Simply Beautiful

 Simply Color is the beautiful new collection from V and Co. for Moda.  It is a huge collection (around 40 prints) that combines some fresh basics with vintage inspired prints.
 These pillowcase dresses were made from a fantastic dot border print.
 Check out this hexy quilt!  Pretty sure a pattern will be available for that...
This Iphone photo doesn't do justice to the Bloom quilt pattern that uses the Ombre prints in the collection.  Jelly rolls will be available with just the Ombres needed for the quilt.  An Ombre is essentially a solid fabric that gradually changes shades from selvage to selvage creating light to dark shades of the same color in one piece.  They will be available in 7 colors: Pink, Orange, Green, Aqua, Blue, Purple and of course, Gray!

Here is  Vanessa Christenson in her booth at Quilt Market and yes, she was as sweet and kind as she looks.  I am really looking forward to digging in to this collection, but we will all have to wait until it is released in October.  Unless you were lucky enough to snag some at sample spree. I wasn't brave enough to fight the crowds that gathered for that one!


  1. I love the bright colored hexies against the white!

  2. I haven't heard of this line before! What wonderful colours!
