Moda Bake Shop - Kristy's Dream

Today is the BIG Day -- Kristy's Dream is being featured on the Moda Bake Shop! With the fabric line from Moda, a reproduction study of William Morris's 19th Century prints, by Barbara Brackman.





An open note to the designer Barbara Brackman -- Your fabric line is beautiful and true to its historic origin! Having the layer cake gave me access to each and every print and of course I had a few favorites ..... but I could not resist playing with each piece. I only wish my photography skills could pick up the detail of each block.



Below ... Meet my oldest niece Kristy Lynn, the pattern's namesake -- Her dream came true when she became a Mom to four beautiful girls, Alleigh, Emma, Piper and McKinley. The first quilt -- used the gorgeous Moda fabric line "Boutique" by Chez Moi.



Thank you all for visiting today. I hope you take the time to visit the Moda Bake Shop and let me know what you think. Grab a cup of coffee, tea or glass of wine and then take a tour of Barbara Brackman's site -- and be ready for a trip back in time.

Congratulations. I adore that fabric. William Morris designs are timeless. Barbara Brackman has reinvented them in deep, rich hues. I love the purple/ violet. This is a must do project.
