Home a la mode opened its doors on October 2, 2015…. We have gone through many changes in the last year and a half. I would just like to take the time to thank all our wonderful customers for making our store AWESOME!!!!!! We have always had an online store….. but having a storefront for our customers to come in and actually feel and touch all the great Moda fabrics has been a blast.. We will continue to serve our customers with the best customer service, we believe in treating our customers the way we would want to be treated. If you have not had a chance to stop on by and see us…please do!!!! We are open Tuesday thru Saturday 9 am to 5 pm. We have classes most Mondays and of course we travel to all the Quilt Shows!!! We are located in downtown Denison at 611 W Main Street. We are a 2 story pale yellow brick house. Lots of history to our building!!!!! Stop on by and have some coffee and say HI, we would love to meet you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We are growing by leaps and bounds. We have rearranged our shop to accommodate many new items… We have been in Beautiful downtown Denison for about 8 months and we have seen many changes…. All Good!!
Our Vintage kitchen items are just like Grandma’s. We carry everything from napkins, towels, tablecloths and many more. We have a wide variety of soaps, scrubs, lotions and lip balms as well.
Our leather and up-cycled military tarps and tents are a huge hit. We all have that one person that is hard to buy for and seems to have everything. Whether it a man or woman I am sure we have something to meet every ones needs.
Do you have a quilter in the family or a good friend? What better than making a quilters gift basket as a gift. We have everything a quilter would dream of on our notions wall.
We carry anything and everything Moda, we have Moda Candies, Charm Packs, Honeybuns, Jellyrolls, Layer Cakes and more…..Come check out the feel and quality of our Moda fabrics…We also have bolts of fabric cottons, flannels, chenille just to name a few.
Karen just came back from Arkansas and has many more items to add to our store. Stay tuned.
I have been inspired by a customer, friend and now co-worker… This lady has been truly a push, shove and motivator of Home a la mode, lately… She has talked me into getting on the stick and updating many things. It’s like playing Solitar… you are just trying to get to the finish… But the person standing over your shoulder is looking for what you are missing… So… Sue has been looking over my shoulder and pushing me to click on things that I have neglected for a while… like the BLOG for ONE… So here goes…

Polka Dots & Paisleys are here! Frivols #2 by Moda is in stock and ready for immediate shipment.Faithful. From the beginning, we wanted this quilt to feature the signature cream, red and blue color palette of Polly Minick & Laurie Simpson. We also wanted it to reflect Laurie’s style of quilt – a lot of pieces and very scrappy.
The name of the quilt comes from Polly and Laurie’s family – if you didn’t know, they’re sisters. Polly’s oldest son, Jim Minick, served in the Marine Corps and retired as a Colonel. Semper Fi – semper fidelis – always faithful. It just seemed right. (Jim now the Director of Football Operations for the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Go Blue!)
The squares included in the kit are enough to make the Faithful quilt top – no additional fabric is required except for the binding and backing. Faithful measures 26″ x 26″.
Several fabrics are duplicated in the Frivol roll, as many as three squares of a few of the background fabrics are included. That allowed us to keep the limited color palette while still allowing the quilt to be made with just the 7″ x 7″ squares.
This is ONE of 12 Frivols…
#1 and #2 are now available… Get yours now… VERY Limited quantities. $44.99 per kit – buy 1 or buy all 12 collectors sets.
