Win a copy of Fresh Fabric Treats & A Fat Quarter Pack


Hey There!!!

I am so excited to be a part of the new Moda Bake Shop book, Fresh Fabric Treats! I wish I could share with you my fun project, but I can't yet... but I hope you will like it, I was so excited that I pulled it off!!


The other thing that I am so excited about is that I get to share it with you!!! The awesome folks at Moda Fabrics have generously offered to contribute to a very generous giveaway for my readers today!

There are 2 contests going on at the same time, the first one... Moda is donating for me to give away:

- A copy of Fresh Fabric Treats!!  

AND

-My favorite Moda pre cut- which just so happens to be a Fat Quarter pack!! (are you surprised, aren't I always sewing with fat quarters?)... What's even more exciting is that it will be in a yet to be named fabric line!! So a fun surprise for you!!

The second prize is pretty awesome too!

You know how I mentioned the "Progressive Dinner" going on right now? Well if you go around and leave a comment on EACH blog post, you will be entered to win:
- a copy of Fresh Fabric Treats
AND
-One of EACH Moda Precuts!! Yeah, that one charm pack, one fat quarter pack... you get the idea!

So here are the rules!

Leave a separate comment for each item you do:

-Leave  a comment here, say hi, let me know what project you'd love to see on Moda Bake Shop.
-Blog or Tweet about this giveaway and leave a link in your post (Facebook doesn't count as they do not want bloggers to use them as a forum for giveaways...)
-Follow or Subscribe to my blog, www.polkadotchair.com

A few other things:

-The book doesn't come out until May, so that's when your prize will arrive
-You MUST leave a way for me to contact you in your comment.

Ohh, your soup would be perfect today as it is going to be the coldest weekend here in the Northeast. I would like to see a lap quilt because they are great for gift giving.
Congratulations on being one of the designers in the book...how exciting!! Can't wait to see it.

Melanie said...

I love your journal--- Who invented the word "blog" anyway!?!?!? The best part about Moda Bake Shop is I can spend more on fabric by using free patterns. How to make it better??? I can't really think of anyway except maybe different colorways.... It could maybe entice different clad of quilters.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I love a lot of what has been on the BakeShop, But I would like to see some larger quilts. Especially something more toward young men, father's day gift, grandfathers. Moda has some wonderful lines, but they seem to miss out on the need of the quilter "what do I give a man"? Even some more of little boy.

Lee Ann said...

Hi!

I've been thinking about the Awesome Lap Quilt and the Dot Dot Dash Quilt for quite some time. So, I'd probably make one of those first. :-)

Aleta said...

I always love quilts, but would like to see more useful sizes, like twin or queen.

Rachel said...

Hi! First, would love to say that my favorite of your projects is the Thanksgiving Advent Calendar - sooo creative and I'd never thought of doing one of those let along quilting one! I want to work on making one for this next year. ;)

Hmm, I don't really know about projects, I've loved just about every one of the projects on the blog! Each one is soo creative and inventive and unique! *sigh* I always love the table runners though, those are my favorite. I'd like to see some more bags too I think. :)

But, I was thinking it would be cool for Moda to come out with a "cupcake" precut! :D HeHe! I just thought that would be so cute and great for anyone who wants to do a really small project or who might want to mix and match precut fabric lines. :) Fun! That way, you get a little "taste" of fabric without breaking the bank and you can get really creative with small projects or with mix-and-match. ;)
