Bar Harbor by Minick & Simpson for Moda Fabrics

Bar Harbor by Minick & Simpson has totally got it all. And you don't have to be a sailing enthusiast to enjoy it. While it has fresh nautical motifs in abundance, the lush roses, traditional prints and Americana colors & stars will appeal to all. I love the rich red, blues, and creams paired with black -- it creates that blend of classic & sophistication. Bar Harbor is available in yardage, precuts -- and don't miss out on the panels, flag buntings, and kits! I've got a few ideas for them myself!

Thanks, everyone at the Fat Quarter Shop, for asking us to blog about Bar Harbor!

We love this collection and are really looking forward to seeing what everyone does with it. This group is chock full of old-timey calicos and shirtings and some great, big Cottage chic florals. The reds, whites and blues (sound familiar?) are crisp and bright and just scream summer for us. It’s a much needed break right about now, isn’t it? Nothing like working with bright summer fabrics to warm up the chilly landscape.

Now, hold on to your hats – there is another color in this group – black. The added depth of the black really makes the reds and blues jump. It is our happiest collection, I think.


We have some summery patterns too – Cabin On The Shore, Stars and Bars, Nautical Flags, and Ship Ahoy. Let the spring breezes begin!
