Spongecake and pizza


I decided to pick up some of the new lines of Moda last week. I have been stalking Green Fairy Quilts site for weeks and I finally bought some.  L'Amour, Love is in the Air, and Plume.  I had unpacked them and sort of abandoned them on my cutting table. My 2 year old brought her step stool out and climbed up to play. 
She affectionately referred to the jelly rolls as her 'sponge cakes' and the turnovers as 'pizza'. It was pretty funny listening to her.

I had to snap some pictures of her carefully looking through the Plume "spongecake".  She has always been interested in my fabric...but she's never named it before. I like her spongecake idea and maybe Moda is listening and the next pre-cut will be a 'spongecake'...like fat 1/8th size or something??

I have to tell you, I'm so jealous that your daughter is so gently curious. Mine got into my charm packs last night and my living room looks like a very colorful tornado hit it. She's beautiful and I can't wait to see what you do with the fabric!

Aaaah, what a wonderful picture... Isn't it lovely when you catch a moment like that? Spongecake sounds great to me! As do fat 1/8th.. you never know whether moda is listening!

Vickie, She is way too cute looking through your fabric! Just beautiful! Can't wait to see what you both will do with the Sponge Cake.

Love it! She is too cute. Amelia spent some time with my last night, sewing. As long as I'm in the room with her, she can sew on my machine. Daring, I know. But she did pretty good! Nothing is straight but she's pretty proud of herself and that's all I care about.

A quilter in training and who can resist a jelly roll - not me, I love them.

Too cute!! I like the spongecake idea though!!!!! Fat 1/8ths would be an awesome little moda treat!

Oh how cute! Looks like you have a future quilter there. My daughter wasn't interested in sewing, but I have a granddaughter who asked me to teach her!!

She is adorable! And so gentle! My son likes to rearrange all of my fabric by placing it all a minimum of ten feet from it's original place.

No matter what it's called, it's all delicious. It sounds like your DD is taking a keen interest there, what a cutie.
