I love Moda! Moda gives me a ticket that no other fabric company offers. A few years ago while working on a Christmas quilt, I discovered that I did not have enough green to complete my project. I started hunting for a substitute, and soon discovered that many of the Moda lines complement each other. The shades are very similar, so adding a fabric from another Moda line will usually blend well enough to finish whatever project you are working on.
When I first saw the Schnibbles Madeline, I was taken with the red and taupe combination. But I did not have any French General fabric. After mulling over what to do, I decided that I would try to work this quilt in a red and beige combination. At Christmas time I was blessed by Kelly from Cotton Charm Quilts with a fat quarter bundle of Blessing fabric. Working with a Charm Pack that I had and the fabric Kelly sent to me, I also included bits of Wuthering Heights by Three Sisters, and a fabric I have had for years called Victoria Hills.
And so may I present to you "ma petite Madeline" -
