I’ve loved Jo Morton’s fabric for years, how about you?

I was so excited to hear she was designing for Moda because her fabrics with Anodover are hard to find around here.

Now that she’s with Moda I’ll have a better chance of finding them and hopefully you will too.

Meet Gratitude, due in quilt shops in August.

A bit reminiscent of Civil War prints and colors.

Jo’s newest muted, small prints for Moda.

Lots of yummy pinks and browns.

There are other colors in the collection, but I didn’t order them!

I have to say I sure wish she had put some black in the collection.

Her blacks have been my favorites for years!

This is “Simplify”, of my quilt-as-you-go lap quilt patterns using  Jo’s black fabrics.

I still love those big gold stars.

And these are some of her blacks from my stash.

Yes, some are quite old, but I still love them.

They still reside in my stash, even passing the test of last week’s guild yard sale.

You’ll know I’ve lost my will to live when you see me put these in the “get rid of” pile!

I also used one of her blacks in every pattern in my “In Season” series.

I’m sure she’ll have a black in her next collection though, just for me!

How can I be sad about these, right?

And yes, I have a design all picked out for them with, you guessed it

Dresdens!

And now I MUST-GO-SEW!

Just keep sewing…
