Fat Quarter Star Quiltalong and a Question.

Block 1

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is the second fairly new line of Moda fabric that I've used in the last couple of months.  It seems to be thinner than the older collections, less vibrant, and stiffer.  Has anyone else noticed this, or is it my imagination.

Thanks!

Lovely block Billie! Yes, I agree with you - the feel and finish is different. And they ravel more!

That is so pretty! Interesting about the fabric, I wonder what's going on?

You might not believe this but ever since my daughter's May wedding, I have not even sewn one thing. How this has happened I'll never know. But... the quality of everything has either been thinned, shrunk, or depleted since the economy got so bad. Rats! Got your name in the hat!!Thanks for commenting on my GIVEAWAY post! :)

Beautiful block, Billie. I haven't bought fabric in so long, I can't comment on recent Moda. I did make a kit last year from a Moda line bought years ago and I do remember that while it felt so smooth and soft, and the colors were great, that it raveled more than I expected.

Beautiful block! I remember seeing it and your neat fabric on flicker. I think this will be a fun Quilt Along!
