Today I would like to tell you a little about a fun company that is new and amazing on the quilting scene. They are located just a few miles from my home. Their name is Modern Yardage. Over the last year, a few of the members of the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild have brought and shown off projects and some of this fabric in our guild meetings. I have been stewing about this for some time and finally decided I had to have some of this fabric. Above is one of a few images I will post here of the fabric I bought. This is from a line called Earth to Sky by Katie Schrader. When I saw it I decided I had to have it all, but sadly Tanya stopped me from buying it all. I did buy 10 fat quarters (I will be back for more later).
One of the neat things about Modern Yardage is they print (yes print) your fabric to order. Unlike traditional quilting fabrics which are produced in mass and shipped to your LQS, this fabric is printed to your order. You can read more about the how and why of it all on their site here. For me I just say amazing. I am a computer geek (oh and I quilt too) and the technology behind all of this is amazing. Modern Design has rounded up an amazing team of fabric designers to bring us this amazing fabric.
One of the first things you will notice looking at what showed up in my box is how differently my 10 fat quarters showed up. Modern Yardage prints their fabric 44 inches wide which is pretty standard, but their printer has a 58 inch fabric width. Hum what to do with all that spare space. As you can see in the images above that space is full of fun things. The side is filled with all kinds of fun treasures. My 10 fat quarters had a thank you note from modern yardage, a fabric care instructions, an about my designer image and a neat modern yardage logo section. The designer of this fabric had a fun little bunting cutout that is also included and my daughters favorite item it had a skirt pattern at the end.
While I sit here thinking about where I am going to hang up my little bunting, I am sure you are thinking HEY! You got all this new fabric what do I get?
