A Merry Moda Christmas!

If you saw the post earlier in the week of the pile of projects I have been working on. Well the wait is over and the surprise is here at Corn Wagon Quilt Shop in the Moda Bakeshop. I've been changing things around just in time for the big holiday rush next Friday. I'm so excited to share some of the new things I've created from this wonderful line, Rouenneries by French General. I fell in love with this line when the Moda Rep showed it to us. I knew I needed the quilt kit right then, mine was on order that day. It just match's my living room, so it has a nice place to live after the holidays. Lucky me! I had so much fun creating and decorating this little area of the shop. I guess you could call it mine. Look for my upcoming displays throughout the new year of all the new Moda lines. We are still trying to get the Moda Bakeshop Club off the ground, it will be held the third Saturday of the month. More details later, but for now take a look at the bakeshop display. (Picture overload, but I didn't want you to miss any of the details)! Here's what you see when you walk through the doors of the shop. Merry Christmas!
And the stockings were hung on the shelf with care! The quilt is one of my favorites I've made all year. Can't wait to display it at home now.

The tablerunner, hot pad and oven mitt (pictured below) are the projects for the Moda Bakeshop Club for December. Everything is made from one charm pack and a little bit of yardage. These would make great Christmas gifts. We have kits ready for these, come sign up and make someone "SEW" happy this holiday!
Piece of cake anyone? Hands off, just for decorating purposes only! I used things around the shop to "BAKE" it.

I found rolls of twill tape in 3 different sizes for the layer effect, a skein of embroidery floss for the leaves and a ball of perle cotton for the rosebud. Pretty clever and cute if I do say so myself! What do you think?

I put all the kits in bakery boxes for the extra cutness, you know me and cute! Everything has to be just right.

These are the same stockings I did with my Simply Sewing ladies. They take on a whole new look in this style of fabrics and trims. I have made this into a pattern and I put them together today. They will be for sale at the shop starting Monday. This is a great stocking pattern and very easy too.


A shot of the bolts all lined up, I can't believe how fast this line is selling. Good news though, Moda is running it again and they will be shipping out again in December. Hooray!
I collect Santa's and it's been several years since I've made one. But this pattern came in and I might just have to start again. Something different for a change rather than a quilt, apron or bag. Yup, I think I'm ready to break out Kira's Santa that I started for her oh should we say about 6 years ago! You don't have unfinished projects that old do you?
Isn't this a cute Christmas shopping bag. I want to take it shopping, but I can't it's on display. Maybe I can sneak it out of the shop for a day or two! They won't even know it's missing! Ha, ha!The pom pom fringe just adds to it doesn't it? The Santa pin was a Christmas gift from a friend last year, but it would also look very cute with a large button.

Close up of apron and wreath, again I used balls of perle cotton for the berries on the wreath. I hope nobody needs any of these colors because I took them all out of inventory! It's all about cute at Christmas time.

Merry Christmas from the Corn Wagon Moda Bakeshop, stop in a see me during the holiday season. I'd love to help you with all your sewing and quilting needs for all those holiday projects
your working on. For now, Happy Sewing from Shannon
