MODA– in style, fashionable
PILLOW- (throw pillow) small pillow for decoration: a small decorative pillow placed
on a couch or an armchair
TALKto reveal information, especially when being pressured to do so
Welcome to the  Moda Pillow Talk Blog Hop!

Those of you that attended the Moda schoolhouse during Quilt Market fall 2010, you had a chance to see some of the moda designers show off their PILLOWCASE CHALLENGE. Each of the designers were challenged (by me) to make a pillow that describes them. It could be their design process, their history of textiles or just as simple as something that makes them happy. The definition above for talk seemed fitting since I did pressure them to talk about themselves and stand up in front of people.  The pressure has continued because now I have asked them some intriguing questions. They are going to reveal some answers during their “Pillow Talk”.  I promise nothing to risque. Oops, I can’t promise anything with this bunch of gals except that you will WANT to follow along. 

Find out about their current fabrics, patterns and other projects and….. 

Just one of the questions the moda designers will be answering during the blog hop…..

  1. DEB STRAIN doesn’t have anything on her age, all you get is a message to come back another time …… & to sign up for email updates…… how do we see her design

  2. Just wanted to say thanks for all the fun that “Pillow Talk” has provided for me! Meeting the designers was especially great and I have bookmarked several that I especially liked. You have a great set of people working for you … no wonder Moda has been my favorite fabric since I started quilting!
