It's A Hoot!

New Fabrics for our "happy" department -- "It's a Hoot" by MoMo for Moda Fabrics. You'll love the colors and fun designs in this group.

As a child growing up in Japan, MoMo often found herself retreating into the caverns of her imagination. It was only natural for this talented young artist to eventually grace the world of graphic design. As she set out to redecorate the world with her patterns, colorful fantasies and childhood musings spilled out in a Technicolor landscape filled with imaginary places and graphic interpretations of the world in her head. MoMo’s designs are bold and colorful with a flare for the surreal, her feet firmly planted on the ground and her head in the clouds.

We wonder what you'll create with these prints -- quilt, bag, clothing, something to redecorate your world?
