Moda! Moda! Moda!

My Moda precuts are finally here! I've been waiting anxiously to start making this Zig Ziag skirt by the Polkadot chair for my little cousins for Xmas! Normally I don't think I would go for this Sherbet Pips collection (because of the colors. I don't really like red and I prefer more colorful packs) but after seeing the skirt it was all I could think about! :))

Sherbet Pips by Aneela Hoey for Moda

But then I couldn't find everything I needed for the skirt in one store and I didn't want to spend too much time searching (it's Xmas veerrryyyy soon!) so I went for something very similar. "A walk in the woods" Aneela Hoey's newest collection!

Made in Japan. I never knew that! 
This collection does actually look like those cute Japanese fabrics.
I was sorting the squares by colors to make 2 Zig Zag skirts.

I'm in love!!!!

Where do you by your Moda? Sometimes I envy American ladies.. they can get Moda for so cheap! It doubles its' price when reaches the Down Under. In the States a Moda charm pack is about 8-9$! Here? Normally 15$. 

My two favourite websites for Moda in Australia are:
1. Fabric Patch: they have the biggest range of Moda. And I love how they have a photo of all fabrics included in a charm pack or jelly roll or anything. So you know what you will get and you won't have to google up the collection to see what's in it (like what I had to do with some other stores!)
2. Want it, Need it, Quilt it: lowest prices!. You can find a charm pack for as low as 8$ ! Tempting? ;) Well, I was definitely tempted :))

And for the times when I'm not in a hurry I buy from the States and wait for about a month. With the shipping costs it's not much cheaper but there's more to choose from.
