I (he passed at age 7, two years ago). So really any color combo that has orange in it makes me smile. :)

Judy said...

Bloom for sure! How exciting for you to have your first fabric line. Thanks for the chance.

Judy said...

I always thought my favorite colors were blue, red, etc. bright, cheery colors until I actually took the time to look in my closet and my walls of my house. Yellows and browns are my favorite colors. Who'd of thought? Thanks for the chance.

Ginger Combs said...

Oh, yeah. . Where the turf meets the surf! I spent many many days there surfing and playing in the sand. I am a San Diego gal, too. I moved to Southern Illinois abo75 7 years ago to retire and be near my grand kids. I miss San Diego soooo much. My fave color combo is pink and grey. I am working on a lap quilt for MYSELF for a change. I hope I win the new modas.

dianacarofano(at)gmail(dot)com

QuiltSwissy said...

I love a bit of black in every quilt. Maybe I am just goth under my skin! I love the fact that the modern gals are using so much wonderful grey. And I think my favorite combination of colors has to be teal and a golden yellow. (not that I have one quilt in those colors, mind you.)

glen

Sherri @ RebeccaMaeDesigns.com said...

Ok, Comment 2 - favorite color combo... I have SO many! I'm going with grey and purple, ya, that's todays choice - but I really love the whole color palette. Your fabric is beautiful, Congrats!

dianacarofano (at) gmail (dot) com

Joann said...

colour combo's...well that changes with whatever season is influencing me - right now we are coming up to Halloween so orange and black and fallish combo's work their way in...but as soon as the snow flies...out they go!
I am currently redoing my art studio to find more room for sewing, the walls are grey and the blinds have pretty much all the colours in your fabric lines.

Thanks for the chance to win some of your gorgeous fabric...and I will come back and get the pattern when it lets me ;-)

Jenn said...

Oh, and I love purple, and doesn't everything go with purple?

Thanks for the chance at the giveaway!

Rachel said...

Pink and brown are my favorite color combo. :D

younghomemakers(at)inbox(dot)com

~Miss Rachel~

All8 said...

Hm, my favorite colors? I think it depends on the season. In spring there's a hillside that flushes with redbud alongside the pale willow tips. Or in summer my Angel Wings rose blooms; those blooms fade from a deep pink to blush as they age, plus they smell wonderful. Or as the deep dark grey clouds move east after the rain and everything is more of itself; colors are brighter and deeper. I especially like the dark gray/black clouds against the brilliant grass green of the pastures with 1 ton bales of spun gold dotting the hillside. Then there is the fire of fall. Oh, I just can't wait for it to get here. In the winter, on those cold, sharp, clear nights and everything is shades and tones of deep blue, black and ice, and you can see for ages.

The New Mrs. said...

My favorite color combo is green with ANYTHING. That being said, I've used very little green in my quilts. I'm loving deep,saturated reds, yellows and tans

CarolT said...

Purple and green. In my house it has to be the Maize and Blue.

Kay said...

I really like your how to dye a onesie tutotial. I'm always needing a baby gift & these would be good to make up & have on hand.
Love your new fabric & can't wait to start playing with some candy charms.

Susan Standen said...

Favourite colours change all the time and with particular fabrics but I am partial to watermelon and lime green.
susanblogspot(at)gmail(dot)com

Cindy said...

I love your Little Sprouts pattern.

Kay said...

I love anything with red, but am really liking red with agua/turquoise.

MaryBeth said...

I really like the tutorial for the flower pin. I've made several for my daughter.

Cindy said...

I just made a white, lime green, and a whole bunch of various blues quilt and I am really loving the combination.

CarolT said...

Bloom is my favorite pattern of yours. Waiting for your fabric to come out so I can make it.

Larry said...

I don't know if I have a favorite color combo. I love bright and cheery colors and it depends on what I am doing. A few combos I love are pink and orange, blue and yellow, purple and yellow, and shades of blue and green.
-Nancy (blackie_85(at)hotmail(dot)com)

MaryBeth said...

I'm loving black/white with a splash of red or orange for pizazz. Thanks for the giveaway.

I like your tutorial on the pleated pillow. I made this pillow using yellow print fabric, each differant, with ble and red accents. I really like how it turned out, really bright and fun. Thanks for your help.

Deb Cline said...

Hopscotch! Looks like fun and brings back great memories!

I love the color aqua, and especially paired with black and white -- sort of retro!

I'm just like you and like blue and green. I have such a hard time using other colors besides those two. Thanks for the giveaway.

BTW- I'm living the opposite of you. I grew up in Kansas but have moved to California just this past year. It's going to be hard to not be so close to the ocean if we ever move away.

My favorite pattern is the houndstooth (I'm actually about to start making it for my baby #4) in yellow and gray since we don't know gender :) I went to school in Iowa City and you are right, the people of Iowa are super friendly. I'm glad you like it there!
