Modern Minis Fabric - Almost Here!!!

I'm so excited to share my 
next fabric collection with you
during the 
Riley Blake 
Spring Market Blog Tour

Bee in my Bonnet

is my latest fabric love ...
 and I can't wait 
till it gets here!

Modern Mini's is scheduled
to be released in 2-3 weeks…

Even though it's not available yet…
There were some exclusive
pre-cuts sold at sample spree
during spring quilt market.

There were even a few samples
 quickly sewn up
with the pre-yardage that arrived 
just days before market.

By the time fall market
comes in October…
I will have several new 
Modern Mini's 
patterns and samples displayed:)

for this collection!!!

Here are a few photos of 
Modern Mini's strike offs.

Strike offs are small pieces
of each print in the collection
 sent to me 
by the factory 
for approval on 
color and printing.

As usual…
I have included a Fat Quarter Panel 
to coordinate with this collection.

Each panel has 4 fat quarters
and there are 3 different panels
for a total of 
12 coordinating fat quarters.

By the way…
do you like my little
vintage TV's selvedge?

I had so much fun designing this print
for the collection.
Each square on the print measures
about 3 3/4" square.

I think it will be fun to sew 
pillows, curtains, bags 
or anything that 
uses a large scale print.

It's also perfect for 
cutting the squares apart
 and using them for projects 
that need a small scale print….
like mini quilts!!!

Here's the print during strike off approval.
I always make sure they match 
that I have created especially for my collections:)

They are my favorite happy colors…
and ensures that all of my collections
play together nicely:)

I have been playing 
with the pre-yardage pieces
that were sent to me...

And sewing up some of my
 Farm Girl blocks
for our 

I'm using Modern Mini's and 
making another 
Farm Girl Sampler
like the one I made for 
the cover of my book

This collection is darling! And yes, I absolutely LOVE the vintage TVs selvage!! I can't wait to get my hands on this! Beautiful job, as always, Lori.

Woo Hoo! I have just received a copy of your glorious book Farm Girl Vintage and I love it so much - the colours and the drawings and instructions are so beautiful - and of course the blocks are wonderful!!! I love that the book is spiral bound so that it can be opened to lay flat. I love this book and I had to tell you right away.
Your new fabric line Modern minis looks awesome and would be perfect to make the Farm Girl blocks with. I am so happy.
