Designer Tidbits: Me and My Sister Designs

Hello fellow Jolly Jabber-ians! It’s Barb and Mary from Me and My Sister Designs again. This year, we’re celebrating our 10th year with Moda Fabrics and Mary and I are excited to introduce our 27th collection, Bandana

This collection is full of our signature bright colors and whimsical prints.

It’s difficult for me to choose a favorite print from Bandana, so I think it would have to be these four. I just can’t make up my mind! A girl can have four favorites right?

We also have two new patterns that pair perfectly with our collection, Starlett and Dandelion

My favorite out of the two is Starlett. At first, I was crushing on the Dandelion pattern, but when Mary started sewing Starlett, I instantly fell in love! I usually gravitate towards simple repetitive patterns so this is a shock to me! Both patterns include instructions for the mini quilt versions as well.

Bandana is also perfect for our Makin’ It Cute templates too!

And… Bandana is also available in Fat Quarter Shop’s exclusive precut, Jolly Bar! This precut includes an exclusive Hopscotch pattern that you can only get when you purchase the Bandana Jolly Bar!

We’ve been busy at work with new fabric collections and patterns coming soon. Most of it must be kept secret for the time being but we couldn’t have any of it without all of you!

Thank you so much for all of the love the past 10 years and we hope you enjoy Bandana as much as we do.

  1. 'Laughter – the best medicine', is what I think of when I see Barb & Mary and when I sew with their fabric. Congratulations to both of you on 10 years!!

  2. I had some typos in my above comments, so here is the edited post. lol
    Barb and Mary, I love all your fabrics and wish I could buy them all in bigger amounts. Being on disability makes that not always possible for me. I made a baby quilt for my youngest grand daughter from my 2 Giggles charm packs. I still have 1 LOL charm pack and 2 Hubba Bubba charm packs. I would love to have some of your beautiful scrap discards. I would be willing to pay shipping. You both are so much fun the above photo brings a big smile to this old girls face.

    Happy 10th year anniversary! I especially love the paisley in Bandana.

  3. Love your Fabrics! ALL … Bandana
