To all who entered our contest,  
   We want to thank each and everyone of you for taking the time to read our blog and for entering the contest. We wish all of you could have won. Your comments and messages to us truly touched our hearts. One of our favorites was from Linzee in Iowa who told us about her uncle John who was in a nursing home suffering from Alzheimer's, the most response they had seen from him in quite awhile was when she presented him with a Holly Taylor quilt. It gives us pleasure to know how much you like the things we design, and the encouragement to keep trying to give you something new and different.
    Moda has many designers and we all try to stay in our realm so there are not duplicates. Lynn and I always say we are in the "Northwoods Box" and we have to stay within that box. It also makes it difficult sometimes to stay fresh and new. But we try.
    Stay tuned, we have several fun contests and give aways planned for the future when our new lines are being released.

Winners Of the fat quarter bundles and This & That Christmas Spirit Book:   
  Congratulations  Debbie I and Sher

We also sent sample packs of our new spring line being introduced at Houston Quilt Market called "Enchanted Pond" due in shops Feb. 2013 to the following:
Martha, Bonnie N., Candace, Johanna, Liz, and Beach Quilter, Thank you all   Eileen & Lynn

Trails End Batiks

We will have a new line of batiks that will be in the stores this month. This quilt was made by Doug Leko  of Antler Quilt Design. It is called Woodland Stream AQDO222. I wish you could see it in person, it is so beautiful. Sorry for my pictures, I am probably the most amateur photographer I know.

  We have an elementary school two blocks away. I watched as the kids headed down the street yesterday and couldn't help but wonder how the summer could go so fast and the winters be so long here in Minnesota. It doesn't seem right.
We have been away from our blog this summer. I had a family crisis with a sick Granddaughter and then a little grandson visiting for a month, so to say the least it has been busy. My Granddaughter is now doing better and things are somewhat back to normal. We have still been working like little beavers getting a spring line ready to preview at market called "Enchanted Pond", a flannel line for next winter called " Boundary Waters" and a Christmas line ready for 2013 titled " "Holiday in the Pines".
    I will try to stay busy keeping you updated on what we are doing and all the new lines we have coming out.
To celebrate our new Christmas line "Christmas Spirit" that is out in the stores now, We are starting a contest next Monday Sept. 10th. We will be giving away 2 fat quarter bundles accompanied with the new book from This & That Pattern Co. You will be ready to start your projects.
