Ready for playtime with Angela Yosten and Flats!

So playful!  Angela Yosten is bringing back the fun and imagination of paper dolls with her new fabric collection Flats from Moda Fabrics  and coordinating thread collection from Aurifil.  Due for release in May, the bright colors and modern designs make it perfect for any project for the young or the young at heart!





It is not surprising that Angela, a busy wife and mother, is so talented with color and design.

“Since I was young, I was influenced by many talented people. Growing up I was raised in both a technical and creative atmosphere.While my mother taught me how to sew and encouraged all things arts and crafts-related, my father owned a computer business and taught me how to be independent and figure things out on my own.  My grandmothers and greats were also a constant influence with their own special talents of knitting, sewing, quilting and art.  I have always enjoyed  drawing, painting and designing, but it was not until I had my own children that inspired me to find my way back into the sewing room to discover my own style

On the technical side, I work full-time as a web developer for Moda Fabrics. On the creative side, I have my own design company as an outlet to be able to share my designs through books, patterns, and tutorials.”

Angela is also the author of Stop. Go. Quilt. Sew! published by Stash Books and a contributor to Modern BlocksFresh Fabric Treats, and Sweet Celebrations with the Moda Bake Shop Chefs.


Aurifil is presenting two thread collections to accompany her fabric. Each collection has 12 spools of the finest cotton.

  11. I loved playing all of the outdoor games, jumprope, roller skating, etc. But some of my favorites were when my sister and I built a fort out of sheets on our front porch and the games we played late at night when we went to bed! We had twin beds in our room and we used to play that we were on a raft that got split, we would hold hands until we “floated” to far apart-then one of us would swim to the other “raft” were we would try to survive together! LOL

  12. When the weather permitted we played an invented game called handy over during the day and ditch when the sun went down. Indoors we played cards.

Great giveaway!

  16. My favorite game was one we (my twin sister, little brother, and 2 favorite cousins) made up when we were out our grandpa’s house – The Pirate Game. Our grandpa’s house had 3 outside porches which became our pirate ships. Imaginations we had!

  17. Mine was hide and seek. But there were times when I’d end up being so bored of having to quietly stay put in one place that I would deliberately give my position away :-/

  22. When the cousins would get together we would play “red rover”. But when home and hanging out with the neighbors we always made time to play canasta when it was too hot to be outside and running.

  23. We played Hide and Seek, and now my granddaughter is wanting to play all the time.
    I guess we never really grow up

  24. What’s wonderful giveaway! It would be wonderful to have the perfect thread to se with the gorgeous fabric! My favorite game was marbles on the school playground…in the days when school grounds were not paved.

  25. When I was a kid my favorite game was hide and seek, but I really loved it when we went to my grandparents house in Kentucky and played the game. I would go to the tobacco barn and climb all the way to the top of the barn and hide between the tobacco stalks that were hanging there. No one could see me and I won. I would love to win this collection. Good luck eveyone.

  29. My favorite game was Canasta but my favorite pastime was reading.During my “second childhood” I learned to quilt but I still love playing Canasta and reading.

  30. I loved playing with my baby dolls and dressing them up in the new clothes my mother made for my Christmas presents. I had four brothers and if I played with them it was army or cowboys and Indians. That never worked out in my favor. LOL

  31. My favorite outdoor games were hop scotch, hide and seek and double dutch jump rope. Indoors was playing rummy with my mom and sister. For some reason the game just isn’t the same without mom.

  32. Childhood memories of jacks, paper dolls, checkers, monopoly and cribbage. It is so much fun to create quilts for young people with eye catching colors and patterns that can cretan a conversation either with parents or grandparents

  33. I would have to say building forts out of sofa cushions and blankets was a favorite activity of mine 🙂

  34. I read and sewed as a kid, but when mom threw us out of the house, we would play red rover and hide and seek, if not get on our bikes and ride to the library and a treat at the ice cream shop that was not too far away!

  35. We lived at the end of the street with a street light in front of our house which was the perfect “base” for tag – we would play for hours with plenty of hiding spots and space to run. We also had the perfect yard as our lawn and the neighbors lawn made for a big area for us to play all kinds of games – red rover, dodge ball, etc.

  36. I used to play “The Price Is Right” with my friends at our porch, which had a chicken wire netting (I think) on it to which I attached the cardboard letters by using clothespins. We liked to build tents, play dodge ball, and roller skate with those clamp-on skates! trilliumcreates AT gmail DOT com

  37. I think the favorite game was pick up baseball on a corner lot. The bad part was that we didn’t learn until we were in Jr High not to throw the bat after a hit. Very few of us walked away from that childhood game without a scar above our eye….I’m still filling in my eyebrow where my scar sits

  38. What a wonderful giveaway! My favourite childhood game was playing Gin with my dad.

    chocolatechippers at gmail dot com

  42. I would play with the neighborhood kids in an old school bus that one of the parents bought and put on the back of their property. We had so much fun pretending all different kind of situations. One neighbor had chickens so we were given some of the “cracked” eggs and pretended to be cooking all kinds of things.

  43. I loved building forts in the forest with my brothers. Building would keep us busy and out of mom” hair. Starting point for me becoming a passionate homemaker.

  46. Hard to say what was a favorite since there were so many fun things to do! Ball with the neighbor kids, bike riding with my sister & brothers or cards with grandma when she visited. Then there’s always the times I was allowed to use mom’s sewing machine to make doll clothes! (and later clothes for me) Rules were simple–be careful around the needle, ask for help when needed and clean up your mess when done.

  47. My Favorite childhood game had to be playing imagine with my friends. Where we would run around imagining we where different people or on different planets or in our favorite cartoon shows. I loved being able to do that with my friends and not be the damsel in distress but the knight going to slay what ever evil dooer we imagined.

My favorite childhood game was what we liked to call “Queenie Rides”. 2 Children would make a type of chair by linking their arms and then a third would sit on their arms and be carried around the room while waving. Sounds boring but it often turned into a rolling pile of kids that kept dropping someone because they were laughing so hard. Good Memories 🙂

    I haven’t thought about this for a long time ~ thanks for the memory!

  91. We had a pony that was broke to pull a cart, Applecart was difficult to catch. Our favorite game was hiding the rope and luring him in. First one to catch him got to drive first. It sure pays to sneek treats to the ornery one! I’m pretty good at harnessing up and driving!

But after reading some of the older games, I remember playing “Button, Button” at my Grandmother’s house. I don’t know if we actually played it correctly.

  140. My brother and I used to play a game we called make me laugh. It’s pretty self explanatory. We had to make each other laugh. To this day, no one cracks me up quite like my brother.

  141. tag football (I know, not a typical girl game) with the brothers.
    this fabric is great. . . Thanks for the giveaway opportunity~

  142. My favorite outdoor game was Hode & Seek. Favorite board game was Monopoly. My favorite thread is Aurifil :-)). Thanks for the giveaway .

  143. We played lots of games as a family. Cards, board games, riddles, out door games … lots. We turned almost everything into a game. Risk, Rack-o, Stock Ticker, Hearts, War, Snap, Old Maid, Memory were all favourites.

  144. I loved kick the can in the summer time. It was always fun with all the kids in the neighborhood! Thank you for sharing our beautiful fabrics and threads!

  145. I think my favourite childhood game was “elastics”, it was played a lot in primary schools in NZ in the ’70’s and was the only physical game I was good at. I could even do “necksies” which was when the big long loop of elastic was held at neck height (and width) and you had to jump high enough to get over one side, to the middle then over the other side; great fun!

  146. Growing up, I lived in a huge development that bordered a wooded area and a lake. And there were tons of kids. Playing outside was mandatory. Kickball; red light, green light; softball; street hockey; ring-a-lareo; and a complicated game of hide-and-seek that was done by teams. My all-time favorite was the team play of hide-and seek! What lovely memories!

  147. My favorite games were the ones we played outdoors: Mr. Wolf, Skipping, Double Dutch, Marbles, Frozen Tag, Statue Museum, Kick the Can, Hide and Seek…. oh my gosh… there were a bunch more… sigh… what great memories 🙂

  148. I loved building forts out of hay or sticks in the woods. My favorite board game was Monopoly and my grandma and I would play for hours. Wonderful giveaway!

  149. Whoohoo!.. my absolute fave game was hide n seek. The reason why is we lived in a trailer park and we would have so many kids playing. We’d play after dark……back when kids would stay out till the street lights came on. 🙂

  150. My sister and I got a game for Christmas one year, Pig Pong. It was a game of volleyball/ping pong that had a light “ball” and pigs that you squeezed to blow the ball over the net. I have many memories playing that game–with my cat curiously watching.

  151. When I was a child in the 60’s, we played tons of games out in the front yard of our house and all the houses of the neighbors. It was not unusual to have 8 or 10 kids playing until our moms called us in to dinner. Hide n seek was a common game, along with all kinds of tag games (freeze tag, cartoon tag), but my favorite was called Trails of 49.

  152. I loved playing “Hide ‘n’ Seek” out at the lake where it was soooo dark at night. It’s a miracle that we didn’t break ourselves falling over and running into things! In our teen years, we played cards nearly every night – it didn’t matter what we were playing as long as the bunch of us were together hanging out.

  153. My brother and I were into all kinds of board games. Monopoly with my Dad if we were a glutton for punishment, but I also liked “Mousetrap”. Thanks for the giveaway! FLATS looks like a great collection!

  154. It’s amazing how a question like that can bring back so many memories. We made up a game using marbles, a hula hoop, and a broom. My girlfriend and I are in our mid 50’s and we still talk about how much fun we had. It’s amazing what you can think of without the use of technology.

  155. Red Rover was one of my favorite games at school. When I was a child we played outside all of the time and made of lots of games. Love the fabric!!!

  156. I loved playing Chutes and Ladders indoors and hide and seek outside. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway opportunity. The fabric, the thread, and the fun packaging are a bundle of sewing joy!

  158. Very nice fabric giveaway, thank you. My favorite childhood past time was jumping rope. I never got tired.

  159. I enjoyed playing hide-n-go-seek outdoors and my Dad taught me how to play gin rummy card game, I felt like such a grown-up. Beautiful fabric and thread! Thanks for the giveaway. Hartwicks4 (at) metrocast (dot) net

  160. My favorite game was Four Square out front of our house. Whenever the family gets together we love having a game I’ve it ….not sure how much longer wel’ll be able to since some of us are in our 60’s now!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  161. We played lots and lots of kick the can. All the neighborhood kids would gather and play til the sun went down. We also played lots of Fish. Thanks.

  162. We made up an outdoor game when we were young and named it ‘Aha! Spies!’. It consisted of running from one pre-arranged base to another after aha! Spies! was called out. If you were tagged, you were it and everyone started over at base one. Man those days were the best!

  163. My favorite childhood game was Hop Scotch! Oh, and Clue.. Oh and stoop ball… Oh and barbies… Ah! I loved all my childhood games. Well, except Dodge-ball. ouch.

  164. i was never allowed to play with kids, especially games. i dont even know at age 63, how hopscotch was played or jacks. I had a strict mom.

  165. So many different games I loved…jacks, hopscotch, capture the flag. Inside games were parcheesi and monopoly. Summertime was spent swimming and play playing Marco Polo in the pool. Love the fabrics, like paper dolls

  166. Growing up recess always included tether ball! I remember learning the game and strategies used! So much fun. Can we go back to that simpler time? Well maybe in my dreams.

  167. Hide & Seek was my favorite because I would climb trees & nobody could find me! My boys, on the other hand, didn’t quite get the rules & would jump out & scare me to death! lol

  168. My favorite childhood game was Hide and Seek. We’d get the whole nieghborhood to play, backyards and front yards it would go on for hours. ;->

  169. I loved played night games every summer with all the neighborhood kids. We did Kick the Can, Jailbreak, Sardines and lots of others. Thanks for the chance to win!

  170. Thanks for the opportunity to win the new Moda fabric and the wonderful Aurifil thread. Favorite childhood game was probably Jacks.

  171. My goodness! One favorite game? I’d have to chose Red Rover, or Jacks, or night tag, or hide the button, or dominoes with my granddad. Such a blessing to have had such a wonderful childhood. The Flats bundle is so happy! Thank you!

  172. I used to love to play flashlight tag outside on warm summer night. Love the new line. Thanks for the chance to win!

  173. My favorite childhood game was jacks. My mother used to play with me, It’s so sad that I can’t get the plain rubber type ball that we used to use. The jacks now come with a superball type ball and it makes the game harder to play. I also liked pick up sticks!

  174. It is so hard to choose. I loved hide-and-go-seek in the dark with the neighborhood kids. Jacks with the girls and designing my own paper doll for single play.

  175. My favorite game was kickball. This was back in the days when kids would spend full summer days outside with the neighborhood kids. All the kids would figure out what they wanted to play. Most of the time for us, it was kickball…until we heard our mothers calling us home for dinner!

  176. Duck Duck Goose was always a favorite of mine in elementary school. Even now, if I pass through the gym at the school where I teach and a game is underway, I have to stop and watch for awhile.

  177. The two games I played most often were knuckle bones and skipping ( Do you call it jump rope in the US?) We would skip singly or with a long rope or double dutch, whichever was the current favourite. I think we played knuckle bones more in the winter when we were sometimes confined inside when it was raining.

  178. Kick the Can was my favorite childhood game… My brother and I spent every summer night for what seems like years playing with the neighborhood kids on our block until the street lights came on. 🙂

  179. My favorite childhood games were Hide and seek and Marko Polo. Loved playing both with my siblings and cousins when we were together at my grandmas house. Thanks for the chance to win.

  186. Our neighborhood gang loved to play our very own game called “cougar and the deer!” It was a mix between red rover and tag. Or “monkey catcher” as we would climb our tree and someone on the ground would have to try and touch us. So much fun!

  187. I remember playing jacks at almost every recess.
    LOVE this fabric and thread, what a GREAT prize!!!!

  189. After drooling over the beautiful fabrics & thread collection, I had to really think back to remember what my favorite childhood game was. When the weather was bad, Old Maid card game won hands down. When it was nice outside we played Red light green light, or Red Rover, Red Rover send ….. right over.

  190. What a wonderful giveaway!! My favorite childhood game was either “statues” or Kick the Can! Great memories. Freeze Tag was fun too!!

  191. I loved playing a card game called “Dirty Dog” around the old round oak claw foot kitchen table with my Grandmother, Great Aunt, and sisters. Oh, how we laughed and giggled into the night!!

  192. I loved card games, still do. I remember being on holidays, no TV and it rained all the time so we played all sorts of card game and this was where I learnt to play canasta still one of my favourite card games

  193. Hi We used to play lots of games, cards, monopoly, go!, north sea ( a game about drilling for oil), poleconomy (elections and taxation…) however my favourite would have been marbles- I had a huge tin of them- I wonder if they are called jacks in the US.

    It’s a wonderful collection of fabric and thread- thank you for the chance to win.

  194. “Witch in the Well” which was basically tag with a role play part at the beginning. My mom made it up I learned when I suggested it to any other kid ever.

  195. My favorite childhood game was neighborhood wide hide and seek. My greatest coup was one day shortly after Halloween, time was running out and I hadn’t found a hiding spot, the kid who was “It” was coming. So I just draped myself, all limp and saggy, over a split rail fence and the seeker walked right by thinking I was a discarded scarecrow or Halloween dummy. After he passed I was able to run to “home” and tag in without getting caught. I always got caught, because I was smallest.

  196. Red Rover and Sidewalk were always popular in our neighborhood. Great fun…and some good memories that I haven’t thought about in a long time. Great giveaway and thank you for the chance. 🙂

  197. My Dad taught us a card game, Fan Tan, and we would play it for hours. In fact, when my 3 sisters & I get together with my Dad, we still play Fan Tan – for hours. Thanks.

  198. I loved playing hide and seek with my cousins. We added a “spooky” dimension to the game because we played after dark. One of my cousins always jumped out from his hiding place to scare whomever walked by. Great memories.

  199. Big Boggle… I’ve always loved word games and my dad changed the rules for me when I was five to level the playing field!

  200. Riding bikes around the neighborhood with the many kids on our block was my favorite thing to do as a kid.

  201. When I was little I used to love to play house with my 2 sisters, Also we love dto play in Momas fabric scraps and make doll clothes for our baby dolls. On occasion we like dot go outside int he fields with our bog brother to look for baby…yep mice…They were so cute and pink when they were tiny…My brother was fascinated with them. Till Moma found out and fussed at us. then no morebaby mouse hunting for us. So he started sewing with us and made all of our dolls little doll quilts… conn_and_vans_mom(at)yahoo(dot)com

  202. My three sisters and I played a game called “Neighbors”. We would lay in bed at night before we fell asleep and talk about our make believe lives. We would have husbands and children and we would describe our houses and what we were cooking and wearing. Our one sister was a little pest and we would tell her she was a Nun in the convent and she had to pray in the corner.

  203. One of my favorite games as a child was Scrabble. It was a fun evening around my grandmother’s diningroom table with female family members engaged in what was usually a very competitive game! My mother would always accuse my grandmother of making up words and they would fuss at each other until the matter was decided. All in good fun though. 🙂

  204. Love the collection! My favorite game when I was little was Candyland. Then when I was a teenager we’d play Mille Borne all the time. We’d go to a fast food restaurant and pull out the cards and play.

  208. My favorite childhood game was Redrover, until we were no longer allowed to play because someone git a head injury falling.

  209. First off I love the fabric and of course the thread!! I guess growing up because we moved so much, my father being in construction, I played with my sisters playing dress up and pretending to be in plays and movies.

  210. Its hard to pick just one game, but there was a board game called Othello that my fifth grade teacher had and that was my favorite. I loved it when we had game time at school.

  211. My favorite childhood game was Four Square when I was at school. And Kick The Can when I was with my friends at home.

  212. My favorite childhood game was Fox and Geese. Snowy days with my Dad, uncle, siblings and cousins were the most fun with lots of laughter keeping away from the fox.

  213. Playing House, playing with dolls and making clothes for them, we would play dress up and make a house out of quilts, it would keep us busy for hours.

  214. Red rover we played all the time with my cousins six of us grew up together my mom kept up with us in the summers!

  215. Sardines! Similar to Hide-and-Seek but when you found the person hidden…you hid with them (ie..packed into a closet like sardines) and so on until the last person arrives….then that person was the next hidee! Thanks for he opportunity and the reminiscing!!

  216. Growing up my sisters and I played a fair bit of interesting and fun games. A classic that we loved to play with our neighbours was Cops and Robbers, however my favorite would have to be our pony time. My oldest sister was really into horses for a time when we were little. She worked at a stable and competed in events. When she wasnt at the stables, events or school, she would get us to play pony time in the basement. One of us, usually me, would hold onto a rope (because mom caught us tying it to our necks and quickly suggested that we couldn’t do it that way) and we would set up jumps around the “ring”. Then, with me pretending to be her pony, she would yell ‘giddy up’ and I would start running through the course to see if I could do it and how fast I could finish the course in. If I finished well, we would make the jumps harder and then try again until I couldn’t make them anymore. We would play this for hours! What a fun time! LOL

  217. My favorite game was playing pretend – we would play house, super heroes, store, make pretend soup with leaves, berries and dirt mixed in a bucket of water… hours of fun outside in my yard.

  218. My favorite game was “hideout”- my siblings and friends would pretend that we were like the Boxcar Children, and someone was looking for us. We’d set up our own makeshift house just like the Boxcar Children!

  219. My favorite game was “Sorry”. It was the only game everyone in the family could play together no matter the age. We wore our game out and had to replace it several times over the years.

  220. Love this fabric! , my favorite childhood game was duck duck goose because I could always out everyone 🙂

  221. We would play a combination of hide and seek and tag, and as older kids scavenger hunts were the best. Would love some lovely fabric, and thread.

  222. My family was big into card playing, so my favorite games were card games… Solitaire when nobody else was available, Double Solitaire if I could get an opponent. Also betting-type games like 21 and Poker, and the usual Go Fish and Rummy.

  223. My favorite game was hide and seek. We would run all over the neighborhood, hiding under or behind houses, trees, bushes! Everyone could play…..we had a great time!

  224. Love, Love the fabric line! Can’t wait to start playing with it. My favorite game as a child was Jacks. Everyone brought their own to school and couldn’t wait for recess so we could play!

  225. I favorite game to play was Candyland if I had friends over. If I was by myself, I was crazy for Colorforms (which, I guess is really a toy rather than a game)! I love Aurifil threads–I’ve been buying the big cones so I don’t run out!

  226. Love the colors! Thanks for the chance to win this wonderful giveaway! My favorite game, as a child, was marbles on the school grounds. I could beat anyone!
