Hi Ho Hi Ho, blog world here we go

I am jumping in to the blog world with both feet . I have so enjoyed reading about all the talented and creative people out there. Not that I am either of those but I do love making quilts. I have the best job in the world working for Moda Fabrics. I am a modamaniac and headed off to quilt market today but wanted to start my blog before I left.
One of my favorite things to do is to make quilts combining several of the different moda designers fabric collections into 1 quilt. I have just finished possibly one of my favorite quilts ever. It uses moda’s Honey Bun strips that are 1 1/2″ wide. The quilt has strips from Fig Tree’s group , Collections for A Cause by Howard Marcus, 3 sisters, Minick & Simpson, Barbara Brackman, Terry Thompson, and more. ( How is that for practicing adding links?) The quilt may possibly be featured in a future McCalls quilting issue.
See you soon!

    Hi Lissa! A warm welcome to the wonderful world of blogging. Have fun! We look forward to hearing all your news from Moda & seeing your lovely creations. Your quilt is gorgeous – I love how so many of the Moda fabrics blend seamlessly from one range to the next. So versatile. Have a wonderful time at market. Best wishes, Bloom (Australia).

    It’s only my opinion ~ and that’s not worth much ~ but I think you should do a giveaway where some lucky recipient gets all the Honey Buns necessary to make the absolutely gorgeous quilt you just “whipped together”.

    You could even give some to the person who suggested such a giveaway… 🙂

    And I love the “Honey Buns”… of course, now you’ll have everyone ask to see your buns… fondle your buns… ask to take home your buns…

    And congratulations on the blog! When Moda Lissa speaks, we’ll listen.

    Hi Lissa,
    Congrats on the new blog! Your blog name is great and so creative! I’m anxious to see all the things you will be blogging about – as you are probably the most plugged in person to my fav fabric company!!

  7. Whew – so good to be home, but was such great fun, you leave with mixed emotions. But seeing as you get so stimulated, you need to get home and get busy!! Was a wonderful market and display by all of Moda – thanks to Lissa, this is her baby – we are so lucky to be part of them.
    Day is done

  8. Hi Lissa,
    How fun!. . . you with a blog! I will check in often! (I also wanted to tell you that I absolutely loved your 'Aviary' quilt. . . on the side of the United Notions booth! I could see it from my booth & often wandered over. . . just to look closer. . . beautiful! xo, Bren

  9. First of all, welcome to blogland! I don’t have a blog, but I spend enormous amounts of time being inspired by them. I am embarrassed to say, however, I’ve never heard of Honey Buns, but will definitely look into them. (see, I have this problem with fabric addiction, so I try not to be tempted. LOL)

    The quilt is stunning. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Yeah, another Moda-maniac! Well, I am a Moda Freak (just look at my stash)!

    My friend and I just came back from Quilt Market and I love all of Moda’s new fabric lines! You should have seen us at Sample Spree! Oh Lordy! Plus I love all of the Moda Home stuff. Everything was so inspiring. You have a great job and I am so jealous!

    I love your quilt and what you did with the Honey Buns! I may have to make the same quilt with the Honey Buns that I bought at Sample Spree.

    I can’t wait to see more of you work! Please email me because I have a few questions to ask you.

    Oh I am just soooo excited you are joining us! What fun you’ll have and such a treat for us! Give your kids and husband a hug and tell them you can’t cook because you have to blog!

  12. Julie says:

    Wow, I’ve just come across your blog, I’ve been looking for inspiration. I aquired my first Sweet Roll/ Honey Bun last week at the Australian Quilt Market and am dying to make it up. I know its going to look gorgeous whatever I do. I’ve been thinking they will be perfect for log cabins. Your quilt looks fantastic.

  13. Sarah says:

    I just came across this quilt even tho I’ve been enjoying your posts since Christmas. Did this quilt end up being featured in McCall’s or any other magazine? Did you publish the pattern? You make it all look so easy ….I’m on a slow learning curve but love everything about quilting.

    Lissa, I found your blog after looking at "Bonnie Hunter's". I love this quilt. Was just wondering what size blocks that these were. This would be so pretty using some of my 1.5 inch scrap strips.
