Little Miss Sunshine

Little Miss Sunshine fabric by Vanessa Goertzen of Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics. Ships to shops April 2016.
She finds bliss in the beauty of a quiet mountain meadow dotted with daises. It's the perfect day for a picnic, so she brings a basket of homemade bread, peach jam, and wild strawberries. She spreads out a quilt beneath her favorite moss-covered tree and soaks in the sunbeams that break through the leafy canopy above.
Picnic Basket
Now life isn't always a picnic--there are moments when the sun disappears behind the clouds and we are left to look for our own rays of sunshine. So many of us find joy in sewing pretty things like quilts, dresses, and decorations for our homes. It revives us like the warmth from the real sun. 
Little Miss Sunshine is a collection full of cheer and I hope it will bring all those images of happy times into your studio.

Little Miss Sunshine is now showing at International Quilt Market in Houston and will ship to stores April 2016. 
I've also handpicked a "Sunshine" themed thread box collection for Aurifil. It contains 12 spools (50 weight thread) to coordinate perfectly with the Little Miss Sunshine fabric, but also includes a few of my favorite neutrals. (The taupe 5011 is a perfect match to Moda's Crossweave in Sand 12119 51.)

This method facilitates trading of a wide variety of assets, providing the traders with high rewards in lesser time and lower risk when compared with other trading options. This framework is most suited to investors who are new in the market and are unfamiliar with trading environments.

    Creating a compost heap is an easy and clever way of recycling rubbish. A compost heap is good for the environment and will save you time and money. Making one is easy and will last you for years.

  20. Hi Vanessa, thank you so much for putting together this blog. Your fabric is beautiful, tutorials are incredible, and your patterns are very inspirational. Like you, I have very young kids, so I quilt and get creative as soon as they are in bed! I'm an American living in Singapore at the moment, and I love that websites like FQS will ship me your fabric across the world. It's provided me with an outlet to stay busy while wishing I could be with family back home. Can't wait to create something with your Little Miss Sunshine line. Thanks again, and I look forward to seeing what else you come up with in the near future! ~Sarah in Singapore
