Buy the Bolt

When I was about to start my log cabin quilt, I emailed Camille for a solid fabric recommendation to compliment her "Simple Abundance" line.  I do a lot of my fabric shopping online and I wasn't sure about buying, white, cream, ivory type colors without seeing it in person.  She recommended Moda Bella solids in Snow.  I bought two yards and loved it.  It has a softer, silkier feel compared to Kona. 

I ran out before I could finish my blocks... and bought some more.  I ran out again... and bought an entire bolt!  You see, I've got a lot of quilts to make.  Three yards here, two there.  Fifteen yards goes faster than you think.  I can't spend all my time stalking the UPS man.  I thought I was all set.  I told my husband I was all set.  And I was, until I started working on my whirlygig quilt.  I used white this time and ran out... so what did I do?  I bought a bolt!


  1. i just bought some of my first moda bella solids and totally agree that they are way softer than kona

  2. I am very conflicted between Kona and Moda's Bella Solids.
    Bella Solids are almost sheer and does not match Moda prints in density. Kona uses thicker threads in their solids but it seems to have fewer threads per inch and unravels easily.
