A Friday Mixed Bag…

It’s Friday.  The pre-Market catalog drops on Monday with more than a dozen new collections.  Spring Market in Portland is less than two months away.  (Ack!) And today is National Puppy Day!

This is Max.  He’s a terrier mix and he 11 months when this picture was taken by Elias Weiss Friedman – aka The Dogist.

This is Stretch.  He’s Stacy Iest Hsu’s creation using her Woof Woof Meow collection – it’s titled All Wrapped Up.  (And okay, so Stretch might be the name I gave this quilt.)

Woof Woof Meow is in shops now.  A stack of Stacy’s hand-drawn dogs and cats, bones and paw prints, and a super-cute panel.

This is my favorite fabric in the collection – Small But Mighty.  (I may have gotten a piece for a zipper bag.)

It’s pink!  What’s not to love?

Ditto.  This is 11-week old mini-Aussie Shepherd Daenerys Targaryen.  That face… those eyes!  (I’m guessing her parents are fans of Game of Thrones.)

There’s been plenty of work the past few weeks with getting patterns finished, others started – designed, and now it’s all ready to go.  Catalogs have shipped to the Sales Reps and the digital version will be on www.modafabrics.com next week.

I’m never going to get caught up with my sewing “want to make this” list.

With Market approaching, the Sample Room is busy making space for the new fabric collections that are arriving every day, so that means moving out “old” fabrics that are shipping or getting ready to ship in the next month.  Like the beautiful Pepper & Flax by Corey Yoder of Coriander Quilts.

These are Corey’s – the quilts and the picture.  From left to right – Lemongrass, Garden District, Dappled, 9th & Vine and Barn Star.

Make something beautiful.  Those are the words on the front of each pattern.  With Pepper & Flax and these patterns… I think that’s definitely do-able.

This is Barn Star – it’s a one-big-block quilt that finishes at 40″.

Because it’s Friday, and because we need to make room on the shelves, we’re going to give this kit and these patterns to one winner.  (Backing and binding included.)  Just leave a comment by Midnight on Sunday, March 25.  Any comment.  Weekend plans.  Do you like yellow?  Do you have a barn?  Really – any comment will do.

From The Dogist.  If you’ve not heard of The Dogist, it is a very popular blog and Instagram created by Elias Weiss Friedman in 2013.  After being laid off from a job in advertising, he decided to pursue something more authentic and creative.  Inspired by friends in New York City’s startup-entrepreneur culture, he chose to combine the two things he had loved since childhood – photography and dogs.  Two books – The Dogist: Photographic Encounters with 1,000 Dogs and The Dogist Puppies – world-travel, charitable works and many thousands of dog pictures later, he’s a busy, happy man. 

That’s it for today – Happy Friday!

  1. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the puppy pics!!! And, the new fabric collection by Corey Yoder is gorgeous-darn, just when I thought I would try and shrink my stash along comes a great collection like this.

  2. Beautiful dogs, beautiful quilts!! I love Corey’s new Pepper and Flax line and can’t wait to get some! I’m currently sewing 2 projects using V and Co’s ombre confetti line and Fig Tree scraps. Waiting on Nest and Pepper and Flax!!

  3. LOVE the Pepper & Flax. I’m hoping for a Saturday snow day so that I can stay inside and sew!

  4. Yes to yellow. No to a barn…which I kept reading as BAM…LOL…time for new readers. Thanks for the dog pics. Quilts and dogs are my weakness. Corey’s fabric and patterns are gorgeous!

  5. A big fan of yellow and this is scrumptious. I’m not a big dog fan (I know, don’t hurt me!) but these puppies? oh my, how darling! Hoping for some sewing and gardening time this weekend.

  6. I would love to make a quilt from Pepper and Flax! It is beautiful. Got my dog, got my cat, ready to quilt!

  7. Well yellow IS my favorite color and I love mixing it with gray and black, so I’m in! Going to go spend time with my puppy on her special day!

  8. I love the Pepper and Flax color combination. I already have a JR but wouldn’t mind a little more from this collection. The color scheme is quite different from others in my stash. I don’t have a barn, but I always enjoy spotting barn quilts.

  9. Love the pictures of the companions! Beautiful. And this patter, is the one I’ve been looking for! One big block for my grandson Hunter! He needs a ‘waggin’ quilt, made by his Oma!

  10. Wow, what a luscious shade of yellow! It reminds me of the yellow I picked out for my childhood bedroom walls. A truly happy color to start your day with….
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  11. Just love Corey’s collection. And how appropriate to print on the front of the patterns “Make Something Beautiful”. The puppy pics are just adorable.

  12. No barn, but we love our Mexican rescue dog Max! What’s the expression – not sure who rescued who? Corey’s palette is so soothing.

  13. I love this barn block Quilt and what a lovely line of fabric. I have always wanted a smaller version of a barn block for my fence. Since that will never happen what could be better than a quilted version? I love those adorable dogs.

  14. Love the colors and 39th and Vine! The Barn quilt really catches my fancy. Yellow is my favorite color – but I don’t have a quilt that is predominantly yellow yet!

  15. Love Barn Star! SOunds like you are going to be one busy girl for the next 6 weeks! GOod luck Carrie.

  16. I LOVE YELLOW & GREY. Such pretty fabric. When I started making Quilts , it was hard to find 100% cotton and if you did you never could find yellow. Fabric has come a long way. I would love to win. Thanks.

  17. Pick me! Pick me! I’ve been lusting after this very springlike collection since Corey first started posting about it. I totally that green mixed in there. I’m heading to Little Rock for a Sweet Adeline contest this weekend, so I’ll have plenty of time to sew once I’m back. Sure would love to be the lucky winner of this great prize!

  18. Adorable puppies! Thanks also for the reminder about Pepper and Flax … when I saw early pics of it in her blog I wanted to remember to get some when it was available. Don’t want to miss it!

  19. The puppies are SO CUTE!!! And of course, ANY beautiful quilt fabric and pattern is hard to resist!

  20. Puppies and quilts- a win-win combination. Those yellows are gorgeous! Thanks for featuring them.

  21. I can’t wait to see all the new things that will be introduced at market. Love the pattern previews.

  22. Sadly no sewing this weekend (apart from small things in the car). But we’ll travel to attend a concert with my grown up daughter. So I’m really a very proud mother.

  23. Got my rescue pup when she was 8 months old. 7 years later she is still the Queen of my home. So much love.

  24. I love these fabrics and patterns! My weekend plans include seeing my parents, and having friends over for a game night. And church, if course!

  25. Looking forward to seeing and being tempted by the new fabric lines. My daughter has an Australian Shepherd and he is a great family pet. The last time we visited, Tucker took it upon himself to give us a wake-up call every morning.

  26. Those dogs are adorable…and so are the fabrics in Corey’s Pepper and Flax collection. I’ve purchased her bundle of patterns from her Etsy account and am now waiting for the fabric to be released. Love the yellow…just makes me happy.

  27. Sweet puppy faces 🙂 Love the Pepper and Flax fabrics and beautiful quilts made with them. I’m really digging the pink fabric you chose for a zipper bag as well!

  28. The Pepper & Flax collection is just gorgeous. And I particularly love the Barn Star pattern! Beautiful. Of course, the puppies are all adorable, too.

  29. Barn was taken down years ago and replaced with a big shop that is begging for a barn quilt on its front! I’ve gotta have the beautiful barn quilt of Corey’s in my house as well. I like the cheerfulness that yellow inspire!

  30. Our puppies grew up to be dear beloved old girls who have sadly all crossed the rainbow bridge and I miss them every day. That fabric and those colors are luscious! Thank you for the chance to win!

  31. Love the puppies!! Quilting and puppies….Does it really get any better?? Maybe only if you add kitties too!!

  32. I love the colors in Corey’s new line and her patterns are all beautiful, but 9th and vine is my favorite.

  33. I can’t wait for the Pepper and Flax fabrics to arrive!!! Love the barn quilt pattern, wish I had a barn to paint it on 🙂

  34. All those adoreable puppies!!! And I LOVE the barn star! I live in the Midwest, so it’s perfect for me!

  35. Love Corey’s quilts and fabrics. Every day should be puppy day, people would be in a better mood!

  36. I have wanted to paint a ‘barn quilt’. I think Barn Star will be my starting place. I don’t have a barn to put it on but I do have an easel on our front porch.

  37. Me, me, me please! Lol! Even if I don’t win, I will be buying the barn quilt pattern. It’s exactly what has been in my brain. I don’t have a barn, but I do have a hangar. Does that count?

  38. Very happy to say I don’t have a puppy this year on National Puppy Day. They are a handful. The fabrics and quilts are beautiful. Would love to win.

  39. Love Corey Yoder! My first Modern was her Make it Modern quilt. I even quilted mine like Angela Walters quilted it. I would really like to make Barn Door. Pick me!!

  40. Yellow is my favorite color and Corey’s yellow is just perfect. I’ve been anxiously awaiting her new collection for months now … I want it all!

  41. I have painted a Barn quilt for one of my barn’s but right now it is in the window of my Studio cause I can’t get my grandson’s to nail it to the barn. I need to work on them. Love the fabric and the quilt. Thanks, Nancy Pleimann

  42. I love anything from Corey Yoder of Coriander Quilts, and this is no exception. Just beautiful!

  43. I loved the puppy pictures. I like the color combinations with pepper and flax . You can’t go wrong with gray, black and yellow.

  44. Sewing and cooking—my favorite two activities, and “Lemongrass” fits the bill for both of them!!

  45. I love the Coriander quilt designs. Would love to make them all. Keep posting about the puppies. We all need unconditional love.

  46. Love National Puppy Day! Our family now has a Great Dane puppy who is 17 weeks old and about 50lbs! BOOMER. He is such a goofball. I bet he would look great in yellow ;o)

  47. Love 9th & Vine!! I never used to have yellow in my quilts, but now I am seeing it sneaking in more and more….Corey’s new fabric collection is amazing! And those puppies are awesome!!
    Thanks for a great giveaway!!

  48. Love, love the barn star, I don’t have a barn,but sew what. My week end plans include judging a 4-H food show. The little ones are so cute, and the older children are so earnest. It is a lot of fun.

  49. Great fabric for the dog lover in our family. Busy now with new calves in our calving barn so barn pattern would be fitting.

  50. I LOVE the picture of MAX! I had a dog named Max who passed but I now have Chester who looks so much like Max. Chester is such a snuggle bug and my little shadow. Dogs make life so much better!!!
    I saw Barn Star of Corey’s blog and fell in love. These are my colors…..I want them all!!!! Well off to get ready for company this weekend (no sewing). Chester is in for a treat – his cousins are coming, lucky dog!!!!

  51. My daughter and her husband recently bought an old farm. My daughter asked if I would make a quilt for the attic bedroom that is painted bright yellow. She also asked if I could design a Barn Quilt for their barn. Now you have given me inspiration for both in one post! Thanks!!

  52. Love the colors and love the puppies, but wish you had a “jump to comment” button. Or did I miss it?

  53. I love the combination of yellow with gray, but those yummo greens in the collection really send me over the moon!

  54. I also love puppies, but not training them so much. Kittens don’t need much training, tho’. I’ve often wondered why God makes puppies, kittens, babies so darn cute!

  55. I’ve just discovered Corey Yoder and I’m already in love with her fabrics! I just recently lost my old “puppy” and so I’m enjoying these pics a lot. Thanks!

  56. I’m not a big fan of yellow but I do like this. The patterns are great, especially 9th & Vine and the Barn Quilt.

  57. Would love to win, and the pup pics are so cute! But my 5 month old corgi pup really fills my heart with joy!

  58. This cute barn quilt says “Let the sun shine in” to me! Love this collection and everything Coriander

  59. I am a farmers wife and we have barns and other out buildings. We’ve been talking for years about a barn quilt—hasn’t happened yet–but someday! I’m laid up with a broken ankle now–the leg that runs my Juki, no less. The ideas are going on paper as fast as I think them. First order of business is to finish the wedding quilt for my son by June, if possible. I love Coriander’s style!!!

  60. What’s not to love about puppies and quilts! My daughter just moved back in with us and brought her son (a sweet dog that I just love to pieces)! Thanks you for the giveaway! I never win, but there is always hope!!!

  61. Love the Pepper & Flax. Looks like sunshine and spring. I am going to need the Barn Star pattern. I think it would be adorable for baby quilts and just the right size.

  62. Love it all! Puppies, fabric, patterns and life in general right now! So much to be thankful for!

  63. I love all Corey Yoder’s fabrics–this one is especially happy. I NEED a barn so I can put a barn quilt on it, but have been planning one for the back of my house where I hang out, I can fake it out there! 🙂

  64. I love Pepper and Flax, but I have sworn off buying any new fabric this year! How fun is that?!? But I didn’t say that I couldn’t win any! Haha. We have two yellow labs. One is 1.5 years old and the other is 11.5 and the new one doesn’t leave the old guy alone! Poor guy LOL. Thanks for this chance.

  65. Do three sheds and two dogs count? Of I’f only the dogs could have puppies, I could put up another shed!

  66. The puppies are darling. almost as hard to resist as fabric. Love the yellow and calm looks to the quilts.

  67. Puppies are so cuddly—and look especially cute snuggled up on a quilt of yellow. Yellow is such a happy color, and one of my favorites!

  68. Love the quilts. The soft colors are great for spring. I’d love to win the patterns and kits, especially if one of the puppies come with them

  69. Those puppies are so cute!! I do like the color yellow. It makes me think of the sun and warmth. This kit would be very much appreciated for its warmth since we’ve had two spring snowstorms and it seems like the winter weather will never end.

  70. I love yellow and gray, they are warm, happy and classic. Any sizes and age of dogs are precious, love them all!!!

  71. Yes I do love warm yellow and would love to win a quilt kit! Ewwww I have one of those cutie Aussies….Happy Puppy Day!

  72. I want the puppies! – but my lurcher isn’t quite so sure! and I love, love, love the quilt – such beautiful colours

  73. The quilts are perfect for spring with the soft colored. I would love to win th kit and patterns, especially
    If they come with a puppy

  74. I love the yellow and green and grays…and look forward to Pepper & Flax so that I can start on Garden District. The puppy pics are precious! My “puppy” is a 15-year-old mini wire-haired dachshund who still runs and plays like she’s a puppy…a daily reminder to my increasingly gray-haired self to remain young at heart! 🙂

  75. I don’t have a barn, but I do plan on making the Barn Quilt. I would also like to make the Lemon Grass quilt. Love them.

  76. Really do have a barn but would rather make that quilt for my family as it is so bright and cheery!

  77. Puppies and quilts are my favorites! The barn star quilt is absolutely beautiful and love the yellow and gray.

  78. There’s nothing like a star quilt. That yellow is a perfect color for a spring quilt.

  79. Love the yellows in that fabric line! Somehow I think they should be called “mellow yellows!”
    My friend and I want to make a Barn Star…yes, add it to the list!

  80. I don’t like yellow but I love the cute puppies and can’t wait to see the catalog (love the new B&C collection ‘Smitten’)!

  81. I love Pepper and Flax. I often think about that fabric when I’m falling asleep at night! How weird am I? LOL

  82. Love puppies, and puppy breath! Max, Jet and Blue are looking forward to seeing what else is new.

  83. I know this time of year is hectic for all of you, but I look forward to seeing all of the new collections! The Barn Quilt is my favorite of all of them- someone is going to be very lucky- and happy!- to win this!

  84. I love the little puppy, they’re adorable. And I really like the Lemongrass quilt, very pretty. I’ve been thinking about starting a log cabin quilt, this looks like something I’d love to do. My plans this weekend are to take out two rows of a quilt that I thought I’d finished; I took another look, and I’ve reversed two strips. Good thing forecast is for snow, I’ll be staying in with my seam ripper!

  85. I’m so glad to see that Pepper and Flax is shipping. Ever since I first saw pictures from Quilt Market, I’ve wanted this fabric, and I LOVE that Barn Star quilt pattern. A win-win situation!

  86. Love the Barn Quilt! Wouldn’t it be fun to make many of these using your favorite fabrics in each one? Authentic ETC in one; Harmony in another; and so on~~
    The dogs & puppies are darling and make me miss my Miss Rosie, a Brittany, even more.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win! If I do I will share with my quilty friends!

  87. Love Pepper and Flax! It hits just the right color combinations and the patterns are super . I’m going to have a hard time staying on my fabric diet. Love all the pups, too.

  88. Love the puppy pics! Yellow is one of my favorite colors. I am going to finish my jelly roll rug this weekend!

  89. do you suppose Moda would let us trade in our old stashes for some of these new lines? Or better yet, trade in our old non-Moda stashes…. (some people have non-Moda fabric laying around, I’m sure)

  90. I love that yellow fabric and all the rest of the fabrics that go with it! I really want one of those little white puppies in the last picture!

  91. The Pepper and Flax line of fabric is lovely. Would love to make a quilt with that line!

  92. 2 mini aussies, both rescues and the loves of my life, a barn and a beautiful spring day. What more could a girl want, except maybe a few yards of this new fabric line to brighten the day. Have a great market.

  93. Yay, Nationsl Puppy Day! We are owned by a Samoyed. 🙂 I would love to win this kit. Thanks for the opportunity.

  94. I have been looking forward to the release of this collection. Green and yellow are such happy colors! Love the doggies!

  95. My Goodness! What a wonderful giveaway! I’m in need of some bright sun shiney fabric here in Northern Minnesota where we are STILL looking at snow! The patterns are super and the Barn Quilt kit would be great fun to make!

  96. All this new beautiful fabric and quilts are just going to make my to do list longer! I think that is a good thing! Thanks for the chance to win.

  97. Here in Minnesota it’s still winter although the sun is shining bright & the sky is blue! Snow in the way. Weekend will be spent working on a Christmas quilt. All blocks done so putting rows together!

  98. I love Corey’s new collection — the yellow, gray, charcoal, with some green in there, too!

  99. That Australian Shepherd puppy is too cute… would love to donate this quilt kit to the Thomas Fire Quilt Project to bring a bit of sunshine to someone who lost their home in the fire.

  100. Oh these fabrics are perfect! My littlest granddaughter needs a yellow and grey quilt for her toddler bed! Thanks for opportunity to win this adorable kit.

  101. Love the Pepper and Flax fabrics. Can’t wait for it to come into my local store. We’re off to a vineyard tomorrow evening for dinner and a glass (or two) of wine!

  102. I love Pepper & Flax, it’s such a great color combination! I have already bought the 9th & Vine pattern. Of course, the puppies are adorable too!!

  103. My puppy gets the cast off her broken foot today. Can’t wait to get her on walks again. She is a border collie/ mcnab mix and loves to run.

  104. I love everything about your blog today! The puppies! The puppy quilt! The pepper and flax fabric! All those patterns! Great eye candy for sure!

  105. Weekend plans involve 3 kids with soccer games, celebrating Palm Sunday, and, if I’m lucky, sewing. I love sunny yellow and it looks fabulous with my favorite blue. I don’t have a barn, but would would love a barn quilt.

  106. I love puppies (just adopted a deaf guy who is a complete darling) and yellow and barns (okay really big shed shaped like a barn in the backyard – but not filled iwth fabric) thanks for the chance!!

  107. This would be a fun collection of fabrics! I see a dachshund or two! My personal fave as we have 3!

  108. Oh my heart. I love dogs. We have a Border Colli/Australian Shepherd mix named Gibbs. If you are an NCIS fan you will recognize the name. This weekend I plan on working on my Quilt Guild challenge quilt. BTW it is yellow and gray. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  109. Yellow is my favorite color. Pepper and flax would fit right in with my stash. Also am planning a barn quilt this year.

  110. i do like the pepper and flax line. For me, yellow is a happy colour and the greys look so nice with it. The patterns are tempting. The Irish chain derivations have lately been in my wish list but I think dappled would be my choice. (because I am dapples) The dogs are so cute and I just adore the dachshund quilt-adore it and my daughter loves it. What a great quilt for children too. I wish I had a barn. I was entranced a few years ago when I was staying in the Englehart, Ontario area and the county had made a project to put barn quilts on the barns to celebrate the Plowmatch coming to the area. Why can’t there be house quilts on the houses in the suburbs?

  111. The colors in this line are beautifully classic. I can see some of them in my stash soon. And, oh the dogs, I want one of those too.

  112. First off — I LOVE PUPPIES & DOGGIES of all kinds! Remember to “adopt don’t shop”!!
    Secondly — I LOVE Cory’s new Pepper & Flax collection & my favorite is that Barn Star!
    Thanks for the giveaway! Not to be too greedy but PLEASE CHOOSE MY NAME, PLEASE!

  113. I am away on holidays and can’t wait to get back home. I miss my fabrics and sewing machine – I want to quilt, quilt, quilt ….. Thank goodness for Blogs, websites and Facebook – I can follow my quilting and fabric sites to feed my love of quilting.

  114. I love yellow and I love this pattern. Oh and barn quilts – I love those too. And Corey Yoder, and quilting, and so much more!!!

  115. I’ve been waiting for Pepper & Flax to hit the stores since you first showed pictures from Quilt Market – I love Barn Star and have a spot on my living room wall reserved for it!

  116. Love the puppies. We and our dogs are heading to a medieval themed event this rainy weekend…hopefully it won’t be too wet. I will have a quilt binding to work on in the car.

  117. I love the new line of Pepper and Flax! Those puppies are also adorable. Thanks for a chance to win:)

  118. Yellow isn’t at the top of my list for most used colors, but I just LOVE the yellow and gray combo. Thanks for sharing such lovely quilts.

  119. What a Joy! Big block pieces to work with…nice change for me! Not usually a yellow person but I love the combination of gray and yellow in the collection – Think Spring!

  120. I don’t sign up for many giveaways, but I have been waiting for this fabric line to appear and what a bonus, some really great patterns to go with…yellow and grey have been a go to of mine for some time, and I love the addition of just the right shade of green. Hoping to get a new machine soon and would love to put it thru its paces on this selection.

  121. Puppies!!! So cute! I love the Ninth & Vine and the Barn Star patterns. This new line is very cool! Would love to win! Have a woodshop/garage shaped like a barn.

  122. Yellow is my favorite color and every quilt needs a little yellow! Heading into Spring Break in two hours. Hoping to have a lot of sew days!

  123. the puppies are adorable and the fabric is beautiful !! Happy happy spring to you !! I LOVE Moda !!

  124. Who can resist a puppy? I think such a person needs immediate emotional therapy with lots of love and attention. Hey, that’s most of us! Yes, I love yellow, especially these yellows mixed with grey and green. I’m hearing the 9th and Vine whispering my name, “Come to me. You need me.” Just four grandchildren quilts to do first. That’s all. Ha ha. At least I will have them quilted by someone else.

  125. Weekend plans are to sew and clean house, but just a bit for the latter one! I love yellow! One of my fav three colors. Nope, nowhere near a barn! Enjoyed the pictures of the puppies.

  126. Love the patterns and quilts. Great colors together! And those puppies! How cute are they!!!? Happy pictures all around.

  127. Love all the new patterns and fabric coming out. I’m usually not a yellow lover but Corey’s combo here is awesome. Love this collection and combined with barn quilt pattern, it would love fab in my house. Hopefully my luck is good today or sunday or whenever the winner is picked. Love ready about the puppies and going to check out the blog. Thanks

  128. This is the first time I’ve seen the line Pepper and Flax…great fabric and patterns! Love the puppy pics, too. Good luck to everyone!

  129. Love mustard yellow’s, have added them in several quilts. Plans for the weekend–sewing of course, and quilting with Church group, and a High School play. Love all the puppies, wish I could keep all of them. Have a great weekend.

  130. We are headed to Yosemite for our son’s last Spring break before graduating from UCLA. They have gotten some snow this week, so it should be beautiful.

  131. Love, love, love puppies, I have a 150 yr old barn on my property and yes to the yellow and gray. Love this blog also. Always informative.

  132. My quilting friends refer to me as “the Moda girl”… and that makes me happy!!! Just left Lancaster AQS show & wish you were there!

  133. I love the barn star pattern!!!! What a great baby quilt that’ll make. Plus one for my walls.

  134. Puppies are God’s way of keeping us grounded … otherwise why would the word DOG be GOD spelled backwards??

  135. I love yellow. I don’t have a barn. I’d really like four of those kits in order to make a four-block quilt. And a pretty border fabric to enlarge that to queen size so it fits my bed. Can you do that, Carrie? No? Ah, well. Including the backing and binding is a great bonus. I do have plenty of batting, Thanks to you and Moda for your generosity. Keep it coming.

  136. Great puppies – everybody needs one.Pepper and flax is my latest must-have. Who can resist yellow and grey?

  137. This barn quilt is yummy and it brings back fun memories of growing up with a with a big gray barn. Sometimes my sister and two brothers would have ‘corn battles’ stationing ourselves opposite each other on bales of hay stacked high on either side of a stairway that led down to the level cows could be stalled in inclement weather. My grandfather wasn’t too keen on our pastime in the barn adventures!.

  138. Wow, I love Corey Yoder’s fabrics and Quilts. I need to add yellow fabrics to my fabric supplies. We have had three snow storms in the last three weeks and also electric outage twice. Corey Yoder’s Dappled 9th & Vine Quilt and also her Barn Star Quilt are beautiful and seeing them, they remind me that Spring is coming soon!

  139. We used to have a barn – a big one. Now, we have a garage; not so pretty. I LOVE yellow, I love Corey Yoder’s fabrics and patterns, and I love Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co. I’m working on Cake Mix #2 Recipe with Corey’s Sundrops! It’s gonna be gorgeous. 🙂

    A barn star with yellow would be awesome!

  140. Love the new fabric and Stretch! Wish I were that imaginative to come up with such a cute idea.

  141. Dont have a barn but I have a chicken house with bright lemon yellow floors. Love yellow and I love mixing it with every other color out there.

  142. LOVE the yellow version of Barn Star! And yes…I would LOVE to win this kit….looks like a very spring quilt that could be done (including the quilting and binding) in a weekend! Reminds me of a daffodil. 🙂
    And who doesn’t LOVE puppies? Border Collies are my favorite…had a black & white one (brown eyes)…her name was Daisy. BEST. Dog. Ever. ! ! !

  143. I really miss my Belgian malinois as she was a constant sewing companion. I don’t miss the dog hair on everything we owned, though! Thanks for the cute doggie pics and I am loving the grey and yellow in modern things these days! Have a great weekend

  144. we’ll be celebrating National Puppy Day here even though our sweet girl is 13! She’ll always be our puppy!

  145. Not a big yellow fan, but those fabrics are beautiful. 9th & vine calling my name. Not a big doggie fan either, but just inherited a 9 year old Yorkie (his human mommy passed and he had no place to go) and he has stolen my heart. My 5 cats think he’s cute, too. Would love to win.

  146. Best. Post. Ever! Photos of cute puppies, beautiful fabric and inspiring patterns! Be still my heart.

  147. I love puppies, love the geometry of barn stars and love Corey’s colours in Pepper and Flax – big win all round!

  148. I’ve seen barn quilts in Iowa, and in Kalona, Iowa, there are quilt blocks in the sidewalks.

  149. I so love the yellow and gray with green in Pepper and Flax. Already sorta have a plan for it when I can get my hands on it. Corey’s patterns are becoming some of my favorites.

  150. I love Corey’s new line Pepper and Flax. Just yesterday I was thinking I needed some. Also, I enjoyed all the puppy’s in today’s post.

  151. Love, love, love Pepper & Flax. It is beautiful! Weekend plans? Helping my husband prep for his first job interview in 18 years after being laid off 3 months ago.

  152. I usually gravitate toward colorful fabric collections, but there is something about Pepper & Flax that I am drawn to. Would LOVE to have some before the next Moda Blockhead party gets under way!

  153. Yellow, yellow, is my favorite color! And with grey and black and white, it is the best! And the dogs are pretty cute, too!

  154. I like yellow – I don’t have a barn, but I grew up on farms and love old barns and would also love to win this kit!!!

  155. I like yellow. I don’t have a barn. Weekend plans include mowing the lawn for the first time and making banana bread with my son. I really like the puppy pictures– they all look like they were groomed and cleaned before their pictures were taken and are so curt!!!

  156. I love working with yellow and gold fabrics! These are bright and cheerful to brighten up the rainy cold days!

  157. Love seeing all the beautiful patterns. Just bought Oh Scrap book yesterday. Love the puppies too.

  158. I love yellow, have a shed with a barn quilt on it, and love Corey’s patterns and fabrics. I have used 3 of her fabric collections in quilts for the great-grand girls!

  159. I love the new pepper and flax line. I definitely will be making at least one of those quilts. Can’t wait!

  160. I absolutely adore yellow.. I have heard quilters say ‘every quilt needs a piece of yellow’

  161. My studio is painted a lovely shade of yellow – makes me smile every time I walk in! Corey Yoder’s Pepper and Flax pieces would look beautiful in my room!

  162. I have plenty of space for anything you’re moving out and especially a Corey Yoder giveaway!

  163. Would love to have these fabrics and patterns! LOVE the weiner dog quilt. Will have to make one for my daughter, whose dog was a long haired black and tan mini dachshund. Speaking of said daughter, she broke her foot Thursday night, so Hubby and I are going over to her house to clean up fallen branches from a big wind storm.

  164. I DO like yellow! It was the color of my bedroom when I was growing up. It’s such a happy color!

  165. Thank you for the puppy pix and info on the photographer! And of course all the fabric info. 🙂

  166. Looking forward to all the new patterns and fabric lines to see at Market. So much to do, so little time….

  167. Sounds like the creator of The Dogist has found the perfect career … let’s just assume he’s set aside time for quilting! Corey Yoder’s blog was one of the first I ever followed years ago when I discovered blogs – way before I got to cheer her on as a Moda designer!

  168. It is a toss up whether to like the dogist photographs or the quilts best. I have a soft spot for both. I especially like yellow labs and I like yellow quilts, too.

  169. I love yellow and grey together! This collection is beautiful! Love all the patterns… the Barn Quilt would make a perfect Wee Ones baby quilt!! (I make baby quilts for our local NICU.) Plans for the weekend? I’ve started my very first ever Orange Peel quilt and will be working on that this weekend! Have wanted to try it for a long time! Might also do some biz bookkeeping for taxes… ugg. I’d rather be sewing!! Grin.

  170. I love yellow and sadly I don’t have a barn. Love the Pepper and Flax fabric collection.

  171. Love the patterns, material and colors, they are so beautiful. Great fabrics. Love all the puppies, wish I could take them all home with me.

  172. I love all the quilts (especially 9th and Vine) and the fabrics that make up the quilts! How.lucky we are that the shelves have to be cleaned off occasionally for the new fabrics and that you wonderful Moda people give us a chance to win something wonderful.

  173. Market in 2 months! And new collections coming out! Love to see all the new but love, the older collections too. Yes, I love the yellow, black and gray combination. And I also love Corey, she is pretty amazing. Thanks.

  174. I can’t wait for this line to hit the shops! I’ve already got the barn star pattern downloaded!

  175. Yellow! I need to make something yellow! I would put this project at the top of my “to do” list!

  176. The puppies are adorable. I always say I don’t like yellow but the reality is that I really do as I am sitting in my den that I myself painted a nice soft yellow and I love it. The owner of my LQS recently told me that she thinks every quilt needs a little yellow as I was buying a yard of yellow fabric for a quilt. So the truth is I do like yellow and the fabrics you are giving away are beautiful.

  177. I’ve been waiting for that fabric to come in at my local quilt shop, but they decided not to get it. I will need to check around to see who has it because I really like it. We have lots of barn quilts here in Iowa, too.

  178. LOVE dogs! That Aussie pup sure is cute. Not too crazy about yellow. But like the dappled pattern.

  179. Ah, Carrie, those dog pictures did my heart good. We are a family with five dogs. Our eldest is very frail these days, so we are treated to some tender scenes, like the one today, when the youngest spent a good bit of time washing his face with kisses and then giving him playful nips on his ears–reminding him of the old days, I suspect, when he taught her how to play and be part of a group. How can they break your heart and fill it at the same time?

    Thanks for the smiles. Every day should be Puppy Day, Old Dog Day, and Dog Lover Day. At our house it is.

  180. Beautiful! The quilts, fabric, pattern, and pups. I have two beautiful Irish Red and White setters, Holly and Fenwick. Dogs and cats bring such joy to their people. I’m also a big fan of barns. I just love seeing quilts photographed against a barn

  181. Mmm. Cute dogs, great fabric and patterns. Lemongrass was extra appealing to me. Soft colors in a log cabin with a twist. Made my day.

  182. Loved seeing the puppy pictures…and the beautiful Quilts, of course. Here in Arizona, we are dealing with temperatures over 90 while a good part of the east coast is trying to find the ground under all that snow. Crazy winter!!

  183. Your posts always make me smile! And those new patterns & fabric from a Corey is scrumptious!

  184. I love the grey and black combination of Pepper and Flax. I have a thing for black pepper at the moment – I add loads of it to everything. I can see me adding loads of “Pepper and Flax” to my fabric collection too.

  185. Absolutely darling puppies! Love the quilts and the new patterns. I already have so many quilts to make and not enough time! Now you add more! Thanks for sharing these with us. K-

  186. Yellow is my one of my favorite colors, so much so, that I painted my house yellow. Have been waiting for the release of Pepper and Flax since I saw it displayed at Fall Market. Top of my list for must have fabric lines. Puppies! Have a 12 week old ShihTzu. Not getting much sewing done but getting lots of puppy kisses.

  187. I love Corey’s new fabric and her patterns. Barn Star went on my to do list the first time I saw it.

  188. Love the yellow and black collection. Love barns also – they remind me of the country and relaxing times – yay!

  189. I have always loved black in a quilt. It accentuate all other fabrics used in a quilt. But I have to say those new yellows are gorgeous. The combination is just great!

  190. Puppies and quilts – the two most precious things in our home!!! My husband would love to have as many puppies as I do quilts (even those in process)……life is full!!!!!

  191. Have 2 rescue doggies. My boy, Manny was a Texas rescue who someone hurt. Had surgery to remove broken hip bones. Doing good now

  192. I love “stretch”. clever name and clever quilt! I am not usually drawn to yellow and green, but I do like this fabric line. Thanks for a chance to win.
    We had two beloved terriers (a Cairn and a Westie) and after they passed we adopted two shelter dogs. One is wonderful, the other is more of a challenge.

  193. I really like the Coriander patterns and fabric. Will be looking for them in my local shop!

  194. I love the pink little dog fabric too. It’s adorable. And yes I like yellow. I’m drawn more to the cool colors, but a shade of yellow is my go to for contrast.

    1. I love Moda fabrics. And I love puppies, dogs, kitties and cats, and most things nature (forget snakes, yuck). And I love fabric! I hope to get to play with some of my fabric and stitcheries this weekend.

  195. No barn but what could be happier that yellow! I lost my beloved dog 2 weeks ago, Taffy, a rescued minature dachshund. 6 years of unconditional love.. happily we are adopting a shih tzu in may so it will truly be puppy time!

  196. Happy article, Carrie!! My puppy is Sieben (German for the number 7) and he is 6 months old–full of vim and vigor. A miniature Schnauzer, Sieben is the 7th pup of this breed we had the pleasure of adopting into our family. I’m so looking forward to several new Moda fabric lines and the patterns that accompany them. clara-chandler@att.net

  197. Oh my oh my!!! The colors are calling me & the patterns are perfect. Would be hard to put these on a to do list. They call now! Love the puppie pix, always give me a warm snuggly feeling. I have a “barn quilt” block on the side of my “barn”, even though it’s just a small (shed) where my bike, wagon & mower live.

  198. Love the fabrics, love the puppies, and would love to win the give away. Thanks for the opportunity!

  199. I LOVE the All Wrapped Up quilt. I used to have Dachshund and still love those dogs. Love that fabric collection, too – the name is perfect! Thanks for offering it as a give away.

  200. Love the one block quilt, and the other patterns are wonderful also. Yellow is a great color to quilt with.

  201. Puppies & quilts – wonderful combination. I really like this line of fabric. Actually, I like all of Corey’s lines but this one stands out.

  202. What fun! No barn and I like yellow but don’t usually use it. Pepper and Flax is gorgeous! Go Red Raiders!!!!

  203. The Pepper and Flax collection of fabric is just gorgeous. I plan on sewing the day away tomorrow. The never ending, ‘I want to make it’ list keeps growing!

  204. There’s so many wonderful lines of fabric coming out! It’s hard to decide which ones are on the can’t live without list.

  205. Never enough time to sew all my want to list. But that sure doesn’t stop me from buying more fabric.

  206. After taking a course on Friday and Saturday, I finally get to sit down to some BOM sewing on Sunday morning!

  207. The Pepper and Flax line looks lovely! Those colors would look great in our living room. And we have a big old Post and Beam barn, probably built in the early 1800’s. The most of the beams were re-purposed. Who knew people recycled back then?!!

  208. Love to see the vibrant colors in the fabric, especially if it is snowing and grey out my window !

  209. Love the dog photos! I have a pup named Rudy, short for Rudolph Holliday. We got him for Christmas, and my favorite baseball player, even though he was traded to the Mets, is Matt Holliday.
    We have barns and I would love to have a quilt block on each of them, but so far haven’t been able to make that happen.
    Yellow isn’t my favorite color but about every other week it’s my 5-year-old granddaughter’s favorite. It alternates with pink and purple.

  210. The puppies are darling! Really like the Barn Star quilt! Anxious to see the new things for Quilt Market!

  211. This quilt would be perfect… I am from Wisconsin, on the last week of three weeks in Arizona… I am missing my barns from my home town… cool quilt and great name…

  212. Don’t know which I like best, the fabric or the puppies. Since I can’t have a dog where I live I will buy3 yards of everything!!!
