Elinores Endeavor by Betsy Chutchian for Moda Fabrics

With such an emphasis on contemporary quilting, modern quilting, batiks, panels and digital prints, the traditional quilter might be feeling a little left out.

This traditional line from Moda starts with a large floral and builds a beautiful collection around it with plaids, florals, and geometrics.

This group could work into a great quilt with just about any traditional piecing pattern.

Don’t overlook these great pre-cuts from this line. There are 2 1/2″ strip sets, 5″ squares and 10 ” squares.

Wide Fabrics make great quilts!

I don’t want to even call some of these great fabrics backing fabric because they would love to be on the front of the quilt.

Enjoy our selection of front runners from the backing group!

Little Darlings from P & B Fabrics

The name “Little Darlings” is so appropriate for this collection. Each of these animals has a precious expression and a head full of flowers. The faces are so appealing. The panel shows all the animals and then we have coordinates to go with it.

Each panel has 12 animal blocks. The size of each block is approximately 8″ x 10″ but there is plenty of background if you need to cut larger.

Hungry Animals by J. Wecker-Fricsh

This group of fabrics is one of our all-time favorites. We have always enjoyed the artwork of Janet Wecker-Frisch, but none more than her Hungry Animals. This line of fabric was in print at least four years ago and we thought it was gone for ever. We were delighted to see that it was reprinted.

The panel is almost like an “I Spy” block. Each block represents a letter and the artwork depicts a darling scene that features items beginning with the selected letter. You can spend many hours looking at the blocks to recognize all the items.

The tossed animals makes a great coordinate to the panel and booklet.

This coordinate could even stand on its own for a focus fabric, border or backing.

If you want to see any of the images larger, just click on them and you will be able to see a larger version.

When you follow the directions on this panel you will have a soft book to be shared with the kids in your life . It’s fun to search the artwork for the items beginning with the chosen letters.

Each of the pages has some great hints as to what you will find in the block.

It’s a quick sew and can be done easily in less than two hours.

The Hungry Animal panel is approximately 36″ x 42″ and makes a great wall hanging just by stretching it on foam core board. If you would rather have a quilt, just add a couple of borders and the quilt is finished.

The fun is in studying each of the blocks to find all the words that begin with the block letter.

J. Wecker-Frisch is the master at creating an appealing design using items that all begin with the same letter.

Can you tell we love this panel, booklet and coordinate? If you missed it the first time this collection was printed, you want to be sure and get a panel and a book so you can sock it away for the next time you need that special gift.
