Oh Sew Sweet Moda Hop



Welcome to my day on the Moda Blog Hop and Welcome to my neck of the woods.  If you are new to my blog, I am Bonnie Olaveson, my pattern company is Cotton Way and I design fabric for Moda with my daughter Camille. I live here in Rigby, Idaho most of the time, but Camille told you all about Rigby on Friday, so I thought I would take you just an hour north to my other hometown, Island Park, Idaho where I love to spend every minute I can.  It is one of the most beautiful places on earth, so I just had to share it with you.  If you are wondering where it is located, it is about 30 minutes south of the west entrance to Yellowstone Park.


As you can see from the sign, Island Park has the longest Main Street in America.  It is 35 miles long and very scenic.

 






If you look really close, you can see the moose in the water on the left hand side.





In the summer we spend as much time as we can boating on the lake...


...tubing


and water skiing.




 We like to sunbath,

 
    


play on the beach

 
 
and bike.




In Island Park there is some of the best fishing in the world in the summer,

 
and snowmobiling in the winter.


This is Island Park City Hall.


The General Store


and bank.


There is even a spa, although I have never been there.


And yes, everything is made of logs.


There are outdoor craft fairs


and antique shows...


...and unique places to eat. This log cabin restaurant is called Boondocks. 


We love our little cabin by the lake, which is usually pretty quiet and peaceful...




...but even better when it's crazy and everyone is there. 


 
We are all about family. 




                       One of my sweet friends gave me this sign for our cabin.
I love it so much, thanks Nancy!


 Sometimes, when it's not so crazy at the cabin, I even find a little time to sew.


 
Speaking of sewing, our new fabric collection Marmalade will be arriving in stores in October.





                  To celebrate it's arrival, I will have more new patterns using Marmalade in October, 
                                                                             but for now,
                                   I have one pattern ready just for all of you following the Moda Hop.





  
For a limited time you can get the PDF download for just $5.00. Check it out here

The pattern includes 3 different Table Toppers that are so fast and easy to make.  With just one big block, you can piece them in 2 hours or less.  No kidding, they really are that easy.  These are great for a beginner quilter and would also make great baby quilts.  They are 41" x 41".  

The other NEW patterns will be available in a few weeks.  

Oh, and you can also get the pattern for our free Marmalade project here.




Moda was very generous and so of course I have some Marmalade to give a way as well. Make a comment to enter and check back on Saturday, Sept. 15 to see if you are a winner!



Stop by Lucie Summers hometown today too and
    
Kansas Troubles, Malka Dubrawsky, and Laundry basket tomorrow.


Have a sweet day!
Bonnie

  137. Oh Marmalade is just wonderful! I can't wait for it to come out. It reminds me of all those times our family would get together at Grandma's house and the house would be FULL of family and she would be busy in the kitchen.

  169. What a wondeful description and pictures of your hometown. I love your moose. They are really a beautiful animal. My name is Sandi and I live in the foothills called Sonora. It is now becoming a big city. We never had stoplights before. Growing up in Sonora, we used to have an uptown and dowtown theater. You could drive around a foundtain that was in the center of a circle that you had to drive around. We used to have a drivein called A and W rootbeer. Everything is now gone and we are getting more stoplights and more by-passes. More people keep coming to Sonora to get away from the bay area or to retire. It has been really been quite interesting to learn about all of the designers. Thank you for giving all of us a chance to win that fabric.
